My friend and I had the greatest time on this tour. It was looooong, but very rewarding and exciting seeing the natural beauty. Our highlight was definitly our guide, His wonderful Scottish accent and all the historic tales from far gone times and counting how many times he said "guys" and some good jokes. We saw some Hairy Coos and the Stop in Glen Coe was breath taking beautiful. I highly recommend this trip. There were a few teenagers and pensioners asleep, so maybe leave them at home ;)

We had a fantastic time on this tour. It is long as it covers considerable distance, and the stops with the exception of Loch Ness are shorter than you'd like. That said, our driver/tour guide Jamie was thoroughly entertaining with his historical accounts and his accompanied playlist of Scottish music and artists of Scottish descent. As well, we definitely recommend doing the boat tour in Loch Ness that was offered on the bus as you won't see much of the Loch from shore. We loved the Highlands and this tour gives a great overview of the area. And the pickup from the hotel was very convenient.

Great day out. Long trek but plenty of stops along the way to take photos, stretch the legs and get something to eat, drink or pick up souvenirs. Driver (Brendan in our case) was extremely knowledgeable and helpful....as well as great craic
