Nice Day
, Jun 2019
We had a good experience on this tour. Our Guide was Mo who was very easy going and knowledgeable. She went out of her way to explain the stops and help us navigate the areas. Our driver Sharon was also very nice. Cawdor Castle is worth seeing however we had visited about 10 castles during our time in the UK so there was some redundancy. The stop at Inverness was good but too short. ( 60 Min) You'll only have time for either a sit down lunch or walking around to see the city. Tough to do both. The stop at Loch Ness was along the side of the road and was not in a particularity scenic spot, still it was good to see the Loch but unfortunately we didn't see Nessie. The visit to Glen Ord Distillery was fantastic. As a scotch drinker it was great to see how the whiskey was made. Andy our guide at Glen Ord was terrific and there is an opportunity to taste and buy some of their single malts

When my spouse started climbing stairs, there was no way to backtrack to exit. Whiskey tasting and distillery highly overrated. If you have ever seen any kind of distillery, this offered nothing new

First, we arrived where the guide was supposed to be.....6 or 7 guides were there but not ours. Then when he Finally arrived, we had a 6 block walk in the misty rain to get to the bus. Not a great start. I had tried to pay in advance for the Whiskey tasting and Castle but they don't accept Pay Pal and told me to call....what savings is that? After my husband (uses a cane) had the long walk, he refused to pay extra... The tour was ok but a lot of money, imo, for what we got...if the Castle and Whisky tasting had been included the price would have been good.
Good Tour for a large group

I purchased this tour, thinking we were getting a 16 passenger bus. We got a 50 passenger bus, full to the doors. The tour itself was as advertised with very brief stops a few times, prolonged by straggling passengers coming back late (this is why I wanted a smaller tour). We only had an hour in Inverness, which deserved so much more time. The tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. I just felt rushed everywhere we went.
