We saw a lot in only three days. Yes, there is a lot of bus riding, but I'm not sure what those complaining were expecting. It was during COVID restrictions, and the company was clear about expectations and provided a safe environment on the bus. Now, the bus was generally good. The minibus that had enough space and reclining seats. But on day two the bus was making so much noise it was rather annoying, and on the third day, it was borderline unbearable. Your guide was John, and he's a guide you'll hate loving. He's good with history as I was fact checking him. He was funny, accommodating and was going out of his way to grant some requests.

The tour was great, Brian is the nicest guy ever, had a lot of fun! Absolutely recommend this tour when you visit Scotland, the only way you can see so much in just 3 days!

The trip was great even though we only participated in 2 out of 3 days. The highlight was definitely the day on Skye and our guide Steve did a great job.

Colin is an excellent and funny guide! He is patient too, even with children. Have a great fun!
