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.

Chris Ryan, (Out and About Tours) was our guide in the Outer Hebrides. He guided us for two consecutive days on 'Harris and Lewis'. Chris, obviously, possesses a vast amount of knowledge about the islands, doubtless aided by the fact that he has been a 'local' for nearly 30 years and, additionally, that his wife was born and raised on the island. Not only does he cover the island's geography & history in great detail but the flora & fauna as well. Very importantly, he is a friendly chap, well able to convey the message clearly and succinctly.
We would happily recommend that you make use of his services, when you next visit the Outer Hebrides.

We had had a particularly bad 24 hours trying to get from Skye to the Hebrides, but on arrival in Stornoway our small group were met by Chris and it was just wonderful to listen to someone who talked so well and gave us such interesting information. He was so easy to listen to and so informative.

An entertaining and fascinating tour of Lewis, focusing on the area closest to our cottage and providing tips on where to walk and visit during our stay. We particularly enjoyed the social history and nature info and spotting.

The trip of a lifetime to see ancient lands, standing stones, unusual landscapes along with a beautiful town on the water with all the amenities. Our house was perfect, has everything we needed and close to town. The people were welcoming and kind to us yanks. An unforgettable trip. Highly recommend.

4 of us went on a day tour of Lewis. We did it on a Sunday, which worked perfectly as although not much is open on a Sunday it was great to have a personal guide to take us around and tell us about the island!
It was a brilliant way to see the place as we found out information we just wouldn't have got any other way and every part of the day was intriguing. Chris was and excellent. He had a real passion for the island, ran a brilliant tour and was great company. He also gave us great tips for the rest of our stay. I'd highly recommend!

I had long hoped to travel to the Outer Hebrides to learn more about the area, particularly regarding ancient structures and monuments, and, finally, I had an opportunity to see them this April! Chris Ryan of Out and About Tours is the most knowledgeable guide in the area and spent much time to educate us in depth about the treasures of this area. I highly, highly recommend him to anyone who is considering traveling to the Outer Hebrides.

My Aunt and I were lucky enough to spend two days with Chris as he introduced us to the Isles of Lewis and Harris. Chris' knowledge and experience greatly enriched our visit! He is a gem of a tour guide (and person) and we found the tour well worth every penny.
