What an amazing tour. I knew Scotland was beautiful but being in the Highlands confirmed it. Kenny was my tour guide and my friends and I absolutely loved him! He was so friendly, warm and knowledgable which made the tour 10x worth it, I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. We truly learned so much of Scotland's history because of him. So glad to experience his first overnight trip with us, we all had a blast. I would definitely recommend this tour, and to ask for Kenny! x

Hi there, thank you for your review! I'm happy to hear you had such a great time on your Loch Ness, Inverness & The Highlands tour with Kenny as your driver-guide. The Highlands really are beautiful, and it's great that having Kenny there made it even better as you learned so much! Hopefully we will see you again some day! Best wishes, David

Our tour guide Kenny was absolutely nice, wonderful, and accommodating! He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Highlands. Would definitely recommend this tour for those wanting to explore the Highlands.

The BEST tour we had in the U.K.!! Our tour guide Jim was amazing and went above and beyond for our trip through Scotland. During our Scotland trip we used Premiere Tours, Rabbie’s, and Timberbush and I regret using anyone besides Timberbush. Next time we go to Scotland we’re only using Timberbush and hoping we get Jim as our tour guide again!! 10/10 recommend.

I decided to take this tour whilst on holiday from South Africa. I missed the meet up due to a Scotrail delay but managed to catch up with the group for day 2 from Inverness. Our guide, Gillian was most welcoming. The places we visited were amazing, Gillian was most knowledgeable and interacted so well with the group. This trip was definitely the highlight of my holiday and look forward to further tours when I'm over again.

My family and I concur that Alan was an exceptionally excellent guide. We were amazed by the tour, and loved every hour of it. Alan's talent for story telling, guiding and history, along with admirable driving skills, really were fantastic. The bus was clean and comfortable, and the sights were beautiful and breathtaking. 10/10 recommend booking with Timberbush, and most especially that you ask when Alan is working.

the trip took almost 4-5 hours , we stopped for lunch in very average restaurant then when we reached the loch the asked us to either book ticket to visit castle or use the cruise and you have only 1:30 then directly you will return to Edinburgh, The driver was unfriendly at all , I inform the company and they did apologise but for a family I don't recommend it as it only driving for whole trip then staying only 1:30 and you need to pay for more tickets which cost a lot for family

Dear rory11379, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your tour with us. I'm sorry to hear that you found it to be a disappointing experience. Please note that we clearly explain the different options on our website so this shouldn't have come to you as a surprise on the day of your tour. Also This tour covers 350 miles, so unfortunately if we were adding more stops it wouldn't be feasible at all. I would like to apologise again for the attitude of our driver and I confirm that your feedback was forwarded to our Transport Team and Operation Manager who addressed the issue with him. Best Wishes, Ophelie
