“Great way for a days tour off of a ship”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Discover Scotland Tours
Keith, our excellent drive/tour guide, picked us up at Greenock, where my ship docked.
We stopped at Loch Lomond for a few photos. We had about 45 minutes in a cute village called Luss. I walked over the Luss Church. The scenery behind it is beautiful. I tried to get into the church but couldn’t and yet others on the van did. So I missed seeing inside. The cottages here in the village are very nice. Gardens are beautiful.
Keith drove along the gorgeous Scottish countryside passing by places such as Buchanan Castle and Buchanan Castle & Golf Course. We drove by neat villages such as Aberfoyle.
We met Hamish "the hairy coo". Few steps away is a cafeteria for a bite to eat before heading back out on the road enjoying the countryside passing by places such as Doune Castle, where Monty Python and the Holy Grail was filmed.
Our last stop was Stirling Castle. If you wanted to go in the cost was 13.00 GBP. Keith gave us two hours here. For me it was a bit too long, for others not long enough.
Before dropping us back to the ship, Keith gave us a quick tour of Glasgow.

“Loch Ness, Haunting Glencoe & Highlands Tour”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

I took the Loch Ness, Haunting Glencoe & Highlands Tour on May 4, 2012. Everything was very enjoyable, David our driver/tour guide was 100% amazing. He made everyone feel so comfortable right from the beginning. I've already recommended this tour company to friends in Canada. I'll be back in Scotland next May, will be booking a Oban tour with these guys. Two thumbs up all the way. Cheers from Canada Sincerely Glenn R.

“Loch Lomond, the Trossachs and Sterling Castle”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

My wife and I are still talking about our experience on this tour. Keith was our guide and he was very knowledgable about the history of Scotland, we throughly enjoyed colorful his commentary. The Trossachs were wonderful, in retrospect we would have liked spending more time there than in Sterling Castle which was a bit of a disappointment. We only had 2 days in Scotland and this was a great way to spend one of them. The price was also reasonable at about 1/3 what we paid for a similar tour in England.
