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 great tour with a lot of variety and perfect timing to try and get as much done as possible in a day while on a cruise stop. Andrew was our guide and very knowledgeable, funny and interesting. He was a wonderful story teller and kept us intrigued in-between stops. He managed the group nicely. It was a nice sized group and he kept everyone on track. the bus was very nice as well. We stopped at Cawdor castle. The gardens around might be more amazing then the castle! We stopped at Loch Ness where he had some Glenlivet for us! We went to Clava Cairns. Which has both ancient history and Outlander appeal. Culloden Battlefield, which if you stay with Andrew he will give you information that adds so much to the visit. A special visit to Highland Cows (my wife's favorite) and even some free time in Inverness to shop!
Amazing day that I would have no problem in highly recommending to anyone.

As our guests arriving on cruise ships only have around eight hours to explore the Scottish Highlands, our aim is to show you as much as we can, whilst ensuring that you are not rushed, so excellent time management is crucial. By using smaller mini-coaches, which enable us to take the roads less travelled, this also ensures that the time spent driving between key sights is well utilised, and gives our wonderful driver guides the opportunity to enthrall you with their stories. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed all of the sights so much, and that Andrew even managed to fit in some bonus stops too (Highland cows are always a hit!) Thank you so much for the excellent review and recommendation, it is very much appreciated.

I loved my tour of the Isle of Skye. Andrew was just the best. I found him to be a very competent driver and was so obliging. His knowledge of Skye was first class and I loved listening to his interesting stories. He even found me some Highland Coos and we got to stop and take photos. Enjoy your break Andrew you deserve it.

Had such a great time on this trip! My friend and I knew we were in good hands when our guide, Andrew, told us he was Welsh and a former undertaker. He was a fabulous story teller, even bringing a few tears to my friend’s eyes with his end of the day trilogy in four parts. We took his advice when we got to Portree and walked up to the apothecary’s tower on the mound and we were so glad we did. Fantastic view! We picked this tour because we wanted to visit the fairy pools and it was well worth missing a tour of a castle for. Highly recommend.
Diolch yn fawr iawn, Andrew!

Andrew's immense knowledge, storytelling abilities and love of his adopted homeland are second to none, and we are so glad to hear that you had such a great day with him from the get-go. Andrew, and our other guides, truly are the best in the business. We pride ourselves in having the most comprehensive tour itinerary, which very much focuses on the world-class scenery that the Isle of Skye is famous for. We certainly concur that being able to experience the top sights in the north of the island, as well as the Fairy Pools and Portree, makes the absolute most of your time. Thank you so much for the excellent review and recommendation, it is very much appreciated.

An amazing tour with Andrew to the Isle of Skye from Inverness. Andrew was so much fun. He was full of Knowledge of the area, history and cute tidbits about various places we saw. Even in the rain and wind the whole trip was magical. The landscape, the Lough, the highland cows, the water falls, the tiny towns it was just breathtaking and mystical in the rain and fog. I would take this trip again the next time I am in the area. WOW had the best itinerary and includes the fairy pools , and Andrew was the best tour guide we could have possibly asked for. Wonderful trip and I hope to be back in the very near future and take another tour with Andrew as our Guidel

Andrew is a fantastic asset to our small team and his skills, combined with the (in our opinion!) best itinerary of any day tour certainly turn a day on this wonderful island from good.... to WOW! Good on you for embracing the Scottish weather and thank you so much for your enthusiastic review. We very much hope to welcome you on another tour in the future - Andrew will never run out of stories for you ;-)

Scotland was a lovely country, would go back in a heartbeat! The country is beautiful with warm and friendly people and a nice balance between rural and city life. If I had the opportunity to buy a second home, it would be in Scotland!

Despite rain coming and going through the day, this tour feom Inverness to Skye was amazing! This was a 12 hour tour, so a long day, but our guide, Andrew, timed everything well, and kept us entertained even on long stretches. He has a great sense of humour and is a born storyteller! We got to see it all - the Coos, Loch Ness, the waterfall, the fairy pools, and so much more. I would recommend this tour to anyone! My tip would be to pack a lunch. We ordered from the lunch option on the bus, and the food was absolutely delicious, but if I had it to do over I would have packed a picnic and saved the $ for a wee dram after.

Our Ultimate Isle of Skye Tour has the most comprehensive itinerary of any Skye day tour, and it is great to hear that you appreciated the variety and number of places you experienced on this tour. A key part of our ethos is to support local businesses on all of our tours. Consequently, we are delighted to work with the wonderful Isle of Skye Bakery, who make tasty lunches, specifically for WOW guests, fresh every day. Prices vary from around £4 for a filled (and very filling!) bread to £8.50 for a filled bread and sweet treat selection. The lunches offer great value, but you are of course welcome to bring your own lunch and refreshments with you. Thank you for the lovely review and we are really happy that our tour was the best you did in Scotland.

Highly recommend this tour! Andrew turned what was a sad solo day for me (as my Dad couldn’t make the tour) into an amazing trip. He entertained, educated, and enlightened us all with Scottish history, sites, and stories. I would co-captain for him again anytime!
