Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a wonderful private day tour! Jim offered a great experience that on the fly had to adjust our tour due to gale force winds and a cancellation of our cruise on Loch Ness. It could have been a disappointment, but our tour adjustment was wonderful. We ended up going to Glenfinnan Viaduct (of Harry Potter fame) and it was beautiful as well as the surrounding scenery. We are hopeful to return to Scotland and would love to book another private with Jim and his tour company. My wife and I highly recommend utilizing Glentarra Scottish Tours!!

Our day long guided tour was made so wonderful by Jim! A beautifully laid out tour of the Highlands, a fabulous lunch to taste Scottish foods and a cruise on Loch Ness! Jim is a knowledgeable, personable guide and we felt very fortunate to have spent 12 hours in his company. Thank you for making our bucket list trip so memorable.

Jim was an amazing tour guide. We wanted to visit locations that might bring more insight into Robertson ancestors. Jim did a lot of research and planned a great three day tour. We were scheduled to take the Jacobite train but that part was cancelled due to safety issues. Jim was able to quickly alter the plan and provided us with additional tour locations to take the place of our cancelled train ride. We would recommend Glentarra Scottish Tours with no reservations!

Jim was an excellent tour guide. My husband and I were not as familiar with what to do in the Highlands and which whisky tours would be best to visit while in Scotland. Jim tailored a two-day itinerary that was great for us. Jim was in constant communication with us prior to our trip and once we arrived. He was prompt, helpful, and informative and made great suggestions. We were glad when he joined us for a walk through the the grounds of a castle in the Highlands as he felt more like a friend on the trip. If we return to Scotland, we will reach out to Jim. We highly recommend Jim!

The whole experience from our pick up to our drop off at night was perfect. Jim is a very knowledgable guide without sounding like a teacher. The drive in his very nice Mercedes was smooth and very comfortable. He taylored the tour fit our wishes and also gave us pointers as to what makes sense and can be done in a day.
I would book him again in a heartbeat.

Jim took us on a day tour from Edinburgh to the Highlands. He helped us plan our itinerary and ensured the timing so that we could get to the Glenfinnan Viaduct in time to see the train crossing. Jim was professional all the way through and had a true desire to make sure we saw what was most important to us. As well, he was knowledgeable, personable and made our trip enjoyable. I would highly recommend using Jim to book a tour/trip.

Jim was a wonderful tour guide. He completely customized our tour based upon what we wanted to see and, on the fly, would change things up during the day as we mentioned other things we were interested in. We had a great mix of beautiful country, castles, historical sites, along with a whiskey distillery visit. Jim was very knowledgeable about Scotland in general and was super friendly and easy to get along with/talk to. I would recommend Jim to anyone; he made sure he gave us an amazing experience. Hope to book Jim on another tour when I get back to Scotland!
