Our tour guide Robert (Rob) had a lot of great stories to tell; very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. He made sure there were regular stops on the way and there is plenty of time to take a boat tour on Loch Lomond. The Trossach National Park is a sight

This was the last tour of my visit, and it was a good note to end on. A bit more laid back to the other trips i'd done, with maybe less stops but more time to enjoy them, such as the ride along Loch Lomond. It was an overcast day and though it was chilly, the view was still

Dear tinamom101, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your tour, it is very much appreciated. We're pleased to hear that you found the Shore Excursion tour enjoyable with Eric as your driver-guide. I am glad you enjoyed all of his stories, his organisation and of course his extensive knowledge of Scotland. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to Eric, I am sure he will appreciate it. We are so pleased you enjoyed it and made the most of your time by looking into family clan history. It's good to hear Eric helped with this and also that your father-in-law loved it so much! We of course agree that everyone should see a Highland Coo in their life - they are very special. If you'd like to explore more of Scotland in the future, please don't hesitate to get in contact and our Reservations Team would be more than happy to help you choose a tour that you'd be interested in with less people! Best Wishes, Shea

Dear Sparr0w00, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your tour, it is very much appreciated. We're pleased to hear that you found your tour enjoyable with Robert as your driver-guide. I am glad to hear the tour ran so smoothly with his guidance and knowledge, and that he helped to purchase the tickets for you.

We are so pleased you enjoyed Stirling Castle and that your son was also quite happily amused on the coach. Additionally, I am so pleased we were able to return your phone to you, there is nothing worst than losing your belongings whilst on holiday. Thank you for saying!

Hi 842maliad Thank you for your kind review of Laura's tour! It's great to hear that you felt the stops were well placed and you had a lovely time on tour. The introduction of Edradour was a bonus and if you ever want to visit the distillery please get in touch and we can organise a private tour for you. Kind Regards Martin
