“Fantastic Day Trip”

Alex picked us up from the ferry from Islay and took us on a tour of Jura. Alex was able to spot otters and deer and birds that we would never have noticed. His knowledge of the history of the island is excellent and really bought the place to life with his commentary. He showed us the historical photos exhibit of life on Jura in the last century as well as the local graveyeard which has some excellent gravestone quotes. Always friendly and informative, his bus is spacious and comfortable. Great value for money and I would definitely reccomend his tour (either half day or full day) if you are planning on visiting Jura. We did the half day trip but next time I will defintiely go for the full day.

Alex will drive you around Jura and give a constant commentary on the wildlife, flora, geology and culture of the island.He has lived in this small community-some 200 souls- for almost 30 years having married a Jura girl.We were in a party of 16, and had an all-day trip which was quite marvellous and were so impressed not only by his knowledge,but his passionate love of life on Jura.We stopped several times to explore at greater detail sites of particular interest, and also at an excellent bistro cafe for lunch.

Alex was a fantastic source of information about the island and is clearly passionate about it. He took us to several places of interest where we got out and explored the area. Having reached Jura by the excellent new passenger ferry from Tayvallich, so having no transport of our own, it was a great opportunity to sit on Alex's luxury minibus and get whisked off to places which would have been unattainable on foot. He even reads a poem about the Clearances while standing on the beach where islanders were forced to flee from! We did the short tour this time but would definitely go back for the longer one in future.

Thank Anne B
