Our guide, Caron, was great! She met us on time, at the meeting point and was easy to spot. She was knowledgeable about the city, enthusiastic in her delivery and thoughtful eg in relation to any Covid concerns we might have. It was great to be taken to see the highlights of the city. We love the architecture, the murals and the necropolis was particularly fascinating - like something from a film set!

We were traveling with my adult brother who is on the autism spectrum And everybody especially our tour guide Alastair was very patient and wonderful with him. We had a three week trip in the UK and those three days in the Highlands with the wonder photo stops and interacting among the passengers was our favorite. My brother talked about this portion of the trip the most and we heard Alastair's name a lot as he reaped our trip to Friends and Family. Pictures do not do the highlands justice. We extended our trip just for this excursion and very thankful we did. It was Amazing!!

What a super tour! Our guide/driver Alan was fantastic, a great mix of information and humour, with music in the coach too! A great way to see the local scenery and Loch Lomond and sample some excellent whisky!
Purely amazing and worth the money, trip felt bespoke and driver felt like more of a friend than a stranger.
