    This tour was excellent! We absolutely loved our guide Alastair. He showed us the best spots for photos of Loch Ness and gave us some very interesting history of the area. We loved how small our group was and how much time we got at each stop. We only wish we would have booked a fully personalized day tour, which I highly recommend doing. Our last stop of the day was Great Glen Gin and It was delicious and since you cannot get it in the States we just had to buy a few bottles.

    Our guide, George, was wonderful! He arrived in Scottish kilt to make our journey even more special. What an abundance of knowledge he has of all things Scotland. We had George all to ourselves and he guided us through all the local places we wanted to see. The Outlander section was great. We took the Loch Ness boat to Urquhart Castle and thoroughly enjoyed walking through all the ruins. The 4000 yr old cemetery a Clava cairns was impressive. This tour is a must if you are in Inverness!

    Excellent tour! The guide, George, was extremely knowledgeable, fun and very friendly! My teenage daughters even had a great time learning of the folklore. Highly recommend to get a full lay of the area especially if only in Inverness for a short time.

    I've visited Inverness a few times and always ended up on a big bus tour. This tour, with George, was so much better than any of the other tours I have done in past. George was absolutely great with our group. He took the time to answer all of our questions, show us things we wanted to see, and he was fantastic with our kids. Highly recommend this tour and George. We will definitely be back, and will ask for George again!
