While my mom was visiting me in Edinburgh last month we decided to do a one day tour to get a glimpse of the highlands!
In that sense, the tour was excellent, covering hundreds of miles all the way up to Inverness and back in a single day. Sadly, most of that time was spend looking through the bus window. Very little time to enjoy the sights or take pictures. That was to be expected though on a day trip of this scale and shouldn't really be considered a negative.
The locations were excellent and the tour guide fun and informative (if a bit too talkative for my liking). The bus itself could have been a bit more comfortable with a bit more space between the seats but overall those are minor points.
Would I suggest this tour? If you want to get a glimpse of a bit of everything of the highlands and you only have one day to spare then yes! If you can afford to spend a second day I would greatly suggest you do the two day trip instead, it covers the same areas but on a much slower and relaxing pace.
