A trip not to be missed

Great trip with Timberbush tours. Ray our driver, guide, DJ, storyteller and all round passionate scot, was tremondous. The drive was great with plenty sightseeing and toilet breaks. If the weather fails you the trip is tweeked so you always have something to see. A long 12 hr day, but to be honest it goes so quick as you have things to see and Ray's interesting stories and music to listen to, time just flies by. If I had had a history teacher like him at school, I would have paid more attention. X A trip not be missed. X

It was a great trip with a good pause rhythm. The landscapes are gorgeous and happy to know more about Scottish culture. Our guide was a great story-teller and we are impressed by his professional tour guide. The only thing we found a shame was that we felt be treated slightly differently compared with other visitors. For example at one of shots spot, he let other visitors get down the bus before and was greeting with them, we were the last ones to get down, he chose to ignore us and got down the bus before us, and this is not only a coincidence happened once. We know these are just small things, we won’t say it’s racist directly, but we are still wondering if it’s because our Asian appearance. We are here to embrace Scottish Culture like other visitors in the same bus. Hopefully if one day we come back we could feel more welcomed like any other people in world.

Hi Sisi, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your tour as much as you had hoped. I have passed on your comments to your Driver-Guide's direct line manager for review. I completely sympathise with your view; your Driver-Guide is quite shocked and has communicated that he didn't think he had treated anyone differently on tour. He would like to extend a sincere apology for making you feel this way and will work to make sure this doesn't happen again. I do hope that despite this, you enjoyed seeing more of the highlands with us. Best wishes, Amy

Long exhausting day, but wow what amazing scenery, Ryan was a great guide - so much knowledge and wearing The Kilt! Shame the weather in Skye wasnt kind to us, but it gives us an excuse to go back in better weather to see the views unobscured by the rain and mist.

Driver/guide Chris made our one day 12 hours trip to Isle of Skye and Eilen Donan casle as well as to highlands on very narrow roads memorable with his commitment and passion for his job, experience, patience, sense of humour, safe driving and he stopped on all worth seeing places. Mini bus was very luxury, no tiredness. It was value for money. I highly recommend this trip.
