The guide is a must-go in Inverness if you don't have a car. Tour guide Ted really did his job by telling us the history and culture of Scotland along the way. Normally, you would only visit places in Isle of Skye and taking pictures (+ long and boring commute). With the tour, you can get the best photo spots plus the history behind those places. That makes the tour more than simply an Instagram post.

Great day out and a full day as well. Lots to see weather permitting as in mountains can dissapear behind cloud very quickly which is an indication that rain can come and go quickly as well. A lunch stop is appreciated so best get a take away as the covid restriction can mean wait for a table. Our guide Chis certainly knew his history so we learned about Scotland.

Chris was amazing! He was so funny and knowledgeable and we had an amazing time! He even took us to a few local spots that weren’t included in the overview of the itinerary on GetYourGuide, and it made the trip even cooler! I would 10/10 recommend

We had Robert for our guide he was fantastic good knowledge, good stories and terrible jokes but kept the bus a happy bus. There was enough breaks for food and toilet.

Ray was an excellent tour guide, a quintessential Scot and had a plethora of knowledge of Scottish history. The music he chose to play was just perfect.
