Scotland is beautiful
Jun 2021 • Solo
The trip to the Scottish highlands, the lochs (lakes) and the Isle of Skye was a beautifill journey that met expectations. The trip gave me the opportunity to see the stunning and diverse landscapes of Scotland. The trip was very well organised and the tour guide Stevie P did an exceptionall job looking after the group for 3 days. He was very enthusiastic, knowledgaable and amicable which made the trip a big success. Tte hospitality across Scotland was genuine and uplifting. Thank you.

Great tour guide but tour itinerary could be improved
Sep 2020 • Family
We do generally enjoyed this tour - great guide, nice group, great stories to share, guide has good knowledge of history and places, amazing scenery, great experiences in Jacobite steam train and breathtaking view of the Glenfinnan viaduct, clean and comfy accommodation in Isle of Skye. However, there were a few insignificant stops (ok it maybe interesting to know) along the way with very little time left to explore Loch Ness itself. We were only given about an hour. We only had time to eat lunch there; no time to admire the lake or canal or take a cruise or even shop for souvenirs!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us here at Highland Explorer Tours and i'm really glad to hear you enjoyed the tour along with the guide's tales of Scotland's history. The Glenfinnan Viaduct is quite exceptional; we hope you managed to snap a picture! I'm sorry if you felt your time at Loch Ness was too short however we hope you got a good lunch at Fort Augustus! Since the first night is spent up on the Isle of Skye we need to have time-allowances to get there at a reasonable hour. Best regards, Tom

Fantastic and Educative.
Aug 2020
A good way to see Scotland. Very amazing and educative tour with lots of folktales. The tour guide Ian was very knowledgeable and pointed out where some amazing scenes from some movies and TV shows were shot. You may need to brace up for the cold and sometimes wet weather.

Excellent way to see the highlights of the Isle of Skye
We were a little sceptical about booking a group tour with the current covid situation but our worries quickly disappeared. Temperature checks were taken before getting on board, there was plenty of room to spread out and distancing on the bus wasn’t a problem with such a small group, hand sanitizer was available and everyone was really respectful about keeping their face masks on while on the bus. Our tour guide Dougie was great and he really knew his stuff. Would highly recommend!

AMAZING TOUR with YVONNE
Dec 2019
We took the off-peak 3-Day Isle of Skye tour with our AMAZING tour guide Yvonne! This was my first tour (my partner has done them before) and I absolutely loved it. Yvonne had a perfect flexible itinerary to make the most out of Scotland's highlands despite the weather. It was nasty outside when we stopped at the Loch Ness so instead of spending the couple of hours there, Yvonne suggested we make it a quick stop and we were able to squeeze in the Eilean Donan Castle in addition (not on the regular itinerary but a perfect indoor activity). The accomodation was lovely, the staff were amazing, and the town Portree that you stay was very cute.Yvonne was super informative and wonderful at keeping the group involved and on schedule. We saw many beautiful places and I felt like we were given a good basis of history and culture. I would definitely book another tour with this company.
