We were only in Scotland for a short trip so we decided to take this tour since it cover a nice area. We were not disappointed. Our weather for late October was perfect. It was a bright crisp fall day. The tour guide, Peter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Brought us to the most scenic parts and we got the most fantastic photos. It was a full day tour and we enjoyed every minute. This tour is highly recommend by me.

Day-long van excursion to visit the countryside and a couple of picturesque towns near Glasgow. Beautiful scenery, outside views of several castles, and a good lunch at a harborside restaurant in Oban. No fault of the tour operator, but the weather was just so-so; a bit of rain and fog made it hard to appreciate some of the scenic views.

Ian was a fabulous tour guide, wonderful story teller! He really set the tone for everything we saw with his historical references and music. We loved everything about it. The bus was very comfortable. I honestly have no complaints. Only thing I could think to change is cut down a few of the stops by 5 min and add that time to the Oban stop, as some of the fish and chips meals took a while to get put out which takes a bit away from walking around.

This was a great trip. Guide was very knowledgeable. Everyone had fun even the kids our kids are pre-teens. This is a long tour 11 hours which I wouldnt recommend for small children.

This day could not have been better!!! We are SO glad we chose this tour, as it was the perfect introduction to the Highlands. Photos and words cannot even come close to conveying how jaw-droppingly gorgeous all the scenery was.

Cameron was an outstanding tour guide. A retired park ranger, he had such amazing knowledge of the landscape and the history, as well as an awesome sense of humor. We really loved his occasional musical interludes...entertaining AND educational! Which was basically the theme of the whole trip. I have never been so freezing, yet so happy. The van was super comfy and cozy, though...it was just REALLY cold outside!!

I went with a dear friend, and my husband is now totally and justifiably jealous. We are already planning our own road trip, where we will see these sights again well, the first time for my husband, plus more!

Thank you to Cameron and Rabbie's the tour company!! 5 stars are not enough!
