A true gem!

Our guide Jacqueline was so nice, informative and really knows the area so well. The van was very comfortable, she knows great places along the ways and was an absolute charm. I will def use again if I get a chance to go back to Scotland.

I was scheduled to take the Scottish highlands tour with my father. The day before the tour he developed a cough, sore throat and some congestion. Out of courtesy and caution to other tour members we decided not to go on the tour and reached out to the company the day before. We were flatly told that company policy was “no refunds for cancellations within 24 hours”. I understand the need for a policy but it would seem this would discourage sick customers from doing the responsible thing and cancel and encourages customers to “go anyway” and possibly expose other customers to illness(most notably Covid in these times)
Response from Host, Aug 2023
We appreciate the disappointment that unexpected illness can cause when you have plans and tours booked. We received your email message late on the evening before your tour, however we had not yet had a chance to respond to your original message. It is Viator company policy which states no refunds or cancellations within 24 hours, you did not receive this response from us, the tour operator. We apologize for not responding on the day of your tour, we recognize this will have added to your disappointment. We are a small team and we sometimes take a little longer to catch up with our administration.
Amazing Tour
