  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    This trip was so great! We had Martin as our tour guide and he was charming and informative. The stops were beautiful, and he did his best to not have us on the bus for hours at a time. He was very knowledgeable about the route, and we benefited from it. Would do again!

    Great tour. Very knowledgeable guide. One criticism would be it was quite hard to hear what she was saying at time. Maybe a small speaker head set would be advisable though they possibly are not allowed ?

    My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with Russell! In addition to visiting several cafes and restaurants we probably wouldn't have gone to otherwise (all delicious) we learned a lot of history along the way. Russell also gave us a great recommendation for dinner that evening (Under the Stairs- check it out). Thanks again!

    We had Dusty drive us on our day trip! It was the most fantastic and informative trip! Dusty was so knowledgeable and friendly and the day wouldn’t have been the same without him. He went above and beyond with some great stops along the way. Thank you so much for a wonderful trip where we was celebrating a special 70th birthday. Would highly recommend. Thanks from the Kerley family.

    Great trip out to St Andrews and around Fife. Weather kind and our driver Swain was very helpful and knowledgable. St Andrews is a lovely little town with good dining options and shopping. Recommend visiting the ruined castle and cathedral

    Really enjoyed the experience and exploring parts of the city we wouldn’t otherwise been aware of. We were very fortunate to be the only ones booked on a tour so had a private tour. James Barry was our guide and made the experience even more enjoyable and a fountain of knowledge.
    Highly recommended tour

    I recently went on a day-long Outlanders tour guided by Cameron. What a knowledgeable, nice young man! Amazing how well he drove the bus and gave interesting commentary, both without missing a beat! The entire day was one great sight after another. Blackness Castle was probably my favorite. Thanks for offering this tour!

    I really enjoyed my trip around the highlands and isle of Skye! I got to see all the things I wanted to see while on tour. The group was a nice small size and it felt like you could really get to know the driver. Paul was a great guide with lots of good stories and facts. I would never have guessed he was still in his first year of doing tours.
