Breathtaking scenery, amazing - Yvonne made it special

We have never visited Scotland before and we opted to join a tour as it would take away the planning, the driving and the stress involved in the logistics. We were drawn to this tour as it visited the Isle of Skye had a good itinerary and we wanted to travel the steam train. We were certainly not disappointed. From the minute we arrived at the check in for the adventure, the staff were friendly and organised. We had Yvonne for our trip, and she immediately impressed me. To be frank, she made the trip... given she was running the driving, the tour guide and planning etc. She was incredibly patient, knowledgeable about the local history and with a fantastic personality that drew everyone on the tour into what become a friends day out. We would have no qualm in booking again and are already looking at tours further afield and will certainly be asking for Yvonne by name. Cannot recommend highly enough.

loved the history told by our guide Steven B, beautiful photo stops.

I would have loved to stay longer at the little stop off places. It was a good way to see many places. We know some areas we would definitely spend more time when we return to Scotland. Train ride was on Day 2. At the town of Mallaig we had a couple of hours to wander. Got some really great fish and chips at the Tea Room, and loved the art gallery on the main road right by the train station. Plan to use the toilet for free on the train or pay for toilet use at any of the stops along the way. Also, it wasn't clear in the description if meals were included, they are NOT. They do give you plenty of stops to grab a snack, but the only food provided was a really good hot breakfast at the bed and breakfast in Fort Augustus. We also had the option to find a restaurant in Fort Augustus, that would have been the only leisurely meal. If we did this again, we would bring our own snacks.

Very nice tur with a very funny guide, Brandon!

The tour was very interesting in terms of history and local facts. The nature was great. Brandon was the best guide I ever had, singing telling funny storys, joking. I very much liked that. He gave good information on ever stoppe. I had some challenges understanding all he said, as I'm Norwegian. I would however not hezitate to highly recommend our guide to other Norwegians. The Potter part of the trip was also interesting allthough I'm not the biggest fan. However my two kids are. If I should mention anything slightly negative, the information from Get your guide upfront maybe could have been better. The two youngest perhaps did expect a larger part of the tour to be on the train, and a smaller part on the bus. For me as a parent I had no problem with this, as the bus was quite comfortable.

Brian’s geographical and historical knowledge was amazing.

Brian really made the tour very successful with his vast knowledge of historical and geological facts and he brought it all together with stories of his personal experiences which were very interesting. Brian was very prompt and courteous the ultimate professional. We would do this tour again if we were guaranteed that Brian was the tour guide. The overnight accommodations were very good. Since I am older, one wish for me would be to have a bus with a toilet. That seemed to be the general consensus of most of the people on the bus.

The bus journey was very entertaining & informative thanks to Brendan

There was not enough information provided about the historical locations during the train journey. There was also no information provided about points of interest related to Harry Potter especially considering the fact that this was advertised as an important aspect of the tour.
