review 2 Jun 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The sea and land safaris and the Tobermory hotel were all memorable for different reasons, but the one that ran through all of them was the excellent level of customer service.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Sea safari - Make sure you are waterproof and wind / cold proof head to foot, even if it seems OK when you leave port things can change in the blink of aneye, so carry gear for ALL weathers. Same advice for land safari, but conditions shouldn't be so potentially severe

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, to a degree. It is nice to be able to help the locals by spending some money through their businesses, and all the companies were eco aware.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We found the friendliness and level of customer service from all involved to be outstanding. A genuine ten out of ten.

review 20 May 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Seeing a sea eagle for the first time. Also the train journey from Glasgow to Oban

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go with a travel buddy, in order to save on overall costs and to have a backup if your phone stops working the day before you leave (as mine did, so no photos unfortunately).

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I wish I could have shared it with someone, or failing that had more opportunity to get to know fellow travellers. Why are there so few organised groups holidays for that part of Scotland in May?

review 3 Sep 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The scenery was absolutely stunning even if the weather wasn't great but that's the risk with going to Scotland any time of year.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack for all weathers

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes as I stayed in local accommodation and used the local tour guides to go to the best places for wildlife spotting.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very enjoyable and well organised. The Sealife Survey trip out to sea was cut short due to it being too windy but a refund was given very quickly. All tour guides were helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately wildlife is unpredictable as is the weather but would definitely go back to try and see the stuff I missed this time around.

review 13 Aug 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It was all very enjoyable - the Discover Mull excursion was a particular highlight, when we saw golden eagles flying - among a ton of other wildlife!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take sea-sickness tablets if you go on an all-day boat trip (it can get quite choppy), and insect repellent for the evenings.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Supported local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant.
