Well Planned and great guide
Just returned from an amazing trip to Scotland. Our tour was originally scheduled with another tour company, but due to some unexpected health issues with the driver of that tour, our itinerary was handed over to Stravaigin. This was a bit last minute, so we were not sure how things would turn out. However, we were put in the highly capable hands of our driver and tour guide George and he was phenomenal! There were 13 of us in our group and we varied in age and interests. We had a pretty aggressive itinerary and George was so great about making strategic recommendations to make sure our trip was both fun and efficient. During our 10 day tour we traveled up the North Coast 500, up to the Orkney Islands, and several Outlander filming locations. As a local, George was very knowledgeable and engaging and made sure to share facts and stories about the locations we visited as well as the Scottish culture. George loved surprising us with some off-the-beaten-track locations and cultural experiences that he was able to squeeze in that were not even part of our itinerary. I think a lot of those little surprises ended up being our favorite locations! Our bus was filled with giggles and laughter and we all loved listening to George's stories, lies and nonsense :) I don't think I have laughed that hard in ages. The bus was very comfortable, clean, and roomy and it was nice to have Wifi when it was available to upload pictures from the trip and keep connected with my family. I fell in love with the word Stravaigin once I knew its meaning and plan on incorporating that into a tattoo soon! If you are looking for a wonderful guided experience in Scotland, choose Stravaigin. I will be back and that is the only tour company I will use :) More...
We just finished our tour with David in the Highlands. We are leaving Scotland with a much higher respect and knowledge of such a wonderful place. David took us to many places that we could have never imagine just visiting without him. He went the extra mile to tell the tale ,stories & history of his county. He truly loves what he does and making sure we are enjoying every minute. Places off the beaten path that only locals would know about. David is incredibly organized and very prompt. Could not ask for a happier vacation. Thumbs up for the best vacation and tour guide. See you again David for a tour of the islands. More...

Just back from a group 10 day trip to Scotland planned expertly by Carol at Stravaigin Tours. Our guide was George who was beyond a doubt the best guide I have experienced in my 30 years in the travel business. His knowledge about the country he loves is astounding - always profesional, fun, always there with us off the bus on EVERY excursion to answer all of our repeated questions - he went over and above what I and our group expected - Hope he reads this so he can again know how much we appreciated how he went over and above all the time. The hotels and B&B's were just wonderful all along - we had comfort at night and hiking and exploring during the day - wish I was still there in beautiful Scotland!

Ian was amazing. My family had him for a full week custom tour all the way to the Orkneys. He was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and when he says "custom itinerary" he means it. He took us to all kinds of off-the-beaten-path sites and museums we asked for. Thanks Ian! More...
I have used Ian and his team many times over the last few years and I have never been disappointed in the service, timekeeping, professionalism, price or banter of the drivers! Stravaigin is my first port of call anytime I'm looking for transport! More...
We used Stravaigin yesterday for a family 60th and the service was exceptional! Bus was amazing booking was really easy, any queries were answered quickly and the driver was very helpful! Will definitely use again and will be recommending More...
We just completed a tour of the Scottish Highlands with Derek. We had a wonderful time. Derek was professional, knowledgeable, and fun! !! We had a wonderful time. We all would recommend Stravaigin for any tour needs in Scotland! More...

Thanks so much for a wonderful Outlander tour, George Campbell! We are a group of family and friends from all over the USA and one lovely Canadian visiting Scotland for the first time. We all love to travel and enjoy ourselves in the process. You educated and entertained us all around the Outlander locations to suit our enthusiasts as well as those only mildly interested. We had some inclement weather, but your lively stories and sunny personality saved the day! We all had a wonderful time and credit you for a fantastic day of touring! Thanks again from Jan, Lise, Pat, David & Kathy and Wendy. More...

We had a most amazing 9 day tour of Skye, the Highlands, Orkney, and Shetland. Derek was a fabulous guide--always looking to do special things that he knew would make our trip even more memorable. This was our third trip with Stravaigin and Carol has been most helpful planning and working with us to put together an itinerary that hits our "must see" spots and recommending points of interest as well. Can't say enough about how great our trip was and how much we like Stravaigin Scotland. More...
It will take a couple of days for it all to sink in.... But we just finished up a wonderful vacation, half in Scotland and half in Ireland. Steve was an awesome Guide all over Scotland and my family couldn't be more pleased. More...
Derek was the best person to give us the most amazing experience in Scotland
As a young group of students operating on a low budget, we had the distinct pleasure of being allowed to traverse the highlands with Stravaigin. Along the way we encountered 11 rainbows, stopped at Loch Lomond, popped into St. Conan's Church and passed by an absurd amount of castles, highland coos and awe-inspiring landscapes. Our guide, Derek, built up the enchantment thanks to his engaging, humorous and trivia-ridden tour style. All in all, a real treat for any traveler. More...
I had a great time with Stravaigin Scotland this weekend. The tour guides are awesome, and really well-informed. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
I went on a guided tour with Straivaigin yesterday with a group of friends and I had such a wonderful time! The tour itself was very well planned and incorporated a lot of interesting sights and places. However by far the best part of the trip were the tour guides who were exceptionally funny, kind and well-informed. Would definitely recommend! More...
Had a lovely tour today with Stravaigin Scotland! Went on a full day trip to Loch Lomond, Luss and around. Friendly, funny and professional guides. Would recommend to any student/family/event! More...

We booked a 1 day private Outlander tour. Our guide Ian was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the local history of the sites we visited. Ian accommodated our schedule and time preferences. The Mercedes coach was well appointed and had complimentary WiFi. I would definitely choose Stravairgin Touring again! More...
Derek was great! The tour was fabulous from beginning to end .
Excellent mercedes mini coach. Has leather armchairs, Wifi, and a mini bar. really professional service from booking to on the day with the driver.
Our members were very happy with the service given, the driver was very helpful and pleasant. The coach was great, clean and the temperature in the coach was also at a comfortable level. The booking system in hiring the coach was very good More...
We booked a mini bus for 8 people to take us to Glasgow Airport and collect us a week later. We had great service from the company, right from the beginning when arranging the booking the emails were prompt and booking was very professional. Communication with the company continued to be excellent throughout, with details of who our drivers were going to be and their contact numbers beforehand. Our first driver came promptly at 1.30am which we really appreciated as it was such an early start, and our second driver on the way home was also on time, meeting us at the airport and helping us with our luggage & a very pleasant chap! Thank you, we will definitely be using this company again. More...
