Easily the best day of my life, thank you Luke!!

This tour was amazing from start to finish. I am so thankful this tour was recommended to me and my husband because it has been the most breathtaking part of our trip. I feel so lucky especially that Luke was our tour guide. You can clearly tell how passionate he is about Scotland and sharing his knowledge with others. He was so incredibly kind, funny, and all around AWESOME! He paid attention to the details, he had an awesome music playlist- he played music to match the different parts of the tour. He shared stories and bits of Trivia, he was awesome to chat with and get to know. Luke, you are an incredible human, and my husband and I are so grateful to have met you! Every stop of the tour was gorgeous and we all had plenty of time to take pictures, learn about the stop, and take in the fresh air.

Amazing trip! Lots of things to see. Luke was an excellent guide that gave us a lot of information and explanations, historical facts and tips. The perfect plan if you want to visit the Highlands with no car and not a lot of time.

The trip as 12 hours so I was concerned that it may be a bit boring. I was wrong, the trip is broken up well and has several scenic and historic stops along the way. Sligachan Hotel area was incredible mountain and stream scenery.

VERY LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION
Nathalie_G
, Jul 2022
Unfortunately, I cannot thank you for your tour, because it was canceled at 7:47 yesterday morning, while we were waiting for your bus with my two children: a total desolation for the whole family!!! We also tried to reach you at that time without success and no one was present to assume these two bus cancellations to the Skye Highlands from Inverness in front of all the people delivered to this very disapointed situation.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hi Nathalie, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are very sorry that we had to cancel your tour at such short notice. Unfortunately that morning we came across some operational issues meaning it would not have been safe to run our coaches to Skye. The safety of our passengers is our number one priority and we wouldn't want to put anyone in danger. We are a small company with a limited number of coaches and events like this are very disappointing to us. Again, please accept our sincerest apologies. Kind regards, Lisa

This tour was such a great way to see some of the most picturesque locations in Skye. We got to see so many cool locations and learn the history and folklore surrounding these places. Our driver was very cautious on some of the windy roads. 10/10 would recommend to others!

Wow. What a wonderful trip. Can't explain in words about the panoramic view. Really I wanted to stay there itself. Our tour guide Marita is knowledge and her driving skills is awesome. If I get one more chance I would love to travel to isle of Skye with timberbush travel.

This was an absolutely amazing tour! The views were breathtaking and the storytelling along the trip were wonderful. I highly recommend wearing sturdy shoes because the castle is a bit of a rocky hike up but sit back enjoy the music and stories and enjoy Scotland.

Hi there, thank you for your review. The views on the Isle of Skye tour are absolutely unreal so I'm really pleased that you enjoyed them so much. It's always a good idea to wear a wee sensible shoe as some of the tracks are a wee bit rocky, but at least its nothing too difficult. All the best, David

I was very pleased with this tour. The guides are exceptional. They deliver their mastery of knowledge with a passion that demonstrates their love for the area, and their desire to share this love. Yes, its a long tour, but it’s designed in such a way that it is unbelievable how quickly goes the day. The small bus is comfortable, and the sights are breathtaking.

This tour is recommended. It covers all the places you need to see in Isle of Skye. (Personally, it is impossible to do all these in one day if you are on your own). The guide is very well planned and knowledgable. Minor critic is the bus. It is pretty small and a little bit uncomfortable for the long ride. But it's understandable that the bus cannot be big because of the narrow road up and down hill. Overall, it is a great tour!

Hi there, thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your time on Skye with us and that your guide was really knowledgeable.

All the best, David

We had such a great time with Luke and Vlad leading our tour. Isle of Skye was more beautiful that I had imagined. It was a perfect pace and Luke was a great guide, giving the perfect amount of information and insider tips without being overwhelming. We got so many great pictures thanks to Luke’s tips as well. It was well worth every penny and I’d recommend it to anyone.

Hi there, thank you for your review! Skye is so beautiful, a lot of the time the pictures don't do it justice and you have to get out there and see it.

Make sure and share your pictures with us, we'd love to see them, and hopefully we will see you again some day soon! All the best, David

Scotlands best experience.

Wow what an amazing day. Luke and Vlad were brilliant guides. Luke was the star of the show and brought humour, music, local knowledge and fun to a truly wonderful landscape. Eileen Donan and Skye were more beautiful than we could have ever expected. It was so worthwhile and the guys worked so hard to make sure everyone had the best day possible. If you are planning on this trip please give a little something extra to your guides as it's so sad to see folk get off the bus at the end of the day without leaving a tip. The effort put in by the guides is enormous and after spending a 12 hour day driving, educating and taking care of you they deserve a little appreciation.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi there, thank you for your review! It's really good to hear that you could tell Luke and Vlad were really going to a great deal of effort to provide a fab tour and I'm glad it paid off. The Isle of Skye tour is beautiful and it's always that wee bit better with a fab commentary and safe driving. Hopefully we will see you again some day soon. All the best, David
