Absolutely, hands down, the best tour my family and I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Hugh Allison is an amazingly knowledgeable guide with loads of personality. His love of Scotland, History, Culloden, the ancients and Outlander is obvious and he is eager to share with all. I was worried the non Outlander fans in my family would be... More

As a long standing Outlander fan, Inverness Day Tours 'Outlander Day Tour' was a must on my itinerary when I decided to plan a trip to Scotland for myself. My expectations were already very high given all the positive reviews of Inverness Day Tours, but I am not exaggerating when I say that my tour with Laura exceeded anything I... More

We just got home from our best trip ever. If you find yourself going to Scotland deffinatley look up Inverness tours. We did a 3day outlander tour with Hugh and it was awesome. Hugh is what we called the book of knowledge by the time we were done. He made our trip unforgetful. Cannot not pin point one thing that... More

Wow! What a history lesson. I came over to Scotland with a friend for her brothers wedding and we decided to do the Outlander Tour. That was the best decision. I had actually looked at several different tour groups and settled on this one because of the reviews and the guides knowledge. So glad we did. Hugh brought everything to... More

Three of us spent a day with Ian last summer on the Outlander Tour. The tour was very interesting, Ian has an exceptional knowledge of the history of the area and has quite a sense of humor. We visited Culloden which was my favorite as well as many other sites of the Outlander book. Even if you aren't a fan... More

Laura took our group of seven (ages 8 to 67) on a wonderful day trip to Skye with stops at a few castles along the way. Laura was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw along the way and made the ride itself a delight. The highland coos were a special treat for the kids. We could not ask for... More

Hugh was an excellent tour guide. The whisky tours are self contained and ran by distillery staff but Hugh kept the drive out to the distillery interesting. He pointed out various landmarks and other scotch companies along the way to our destination. He also helped us figure out some of our undecided travel plans and gave great advice on what... More

Ian Deveney, our amazing tour guide for this all-day event, took us to highlights of the Outlander story: the Clava cairns, Culloden, a representation of Lollybroch - even took us to a whiskey factory. He is very knowledgeable about the area as well as of Diana Gabaldon's story and the history and time set by the novel. It gave us... More

I joined some friends on a Scottish adventure summer. They did the planning and their itinerary included an Inverness Tour excursion, one of the "Outlander" tours. (I was an Outlander novice but found that I did not need expertise in that area to enjoy all sites to the fullest.) I'll state upfront that I am a history buff and have... More

It was a great trip. Ian is a great guide, a born storyteller. I traveled solo and joined a couple who booked the trip, and you never know what to expect, but the company was good and I enjoyed Outlander tour with Inverness Tours very much.
