The tour was an amazing experience. The highlands was everything I ever imagined and more. Simply breathtaking. Our guide, Michael, was awesome. He was knowledgeable about all the places we went to and was a fantastic storyteller. He is a cool dude. I stayed at this lovely B&B, The Croft House. My hosts are the warmest and most hospitable people. Overall, the tour was worth it. I definitely would not think twice about booking through this app again in my future travels.

Die Tour war fantastisch. Wir haben in drei Tagen so viel gesehen und an den spektakulärsten Aussichtspunkten Halt gemacht. Jim, unser Driver-guide, hat Auf den Stau am letzten Tag sehr flexibel reagiert und alles versucht, dass alle eine gute Zeit hatten. Außerdem hat er zwischendurch immer wieder Anekdoten und Funfacts zu Schottland erzählt. Die Tour hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt.

Our guide Andrew was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and also funny. You could tell he really had a love for Scotland.

Our guide, Andrew, was great and got us to all the amazing spots to see

Neil was amazing!! Would go back again next time in Scotland
