* A traveler said: "Nick our driver & tour guide was top notch amazing, we loved him. He was cheerful, funny, professional and engaging. Nick was very knowledgeable and shared many stories about Scotland with us along with beautiful Scottish music - which we really enjoyed. We stopped for lunch at Loch Lomond at the Oak Tree Inn, the food and service were amazing. The Glengoyne Distillery was beautiful and the staff were professional, it was a nice sit down tasting with lots of interesting information and of course a detailed tour of the distillery. Deanston was a quick stand up tasting that felt rushed, but we are living in unprecedented times with COVID. Driving through the countryside was beautiful and Nick the driver makes plenty of restroom stops and is an excellent driver, the air conditioned bus was perfect for a warm summers day. This is a great trip and we would take it again, well done Viator!!"
