Gordon picked us up early in the morning at our B&B to begin our adventure. First stop was Culloden where we walked the battlefield as Gordon recreated this epic battle between the Jacobites and the English Next we were off to the mysterious prehistoric stone circles that remind one of Stonehenge with 12 multicolored rocks placed around the cairns. Cawdor... More

This was absolutely a memorable experience from beginning to end. We attended as two couples and were unsure of how the experience would go. No one ever likes to take a tour with a tour guide who is a complete know-it-all but you don't want a guide who doesn't know what they're doing either. Gordon was amazing! He made the... More

We booked WOW Scotland for a tour on our cruise stop in Invergordon. Gordon Pearson was very informative in all of his correspondence to us before our tour, and we knew exactly where to find him when we got off our ship. When we boarded the coach, we found a sack of snacks for each of us, which was a... More

We booked a day tour to Applecross, started in a gloomy morning as the weather wasn't that good. However, we were lucky enough to have a passionate and energetic tour guide, Sandy, who chased the sunshine for us so to catch a fantastic photo at the spectacular landscape. We had a relaxing tour, and Sandy obviously knew when to stop... More

We arranged a private tour of the Highlands during our short cruise stop in the Inverness area. Sandy, our guide, met us port side and showed us a fascinating day, visiting Beauly Priory, a short photo stop of Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness, Inverness Cathedral, the government buildings of Inverness, the Culloden Battlefield where we were fortunate to see the...

We arrived in Invergordon by cruise ship and smartly chose this company rather than a cruise shore excursion. We opted for the Classic Highland Shore Excursion and it truly exceeded our expectations! Let me start by saying we have visited Invergordon by cruise ship before, and had taken a private all-day tour with a different company during our 2009 visit.... More

We have recently returned from a cruise on Ruby Princess and I searched online for tours from Invergordon. We were so pleased we picked this one as we had a wonderful day with Gordon and his driver John. Gordon met us just outside the cruise terminal and then took us to Inverness where we spent an hour. He took us... More

Wow Scotland and our tour guide Gordon & wife Kay provided us with a perfect cruise excursion from Invergordon...even had goodie bags with snacks & water waiting for us on the bus. We visited Loch Ness, Culloden Battelfield, Clava Cairns, Cawdor Castle and Inverness and Gordon was the best guide we had on our 12 day Princess cruise. Highly recommend!
