The tour was wonderful and this was not only because the Highlands are a unique and magical place but also because of the guide, Leo, who as a local, was able to provide a very detailed explanation of the different places we've visited and passed by and all the fun historical details that made the trip between the different destinations seem less monotonous. We're very happy to have choosen as our company.

I'll start with the fair warnings. The tour makes for a very long day. Be sure to bring snacks, and the bathroom breaks are a bit far apart, so plan accordingly. Aside from that, it's great fun. Scotland is a beautiful country that looks unique to any other and this is a great way to see a huge part of it. You can't come to this wonderful country and not take the time to see all it's beautiful country side and of course look for Nessie on one of the most famous lakes in the world. Our guide Leo was very knowledgeable and a really great speaker. He does a great job at keeping it fun and entertaining through the whole trip.
