There is such a market for a great tour in Inverness. Beautiful city, great river, and wonderful history. I have taken two tours of the "city" several years a part. Neither were stellar. Not much information or stories given. If someone decided to do a great tour here, they could rake in the dough!! I have done many tours all... More

Booked this tour as a local for my sons birthday to try something different & thoroughly enjoyed it! The staff were all friendly and really made my boys feel special, the local chocolates/cakes and coffee were delicious and a great time was had by all, there were rather a lot of us! Would recommend to visitors to the area wishing... More

My son and I joined Cameron on the Crimes and Punishment Tour last night and we found it most educational. Cameron is a great guide. Make the Happy Tours a priority if you are visiting Inverness.:)

Emailed Cameron (Best Western Palace Hotel (nice place, great castle view) recommended him) about a week before we arrived in Inverness. Cameron was great at getting back to me, the price seemed right for his private tour of the highlights of the Isle of Skye. He arranged for Duncan to pick us up at our hotel first thing after breakfast.... More

Cameron is a horse of a different color with a colorful,(albeit short BUT Inverness city is not very big) personality, LOTS of humor and tells the stories well. He also has lots of connections to set up different tours. We went through him to hire a private guide/taxi for the day and he found us the perfect person. Absolutely recommend... More

Rented a mountain bike out to explore the trails around lochness. The bike was great and both the bike mechanic and the guy who ran happy tours were both friendly. The trails were a lot of fun and they give a trail map to give you some options.

We rented power assisted bikes for the 18 mi. round trip. Cameron instructed us on the route (after giving us an entertaining commentary on our way to the bike garage) and sent us on our way through the countryside and back along the river. We had a great day!

I've been on many walking tours and have never felt that I was being personally attacked just simply because of where I was from - until this tour. There were only 3 of us (we were together) and then another lady joined us mid way through the tour. He is lucky we showed up or he would not have made... More

I am sorry that you felt as you did about the tour. I can assure you there was no intention to offend you about guns in Texas. I answered your questions about my personal life and the previous tour operator as we walked at chatted. I can only again apologise if you felt you did not enjoy the tour More

We recently did the "Crime & Punishment" tour with Cameron. Most informative, enlightening and entertaining. We always find history interesting, but with Cameron it was that and so much more. If we ever get back to Inverness, we will be looking to do another tour with Cameron.

My husband and I took the walking tour and found it to be informative, historically accurate and light-hearted. Cameron was able to make history interesting for a wide and varied group. He incises you to want to learn more about the topics he touches on. As the tour is only just over an hour and it would be impossible to... More
