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.

    Thank you Rod for making this an amazing experience. Had a fabulous 3 days as a non- driver this was the best way to see so many amazing places and met some lovely people from all parts of the world. The bus was clean and comfortable. Plenty stops to take photos, pick up snacks and loo breaks.Rod our driver was fantastic, funny, made sure everyone was happy.Kept us all going with historical stories and interesting facts. When stopping for lunch made sure we knew where to go for eating. Most of the time everyone arrived back at bus on time if not you had to sing a song.

    Stevie and Sean went above and beyond to make the best day trip ever. Stevie added extra stops to accommodate the group interests ( the highland caws and forth bridge).

    Wow had a fantastic day!!
    Our guide was Noah. He was so knowledgable and made the day extra special. He went out of his way to ensure we had the best ever experience. We have learnt so much from all the amazing stories over the years.
    This was a birthday treat for my Mum whose family originated from Perth - she loved every minute of it.
    We would highly recommend it to anyone.

    The tour was fantastic, we set off from Glasgow, our tour operator David was very knowledgeable and was very entertaining, he made the tour even more fantastic, thank you David!!!
    It was a long day with plenty to do and we stopped at plenty of places for pictures and refreshments etc. We even had the option to book Loch Ness boat cruise ticket on the bus, so we were guaranteed seats before we got there. The ticket prices were the same as well, so it was 100% worth it.
    We learnt a lot about the history of Scotland and lots of interesting trivia, even a Scottish song or two!
    Even though there was the possibility that we weren’t able to complete the desired route due to weather, David gave us plenty of other options just in case. Luckily, the roads were good enough to travel on, so no need for alternative routes.
    There is no better way to explore the highlands for this price, I would highly recommend!

    This tour was more than I expected. Paul our guide for the day explained everything and gave us detailed information on the history and locations.
    Paul was very helpful, knowledgeable and humorous, even obliging in taking photos for us.
    Truly recommend this tour

    Paul Santa was THE BEST guide we could have had. For the money, we got amazing views, awesome banter and history, and a guide who cared about us and what we got to see. Completely worth the day trip around the West Highlands.

    We had a wonderful day with our guide Laura, from Scotland's Wild.
    The day trip started off by travelling to Stirling Castle, then on to Loch Lomond - with a short hike up the hill, to get a great view of the lake and the Scottish Highlands and topped it off with a taste of a fine local whisky.
    And then to finish off, we had a tour through the Glengoyne Distillery, another whisky tasting there and an opportunity to buy some of their fine produce.
    It was a day we will remember for a long time, with so many great places to see and a lot of fun and laughs a long the way!

    Scott took us out to see the central Highlands along with castles, quaint villages, and various unique sites we wouldn’t have known to look for. While the package came with an itinerary Scott was able to tailor it to the destinations that were most interesting to us and even suggest landmarks that would better meet our criteria (within reason, I expect we couldn’t significantly deviate from the route). Having the flexibility to make adjustments and a dedicated guide really set this experience apart from traditional large group bus tours that we’ve done in the past.

    Then there comes value for the money. We got to see more locations than a group tour, we didn’t have to rent a car, had more flexibility in the agenda, much more comfortable riding accommodation (important when driving multiple hours), and we had our own dedicated guide with extensive knowledge. Hard to beat that value.

    Last, but not least, Scott was a fantastic tour guide. He filled the air with historical knowledge/stories, connected locations of the tour to pop culture (movies, shows, music), and was all around an entertaining guide. It isn’t easy keeping people engaged for 8hrs but Scott was able to do just that with enthusiasm and knowledge.

    Overall, great experience and would do it again.
