We had a great trip to the Highlands and Loch Ness with Willy today. From the pick-up to the end, the excursion was a complete success and Willy was not only a great driver but also a great entertainer and storyteller. To get a first impression of the area, we can unreservedly recommend the excursion. Greetings to Willy from the Berliners!

Excellent trip! Guide was great, good knowledge of everywhere and a sense of humour! Didn’t feel rushed at all and got to easily see everything we wanted to. Top tip is to listen to the guides info about the Kelpies as there isn’t really any info on them at the site. Also, do the free tour at Stirling Castle if you can.

Awesome. Very good bus driver who told a sea of wonderful stories. His knowledge of the highlands and history is phenomenal. In addition, he was also a disc jockey on the bus with fun music with a Scottish story. Nice trip and definitely recommended. Also well organised.

The tour was perfect, the guide was entertaining and informative and even though the drive was long, the views were worth it. Lunch had vegan and vegetarian options, however it is a long trip so pack snacks. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Scotland.

Great release! So yes, there are a lot of buses, but for a first discovery of Scotland it's perfect! Sublime landscape, full of explanations told by the guide making the bus journey lighter! I totally recommend!
