If you read the About section on our website, we do not need to give you any more information to make up your mind.

But in case you skipped that , just have a look at these two photos and think which one you identify yourself with. If you identified yourself with the goat, come along and join our trip.

If you identified yourself with the sheep, well…You are most welcome to try and see for once how it can be more enriching and fun to experience a country when you participate and lead instead of just following.

Looking for a personalised, informative and fun tour of the highlands and/or Edinburgh, Mad Goat is the way to go. We did a 2 days tour to Glen Coe, Oban and some distilleries and we got a whole lot more! Rafael is a history ninja! Full of fun facts and beautiful spots, I highly recommend a tour with Rafael. We also had our 15 years old son with us and it couldn't have been better. Thanks again for a rich couple of days seeing Scotland.

“O tour pela cidade de Edimburgo com o Rafael foi excelente. Diferente de todos os outros que já havia feito antigamente, o Rafael sempre se certifica que ele só vai te levar para os lugares que você mais tem interesse - é impressionante o quanto ele sabe sobre cada área da cidade e a quantidade de coisa que eu aprendi em um tour de apenas 3 horas. Aprendi um monte sobre a história da cidade e também sobre algumas coisas que poucos outros guias tem conhecimento: os pubs temáticos da cidade, a estátua secreta de Sherlock Holmes, a história de Robert Louis Stevenson (autor famoso que baseou suas obras em Edimburgo), e diversas outras coisas. Acima de tudo, o Rafael é uma grande pessoa, carismática e com muito reconhecimento. Recomendadíssimo!"
