A great way to see the (many) highlights of Skye
Jun. 2021 • Solo
I had a fantastic day touring Skye with Donald, who was full of fun facts and happy to answer my myriad of questions. The tour started promptly (always a plus!) and went at a good pace. No stop felt rushed. Plenty of beautiful sights along the way and great photo opportunities.

Thanks too to Clare for being so quick and friendly in replying to my emails, and for being so understanding when I had to cancel last year due to Covid.

Highly recommended for those visiting Skye without a car (like me) or those who want a break from driving - and learn a thing or two along the way.

Wonderful tour with a charismatic guide. Exceptionally well invested time spent using this tour company to be driven to the most mesmerisingly beautiful spots on Skye. Never a dull moment with Donald at the helm with his great knowledge, tips and humour....highly recommended

Great locations
May 2021 • Couples
Had a superb day tour of the whole of Skye with very knowledgable, humorous guide, Donald. Lots of time at each spot and as one of the locations had quite a lot of walking, an option was given. Gorgeous, scenery and I liked fact you could get out and about at each stop. I liked fact tour departed promptly and was back on time. Packed lunch advised. Great day and well worth the money.

A must do when visiting Skye
May 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed our scenic tour of Skye with Donald, who was a great laugh and very knowledgeable. We were picked up and dropped off from where we were staying, which is an excellent service.

We were given plenty of time at each stop to take
it all in. There is some walking involved, some of which is across stepping stones and loose rock, but this is optional. Donald knows all the best places to stop for those all important photo opportunities.

There is a stop at a new cafeteria where you can purchase drinks and snacks but not much else, so would recommend taking a packed lunch.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend doing this tour. It was approximately 8-9 hours long, but the time flew and we enjoyed every minute.

A must-do tour in Skye!
Sep. 2020
Terrific tour! Donald was hilarious and knowledgeable. This tour took the stress away by having someone guide you through the winding roads of Skye to the most scenic spots. We had a spare day following this tour, so we made sure to return to our favorite spots for longer hikes and to take in more of the views. Whether you are short on time in Skye or have a few days, you won't regret this tour!

Beautiful!
Just home from the most stunning tour of Skye! Donald, our driver and tour guide was so friendly, funny and informative. We spent 8-9 hours on the road but it was absolutely worth it for the scenery and photos we got..also managed a dip in the fairy pools!

The weather was completely on our side and stayed that way the whole day.

You have to do this trip whilst visiting the island!
