      Wonderful day trip.
      We did a wonderful tour of the Scottish Highlands at the weekend. Connor was our guide and he was superb. Very knowledgeable, witty, friendly and added so much to our overall enjoyment of the day. The weather was fantastic and the scenery was spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and i will be recommending your company to others. Thanks!

      Excellent tour and guide
      Really well planned, enjoyable trip, with plenty of breaks and photo opportunities. The Highlands are beautiful. The trip was extra special because of our outstanding guide and driver Stevie B. Stevie is extremely knowledgeable but also funny and witty. He is also clearly a very proud Scotsman who loves his country. Highly recommend - 5/5

      Highland experience
      One of the best experience for countryside adventure. The Scottish Highlands are a pretty work of art, it looks differently in each season, I wanted to visit it on winter and summer again. The trip was smooth, the driver was nice and careful even in the most narrow country lane. I wast just devastated with the time we spent in Loch Ness and Glenfinnan viaduct, wasn't able to admire the viaduct closer as we are running out of time climbing the Viewpoint on the Hill, and then going down to Loch ness. I suggest you go directly closer to the viaduct and then to the lake. Though being on top would give you a different perspective.

      Special thanks for going above and beyond
      Not only was this tour demanding of five stars but extra praise has to be given to Tom and Mark as our tour guides. Regrettably I felt unwell on the trip and despite completing the Loch Lomond ferry cruise and arriving at Stirling Castle it was clear that it would be better if I left the tour early and returned to Edinburgh by train. Our guides couldn’t have been more helpful. They took my wife and I to the station. They checked on how I was feeling throughout. It was only a 48 hour bug but when you are miles away from anywhere it’s nice to have support. I can’t compliment our guides enough. As for the tour it was very well organised, staff awaiting our arrival at the meeting point, the coach was new and very clean. Ample time was given at each stop. For the price it was excellent value. On a personal note I hope that Toms trip the following day to London was a roaring success.

      We had a fabulous day, our driver put every effort into making sure we knew everything we needed to know, with a hint of humour. Nothing was too much trouble. You could tell he took pride in his job and loved his country and heritage

      Always a blast to visit the highlands, Truly amazing
      Timberbush Tours provided an unforgettable journey through Scotland's majestic Highlands, greatly enhanced by our driver, Steeve. His extensive knowledge of the area's rich history and culture, combined with a warm, engaging personality, made every moment enjoyable. Steeve's ability to blend historical facts with entertaining stories brought the stunning landscapes to life. The tour itself was impeccably organized, ensuring comfort and ample time at each scenic stop. Steeve's professionalism and passion truly made this experience exceptional. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to explore the beauty of the Highlands with a truly insightful and delightful guide.

      Once in a lifetime!
      Had the most amazing day trip, truly once in a life time experience. Stevie B our tour guide was incredible, he was so informative and funny! We brought our headphones on board and in the whole twelve hours we didn't use them once! Even the music was brilliant! We were incredibly comfortable, plenty of toilet stops and time for breaks. Didn't feel rushed, and we were well informed throughout the whole day. Every corner we turned on that coach we saw more beauty that Scotland offers. We were very fortunate to see Highland Coos, deer and even double rainbows out of the lochs! The photo opportunities were magnificent and we highly recommend the boat tour at Loch Ness that you can book through your guide on the bus! Thank you Stevie for telling us so much beautiful history your country offers, for the laughs, keeping us cosy and safe and a big shout out for playing Caledonia and Flowers of Scotland OUR FAVE TUNES.

      Visit to the Scottish Highlands
      The trip was perefectly planned and managed. Peter, the guide and the bus driver was hilarious and provided information on various spots throughout the journey. He has a good knowldge of the Scottish history and narrated everything in an engaging and interactive manner. The trip covered important stops in the Scottish highlands and was given perfect time gaps for each spot. Would suggest to carry a cold meal and a bottle of water with you for the journey.

    Holy Island: We didn’t get to do this part of the tour because of the tides. Understandably this was outside of the control of the company, who did a good job of notifying us of this change ahead of time. Unfortunately they had failed to adequately explain the changes to their staff, which delayed our departure. The alternate stop was Bamburgh castle, where we were told our entrance would be half price because of the itinerary change. But when we arrived there was no such offer and we ended up having to pay full price for an hour visit to a site that needed a minimum of 2 hours to cover.

    Alnwick Castle: When we arrived, we were told the castle and gardens were not to be missed and advised to purchase the combo tickets, which we did. Then we were told we only had two hours to visit, but the reality is you can barely see one or the other (castle or gardens) in that time frame, and certainly not both. The castle itself is simply amazing with tons of activities beyond the usual museum type displays, and the gardens are spectacular. You could easily spend an entire day here. We would have rather skipped Bamburgh and had more time at this stop.

    The Kingdom of Northumbria: We aren’t sure how this factors into the tour, or why it’s in the title? There were no other stops made, which there wouldn’t have been time for anyway, and other than a brief mention at the border there wasn’t much information given about it.

    Our guide was kind and professional and a good driver but appeared flustered from the start due to the change in itinerary. Usually with a tour like this there are stories and bits of history given about various sites along the way but our guide, who seemed very knowledgeable, didn’t share a lot. The driving distance for this tour is quite far for a day trip – we spent more time total in the bus than visiting the sites.

    Overall, I wish we had skipped this tour. I had really wanted to see Holy Island so when that part was cancelled we should have just asked for a refund and taken a regular bus or train down on our own to visit Alnwick. This option would have been far more enjoyable and affordable.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you felt that our Holy Island, Alnwick Castle & The Kingdom was a disappointing tour. We thank you for your feedback and to hear that you felt like the time could have been better managed on your tour. We try to be very careful with timings as we don't want to be out for too long, as that would be too tiring for both you and our guides. We do state this tour is a one-day experience that takes the scenic coastal route south into the Medieval Kingdom of Northumbria in North-East England, Visit the Holy Island* of Lindisfarne and explore the medieval market town of Alnwick and its castle. We do state clearly in on our website and the booking site that due to tide times on current dates this tour will not be visiting Holy Island, or this tour might run in reverse due to tide times. We apologize if you felt you were misled by the tour description. We've taken on your feedback about the driver-guide format and about the rest areas/activities available on the tour. Thank you again for sharing valuable feedback with us. Best wishes, Amy

    The tour guide David is terrible. We arrived the car park of Alnwick Castle at the meeting time and saw the coach door closed already. When we waved at him and asked him to let us in, he looked puzzled (obviously he didn't remember our faces, although it's a small group of people). Luckily, the driver Ben recognized us and we are allowed to come back to the coach. Counting the number of passengers at the coach before moving to another stops is extremely basic requirement of a tour guide.
    Furthermore, Ben is not good at storytelling (compared to other guides in the same company). He simply memorizes the info and read them at certain locations. Don't feel his passion about the job at all and that's probably why he's struggling to connect with us.
    The allocated timing at Holy Island is too short. We can only visit the castle and miss the Priory. The tour didn't stop at Flodden Field.
    I won't recommend my friends to join this tour and risk being left at Alnwick or Holy Island.

    Dear U7878CCcarolc, Thank you for sharing your feedback on your Holy Island, Alnwick Castle and the Kingdom of Northumbria tour. Please accept my apologies for the confusion at the Alnwick Castle car park. It is standard practice for our driver-guides to do a head count before leaving any location. I am happy to hear, however, that you were successfully able to re-join the tour. Thank you as well, for sharing your feedback about your driver-guide Ben's style of guiding. I am sorry to hear that you didn't connect to his style of guiding. I hope you had a wonderful time exploring Alnwick and Holy Island. Best wishes, Jodie

    On the overall it was a good trip, but the amount of time we had to visit everything was way too little. 1h at Holy Island (more likely 45min) is really nothing. I barely had time to see the priory - which was my main interest - and the castle because if you also want to walk towards it you have to rush everything, which is not really the point of a day tour I guess.
    Then, when we arrived at Alnwick castle, we have been informed that if you want to see the castle AND the gardens it will require a special ticket; and also, again, if you just visit the castle the amount of time is alright (2h30/3h), but if you also want to see the gardens, then, again, you have to hurry up a lot.
    The little village (20/30min) to take a break was a good idea though.
    Our bus driver was amazing! :-) Timberbush Tours have the greatest storytellers!
    I recommend this tour if you don't mind seeing things without taking your time, because it's still a very beautiful tour. But if you want to take your time, then I would recommend you to go with another company or by yourself.

    I did the Holy Island, etc. tour with Connor as the driver/guide. Tropical Storm Babette had just blown into the UK so there was lot of wind and rain to contend with. :) But Connor did an excellent job! His music playlist was great (I loved that he played a lot of Dire Straits) and he definitely knew the history of the region. The Holy Island was fantastic and on a nice day, an hour there would not be long enough. I loved the Priory and the views of the castle. Alnwick Castle and its village were very interesting. The castle is quite majestic and its State Rooms are full of history. The gardens are also lovely, although by that point we were in a total downpour so I didn't spend as much time in them as I would have liked. I would highly recommend this tour, rain or shine.

    Extremely disproportionate time usage. The shuttles at the island aren’t there anymore and we only had an hour before we had to leave, so we had to pick between seeing the castle or the monastery. We also had to pay the entrance fee for all attractions. I didn’t get to see either because it was a twenty minute walk to the castle, and by the time I got there, it was time to head back. One of the passengers was late coming back to the bus and the driver threatened to leave her there (she misunderstood what time we were leaving and probably wanted to actually see both the main attractions like advertised.) When we left 20 minutes late, we went to Alnwick Castle and we had THREE hours there. The driver said if we get bored, we can walk around the town. Why did I pay almost $80 plus entrance fees to be “bored”? We easily could have spent an hour and a half there and been done. After this, we went to Chillingham Castle and were told we’re just stopping by. Why? The time usage made no sense at all. Why couldn’t we have spent more time on the Holy Island? If the organizers knew there was no shuttle, why would they make the schedule the same amount of time as if the shuttles were still working? Total waste of time and money. If you can find a way to Beal, join the Pioneer Walk group that goes across barefoot. Hopefully they won’t threaten to leave you stranded because you want to see the advertised attractions 🫤

    Dear landongopnik, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that the tour did not meet your expectations. Due to the time it takes to get to the castle we do not advise our passengers to visit the castle, but rather to visit the Priory. We do allocate the majority of time on this tour to Alnwick as there is so much to see there: Alnwick Castle, Alnwick Gardens and the town itself. All are beautiful and very interesting. We advise clearly before booking that attractions aren't included in our prices and we certainly do not threaten our customers. We do however have to advise people to be back on time as it delays the tour for everyone else if they're not. We are also limited on Holy Island by tide times and would not want the whole group to get stuck there for the night. Again, we apologise that the tour wasn't to your liking. Kind regards, Lisa

    We absolutely loved this tour with Paul Henderson as our guide! He was so knowledgeable while also incredibly entertaining and funny. The tour itself was wonderful and we loved every stop. What we loved just as much were the rides on the bus between locations. Paul played Scottish (or English) music for us in between his recounts of the history. Seriously awesome! We loved how proud he is to be Scottish and couldn’t have asked for a better tour or guide.

    The meeting place was easy to find and the driver and guide were incredible! The driver was able to get around with no problems and the guide was a professional bard. She was able to give alot of information on the history of Scotland and the places we were going. I had a really great time visiting Alnwick Castle and Holy Island.

    We took 2 tours with Timberbush Tours. We took Holy Island, Alnwick Castle & Kingdom of Northumbria with driver Andrew T and Rosslyn Chapel, Scottish Borders & Abbotsford house with Donald. While both drivers were knowledgeable on each tour our favorite was Donald T. He was much more fun and engaging with us. Both tours were great locations to visit. Keep in mind you will still need to pay to enter each specific chapel or Castle location but still worth the trip. Would definitely do it again

Those tours both cover some great locations and it's interesting to go down south rather than heading up north! Hopefully we will see you on some other tours soon! Best wishes, David

    Amazing tour conducted professionally by our tour guide and driver Neil. This man is wonderful, loves his job, truly informed about this tour and very knowledgeable. My day went exceptionally brilliantly and all my expectations fully met. I highly recommend Timberbush Tours and if you are lucky, be in the company of Neil. I’m already thinking about booking my next tour with them. Thank you!!

    Amazing place. 1st of all I have to state 99% of people should not and probably will not be able to walk all the way to this island! Even when the tide is out, it is deep in parts, has sinking sand and has at times, tics & bugs which latch onto your dogs. Use the Causeway - by car; or bus provided. This is very picturesque. Has a castle and very old & beautiful church with some ruins. Plenty of walking around the island with plenty cafés & restaurants. There are amenities (small shops) and plenty gift shops. We didn't get a signal on our phone at the large carpark so make sure you have change - if you can't use a Parking App. You must be aware of the moving tide times - which vary daily!! A must see.
