First, if you are contemplating booking a tour with “Scottish Guided Tours”, we highly recommend you contact them now!! Spectacular!!
We were not sure how to tackle our planned travels to the Isle of Skye and so we just googled “3 day tour / Isle of Skye” and SGT (Scottish Guided Tours) was the first listed. Thank goodness for us.
We were a group of 2 couples, good friends on a 3 day tour. We were all new to this type of experience. Niall was waiting in our Hotel lobby as we exit the elevator and we 4 are immediately aware that we are in for a real treat! He is in full Scottish traditional attire and was warmly welcoming and we must say looked fabulous!
We were so comfortable in our tour van and as we made our way to the main highways we just happened to ask how we could get to the “Kelpies” when we returned to Edinburgh and… before we knew it we were there!! That was the awesome beginning to our 3 days.
Niall’s knowledge and respect of and for Scottish heritage, history, languages, traditions, customs and lifestyle was abundant. We could listen to Niall talk all day and hope to again in the future.
He did everything within his grasp to answer our questions, fulfill our requests and make sure we knew that this 3 day tour was for us and that he wanted to fulfill as many of our curiosities as possible.
We truly feel our 3 full days traveling to The Isle of Skye, on the Isle of Skye and our return to Edinburgh were all well organized, formed to our wants as clients, caring about our needs, had a “no fuss” attitude when making last minute changes due to weather or circumstances out of our control.
We did not confirm a dinner reservation for our first night. He quickly fixed our mistake and found us a restaurant that would take us 4 in at last minute. As we had already had a lovely lunch earlier, the meal we enjoyed that evening was wonderful and just an example of all the meals we would partake in for the 3 days. We ordered Sticky Toffee Pudding whenever possible and highly recommend that!!
Our tour unfolded before us and Niall made it seem effortless.
Again, we could not recommend SGT a higher recommendation.
BOOK WITH SCOTTISH GUIDED TOURS NOW!!!
To sum up our fabulous experience, as we said our good byes to Niall and turned to enter our hotel, Pam turned to me and said “we aren’t going to see Niall in the morning, are we?” And I answered “no” as we put our arms around each other and passed thru the door. Like the end of a movie!!!!
Quite frankly Niall, we miss you,
Kelly & Pam, Bruce & Dy
