Great day trip. Excellent driver. Well worth a visit.

Excellent driver (Neil) very friendly and knowledgeable. Great day out, nice weather and locations were very scenic. Overall very well organised. Loch Ness and the Castle were great. Even had the excitement of a Coastguard training exercise (landing a man on our boat) on the boat journey back from Castle Urquhart.

An experience not to be missed.

It was an excellent package deal. However I personally was not impressed with the stop off to the stone burial ground. Instead of the tour guide saying, “the huge amount of stones here, represent how in ancient times it was how ones buried their dead.” What was actually said took up at least 30 minutes waffling on about stones. I stopped listening after 10 minutes and found it more interesting watching the grass grow.
