Hi Erica Thank you for your detailed review of our Loch Ness, Glencoe & Highlands tour from Edinburgh. It's great to see that you enjoyed your time with Alan. A 2 day tour is the perfect way to see the highlands in a more relaxed manner and the 1 day tour is great if you have a very short period of time in Scotland. We hope you'll come and explore some more with us on a multi day tour in the future! Best Wishes Martin
