This tour was so amazing. Our guide waited for us! We were a bit confused on where to meet and they let him know. Our guide knew so much about scotland and it was amazing to hear everything he had to say. Sterling castle was brilliant! I love the history there and was thrilled to explore the castle. They also have free tours at the castle so when you stop you dont have to pay for an audio guide. Loch Lohman and all of the lakes were stunning. I now can see why so many ports wrote about them. I dont drink but it was fascinating to learn about how scotch is made! I really enjoyed this tour and would love to do a similar one in another country soon.

Did this day trip alone and had an amazing day! The driver Stevie was funny, knowledgeable and professional. He told just the right amounts of history so that the trip was interesting and enjoyable without feeling like a history lecture. The tours were beautiful. The bus stopped for great pictures of Stirling castle he took us up to a small cove for beautiful pictures of Loch Lomond and the highlands. The Glengoyne tour at the end was well worth it. I recommend the Wee Tour with two drams. Highly recommend this trip overall! A fantastic way to spend a day and not tiring like many day tours.

This tour was awesome. Ben was full of interesting tales and we had plenty of time at all stops. We even stopped to see some Highland Cows. It was a great unexpected treat.

I can't say enough about this fantastic tour. We were spoiled by amazing weather but nevertheless I highly recommend this trip. If you are lucky you will get Grant Scott as your guide - he was so good. We were six guys on a stag weekend suffering from hangovers and dragged out of bed quite early to meet the bus. But it was well worth it as Grant quickly raised our spirits with his banter and good humour! Book it without any hesitation great value for money. Note the entry fees to attractions are not included - but well worth the extra cost paid on the day.

This was a very good tour. A little history, a little nature and a little whisky! Not too long of a drive between stops. Fraser was great. Funny. Kind. Knew when to stop talking and when to inform.

The trip was fantastic. Our driver, Allen, is outstanding at what he does. He clearly had an itinerary of what to talk about and when during the drive, and it was perfect. He made me laugh. His sense of humor was incredible. He had jokes to tell, sure, but he also had a wit about him that was hilarious. He taught me history and facts of Scotland. I learned about Sir William Wallace; Scottish folklore, music and history; the coat color of a particular cow; and much more. He made me inwardly reflect. A story he told coupled with an extended pause in his speech and views of the gorgeous Scottish countryside gave me ample time think deeply. I travelled alone, but not once did I feel alone. I cannot speak highly enough of my guide, Allen. The locations were great as well. Stirling Castle was great to explore. We stopped at a few places around Loch Lomond to take pictures. We stopped in Aberdoyle, a charming little town with nice shops, eateries and bars. I could have spent half a day just wandering around Aberdoyle. Our last destination was Glengoyne Distillery, and it was a complete joy. The scotch is premier. If you choose this trip, I do not think you will be disappointed. If you get Allen as a guide, I know you won't be disappointed. Have fun and safe travels!

This was my third visit in the past five years. Perched on the volcanic rock outcropping overlooking the glen and bridge where William Wallace won the battle of Sterling Bridge, Stirling Castle is the epitome of 16th Century castles. This is no ruin but a dynamically restored Castle with wall paintings and beautifully reproduced tapestries. Costumed docents help to explain rooms and furnishings in the palace and it’s worth taking a tour with one of the Historic Scotland guides for an overview of the castle’s history. Be sure to check out the various galleries, especially the one that displays the ceiling bosses from the time of King James.

Great tour and such a nice day! Highly recommend getting out of Glasgow to see the countryside. Stirling Castle is amazing. The scenery around the loch was so beautiful. The whisky stop was really very cool. Ian was our guide and he did a great job. So much history and stories shared. We all have very fond memories of him as a guide. It was such a nice day and thank you to Ian for the memories you left us with.
