Great tour guide; poor website management
Pamela_S, Sep 2023
We had a wonderful day with our tour guide, Gordon. He took us to the Callanish Stones, a beautiful beach where the chessmen were found, and finally to the Gearranan Blackhouses. He gladly shared all kinds of cultural information with us, and he was just a fantastic tour guide. With all that being said, I must admit that there was a great deal of confusion about this tour. We had originally signed up for the Isle of Lewis tour, but the location where we were supposed to meet was very unclear. After calling the original tour guide, I finally discovered where we were supposed to meet, and that we could switch to a different tour. Everything worked out fine, but if a tour is going to be canceled, it should not be advertised online.
Not as advertised Not worth the money
Kenneth_B, Aug 2023
Very disappointed At meetup did not see any sign or greeter about Viator Saw several buses but expecting a van Advertised as group of 8 at max Not expecting a bus of 36 Bus left without us and it cost a $50 taxi to catch up with group Tour only went to only one of 3 stops listed Did not go to church with crusader tombs and never made it to Harris Just s beach and the Black Houses Returned to dock after 4 hours not 6 as listed A huge disappointment and a waste of money
Great tour in the countryside
Jonathan_S, Aug 2023
We enjoyed seeing the Scottish countryside. We were taken to interesting places we would have never found on our own. Our guide and driver were great.
JOSE_D, Aug 2023
Nothing, because the Cruise arrived late and can not do the excursion. I sent a WhatsApp to the tour operador and they dont answer me
Memorable day
Angela_W, Jul 2023
Brilliant tour of Northern Ireland, Giants Causeway and Murals 2 in 1. Paul was fantastic and gave us all the insider knowledge for a fully memorable day, it was one of the best tours we’ve experienced. He somehow got the weather to cooperate as well.
No Refunds
JENNIFER_F, Jul 2023
Please Note- if you choose this tour and arriving into port via cruise, if there is a chance you miss the port (which happened to us due to weather) you will not be refunded. Tour operator was also a bit rude and not willing to work with us. Tour Operator is not capable of handling any hiccups - please be aware of no refunds. We were out almost $600 - might not be a bad idea to book directly through cruise lines in the future.
Private tour booked - didn’t show/happen
Luann_D, Jul 2023
We scheduled a private tour for four. The tour guide/owner had apparently WAAAY overbooked. We texted and called the morning of our tour - no response. We called again at port - she answered, yet when asked Re: our tour - immediately said that we could get our money back. We were told she had a large bus there - we walked to her and she complained that many people had cancelled and “showed up anyway.” She then said we could get on the bus, yet immediately stopped us and said no - she went back to port center with no explanation. I went to find her - she was on phone, trying to schedule another bus! Thank goodness a cruise ambassador made several calls and found us a cab with ani e local gentleman to take us around. I will be contacting Viator for a full refund. As well, we later found out that she had booked many others from our cruise as a private tour, which didn’t happen. Of note: she never once apologized. On the contrary, she was abrupt and mean … as if it was our fault. I had my reservation ticket and booking reference, in hand. Incredibly unprofessional. Do NOT book this tour.
Noy a Good Day Trip

Look for Annie's Love Bus!
James_K, Jun 2023
Annie is wonderful in her LoveBus. She knows the island and will give you a memorable day's outing. If you're interested in woolens, History or just the beauty, she can take to the place.
Thoroughly enjoyed our day
Andrew_G, May 2023
Annie, our tour guide and driver of the van we traveled in, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and culture of the island. Because she works from a van rather than a large bus, she was able to bring us to unique locations not readily accessible to larger vehicles.
Great tour
Glenn_J, Aug 2022
Our tour guide, Annie, was superb. I would recommend this tour to anybody. Annie was knowledgeable and funny. It was our pleasure to spend an afternoon with her
Fantastic tour!
Anne_K, Aug 2022
An absolutely excellent day spent exploring with Annie! She tailored the tour to the things our small group wanted to see, and gave us insights and stories only a local would know. My favorites were the Bosta Iron Age house and swimming at Luskentyre (brisk, but refreshing). Plus, the start was not too early in the morning for me, and we were back in time for dinner. I could not recommend Annie more highly!
No one showed up for the...
Steve_J, Aug 2022
No one showed up for the tour. We waited at the designated meeting placed for over an hour after the agreed upon time.
Incomparable tour!
Aida_R, Jul 2022
I wouldn’t have enough words to describe what an incredible experience we had with Annie! You hit the jackpot if you’re lucky enough to have her as your guide. What an amazing, inside look at history and breathtaking views with laughs along the way. Her storytelling is wonderful and we were so sad when it was over. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
A day of Gaelic land and life
BarbaraAnnan, Jun 2022
Meeting the weaver of Harris tweed. Hearing Scottish Gaelic spoken, walking the beaches by the incredible blues of the sea, hearing stories of the land and feeling so at home. Annie our guide did an outstanding job of taking photos for me and welcoming and interpreting, so much so that I am already planning to go back for more.
An Excellent Day Out
KENNETH_D, Aug 2021
Our driver Annie was excellent. She was very informative and friendly. She gave us ample time to see the tourist spots and places of interest. My wife and I loved the tour, and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Stornoway. We can't wait until our next visit.
