We did the Outlander tour with Hugh and 4 different tours with Ian and they all were excellent, informative and fun! Hugh is so interesting and his knowledge is endless. We got to meet the Earl of Cromartie, have tea at the Lallybroch look alike where Hugh showed us the weapons of the Highlanders,went to Cullen Battlefield and so many... More

The outlander tour was amazing! Hugh Allison is FULL of knowledge, about the book, the areas we visit and pass through and has a plethora of stories guaranteed to interest and entertain. We had lovely tour companions that ended up being more friends than strangers in the end. Just so pleased and am now re-re-reading the series and now, my... More

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in March 2014 with a magical trip to Scotland. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, take the Outlander tour. I am a big fan of the series and we booked the tour about six months in advance. We opened our reservation up to others that might want to join... More

We booked 2 days of whiskey tours, but quickly figured out that most of the distilleries are owned and operated by the big corporations and that we could sit at a bar and taste all the various whiskey. John - our guide helped us change our itineraries and he turned out to not only know more about Scottish history than... More

Spent a day in the enthralling company of Hugh, the walking Wikipedia of the Highlands! Initially we had booked the whisky tour but we decided to change to the Isle of Skye tour and were happy we did as this really gave us an impression of the vastness and eerie beauty of Scotland. Hugh is talkative, cheerful and has an... More

We recently travelled to Scotland as a family. The day spent with Ian was a highlight for the five of us including 3 teenage/young adults boys. There was something for everyone. Ian even gave us very good advice for the rest of our trip. We saw and learned more in that day than we could ever have on our own.... More

We booked this tour prior to heading out on our cruise. We wanted to go to Fort George and Cawdor Castle. It turned out to be so much more than we expected. We were met by Hugh at our cruise ship terminal right on time. We saw Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Fort Augustus as well as our original destinations. Hugh... More

My family spent a day with Hugh Allison on our port day in Inverness in July. My husband & I had been to Scotland before long ago but this was the first time for our kids, so I thought they would learn a lot. I have to say that nearly everything we heard that day was new to us, too,... More

My wife and I would highly recommend Inverness Tours. Ian was our primary guide and he was a fountain of knowledge on Scottish history, both natural and human. He made sure we remembered what we saw and learned through daily quizzes, along with rewards such as some excellent Scotch! It kept us on our toes and helped us understand and... More

We went on a private Outlander tour with Hugh Allison in August/14.. He is a gracious and knowledgeable guide, tailoring the tour to our interests as we went along. We are not typically "tour" people, as we normally travel and explore on our own. However, after reading reviews and being Diana Gabaldon fans, we took our chances with Hugh. It... More
