What people are saying about Glencoe

A great experience with a great bus driver/tour guide - Anthony rocked it. Wit and interesting facts from the Highlands. Despite the long drive, the day trip was never uninteresting or boring! Absolute recommendation. Although for us the Highlands were much more beautiful and impressive than the actual highlight Loch Ness.

Incredible trip! We got to see so much and the long travel time was worth it. The driver/guide was funny and told all sorts of stories about Scotland's clans, battles etc. We were very pleased!

Amazing and excellent experience, our tour wouldnt be complete without this 12hr trip.especially our driver who made it so lively, his patience and energy was incredible..not a boring trip..

The trip was amazing! Bryan was an incredible guide and driver and we had a lot of fun on the way. The views of the Highlands doesnt have any comparation!

Great day, comfortable bus, nice views :) our guide told us many stories during the ride :)
