The tour with the Wee Red Bus was simply wonderful. Our tour guide and driver Graham told very interesting stories while driving at the same time - in my eyes a very complicated combination ;-) But he managed it just perfectly. The tour was exactly as described on the website. The stops at Stirling Castle, in Calendar, at Loch Lomond, the Distillery Glengoyne and even a short stop for taking photos from a small family of Highland Cows (Hamish, Honey and their daughter) were really interesting and enjoyable. Even the parts when we had to sit in the bus, driving through the magnificent landscape, were informative and very nice. Graham told us so many interesting stories, gave very much information about Scotland and its history - it was a real treat! THANK YOU, Graham! Since the weather was astonishingly good (sunny and warm) Graham also offered a special opportunity to take a 30 minutes walk along the Loch Lomond through the beautiful territory. This was in my eyes the best part of the whole journey. We thought we were somewhere at the Mediterranean Sea! Lovely! All in all we enjoyed this tour very much and look forward to coming back to Scotland soon!
Had a wonderful day trip to Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, and the whiskey distillery . Angela was a fantastic tour guide and driver. Would recommend this to anyone who loves Scottish history and countryside.
Euan A. was a fantastic guide - a great combination of humor, history, and trivia, along with a healthy dose of Scottish pride. Kudos to him!
This was a lovely tour with a fantastic guide. My family loved the castle and the distillery staff were great. Will recommend to friends
It was a good tour, our driver was really great and a good story teller !We were really disapointed by Stirling Castle (outside is nice but inside... empty and too modern)The lunch stop was pretty short (only 1h to order, get served, eat and go back to the bus) but we appreciated that we had the choice of the restaurant.Loch Lomond is okay (It was raining which is no help) but if you do not enjoy speed walks I would recommand you to do the short walk only.The distillery was interesting.The return point was different from the departure point and we did not get noticed, which we did not appreciate.
We had a wonderful time on this Full Day tour. Our guide was awesome! Stirling Castle, Trossachs National Park and finally Glengoyne Distillery were just brilliant! My Husband really enjoyed the nature walk too. We highly recommend this tour! When we return to Scotland; we will be using Viator again!
This tour was great .The guide Niall was brilliant from the start, Informative and funny and went out of his way to make sure we had a great day, which we did we highly reccomend. Ian and Lauren
We had an amazing time. Our tour guide was very funny and extraordinarily friendly. The small group nature of the tour really made this special.
The tour guide Paul was amazing. He had a great personality and was very sociable. His knowledge was immense and he presented it well. Best way to see the highlands.
Our driver Iain was delightful, enthusiasitic and full of little anecdotes as well as history to keep the day fully entertaining. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was nice being such a small group that allowed for some leisurely time to explore and take photos. The bGlencoyne distillery was a great, informative tour and we especially loved the breathtaking scenery at Stirling.
