This is a great tour! We had great tour guides (Rich, Lou, Owen) and they were very knowledgeable about all the sights we saw in Scotland. The bus was just the right size too, to get to know the other guests and for travelling through some of the tight roads. The only thing that was not the best was one of the hotels we stayed at. I find because I travel with my daughter and we always are given two twin beds, that we don't always get the best rooms. We were stuck in the back hallway of this hotel and unfortunately heard the customers coming and going through the night. Also the food and service and cleanliness were not great with this particular hotel. Other than that, everything else was wonderful!

Had an absolute blast thanks to our excellent tour guide Calum! Met a bunch of other solo travelers to share the experience with, met locals with our guide's help, and got to see some of the most beautiful places in the world. Cannot recommend this enough!

Spectacular scenery with great guide named ROSS.

Saw a lot; did a lot. Ross was a great guide telling us stories about folklore, Scottish history, playing music for us on the long drives & an overall pleasant guy for a 5 day tour.

Great trip!

Trip was great! Guide knowledgeable and funny. You just need to update itinerary, we did not go to Ullapool.

The Driver Tom was great, also his knowledge, was very courteous and helpful
