Loch Ness, Highlands & Whisky Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
- Duration: 12.5 hours
Nik was a great tour guide with all his stories and friendly approach. There were only 3 people on the tour including ourselves which added to a more personal feeling. The only thing for us was, we felt we didn’t have enough time visiting the Kelpies. 30 minutes was the allocation, 45 minutes would have been better. Times for exploring the other locations was fine. All in all a very enjoyable day
Our tour guide, Stuart, was fab. Completely made the trip. However, a lot of the trip is spent driving. Only 1 hour spent at Loch Lomond, 1 hour for lunch, 1.5 hours at Stirling Castle and a quick stop at the Kelpies and possibly a highland cow. In future I would prefer to rent a car, as you can get to each place quicker and stop for as long as you want in each location.
We had a really great time on our tour with Alan B. He was super knowledgeable, interesting to listen to and even occasionally sang us a tune or two to help reflect the beauty of all Scotland has to offer and it's connection to music :) The trip was safe, enjoyable, comfortable and overall a great day out from Edinburgh. Highly recommend it.
Our guide Dom was funny and shared with us a lot of interesting facts, stories and legends which were also accompanied with relevant Scottish songs which was nice. I liked the fact that we had long stops however the time passed so quick that even seemingly long stops were not enough, that was the only drawback of the trip.
Thank you to Michael, our tour guide! he made this tour a great experience. He showed us a secret view point that we never would've found on our own, told us about the history of Scotland, answered any questions well, and gave us a great time.
