It was a fabulous experience! The trip is done in a small group, our guide Marita was very cheerful and dynamic and we had a great day! The program varied slightly from what was announced, but for the better: instead of going to the beach (it was a bit ugly) we went to see magnificent and very well preserved Cairns which we were able to enter! As we took this tour around April/May we were also lucky enough to see seals and puffins, as well as an impressive falconry show at the castle. Thank you very much to our guide! :)

What an eventful day! We were so lucky with the sunny weather and our guide, Marita made sure we had a fantastic time and we saw as much as we could. She is very energetic and knowledgeable about so many things and so enthusiastic about the culture and the Highlands. Thank you Marita, would book again!

Overall an excellent tour well run by driver Julian. Perhaps too much info given at times, but missed nothing out.

Great overall experience with the highlight being the visit to Dunrobin Castle.

Great day, Marita was very knowledgeable and good fun.
