      Perfect tour of Scotland
      Laura is positively amazing! Spending the day with her, felt like a day out with an old friend. She is extremely knowledgeable about Scotland and takes so much pride in showing it to others. The areas she took us were absolutely breathtaking. This tour does not disappoint! We saw everything from the rugged Highlands, to the stunning lochs, captivating standing stones, and magical castles. The landscapes are so picturesque! It's definitely a 5-star experience!

      This tour was everything I hoped for and more!
      Laura was AMAZING! Knowledgeable, funny and kind she graciously guided our group of six around the highlands and even managed to find us some cows to look at . The sights were breathtaking, our photos only captured a hint of the beauty shown to us . 10 out of 10 would do again.

      Unforgettable isle of Skye!
      This 3 days tour on Skye will remain unforgettable for ever. Well balanced between marvelous visits, spots and walks. Our amazing, kind and knowledgeable guide/driver Cal was really available and he even booked the SUN ! Boat to skye, beaches, mountains, falls, castles were all part of the tour. Lots of good mood that made this tour unique 🤩

      Me and my partner had an amazing time, we got to see a lot more than we expected. I’d advise anyone visiting Balloch or anywhere near to go on this lovely day out. Our tour guide Cal was amazing too, we felt very welcome and it was nice to hear his knowledge of our beautiful country. We also loved the ancient stories Cal told of Glencoe and Robert the Bruce.

      Unforgettable
      Fantastic day out. I’m local to Balloch and have been on trips like this many times but it was very enjoyable and enlightening to see everything from tourists eyes. The others in the bus were really friendly and from all over, we had a good laugh. Calum the Tour guide is very knowledgable and able to anticipate what people like to do. He’s so friendly and took us to see some amazing views. The weather was great snow rain wind and cold. Loved it 😃

      A look into Scotland
      Very nice experience, our guide Owen was so good at what he was doing. Great storyteller and funny too. The weather was rainy but we did the beat out of it. A really good introduction to the beauties of Scotland. The tour was organized by Scotland’s Wild, totally recommend them.

      A true Scottish experience with breathtaking views
      Our tour guide Cal gave us an amazing experience going through the highlands by adapting to the weather and giving us wonderful views while not changing the itinerary too much. He was very courteous of how the group was doing and gave us so many recommendations during our pit stops in certain towns. Some of my favorite highlights were Dunadd Fort and the backstory behind its importance (including some folklore) and the Luss pier (which we were lucky to see as its normally included during the winter months I think). It was a 10 hour trip, but Cal helped pass the time with funny stories, Scottish history, and teaching us some Scottish slang. I definitely felt like I experienced the full Scottish experience with this tour and I would highly recommend this one among the other highland tour options.

      Stunning sights and sites!
      Laura took us on an amazing trip around Loch Lomond and the Trossarchs! We saw some great sights and heard some amazing stories about Scottish folklore and history. Laura’s knowledge on the area was very impressive and her passion for the subject really brought it to life. Laura was great at adapting the tour based on the weather as well! Would highly recommend!

      Simply spectacular
      . We have done the tour of Loch Ness, the Highlands and Glencore with the guide and driver Chris. They have exceeded our expectations. Feature Chris. Great person and professional. Knowledgeable about all the history that he transmits with passion throughout the journey. Unlike other tours, they care about quality time in terms of visits and stops so that you can attend to your needs. Intense and complete trip that gives you a great perspective of a large part of the region. Thank you Chris, from the bottom of my heart.

      Great tour by great people !! We had a wonderful day, full of Scottish history, culture and accent ! Landscape, castle and whisky are great pillars for discovering Scotland and that’s what this tour provides. Guides (Cal & Laura) are super welcoming and full of knowledge (and great drivers). We would do it again!

    This was an amazing tour unlike any other. We stopped at the standing stones, Inverarary castle, Kilchurn castle and original Kingdom of Scotland. The small group tour allowed for lots of discussion with our guide Calum who loves Scottish history and was super knowledgeable. He was the sweetest guide always looking after everyone. Couldn’t have asked for a better, more unique Scottish experience. Highly recommend!!

    The tour was beyond my expectations! Laura was our guide and she is what made it spectacular! She was full of information and engaging to the entire wonderful group of us. The stops were timed perfectly and gave the right amount of time to explore and see everything. Honestly, I will be booking a private tour with Laura anytime I come back to Scotland. The tour company is the only one I will recommend moving forward. Laura is a priceless gem and made the day unforgettable.

    First off, Laura was the most incredible, nicest, funniest, BEST tour guide in the entire world…no, atmosphere!!! Our tour was maybe 10+ hours but it felt like 1 hour it was so much fun. We saw some incredible sights, and she was so informative and fun and willing to take your photos and tell stories and share so much about Scotland. I almost cried when I had to leave the tour. I will miss this trip, and I will never forget it. We had an amazing group and Laura made it so so special. Honestly she deserves if not TOUR GUIDE OF THE YEAR, she should also get a Nobel Peace prize solely for existing. She will always hold a place in my heart, and so will Scotland.
