    I really enjoyed my tour . The timing was very well done, and our 2 drivers (Andrew and Fergus were very nice and very knowledgeable). Some of the accomodations were less nice than expected given the price but overall, no complaints at all.

    Both Andrew and David were excellent drivers/guides. Each with an unique style. We had a wonderful group of passengers and an unforgettable experience. If I may make one criticism, a little silence every now and again to take in the stunning surroundings would have also been appreciated but the amount of history both men knew was remarkable. I'd definitely recommend you!

    This was an excellent tour, Martin and I enjoyed it immensely; we only wish we could have kept travelling for another 8 days! Both Andrew and David were super guides. They both had their own style, one was a strict time keeper while the other was somewhat more laid back. Our group was also brilliant, age range 28 - 72. I've already recommended Highland Experience to many people on Facebook.
