This tour was a great way to see the ins and outs of Scotland

We got a 2 day ticket, unfortunately missed the first day but were able to join the second. I wish they had refunds or credits for these type of things but unfortunately they don’t (make sure you don’t get lost) but It was an amazing experience, got to see lots of historical sights. Amish, our guide was super sweet, went above and beyond to make sure we could make it the second day. He was a great history teller and really funny. Would recommend :)
