Lovely trip o take us outside Edinburgh. Funny guide Kari. Worth your time to see William Wallace monument, the short hike was perfect to see some nature and stretch your legs and the whisky stop was a nice addition. Especially the watch cats.....

Great day out!
Nov 2019
We were collected promptly from the advertised departure stop. The guide Lee was a great driver and courteous and had lots of very interesting information to share, not just whisky or sport but history and fun facts with a bit of humour thrown in too.
Wallace monument, would of been nice if we had arrived with enough time to climb the structure but the views and hike were very impressive.
Glenturret was great and distillery tour was superb with lots of free whisky but cafe whilst they are refurbishing is to be desired, expensive and very little bland choice.
The hermitage is always worth a visit and is a beautiful place in Autumn. Dunkeld was a good wee stop to rest up with a pint before we carried on back to Edinburgh. All in all a 9.5 outta 10 - if only id got to the top of Wallace!

Great Day trip
Oct 2019
Caitlyn was an amazing tour guide. We enjoyed learning a bit of Scottish history from her. The first stop at the William Wallace tower was very interesting. We loved the distillery and learning how scotch was made. The trip into the forest to see the waterfall was nice, We love being in nature and wished we could have stayed there longer. Overall it was a great day and a great tour.

Very Enjoyable!
Sep 2019
We had a really nice day exploring the Scotland Highlands, learning alot about the history of the area and getting an informative tour of the Glenturret distillery. Be warned, a few of the stops involved 'hiking' a bit. It wasn't especially challenging, but if someone in your group is disabled of extremely out of shape it will be difficult for them to keep up.
Our guide (I think her name is Terry) kept us moving and entertained on the bus. She had much info about local history and threw in her own wit to keep us on our toes. We enjoyed her commentary.
The whiskey tour was very informative and interesting. There is a tasting afterwards, but it consists of sampling two different whiskeys, prepare to pay more if you want to try others.

Fantastic day trip
What a wonderful day trip out of Edinburgh, into the beautiful Scottish countryside! The customer service offered by Highland Tours was exceptional From the minute they welcomed us on the Royal Mile. Big shout out to Carolina’s engaging, informative and charismatic personality, throughout the day. Even when we had issues on the first stop with a family misinterpreting the return time, she handled it with charm and poise. I’d highly recommend this day trip!
