What people are saying about Inverness
Our guide, Michael, was fantastic. Genuinely nice guy with an obvious love for his country and the Isle of Skye. He was informative throughout and encouraged questions The trip itself is very good. There are enough stops along the way to stop you being bored on the mini bus, though at some spots you aren’t there long enough. It’s understandable, though, considering how many places we visited. Being in Inverness for a few days, this was a perfect way to get out and see the scenery, with a couple of castles, and of course the Fairy Pools. They were rather busy for our visit, but nothing you. And I about that! Popular place. I’d just say I wish we had longer at each stop. I would have rather been able to stay longer the the pools, distillery, and Portree than stop off for the smaller castle photo opportunities. But that’s just me. Overall, had a great day!
I am not normally a fan of tours but this one was great, with a very interesting and entertaining commentary from the coach driver, and interesting history and local information commentary on the boat. There was heavy traffic in Inverness the day I booked, meaning that the bus arrived / left late and we missed our timed boat. We were given two options for how we wanted to do the tour (2 hour cruise, or cruise and visit the castle) and everyone’s choices were accommodated, we just arrived back in Inverness later than originally planned. We were also given complimentary snacks on the cruise because of the delay. The castle is beautiful and the cruise really worth doing as you find out more about Loch Ness.
This tour was really good due to the tour guide, Michael was very knowledgeable on the history in the area and of Scotland in general. The only drawback for me was I would have liked to have heard some traditional music in the background during the drive.....the weather was not cooperative for the tour so no fairy pools but all of the stops were really great and Michael definitely tried to get us some ad on photo opportunities at other historic landmarks because of the weather so that was very thoughtful! Thanks Michael for a great day out in the highlands!
This was probably the best tour I ever went on. Our guide, Michael, was very professional and friendly. I was amazed with the amount of knowledge he had concerning the Highlands and the attractions. The van was flawless and very comfortable. The weather was not on our side and most of the time there was intense rain, but that did not ruin the experience. Due to the rain it was not possible to visit the Fairy Pools, but Michael made it his mission to adapt the route so that we could still enjoy the views. Absolutely amazing experience - 10/10 reccomended
Everything went well, Busdriver has been very welcoming, friendly informative and funny , ship crew just the same and the Hot chocolate with Whiskey soooo good . I have been at Urquart castle before but to see it from the Loch has been just amazing and I think we had enough time to walk around ( 55min) . all in all it has been a great tour and even my son (10years) enjoyed every minute ! Thanks to everyone involved, I would highly recommend it !
