I hardly like trips where we go with a ready made tour, but this was the best one in my life for such tours. No waste time, fully time packed, amazing guide, great entertainment by him, very lovely travellers.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
This reviewer, who cowardly hides under the name " No need to lie " is in fact a LIAR ! The tour stopped in Oban for 95 minutes not 20 minutes ! The only 20 minute stop was beside Loch Lomond( Tarbet ) on the way to Oban, but we also stopped at Loch Lomond on the way back for 30 minutes ( Luss ). so 50 minutes in total beside Loch Lomond. There was a 65 minute stop at Inverary with the OPTION of going into the castle, or town. If passengers bring their own lunch then there is no need to spend money at any of the stops. This reviewer comes across as a cowardly, nasty, vindictive and dishonest character who is EASILY BORED. Trip advisor is supposed to be about posting reviews that are helpful to other travelers, this review is completely useless to other travelers. Saying "This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC" does not absolve Trip advisor of printing lies. Trip advisor should never publish the name of a guide as the negative reviews are often dishonest, spiteful, abusive and useless to fellow travelers and the positive reviews are often fake.
