      Great Tour expertly led
      Great tour expertly led by Will, his stories about the Highlands and its history were fantastic. Excellent visits to Dunrobin Castle and John OGroats including a local distillery. When the coach broke down on the way home Tonks came to the rescue very quickly. Will found us a local hotel for complementary drinks, a log fire and great views. Almost as if it was planned! Highly recommend this company

      A waouw trip !!
      Breathtaking landscapes !! A trip with a great guide Brian who passionately shared the history of Scotland. We didn't see the time of the bus ride pass thanks to his funny anecdotes and his music. We visited the Urquart Castle, cruised on the Loch Ness, stopped to see Glencoe, Fort William and the Hairy Coo … With the sun, Just a perfect Day 🤩

      Experiencing Highlander Hospitality
      What an incredible trip! The history of Scotland, while plagued by military loss, was enchanting to hear about. The natural scenery of abundant trees, magnificent mountains, and ever flowing lochs took my breath away. Not to mention, the “highlander hospitality” is very real, possibly even understated. From the locals in Fort William, to the folks over at Pitlochry, we could just feel the warmth and the authentic Scottish culture overflow. But the very cherry on top of this wonderful adventure was our tour guide Euan. His storytelling ability is second to none, fully immersing us in the Scottish culture and answering each and every question we had (and there was many). Euan made me and my mother feel very safe, and he was incredibly accommodating as well.

      Fabulous!
      A fabulous tour which gave us a great flavour of the Highlands. Well planned to see important sites and beautiful scenery, including seeing and following the Harry Potter Jacobite train 😃. Coach very comfortable and plenty of comfort breaks. Timing at stops sufficient too. Icing on the cake was our guide and driver, Martina. She was excellent. Gave us a comfortable and safe drive, along with lots of interesting info as well as her fun, uplifting personality. Thanks Martina !! 👍Also, Timberbush Tours for a great day 😀

      Pure Magic in the Highlands
      Truly magical. We had plenty of time to site see, take photos, and soak in the beauty of nature. Our guide, Lial, is an excellent story teller, making the bus part of the tour an attraction in itself. Explored all of the “hits” as well as some hidden gems not included on the itinerary. Highly recommend!

      Shop Assistants are fraudsters and give your change in old pound notes - beware, especially foreign visitors.
      PLEASE DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR THE FIRST & LAST GIFT SHOP IN JOHN O'GROATS. I went there on Friday 17th May and was given change in 3 pound notes, which I admit I didn't realise as I was distracted, and I am not Scottish, and did not recognise their colour. They were pointed out to me when refused when I tried to spend them. I am hoping my bank will exchange them for me. I have emailed the manager, who is probably aware of the scam and has made quite a bit of money over the years, as before writing this review, I read of this happening to someone else in 2000!!! Before I knew about the notes, I tried to ask the shop assistant about an item, and almost asked her if ' she had got out of bed the wrong side', as she was not interested in helping me, or even speaking to me, and never smiled. You would get more conversation from the sign outside. First and Last is the right name.

      Beautiful Scottish highlands
      I took the tour of Applecross and Torridon with our guide/driver Mike. He was very knowledgeable and funny, his Scottish accent was delightful to hear. He told us many stories and took good care of us. We took the Pasage of the cattle N500 route that supposed to be very spectacular but due to bad rain and thick fog we could not see much of these spectacular views. Other views were absolutely stunning and they make you fall in love with Scotland and want to come back. The tour is very well organised and a pleasant day spend. It is delightful to see how all drivers take pride in being Scottish and it melts uour heart. Well done Mike . Highly recommend Timberbush Tours with its alll brilliant people 💚🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

      Unbelievable 2 day Tour!
      This was a 2 day tour to the Highlands, Loch Ness and overnight in Inverness. Our driver was Lorna. She was absolutely amazing! She told us all about the entire history of Scotland with dates over 3000 years ago. She was so flexible with times and she kept us on time as well. Lorna is such a sweet guide and a very good driver as well. Take this tour with her if you can. It was truly amazing!

      John O’Groats Tour
      Alex was our tourguide for the trip to John O’Groats. They say that the devils is in the details and his attention to detail was on point. At the start he offered extra cables for phone charging should anyone have forgotten theirs. He offered to help with photo taking at key spots. And he even lent some mini binocs to one young participant. Very accommodating!

      Andrew J is NOT a driver.
      He can drive. He can guide. But his true talent is storytelling. He’s also kind and funny and caring. I’m sure Timberbush has other very professional and very charming guides, but I feel very lucky we got Andrew. And my tour-mates agree. Ask for Andrew if you like History with a capital “H” as well as small everyday stories of common Scottish islanders. As for Timberbush, their customer service is outstanding. I had a problem on line and I was able to finalize the purchase by chat. I had questions and the wrote back almost immediately. I also was treated to a coffee when asked to change buses (a minor inconvenience) before departing Edinburgh. If you come to Scotland choose Timberbush. I had both a magical and a very human experience. I will definitely come back for other tours. Elena

      Cannot recommend this tour with Chris enough!
      I and my friend took this tour on 28th-29th of March and have only one word for it FANTASTIC From the booking process to the actual tour, all went smoothly! A huge thanks to our tour guide and driver CHRIS, he was funny, very informative and looked after us really well. He made sure we saw most of the sites with ample time to enjoy the sites. It did not feel rushed at all, instead you could see how much he loves his work and is great at what he does! Thank you Chris! You made our trip! Highly recommend!! Thank you Chris and tours 🥂

      Best Skye Trip
      The 2 day Isle of Skye tour was my first time going on a multi day guided tour (done day trips before) and it was the best!! Our guide was Chris and he was an absolute delight throughout the two day journey. He was very passionate and knowledgeable about Skye. He was kind, funny and had a lot to share about Skye and Scotland as we travelled across the breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of the island. We stopped at many locations with ample amount of time at each, yet not feeling rushed and making it feel very relaxing and enjoyable. The perfectly timed wc breaks by Chris added to the comfort of the trip as well. We had good weather even in March to make the trip even more wonderful. I would definitely love to visit Skye again !

      Best Tour & Guide! A magical Isle
      We had a blast on the 2 day Isle of Skye tour. Sandy was a fantastic host, guide, and driver. He made the trip super fun and enjoyable. We were really able to see all of Skye effectively. There was ample time to do all the hikes, get photos, and tour areas. Nothing felt rushed. It was very laid back and relaxed. I would definitely do more tours if we had the time. Great company.

      10/10 experience
      My mother and I really enjoyed our day-trip to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. We had gone to the Isle of Skye with Timberbush the day before and liked it so much that we booked this one the following day. And again, everything was perfect! Hats off to our guide Liall Mackenzie - being able to hear stories from the Highlands from a true Highlander was such an amazing experience. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and a great driver. The cruise, the castle, the views...unforgettable. Thanks Liall and Timberbush! I'll be back soon and will sure be taking other tours with Timberbush.

    It was cold, it was due to rain, it was early on the 29th December but we all headed off with Ray, our guide, for a trip round all the pretty points between Inverness and Skye. The Highlands are such a beautiful place that the weather really doesn't matter. The super frosty start meant Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness were shown at their Wintry best and the trip to Skye was a never ending sequence of oohs and aahs at the spectacular scenery. Eilean Donan Castle (tourist Mecca), although shut and shrouded in drizzle was, as ever, stunning and Skye gave us misty mystery all day.

    Ray, our guide, was brilliant, regaling us with stories, history, every cliche bit of Scottish music and some very good not-so-cliche too. He kept us all masked and Covid safe, all awake, all laughing and all interested with his passion for the country and culture shining through. It was a long day for us but even longer for him in sometimes treacherous driving conditions but his energy never waned so well done that man. There were plenty of pee stops, even more photo stops and the keen eyed among us even saw a wildcat in deepest darkest somewhere on the way.

    The only down side was Portree where we were left to fend for ourselves for lunch. It was absolutely tipping down and so many places were either full or closed. Perhaps an arranged lunch booking may be better. Oh, and on the trip home the bus got uncomfortably hot and stuffy, with condensation drips landing regularly from the skylight above my head.

    All in all a fantastic day with a great guide and some of the best scenery anywhere in the world. Thank you.

    I’ll start with the positive... we had a great day on the Isle of Skye. Our guide Ryan had a lot of great stories to tell and seemed very knowledgeable of Scottish history. The sights were beautiful and Ryan took us to so many amazing places and views. The amount of gorgeous pictures we got from this day was unreal. We appreciated that Ryan took us up to Quiraing viewpoint for extra photos since the castle was closed for the season.
    The negatives... we went on multiple other tours during our vacation and were given warning ahead of time that places along the way were going to be closed. It would have been nice to get a heads up from the company that the castle was going to be closed.
    Now, as I said, Ryan was extremely knowledgeable and provided great information on Scottish history, but it felt like he was trying to prove something with his driving. It seemed like he drove unreasonably fast and wild the entire trip. We rode with multiple different tour drivers during our vacation and definitely noticed how driving was different in Scotland versus home, but Ryan’s driving seemed extreme. This trip was essentially 11 hours of amazing views between moments of feeling like we were going to die in a fiery crash down the side of a hill in Skye. Even at the end of the tour when Ryan mentioned leaving a review, he “jokingly” said not to mention his driving, he just knows the proper way to drive. Although Scottish drivers are slightly more aggressive that what I’m used to at home, I can guarantee from all the other rides we took on our trip that driving at a ridiculous speed around one lane blind corners on backroads while hitting bumps that fling me out of my seat and make my husband hit his head on the ceiling above him, is not “proper driving”.
    Overall, the trip wasn’t terrible but we aren’t likely to book a tour with Timberbush the next time we’re in Scotland.

    Ryan was a great guide, very knowledgable and clearly extremely passionate about Scotland! The bus left promptly at 8am and we saw most of what the lovely isle has to offer. My only criticism would be that the day is extremely long and it probably could've been cut down by an hour or so rather than killing time along the way. Would've been nice for some downtime on the bus to take in the scenery rather than ongoing commentary but would recommend as great value!

    Omg this tour was spectacular and it was All thanks to our wonderful tour guide Tonks. She made the experience amazing. Some how even in the January weather she managed to perfectly time her stops with the snow and rain and the sky was clear for every time we stepped out. She was an experienced tour guide and coach driver and would happily book with Timberbush tours again.

    I went on this tour today. It was really beautiful. Drizzled a little here and there so a wee bit foggy, but that didn't dim the beauty of the natural landscapes. Our driver Ryan was excellent, informative and made pit stops very frequently for beautiful scenic quick photoshoots. He made the drive comfortable and fun. One of my personal favourite locations and included in the tour is Kilt Rock. The waterfall there is magnificent. I loved the coloured buildings of Portree too and the fish and chips by the harbour! (Apparently the best!)

    A very highly recommended tour if you are in The Highlands or around Scotland. My sister and I were on tour on the 2nd December, with a fabulous weather, touring for the day around the Isle of Skye. Our guide, Ray was excellent. He entertained the group with a lot of stories and with a fantastic Scottish music selection (it is a pity, I can’t find you in Spotify though). He was very lay back however he was very fair and firm re: the use of face mask indoors. He did make our trip very safe, with alcohol gel inside the mini-van to use and good ventilation when travelling.
    It is important to support small business and even more in C-19 times. So for everyone around the world, this is the 5* company to use if you are in Scotland. High quality, safe and thinking about the customer and their needs. Thanks Ray and hopefully, I will be able to find the marvellous music.

    We had Tonks as our tour guide, and she absolutely made the day. She wasn’t just a tour guide, she was a DJ/storyteller/driver/comedian extraordinaire!

    The tour itself felt very complete; there was sightseeing, photo opportunities, stories, good food, and surprise hot chocolate. Overall we loved the tour and look forward to coming back to see Tonks again.

    Ray our tourguide greeted us at the Inverness Bus Station early at 7:45. He was very hospitable and was filled with great humor that enlivened our bus trip experience especially since we had gone across the country all day. His storytelling was wonderful! It made me very interested (as if I wasn’t already) about the people of Scotland. Vast and complex, humble and proud, as well as dark and tragic are some adjectives that I might use to describe what he told us of the history. He unabashedly told us the unfiltered history of Scotland that some other tour guides may perhaps shy away from, this we appreciated. He tied in a number of Hollywood movies that helped us relate to the beautiful landscape, sprinkled in his wonderful playlist to truly enhance our experience as we looked outside and imagined the legends, the Vikings, the monarchs and the Jacobite rebellions. It truly shows that Timberbush tours takes extra care in choosing the right tour guides because Ray was completely outstanding! We want to return again someday, perhaps climb a Monroe and experience more of the highlands. We cannot recommend this tour enough for anyone who wants to have an awesome time in Scotland.

    Wishing you a very merry Christmas,

    Andrew and Sam from Guam.

    Luke “Skye-walker” was all you could want in a tour guide to the Isle of Skye. He’s a transplant from London but it is clear that he is so because he truly loves the land and this magical Isle. He made sure that our trip was immersive, including music, stories, history, and actually getting off the bus and experiencing. The music choices were on point, he dressed the part, needs to work on the Scottish accent a bit, lol, but all kidding aside it was a truly enjoyable day. It’s a long day because of the distance between Inverness and Isle of Skye but he made it fly by with quirky quizzes and trivia about Scottish and Skye history, random facts that were fun to learn and overall seems to be obsessed with quality and experience for his clients. Our weather was perfect which helped but even if not, Luke seems to see the rainbow in every situation. And then actual rainbows. And goats. And little lambs. I would whole heartedly recommend, if not insist on requesting him specifically to any of my clients or friends and family who were coming to the area. Isle of Skye is easy to love but Luke is diligent on making it a whole sensory experience, having us pose for pics that will last a lifetime and having the perfect song, joke, story, or added personal touch at just the right time. A thoroughly enjoyable experience! Oh, and of course, don’t forget about the Hairy Coos! That stop alone with his carrots in tow was worth it. Overall, you can’t beat the price, experience, or guide for your day(s) at Isle of Skye. As an accessible travel planner, I look forward to partnering with Luke and the tour company in the future on a variety of different trips with clients of all ages and abilities!

    We booked this tour via getyourguide about 24 h before.
    Our guide was Luke, who did a great job at making us acquainted with the Scottish nature, it’s people and it‘s history… he was a wonderful entertainer with an awesome taste of music (which he played in between his little speeches and informative stories)….
    It seemed as if he genuinely enjoyed being with us.
    The time management was good as we had enough time at each stop without feeling rushed.
    We were a small group of twelve people in a modern minibus (16 seats).
    At first we were a bit hesitant because of the price, but it was worth every penny!

I'm really pleased that a 24 hour before booking turned into such a great experience for you and that you really enjoyed having Luke as your driver-guide for all the reasons you've mentioned! Hopefully we will see you on another tour some day. All the best, David
