 Oban & the Western Highlands Private Tour – Scott

Our entire group agreed that the tour was  fantastic.  Our driver (Stewart) was very personable and knowledgeable.  Both the adults and teenagers in our group enjoyed conversations with him, and we would highly recommend his services to others. The highlights of the tour were Oban and St. Conan’s Kirk.  We’ll definitely contact Discover Scotland when we return in the future.  Thanks for all your help. 

Isle of Skye 3 Day Tour – Claire

I am writing in to tell you how wonderful our time with Colin was this week. He was knowledgeable and really made our trip special. He anticipated everything we needed before we even knew we needed it. Every recommendation he made for shops or restaurants were perfect for us. We were able to get to attractions so fast with the private tour and loved not having to wait on anyone, that’s why we do private :). He was early for pick up, helpful with anything we needed, and along the way made us laugh. My mother, sister and I have been wanting to do a trip together for so long and finally made it happen. If it wasn’t for your quick responses and Colin, it would not have been as special. We had the absolute best time. Please pass along our gratitude to Colin. Thank you again, Claire

Isle of Skye 3 Day Tour – Glenn

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Highlands! Michael was a tremendous tour guide. We all appreciated and looked forward to Michael’s stories and commentary on all of our stops. The itinerary included plenty of stops and hiking as we requested. The hike to the Fairy Pools was fantastic! Thank you for all your time and effort and giving us a tour of the Highlands that will not be forgotten! Glenn

Glenfinnan, Mallaig & Jacobite Steam Train Tour – Georgina & Sam

We wanted to say thank you so much for such a wonderful tour on 29th September! We both had the best time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! What a great way to celebrate my 30th!! Jeff was an absolute star throughout the day. His knowledge of the areas, fun facts and humour added a great dynamic to the journey and was flexible in terms of what we wanted to see and when. His enthusiasm and passion for Scotland shone and it was such a nice addition to the day. Ultimately even with the most beautiful train ride in the world, Jeff almost stole the show!! Marghrad, thank you so much for the lovely Harry Potter decorations and goodies that were in the bus! It was such a surprise and really added an extra special sparkle to the whole day! I loved all of it (Sam too), and even more so that you added a Scottish twist to the sweets! Muggle Munchies being Iron Bru jelly babies, the pumpkin juice and even the dementor relief chocolate being Tunnock’s Chocolate Bar. So thoughtful, clever and very much appreciated. Thank you so much for these extra touches, it truly meant a lot 🙂

Highland Lochs, Glens & Castles Private Tour – Anuja

It was indeed a great experience. Thank you for arranging the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable indeed.

Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle & the Kelpies Private Tour – The Artheys

Firstly, I was very impressed with the speed of response and ease of arranging the tour prior to the day and your communication in general. Michael was great from start to finish with his great outfit, anecdotes and information during the trip! Some interesting music and probably the first Xmas tunes of the year! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great … boat trip would have been more enjoyable with better weather but obviously out of your control. Overall a great day which everyone from the youngest (9yrs) to eldest(77) enjoyed.

Oban, Western Highlands, Lochs, Castles & Glencoe Tour – Ramakrishna

The tour went on well as expected and John was very accommodative. It was a much needed break for all of us post the pandemic lockdown and we were not let down. Thanks a lot for all the assistance provided from start to finish. 

Glenfinnan, Glencoe & Loch Lomond Private Tour – Anita

The tour that we had on the 3rd of August 2021 most amazing all of us in the boss on the tour loved the experience very much. Our tour leader ‘John’ was incredible he was quirky, friendly, professional, and really understanding he provided us with the experience that we hoped for explaining in detail about Scotland. We had lots of time to experience everything that was offered on the tour that was tailor made for us. In particular I was incredibly touched by the way in which the tool bus was decorated with lots of tassels and a happy birthday sign I was also very touched and pleased that you took the time to make individual party bags to each one of us and included a special party bag for myself and my daughter being the birthday people in the group I loved the card and so did my daughter and we will keep these for a very long time, I want to thank you for taking the time out to add the special touches we very much appreciated this. This made it feel like a real birthday experience. I have already recommended you too some of my friends and I will continue to do so as I as I found your company to be very thoughtful and one that goes the extra mile in my opinion again, I would like to thank you for my experience my family were also very pleased. Anita

Glenfinnan, Glencoe & Loch Lomond Private Tour – Julie

We had the most wonderful day! John was brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. His knowledge was extensive and fascinating and we loved all the stories about the clans and fairies !!! The scenery was stunning and we are already planning our next trip to the highlands. Thank you and thanks to John too.

Isle of Skye Private Tour – Tatiana

We had a lovely time and this trip was definitely the highlight of our travels throughout Scotland. We enjoyed it immensely! Thanks so much for providing excellent customer service and being on top of things at all times. I will strongly encourage my successor to book the next CNU tours through you. I can’t believe that I will be leaving Scotland so soon! I will miss it dearly.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh & Loch Katrine Private Tours – David

Many thanks to you and the company for having organised the tours for the reunion. The weather intruded but did not fundamentally change things and arguably showed how changeable it can be in the West of Scotland with contrasts as stark as they were on Monday when Loch Katrine was enveloped in mist in the morning whereas Stirling Castle in the afternoon was bathed in sunshine. Fabulous! Lunch at the Lade Inn was good and went without a hitch. The Mackintosh day was also successful. The exhibition at the Tea Room was good and worthwhile. John the driver was greatly appreciated. He was courteous, patient and helpful. For a group of ageing visitors, it was a real bonus. All in all a great success and so a big thank you all around.

Loch Lomond Private Shore Excursion – Shannon

We had the MOST WONDERFUL time on our shore excursion! Callum was absolutely fantastic and we cannot say enough good things about him, the itinerary, the tour and our entire experience with Discover Scotland. Callum was incredibly knowledgeable, informative, personable and fun, and really made our stop in Glasgow the highlight of our trip. Thank you, as well, for organizing all of this for us, and extend our gratitude to Callum and your entire team. It was a truly special experience.

Isle of Skye Private Tour – Marjorie

My family really wanted to thank everyone at Discover Scotland who helped to make this an incredibly special, forever memorable, one of a kind, deeply impressionable beautiful trip of Scotland! What a spectacular holiday we enjoyed through your company.  Cliff, our tour guide and driver, is a real gem, an incredible source of knowledge and full of the colorful history and so many entertaining stories of Scotland, a very safe and reliable driver, and a true gentleman full of compassion and support for all in our party from our young children to our 83 year old mum.  There were real tears of sadness from some of our children’s eyes when our tour ended for saying goodbye’s with the warm and wonderful Cliff. We genuinely hope for many returns to Scotland in the future, and for your continued success and prosperity as a company.
