From Edinburgh: 3-Day Isle of Skye and The Highlands Tour
- Duration: 3 days
THIS TOUR WAS EXCEPTIONAL! Reasonably priced. Highly recommend it. Our tour guide Jim Scott was great. Hilarious guy. Could've sat in the bus for 9,5h and do nothing and it still would've been great. He told us lots of interesting stories and facts, played music, gave tips and recommendations (where to eat, drink, what to visit) and they all were spot on. The day passed quickly, but we didn't feel rushed. Sights were beautiful. The nature there really is something to see. Whether it rains or shines, it's beautiful. Dewar's distillery was also really great experience. Interesting, informative and the tasting (especially from the cask) was eye-opening. Loved everything about the tour! Gladly would go again.
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.
This tour is brilliant and very well-managed. There are plenty of stops along the way and plenty of chances for you to experience the beauty of the Scottish Highlands. As a Harry Potter fan, the highlight for me is definitely the Jacobite Steam Train, and not a lot of tours bring you to that. We also met a few highland cows and gosh they are cute. The coach is very comfortable too. Our guide Iain also made our trip super fun and enjoyable. He is knowledgeable and has bunch of funny tales to share. Definitely recommend this tour.
Our trip was actioned packed, but didn’t feel rushed at all. Scott our tour guide was funny and informative and made us feel cared for and welcomed. He told us stories and fun facts about all the sites. We needed the tour feeling like a big group of friends. I’m leaving Scotland wanting more. I was so inspired by this trip I’ll be looking to book the 5 day tour next year! I 100% recommend the hairy coo tours!
Had a wonderful experience exploring the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye, would definitely like to come back again sometime. Our driver-cum-guide Stephen was amazing both with his witty jokes and his stories about Scottish history. Memories that would last forever!
