Great tour of Skye

This tour was a good way to get a great view of Skye without driving there. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and considerate of everyone's needs.

Ange took us on a day long trip to Skye & John took us on a Whisky tour. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable & obviously love their jobs! Cameron goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. This group is one of the many reasons why Inverness is our favorite destination!
