The tour was truly a perfect adventure! It is well-thought and organized; the van is comfortable and super clean, physical distancing is enforced and there are enough breaks along the way with a stunning view as well! Our guide was Jenny and if you happen to get her - she is amazing! Real storyteller, perfect driver and super mindful toward her passengers! All in all - it's worth it!

I was only in Scotland for a couple of days, so I took this tour to see some of the sights outside of Glasgow. Grant was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. I was in awe of Scotland's rugged beauty.
