A great tour - actually there is nothing wrong with it, except that hardly any buffer is taken into account. Due to delays from other participants, we were able to spend extremely little time in some places. The guide seemed very stressed to get everything on time. The rest was perfect!

James was our tour guide and driver. He was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and geography of Scotland. The tour took us to two distilleries and at least 5 or 6 other stops for either photo ops or lunch or just be able to walk around. It was the best tour we had out of the 5 tours we took while we were in Scotland. Even if you don't drink whisky, (which I don't), it was a great tour.

We had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend to other visitors. We also want to say that our tour leader Eric was amazing, he truly made the trip memorable. Eric was engaging, humorous, and shared personal stories that made the experience interesting and memorable. We really appreciated an unscheduled stop in Fortingall to see the Kirk and 5000 yr old yew tree. Please pass along our thanks to Eric and his boss.
