We have been on many of these buses around Europe and this inverness tour certainly wasn't the worst as many people have said.
We went on the red route as the blue route wasn't running, the red route cost £10 each, the drivers were lovely and the bus was always on time.
It takes you around the many sights of Inverness like the botanic Gardens, ness islands, the jacobite cruises and cathedral. The commentary was very good compared to others we have been on and was worth the money.

Well, it's a small city after all. 7 stops, one is the bus station, another is a restaurant where you can also take a boat tour. That stop is a few miles down the A82. Even on a glorious day, at 55mph it's a bit of a struggle. The city really isnt big enough to offer a decent tour, so we got off, feeling we hadn't really accomplished or learnt that much. Watch out for low hanging branches too. No warning, just a whack on the chops. (No extra charge though !!). Wouldnt really recommend. However, The bike tour was far, far more interesting and fun. The tour guide Alsion was excellent.

Inverness is a small city so not much to take in. I found the tour useful as it meant I could do a boat trip around Loch Ness and visit Culloden. A bit difficult to hear at times due to the wind- in particular watch out for the drive down to Dochgarroch- pretty windy!

Really disappointed with the hop-on and hop-off red route. I went on this bus expecting to visit Lochness, instead it dropped you off at a cafe where you could buy boat tickets for £26 to go on the Loch. The rest of the bus tour was just driving round the city pointing out an old hotel, Turkish restaurant and a care home. It was definitely not worth £10, you’ll see way more of the city walking round in an hour. If you want to see Lochness using public transport get the 919 bus.

Bought tickets for both tours at discount cost of £28 for 2 . We took the Red tour first as the door was broken on Blue tour bus . We had a quick drive around past castle, river , sports centre & botanical gardens on to the A82 ! To Dochgarroch lock (okay if you want a trip on canal ) then back to bus station . Not worth the money very little culture seen . Have decided not to take blue route tomorrow as only 4 stops ! Usually city tours are a good way to get to know more about buildings etc . I would not recommend this as value for money

Would not recommend if using this to get to and from the jacobite tour. It advertises that they provide this service but we got off the boat and the bus pulled away with no one on it while ten people are chasing after it.

The boat came back a few minutes late, but you would think the bus driver would wait when he sees people walking towards the bus. It was last one so we ended up being stuck.

Very disappointing and pay extra to get a taxi (although not really cheap to do this bus)

Don’t bother. Have done many of these tours, this one by far the worst. The range of exciting must see a tops include ‘premier inn’ and ‘opposite currys’.

To make things worse the open top was substituted for a regular single decker bus, which was like a sauna during the warm weather over the jubilee weekend.

We intended doing the dolphin boat trip but the driver told us that two buses had booked and we would not obtain a seat. We might have had a walk round the sight, but he cut the journey short, returning the way we came. An elderly lady had booked the dolphin trip, but as he didn't take us there she missed it. He told her she did not press the bell, but he didn't take us there to allow her to get off.

We don't understand the negative reviews. This is an inexpensive way to spend an hour having an informative drive around Inverness. We had a super driver, Kyle, who was so personable. The whole experience was well worth doing.

Really loved this tour! Not sure why there’s so many negative reviews? £10 for 24 hours- absolutely worth it. Inverness is a small place so there’s not going to be lots to see like other places but the sights are lovely including the castle, lochs and cathedral. Great way to get around town! Worth it.
