We had Dusty as our guide/driver. He was extremely informative but made every story/fact fun and interesting. He went above and beyond for my daughter and I, used his own phone to help us book train tickets, helped by showing me where to get money exchanged. He is The Man, The Myth, The Legend!!!
Fantastic experience exploring beautiful Scotland

We couldn't have asked for a better tour of the Isle of Skye. Tim was an amazing tour guide, along with Tegan. We learned so much and saw so many amazing views! The B&B they arranged for us in Portree was a perfect place to rest at the end of the day. The hotel provided a wonderful breakfast. Could not recommend this tour enough! :)
Stunning Tour
