It was my second tour with MacBackpackers (I did the 3-day-Isle of Skye-tour June 2012 with a guide called Ruthie) and if possible I would even give 6* for everything.
I enjoyed it so much again!
This time our guide was called Neil.
We had so much fun and he told us about everything (We were and I am still wondering how one person could remember all this stuff about history, myth and so much more! It was great to listen).
And not to forget the nice Céilidh evening!
I am still missing Scotland again and I already decided month ago, that I will live there for a while in future, when I finished my apprentinceship.
And if I do another tour around Scotland - well.. I definitely will! - It will absolutely be MacBackpackers again! :)
