Head into the Highlands...

Leaving the capital behind us we travel to join with our fellow travellers from Glasgow.

Then take in the majestic sweep of the Great Glen and the stunning heights of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. We'll drive along Loch Ness and sleep by the shores of its beautiful and tranquil loch.

Tour Reviews


Sergio was an amazing tour guide! Even though not originally from Scotland, he has lived there for many years and has a wealth of knowledge. He also has a great sense of humour and made an effort to get to know each of us. We were on a small group tour of 9, so the experience was even better than I could have imagined. Our B&B in Fort Augustus, The White House, was very charming and run by two wonderful men. Every stop of this tour was perfect. There wasn’t one thing I would have wished to skip. From seeing the highland coos and getting to pet them, to beautiful waterfalls and beaches, to castles and even tourist shopping in towns... It was all wonderful! Paying extra for Urquhart Castle and The Loch Ness Cruise was well worth it!

Our amazing guide Sergio made these 2 days the highlight of my trip to Scotland. He was simply everything I could have asked for – one of the nicest people I have ever met, hilarious guy who makes his listeners laugh out loud, sit thrilled and listen carefully to his interesting and fascinating stories, he takes care for his group and he gladly shares his great wide knowledge and makes sure everyone is having an awesome time. He listened to every wish and took us to see all the beautiful places we asked for, together with Guillermo our driver, who was so kind and sympathetic who also shared some interesting details and drove us safely everywhere. I wish everyone who goes on this trip to have the experience I had.

Our tour guide Sergio made this 2 day trip of the Highlands unforgettable. There were many stops along the way for photos, and lots of anecdotes about the area and the history. Very enjoyable. Sergio also made time to get to know all the passengers and to make sure we were all having a great time. Add in some fun jokes and the time went very fast! Would book with him again on a future trip!
