Have recently returned from an "Outlander tour" and cannot stop raving about how much I enjoyed it. Hugh Allison is a passionate historian, perfect tour guide and a gifted story-teller. Outllander fans would not be disappointed by how Hugh brings the landscape of the books to life but he also does so much more. His extensive knowledge of Scottish History... More

Hugh Allison could not have made our tour any better. We chose the A01ii tour and I would recommend this to anyone that wants to see the true area around the Highlands as well as a few key landmarks (Loch Ness, Glen Affric, Clava Cairns and Culloden Battlefield) My husband and I were very impressed and pleased with the amount...

Once our business trip was done in Dundee, we retreated to the Highlands of Scotland to get a bit of leisurely time in. We really wanted to see a bit of the highlands, but hadn't made set plans and weren't even sure exactly what to see (there's SO much!). Inverness Tours was able to accommodate our last minute request for... More

The Outlander experience tour with Ian as our tour guide was fantastic. He did such a great job my husband enjoyed the tour and he didn't read the books. Ian was knowledgeable about the Scottish history and OutLander series to keep both my husband and I informed. So much to see not enough time for us to book a longer... More

We had a lovely Highlands tour with George! He is very knowledgeable about the area. The highlight of the tour was Eilean Donan Castle. On our journey we stopped at many picturesque locations for photo opportunities - it was a wonderful trip with so many good things to see!

We took a half day tour of Inverness and a full day tour of the surrounding area. Hugh was our guide and he was amazing. His knowledge of the area and gift for storytelling provided us with an experience we will never forget. We will definitely use Inverness Tours when we visit again.

I did the Outlander tour on Sun 23rd Nov, and then the Eilean Donan/Skye Tour on Mon 24th, both with Hugh Allison. I was traveling on my own, so I opened up my tour date to share-a-tour, and was finally joined by one other companion, Judi. She eventually joined for both tours, and not only did we share a tour,...

Scotland has been my dream trip for several years. As an Outlander book fan, I had heard through Facebook recommendations (and also from the book author Herself) that Inverness Tours was the way to go. When I first booked the air tickets for my 2-week Scotland holiday, my next step was booking Hugh Allison as my guide. I quite literally... More
