    Hello Steven H.! (From Outlander tour 12.-13.09) I hope that your promises are the truth and you read every review of your Tours on Tripadvisor (if not I‘ll travel back through the stones and catch you 😉) I have to say that this Highland Experience tour was the highlight of

    Our guide was Steven H. (we hope that his last name starts with H because we do NOT mean Steven B.) And honestly, Steven H. is an absolute secret to us. How old is this guy? 20 or 60? We couldn‘t tell it. We couldn‘t even decide if he liked or hated us. Is the way he presented

    Fantastic experience with beautiful scenery and Tommy as our handsome Scottish tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed being a Sassenach immersed in the Scottish history and exploring the Outlander locations, while imagining I was back in 1743.

    Hi Jeanette, Sorry to hear you did not completely enjoy your tour with us! I am disappointed you did not contact us directly throughout the tour or afterwards, in order for us to provide a suitable solution. Your driver-guide has received training on our 2 Day Outlander Tour and was able to provide information on the locations visited in relation to Outlander. There were no complaints made throughout the tour to the driver-guide or to our main office and all passengers appeared happy to the driver-guide throughout the tour. We have contacted you directly in order to gain further information on some of your statements in order to improve our tours in the future. I hope you enjoyed the destinations visited on the tour and the rest of your time in Scotland. Kind Regards, Fiona

    This was an awesome tour. The bus was comfortable and spacious. Brian Sharpe, our driver/guide was brilliant! Funny, friendly, full of information and really good at putting people at ease. Great music too! The stops were well spaced and timed and the drive was full of scenery.
