This was one of my favourite tours I’ve ever done! Gordon was so knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and told many funny and interesting stories along the way. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the best of the Isle of Skye in just 1 day!

We are so glad that you got in touch, so that we could tailor the tour timings to co-ordinate with the Aberdeen train, enabling you to come out on our last Ultimate Skye Tour of the season. We hope that you will be able to join us again next year for another tour, as Gordon has plenty more entertaining stories and facts to share with you! Thank you for your great company, and for the excellent review.

This was a great full-day trip to the Isle of Skye, including a few stops on the way (like meeting some highland cows!). A lot of stops, very COVID safe, and Gordon kept the group upbeat and entertained the whole time. Definitely recommend!

We visit so many world-class sights on our Ultimate Isle of Skye Tour that it can be hard to remember them all, but meeting the hairy Highland Cows is, without fail, always a memorable highlight! We have taken measures which go above and beyond, to ensure that our passengers are safe on our tours during the pandemic, so we are really glad to hear that you felt comfortable throughout the day. Thank you for the 5 star review - it is very much appreciated.

We booked the Isle of Skye day tour from Inverness and it over exceeded our expectation. With the current pandemic rules put in place, we weren't sure if our trip would be a success. Gordon, our host was fantastic and would recommend everyone to book through Wow Scotland. Social distancing rules were followed, sanitizer was available at all times, we were lucky enough to have good weather at all times. Gordon ensured we stopped at all possible location to get a view of Skye. It is magical and a must visit for all who are planning to visit Scotland. Be ready to hear a lot of local stories and a lot of music. Do carry a change of pants so that you can dip into the fairy pools, the water is cold and refreshing. You could also carry your swimsuit if you feel adventurous and want to take a dip. It's a long trek to the fairy pools so ensure your have a good pair of trekking shoes. It's time we support local business. Scotland is open for tourism and having travelled back, I would say you will be safe to travel around with Wow Scotland. Thank you Gordon for making our trip so memorable. Will visit again someday.

As the only local company offering scheduled Skye tours from Inverness, we know all of the best places to visit, and all of the best stories too! We take our guests to places we take our friends to when they visit, and our local guides are passionate about ensuring that everyone leaves with memories to last a lifetime. Consequently, we are so glad that you day was so enjoyable, and hope that you will indeed join us again sometime. For anyone reading this, we don't endorse swimming in the Fairy Pools (the water is cold, very very cold!) but, if you do wish to, we'd certainly agree that you should take swimming gear, a towel and lots of warm clothes. The hike to get there is around a 1.4 mile round trip, and you have around 90 minutes to enjoy this beautiful natural phenomenon. Thank you so much for your excellent review and recommendation to others.

The Fairy Pools, Portree and Quiraing, Kilt Rock and Girdon, our brilliant. Gordon planned our trip really well, due to the forecasts of heavy rain to ensure that we could see all of the sites. We would not hesitate to travel with Gordon again when we return and highly recommend this trip. When we arrived back at Inverness, it was pouring with rain and Gordon kindly dropped everyone off near where they were staying which demonstrates just how much he cares about his customers. He made a point if getting to know all of our names and where we were from, meaning that it felt like we were travelling with friends. This is a business that deserves to survive these challenging times. All of the necessary measures were in place to ensure our safety, with planned seating in the coach, hand sanitiser available etc.

As a small, local company we love to take our guests to see the places we take our friends to when they visit. We are so glad that you felt Gordon was a friend by the end of the tour, and that you appreciated our hotel drop off service, which is unique in Inverness. It is also lovely to hear that you think we are "a business that deserves to survive these challenging times". It has been an incredibly tough year (and our 10th birthday celebrations were a bit of a flop!) but we are looking forward to showing our wonderful guests the very best of the Highlands for many years to come! Thank you for the excellent review and we very much hope that you will tour with us again.
