Fabulous! Jane

If you have time to do this 8-day tour, do it. A wonderful mix of Scottish history, pre-history, castle ruins, beautifully restored castles, and fabulous views. Every day was full and our guide for the first 4 days, Chris, kept us all on schedule and entertained with just the right amount of stories, but enough quiet time, too. And great driving Chris! Having a full day to explore Skye and Orkney was fantastic. I can't image how other companies can rush people through these magical places in less than a full day. Andy was our guide for the last 4 days and the expert on Orkney. This tour involved a lot more walking than I anticipated, but well worth it! The boat ride on Loch Ness to Inverness was very enjoyable. All in all, excellent tour.

Trip of a lifetime Shannon

This tour took us all over Scotland and included incredible scenic vistas, castles and ruins, waterfalls and whisky, ferry rides and a two-day stay in both Skye and Orkney, remnants of the Neolithic age, and ample time each night to eat, drink, and explore for ourselves. We had excellent B&B en-suite accommodations at each stop. Our drivers, Andy (Days 1-4, Edinburgh to Highlands and Skye) and Eddie (Days 5-8, Orkney to Edinburgh) were kind, patient, informative, witty, and helpful. We travelled with Highland Experience in 2018 and had such a great time, we decided to book with them again during this trip. So glad we did! Definitely the trip of a lifetime.
