The 3-day Isle of Skye tour was sensational, the only thing I wish it had gone for longer, next time I'll definitely be booking the five day. But hats off to Neil who was brilliant, he went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable, showed us the beautiful sights along the way with great music in the background, told us heaps of descriptive animated stories about traditional folklore, gave us lots of information and maybe a few fun porkiepies (fibs). But overall a fantastic experience of a majestical place. I initially was a little nervous joining since I was travelling alone but felt straight away comfortable and at ease on the bus. I would definitely recommended anyone going to Scotland to book this tour, or even suggest that you book the longer one because it's so much fun ! :-)
