A wonderful tour to Skye, slightly customized to suit our desires, very well executed with knowledgable and fun commentary along the way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alf, Thank you for your kind words and I am so pleased that you and the family had a good time. You won’t forget the Skye weather !!! I hope everything went well in Edinburgh and Hogmanay was a fun time. I raised my glass to you all at the Bells. Happy New Year to everyone and please pass on my regards. I hope or paths cross again. Haste ye back. Regards Jim

5 stars for promptness, knowledge, fun, personality, extras provided during the tour. By the end of our 10 hour day, we realised we could be friends! Taught us how to tell a proper "kilt" wearer!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alvin, Thank you for this great review. I hope you had a great holiday in Scotland and ditto regarding the friendship. As we say, in broad Scots of course, “Haste ye back”. Regards Jim

Jim was a spectacular guide, if really more of a host. We challenged him with a "do it our way" request and he was eager and willing...and successful. Learned a lot in a conversational style. Highly recommend. Will use Jim again. Cheers, Jim!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jay, Thank you for your kind words. They are really appreciated. I enjoyed my day with you guys and you were all friendly and good company. I hope your journey to Newcastle went well and that you enjoy your golf today. Safe journey home and say Hi to everyone. Regards Jim Ps I had a dram of the Glenmorangie last night. Very nice indeed.

Everyone in our group still talks about the great tour and time we had with Jim N. The tour was just what I was hoping for in a 3 hour walking tour of "Old Inverness". I can heartily recommend Jim N as a tour guide for the area and as an individual, he made it even better than expected. Great job! and we will see you again if we're ever in Inverness in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Helmut, Thank you for your kind words. It was honestly my pleasure taking you guys on a tour of Inverness. A beer and a chat sounds like a great idea. Regards Jim

My daughter and I were escorted in first class fashion by Mr. Jim. Easily a 5 out of 5 rating and more. Outstanding person of impeccable character, vast knowledge of every question we had, and provider of information of every village, Firth, loch, glen, distillery, and mountain range we saw. There would be no possible way to improve upon this gentleman, who I have invited to stay in my home in the US should he ever be in my area. I would choose him anytime I had the opportunity to do so again. Clint & Ali
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Clint/Ali, Thank you so much for this wonderful review. It was my pleasure touring with you both and I really enjoyed my day with you. I really do hope we meet again and your kind invitation is reciprocated. I will forward the documents as promised. I hope you have a safe journey home. Regards Jim

Our family of 4 took the Isle of Skye Tour with Jim, spending about 11 hours with him. Jim has extensive historical knowledge of Scotland's history and regions and told us great stories with his great accent throughout our day. Jim included our shy teenagers in all of the conversations and they had a great time too! One of our vacation's few rainy days, Skye was mystical and magical with mist gently moving over the basalt spires and waterfalls! Also time for food and potty breaks! Highly recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shelley, Thank you so much for your kind comments and wonderful review. They are very much appreciated. I am so delighted that you enjoyed Scotland and especially your day with me on Skye. It is a magical place and sometimes the mist and cloud makes it even more magical. It's a long day, but the 11 hours with the Boback family was a joy for me, so thank you for being such a nice family. Please pass on my kindest regards to Scott, Cole and Ella and also Laura who got us together. All the very best. Jim

My husband and I had the very best day in Scotland due to our guide Jim N. His knowledge of the area and Scottish history and culture made the day very special. He is by far the best guide we have ever had using tours by locals. You cannot go wrong letting him be your guide to this magical country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sherry and Tom, Thank you so much for this wonderful review. I am so glad you both enjoyed your day with me and I have to say that I also enjoyed your company. It was indeed a pleasure and I hope you both can make it back to the Highlands. As the saying goes, " Haste ye back". Kind Regards Jim
