Honestly? This was the most disappointing part of our entire trip. I was so looking forward to this tour and it was a disaster from start to end. Our guide was clearly displeased to have us on board with our children (he actually said "Oh, this will be fun." with sarcasm as we

Hi there, I am sorry to hear you didn't have an amazing experience with us. We take all feedback we receive seriously in order to improve our tour services. We have received many positive comments about John before in which people have enjoyed his knowledge and storytelling during their tours. John has been involved in an intense programme of tour guiding in which we felt that he was ready to conduct this tour specifically. I have passed your comments onto our Transport Manager who will speak with your guide, John, and determine where further training is required, in order to provide a more in-depth commentary throughout. I can assure you that this behaviour is not acceptable or condoned within Highland Experience Tours and we are currently investigating the matter. Please note that at the time of your booking, it was specified on our website that the visit of the Urquhart Castle and the cruise on the Loch Ness were not included as they were offered an optional extra package together. I also understand that you have emailed us directly to discuss this further. Thank you for taking the time to review your tour. Once again, I apologise that you were unable to experience the beautiful Scottish Highlands with us. Kind Regards, Laurine

Had an amazing experience in this trip. Erin the your guide was fantastic - shared a lot of stories and information throughout the whole trip! Fran, the driver, was great too! Boat trip and castle are well worth the extra pennies - overall had a fantastic day!

Thanks to Lord John, we had a great time on this very long drive. His driving was perfect agains the odds of Scotlands back roads and his stories and humor kept us entertained during the long hauls. He was also a willing and good photographer! Take this trip! We added the

I was on a mini-bus tour with the guide and driver Lord John. Overall this tour is good value for money and gives a good insight what the nature in central Scotland and the Highland looks like. I really appreciated that John tried to avoid the more touristy places and had his
