Well worth it!

Had a fantastic trip. Our driver Stuart went above and beyond to make our trip exciting, from interesting facts to fun anecdotes whilst keeping us entertained with fitting music! Although the weather wasn’t great we saw some beautiful sights! We travelled with a young child who really enjoyed the trip!

Best value for money for a trip there was so much on the tour you def got your moneys worth. Make sure you pay the £10 to visit the castle the history is amazing. Am already looking at another viator tour. Cannot wait. Thank you so much

My family and I went on this day trip July 2, 2019 and really enjoyed it. It was a long day, but our guide Jamie was so knowledgeable and entertaining that it went by so quickly. We loved seeing Inveraray Caste, Oban as well as Glencoe and the Highlands which are truly magnificent. One of the best parts was when my son was able to feed one of the deer Jamie called over. Such an amazing experience to see so much of Scotland's beauty in one day.

First-time Timberbush daytrippers

Wonderful day! Easy to find the pick-up location. Our guide Robert, from the beginning, provided history and many points of interest as we left Glasgow followed by jokes and well planned musical ties to his stories to keep everyone interested and entertained. Prior to booking, we would have preferred to know that significant time for lunch in Oban was planned and that there were many options to choose from while there. That being said, great day. More music and stories for the return leg. Even the weather co-operated for the most part. We won't hesitate to book with Timberbush again. Thanks again Robert!
