Loved this tour!

We loved it all. Our guide, Stuart, was amazing. He was super knowledgeable and hilarious! He just made the trip easy and fun. The Castle was everything we expected it to be. We loved the Kelpies. The Loch cruise was nice, but if I had it to do again, I’d skip the cruise and go into town. Oh and did I mention that our guide, Stuart, was fabulous!!!!

Excellent day out

Really enjoyable tour and accessible way of seeing a bit of the beautiful country of Scotland if you only have a short amount of time here. Our guide Stuart did a brilliant job at regailing us with facts and keeping us entertained with Scottish music as we drove around. Bear in mind you only get about an hour and a half at sterling castle and there is a lot to see there so if you want to see mainly that it might be better to do as a separate trip.

Thanks for your review, Debs! I'll pass on your kind words to Stuart - he'll be delighted! All the best, Amy

Cramped seats on the bus

Overall the holiday was great. The driver/guide was excellent. But seats on coach was bit cramped. Need the seats to be little larger.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Hi Rajesh, Thanks for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your tour as much as you had hoped. The seating on all of our coaches are standard sizing; and larger than airplane seats. I'm sorry these weren't large enough! I hope you enjoyed seeing Scotland nonetheless! Best wishes, Amy

Nice trip.

Paul was my driver/guide and be was awesome. He told us lots of stories on the way. The kelpies are stunning and worth seeing. The cruise on Loch Lomond was okay - could have been better had the weather cooperated lols. Stirling castle was amazing - it gave me game of thrones vibes for some reason (even though the show was not filmed there). The little town we stopped in for lunch was cute and it had plenty of options - i had a toastie and hot choc at the Station coffee shop and it was good. Nice trip all around.

Thank you for your review, Denisa. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed your day with Paul, I'll pass on your kind words to him! I'm sorry the Scottish weather wasn't as cooperative as you'd hoped, but I'm sure it was an authentic experience ;) All the best, Amy
