Subject: Dont Stop Believin
I took the two-day tour with an overnight in Inverness with my 11 year-old child. Being of Scottish descent and having spent my whole life hearing about Scotland, my expectations were very high for the tour, but I was still wowed. From a logistical standpoint, everything went extremely smoothly and there were zero glitches. Our tour guides, Duncan and Ross, were so much fun to travel with. Duncans stories were epic, hilarious, and informative, and really provided context to all we were seeing. Add relevant (and sometimes irreverently irrelevant!) music in, and youve got more than just a tour. If you should happen to see this, Duncan, you really ought to consider writing a book or creating your own podcast, or maybe even making a film of all these great stories. The telling is everything, and youve got real talent. Ross driving was outstanding, safe, and steady, and we appreciated that he played the bagpipes for us during one of the stops. I loved the democratic feel of the trip: we were given options to decide upon as a group as the days proceeded and this gave us a bit of sense of ownership of our experiences. There were also some fun surprises and sites we were not expecting to see along the way--all were great. Lucky for me, this included an impromptu drop-off at my familys clan museum along the way, which had me in tears, and truly made the trip unforgettable for me and my daughter. Our accommodations in Inverness at the Dalmore Guest House were outstanding Ive literally never seen a cleaner room in my life, nor had a more lovely person welcome us and cook our breakfast (Molly, the best). My only complaint is that the tour had to end. When I asked my daughter what her favorite thing about the trip was, I expected her to respond with the name of an attraction or a treat we ate along the way, but her answer was: All the stories Duncan told. Remember, this is from an 11 year-old with a short attention span and a sweet tooth--the stories won out over the fudge shop in Fort William, the ice cream in Pitlochry, and the cupcakes at Loch Morlich, not to mention searching for Nessie and seeing Inverness Castle (after having just performed in Macbeth at school). I doubt youd find a better experience or better deal to be had from any other tour company in Edinburgh. Thanks a million, Rabbies, you definitely know what youre doing!
