I expected 8 tourists, there were just 3 of us, so it felt as if Tony took us on a private tour. It was absolutely wonderful. Tony told us a lot about the scenery, about history, taught us some Gaelic and went out of his way to make sure we all had a fantastic day. Somehow we

Thank you so much for a great review for Tony. In a small group you really get a private tour experience, at this time of year numbers are lower and we don't like to disappoint. It's lovely to have a great day when the weather is lovely and your pictures are awesome. The autumn colours in the picture of Invermoriston are beautiful. Haste ye back

If you want a boring quiet tour, don't go with Tony... :) The best tourguide there is. He knows a lot about the history of Scotland, and made it really interesting. I will never forget when bonnie prince charlie set foot on the highlands, and when and how he fled ;)We were

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Our driver was nice. The tour locations were interessting and unforgetable. However, my wife and I spent the two hours from Invernes to Glenfinnan in the front seats with the driver. It was quite uncomfortable for my wife who was in the

Thank you Paul for taking time to leave us a review. Many guests specifically ask for the front seats and seem quite happy with them, I guess it's a case of personal preference as no one has mentioned before they don't like the front seats. The guides encourage everyone to move about in the bus, usually to get the best seats up front. We are glad though you still enjoyed the sights that you saw and found them interesting and unforgettable Slaint mhath.
