What people are saying about Perth, Scotland

We absolutely adored Derrick! He was such a great guide, we shared plenty of laughs. He gives off true Scotland wilderness vibes, and you can tell that the knowledge he has is his personal passion as well as his day job. He was an excellent driver and we had a truely incredible day. I would urge anyone I know to take this tour and to keep their fingers crossed that they get Derrick as their guide!

went with the whole family and had the best time! Our guide dean was spot on, made sure we all had a good laugh and that we were all safe at the same time. Can’t wait to come back but for the bigger rapids! The photos included in the trip just make it that extra bit special too so you have something to take home to remeber the day! Highly recommend

Great adventure experience! Watch out for the guides though! Some are sneaky - you might find yourself out of the boat when the water's calm.

Frankie was brilliant, made us all feel very relaxed and we all had a great time, would highly recommend this activity!

Great tour. We saw much of Scotland in one day. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.
