    It was wonderful, our guide Erin M. made it absolutely entertaining with the history and different story about all the different places we seen, while telling about the history from Scotland she also played different types of Scottisch musik, the stop in Oban could have been

    Stay away from this company. I have traveled extensively and used tour companies in the past. Never have I ever had this level of maltreatment. We spent thousands of dollars to get our son to his ancestral homelands in Scotland from the US. We chose the Highland Experience for

    Response from ExperienceTeam, Public Relations Manager at Oban and the West Highlands Day Trip from Edinburgh
    Responded 29 Jul 2019
    Hi there, Thank you for your review I am sorry to read your negative review of your tour. Our seats are on a 'first come, first serve' basis and we do not guarantee these. We were unaware prior to your tour that you wished to have these seats otherwise we could have mentioned this to the driver, however again these are not guaranteed. As we discussed directly over email, our buses are never left unattended. I fully investigated your comments at the time and spoke to your guide who explained that he was standing at the back of the bus whilst other passengers were still on the bus therefore the bus was never left unattended. We take all feedback we receive seriously so we can continuously improve our tours. Kind Regards, Natalie

    Our guide Stephen Hitch was informative, humorous, and thoughtful. It was a long day and, of course, we wanted to stay longer at each stop! An exquisite lunch in lovely Oban was the perfect midday stop. Inveraray Castle is well worth the admission price especially since Stephen
