From Edinburgh: 3-Day Isle of Skye and The Highlands Tour
- Duration: 3 days
We saw a lot in only three days. Yes, there is a lot of bus riding, but I'm not sure what those complaining were expecting. It was during COVID restrictions, and the company was clear about expectations and provided a safe environment on the bus. Now, the bus was generally good. The minibus that had enough space and reclining seats. But on day two the bus was making so much noise it was rather annoying, and on the third day, it was borderline unbearable. Your guide was John, and he's a guide you'll hate loving. He's good with history as I was fact checking him. He was funny, accommodating and was going out of his way to grant some requests.
Our trip was actioned packed, but didn’t feel rushed at all. Scott our tour guide was funny and informative and made us feel cared for and welcomed. He told us stories and fun facts about all the sites. We needed the tour feeling like a big group of friends. I’m leaving Scotland wanting more. I was so inspired by this trip I’ll be looking to book the 5 day tour next year! I 100% recommend the hairy coo tours!
The Highlands are a beautiful area. The trip ran like a well oiled machine, everything was on time and we were never made to wait. I would have liked to have had more time at the outdoor area by the Enchanted River than spending so much time in the city of Portree, but I'm just not a shopper. The Eileen Donan Castle was wonderful! Our guide, Richard, was entertaining and informative, just perfect.
Had a wonderful experience exploring the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye, would definitely like to come back again sometime. Our driver-cum-guide Stephen was amazing both with his witty jokes and his stories about Scottish history. Memories that would last forever!
I just love this tour! It was amazing three days, with many wonderful stories and places... thanks to our dear guide/driver (Brian Smith), I’m even more in love with Scotland! It's a country that took my breath away and being here was a dream come true!
