Our driver, Graham was waiting for us outside the hotel at 9 am. Our tour lasted 5 hours - visiting the places we were most interested in with a few suggestions from him thrown in. He gave us lots of interesting information and history of the places so made the whole thing a lovely experience. We would have liked to... More

My friends and I took a private tour with Graham to the Isle of Skye. It was in January, not exactly the most ideal time to see the sights, but he knew exactly where to take us and what we could see. We had a wonderful time. He was very knowledgable and friendly and would change the tour around however... More

My son had always wanted to visited Scotland thinking he was Scottish with his name also being Cameron and when we were collected by our friendly Scotsman Cameron this... More

I did this tour with Cameron the tour guide and another lady from Oregon. It was the best tour I have done, it was filled with continuous laughter and beautiful sights, as well as some pretty nice whisky! Cameron 'the Man in the kilt' is a fantastic guide who is great for a laugh and is very knowledgable about the... More

Rented a bike for 2 days and always returned it late. There was never a problem, just give them a call and someone will come to the shop. Very helpful owners. They know the area so they can advise you about routes. Helmet and lock are provided. Prices for hire are really good. For a bit lazier people they offer... More

The super nice bicycle mechanic at Happy Go Bicycle Hire was impressive - to say the least. My boyfriend and I were on an extended bicycle tour, and I found myself with a chain that was popping off due to missing bolts in my chain ring. The very talented mechanic stopped what he was working on and took the time... More

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

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
