This is my first visit to beautiful Inverness. I joined a day tour to the see the Loch Ness, the castle and the Isle of Skye. Alison was our driver and tour guide. She is funny, careful, caring, knowledgeable and patient. On top of introducing us the places we visited, she prepared plenty of group activities (join upon your choice).... More

We have just returned from a two week vacation in England and Scotland and one of the highlights of our trip was the day that we spent with Laura Moon, dubiously dubbed "Laura the Explorer" by my adult children. We were a group of varied interests: history, nature and whiskey and Laura planned the perfect day with a little bit... More

Sounds like the perfect day tour! That's the beauty of a personal tour - if you mention something chances are we can find it. Even standing stones you didn't think you could see. Laura the Explorer - very good! More

Inverness Tours has a nice variety of day and overnight tours around the Highlands. I went on the Full Day Outlander tour with Hugh Allison. It could not have been a better day. I booked on a Share Tour (where someone else books the tour and then opens it up to allow others to fill the remaining seats). We had... More

Our family of 4 booked a tour with George Munro, a delightful, warm gentleman with a great sense of humor. We enjoyed listening to George talk about the history of the areas we drove through (we booked the Isle of Skye tour). He took us to some scenic outlooks by way of side roads which would only be known by... More

So glad your tour with our lovely George was a success for all the family. Skye is a big island to cover, so many excellent scenic and historical places so being in a small group tour is the best way to see it. More

We had an amazing time on our Outlander tour with the amazing Laura Moon (and a little stint with the equally amazing Ian)! We could have listened to Laura's awesome Glasgow accent forever! The tour was fun, interesting, and very detailed. It felt like going around with friends rather than an organized tour. I can't wait for my next trip... More

I highly recommend Inverness Tours for seeing the Scottish Highlands. My group tour with Hugh was the highlight of my time in Scotland. I was a solo traveler joining a group with the “share-a-tour” plan and I was nervous I would feel out of place. As it was, the group was made up of 3 solo travelers and 2 couples.... More

Laura Moon was one of the most entertaining, insightful, and accommodative tour guides we have ever experienced. After having car troubles early in the morning, she made sure to still include us later in the day and helped coordinate for us to meet up. Her knowledge of Outlander was superb, and she did a great job tying it into the... More

Inverness tours is without a doubt the best tour company that I have ever encountered. They are efficient, organized and just plain fun to travel with on a tour. We had two tours through them, one with Ian and one with Laura two very different but special guides. Ian is so easy to work with that we changed the later... More

One of the highlights of our 5 adults family trip to Scotland and London for Wimbledon was a tour we booked in Inverness Scotland through Inverness Tours.
