We got married at Urquhart Castle on 1st July 2015. From the moment I made enquiries about a private cruise I was impressed with the friendliness & helpfulness that Lenora gave, providing knowledge on the local area & ensuring she catered to our needs. On the day before our wedding we visited the office & again were provided with an... More

George drives the bus & boat & is also the guide on the boat trip. He is a local & a wealth of knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise & recommend the Nessy Hunter for anyone wanting to cruise the Loch Ness

George was very friendly and a great tour guide -- there were only 3 other people on our cruise, so we basically had our own private tour of the Loch. Our kids loved the views and the weather was perfect. We booked the day before right by Nessieland, and would highly recommend George!

we booked in advance after reading the reviews and it didn't disappoint. I can imagine it must be very monotonous for them doing the same cruise every hour. Our captain was very informative with lots of facts about the loch, we did giggle as he sounded a lot like Sean Connery! We sat on the top deck with a great... More

Stopped for lunch in Loch Ness and decided to take the Loch Ness cruise before continuing on to Dornoch. It was a lovely and informative cruise. A prefect break in our drive.

We chose the Nessie hunter for our Loch Ness cruise due to what we read in many different flyers and I'm glad to say we not only got everything we expected but so much more from booking the cruise with lenora in the shop to cruising the loch with George sharing his knowledge and experience was a fantastic experience and...

We took a cruise with George last week. Very much enjoyed his commentary, you could tell he is very knowledgeable about Loch Ness and local legends. He picked us up at Nessieland, a few yards down the road from the Loch Ness Experience. He then took us over to his boat in a minibus. The boat is very nice, there... More

My recent wife (at the time October 2008) honeymooned in Scotland and went on the cruise with George Edwards himself; namesake of the deepest part of the Loch. It was an absolute hoot! Beautiful scenery, personable staff, and George Edwards was awesome and informative. It was like being informed about the Loch by Sean Connery. The day before we left... More

Took the boat tour on a small boat that is used for Lock Ness exploring. The time we went was about 3 PM. The captain said it was the best weather tour of the day. We were on the water over an hour. The captain was very informative about the Lock and the history. Got great scenery pictures. This was... More
