Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very personable, accommodating, informative and entertaining. The sites selected were amazing. I only wish we would have had more time at each amazing place, but it would have been impossible to get around to all the places. We couldn't see the lighthouse or the Man of Storr because the weather rolled in with thick fog and clouds, so that was a bummer. Dunvegan Castle was only a drive-by, so it was a good thing we had gone to see the castle and grounds the day before (which is definitely worth a visit). I would recommend taking this tour and then staying on Skye an extra day or two afterward so you can go back and explore all these amazing places more! We also appreciated the size of this tour with only 8 people and the van was comfortable and easy to see as we drove around. Our guide, who was very adept at helping everyone learn each other's names and feel comfortable, facilitated a quick easy family-sort-of-feeling among the group. Definitely, pack a lunch or some snacks. He did stop for coffee/hot chocolate once, which was great. Also, be sure to be ready to walk and even climb a bit (nothing strenuous, just a lot of uphill walking to see the sights). And, of course, be ready for wet and/or windy conditions. We got some amazing photos on this tour. Go, you won't regret it!

We were looking forward to this trip it was the highlight of our holiday and it didn’t disappoint. Donald was a brilliant guide funny and warm, he knew all of our names from the start.
We loved the music, chat and of course the stunning scenery.
The weather was fantastic very warm and Donald’s commentary of the outside temperature was perfect.
If you go on any tour make it this one!
Thanks so much for a tour of Skye we will always remember.

Great day in Isle of Skye with Donald. Great driver with lots of interesting local stories and history. We were able to see so much of the area in one day without the stress of driving narrow roads or navigating by the big tour buses. Small group (8) made it a truly wonderful day!!

We had an awesome private tour with Donald. He is very informative and has many funny stories. We saw all of the major stops and more. All we had to do was ask and Donald did his best to accommodate. He and Clare were very quick to answer any questions we had via email. Great day! Would highly recommend Skye Scenic Tours to friends and family,.

Donald brought a sense of adventure and humour to the tour which was very welcome, given the challenging weather at times. Knowing local weather conditions so well, Donald adapted the itinerary to give us the best opportunity of actually seeing the sights instead of staring forlornly into the mist. We learned so much about the island and its communities.
Such a worthwhile tour.
We really enjoyed the day.

This tour was the absolute perfect way to see all of the glorious sights on the Isle of Skye. My wife and I couldn't imagine how long it would have taken to navigate the island to see everything that we were able to see on the tour. Donald is the perfect tour guide - very knowledgable and funny. Knowing the island so well, he was constantly changing the itinerary on the fly due to the weather, while always checking with us on what we wanted to see. In the end, he was able to take us everywhere... entertaining us all along the way. This tour can't be beat, especially for the price.
