My wife and I spent an excellent day being driven around by Ken to the Balmoral and Glamis castles. He was prompt and efficient, and also kept the conversation running the entire day, displaying a terrific knowledge of the area. Highly recommended.

Your tours sound exactly like what we would want but I have one concern. Because of a medical problem I cannot ride in some cars. I do fine in Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Toyota but I have never ridden in a Land Rover. What bothers me is the vibration of the engine and a really bumpy ride. Is a Land Rover like a Jeep? Do you have any other vehicles that you could us? There would only be my husband and I on this trip and we are thinking about the 4 day tour of the Highlands and Isle of Skye. Thank you, Effie Bradley
