Our group from the US enjoyed the two day trip to Inverness and Loch Ness. Cullam did a great job of keeping things moving and entertaining. Thanks Cullam! Only thing I wish there was more time in Fort Augustus. Would have been a good place for a late lunch or a pint. The bed and breakfast was great. I recommend you make a dinner reservation for Inverness as it was hard to find food without one.

Beautiful experience! Our guide, James, was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He accompanied us excellently on our short tour of the Highlands. The tour was well organized and we saw spectacular places, unfortunately we had to skip a stage (Fort William) due to heavy traffic which heavily affected the schedule. I appreciated that the possibility of skipping the stage was discussed and agreed with the whole group.

The stories told by tour guide were quite dry. There should be another person telling the stories because it seemed that driver was focused too much on driving (understandable), and his stories were boring. The second day of the trip - first two stops were not interesting; the ancient tombs and ruins of one building.
