I went on this tour due to the good reviews on tripadvisor and since it is based on the principal by pay what you want. Normally, I am not the person who goes on tours because I like to plan and explore by myself.
Because it was a tour on the tip base, I went on it and during the tour, our guide and owner Daniel was not hinting or begging for any money. He was a great guide with good stories about the Scotland and the places we visited. Although, I was getting the feeling that it was a bit like a script he was telling since I heard some of the comments mentioned on Tripadvisor. But what else do you want when you have done this tour 500 times before (what makes you an expert of the highlands). He told his stories with humor and talked loud and clear. The perfect guide!
The tour it self was a pretty good way to visit the highlands. It shows some beautiful spots in the park near the lakes and offcourse, the hairy coo's. We also visited some village's where we have got some perfect tips from Daniel. He told in Callander that the best fish and chips could be eaten at Mhor, and his tip paid off: Excellent! We also saw the Forth bridge, Wallis monument in Stirling and the village of Aberfoye. Unfortunately, we could not visit Stirling castle due to the time and the Doune castle due to the filming of a big tv serie.
After all, I will definitely recommend the Hairy Coo free tour. The guide is good and works hard for his money. Therefore he realy tries to make your day a perfect day and I believe in his concept of the pay want you want principal.
