Really great tour! Euan our tour guide was very well spoken and educated on Scottish history. The bus ride was a little long, but was well worth it because of the frequent outstanding stops for pictures and snacks. We spent the extra 20 quid for the Loch Ness boat tour and that was also well worth the cost.

I loved. We pass through breathtaking landscapes, it's a beautiful trip. The guide was spectacular, clarified all doubts, advised places to eat and told parts of Scottish history, according to the places visited. I advise a lot.

If this is your first time to Edinburgh this is for sure the way to go. The guides were informative and interesting and the buses came often. A great way to see Edinburgh!

The landscapes were lovely. Our guide, Thomas, was terrific. The history was engaging. The scottish music was appropriate and appreciated. We really LOVED this tour!!

Thanks to Owen for these explanations and his humor. The high lands are magnificent I do not recommend a cruise on Loch Ness without interest
