    It was a great trip and made everything so much easier for us. The driver/tour guide was very informative. It was just my cousin and I on our trip and they didn’t cancel our reservation thankfully! If they did, we would not have had time to go see any of the wonderful views!

    Wendy took care of us really well, and ensured we had enough time to see all that we could in the short amount of daylight. Picnic lunch that was provided - that we had at the Fairy Glen was delicious and also, breathtaking and since it was Christmas Day, we didn't have to worry

    Great trip! Our tour guide Derrick was well versed in Scottish history. He was also friendly and built commarderie on our tour. I highly recommend Iona tours

    This tour has great itinerary. It was spoiled by the fact that the guide, who was personable and polite, did not have very good English or historical info. If you book, before you do, check who is to be your guide. It spoiled what should have been a very good day.
