My husband and I took this quick trip in December. We were not given the tour vouchers and did not have our accommodation details until the morning of the tour. However, we trusted Viator since we have joined other tours before in various cities.
The tour was well-organised from London Kings Cross Station to Edinburgh and Loch Ness. The first class coach was worth the extra, since it was a very early trip to Edinburgh and late return to London. We were pleasantly surprised that the quoted B and B was Hilton hotel in a central location in Edinburgh. The hotel was a short walk to Waverley Station, Christmas Markets , the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle.
Going up to Loch Ness the view was magical .. the bends and loch were all covered with snow. Our lady tour bus driver and tour guide, Katryn was excellent considering we were going up the Highlands in snowy winter weather. Being a local from Edinburgh, she was very proud of her heritage and managed to give us a good history and interesting folklores of the Scottish Highlands. The Loch Ness cruise was optional but it was an interesting experience to go through the deep black waters with humorous local guides .Unfortunately, Nessie must be frozen under the lake .
Thank you Viator for another exceptional experience!

The person that arranged our rail trip did not give us accurate or adequate information regarding how to get to our hotel from the train station. We had upgraded our train trip to first class to make sure we had a reserved seat and had that on the trip to Edinburgh but they had not arranged for reserved seat on the way back so we ended up having to jockey for an available seat. It was really an uncomfortable situation. Accommodations were nothing special but comfortable and adequate.
The best part of the trip was our trip to the Highlands - our guide was Duncan and he did a very good job pointing out highlights and also letting us rest it was a long trip. The rest of the trip you are on your own and it was nice to be in control of where and when you wanted to go.

What a wonderful experience. Edinburgh is a fantastic place - so much history. The Highlands are absolutely beautiful and the boat ride on Loch Ness was so much fun.

It was a good compact trip. I suppose three days and two nights is not really enough to visit any place but it sure was a good introduction to Edinburgh. I wish though that there was more information on the distance of the hotel from the train station, especially for travelers who have difficulty in walking.

We have joined a good number of package tour but this is the best one we have even joined. Everything about it is grea - the comfort of the bus for the long ride, the stops and the pack lunch, too. t. We especially appreciated the Loch Ness and the Highlands leg of the tour. The tour leader Caitlin is the best!!! Her enthusiasm for her work is was very infectious!!! She can energize the whole bus!!! She is the best tour leader we have ever had! Her lectureson Highlands History was a very great eye-opener for me and my husband. The rail trip from London to Edinburgh was also good. The extra we paid for first class seats was worth it.
