We had Cameron (the head of Happy Tours) as our guide, for a custom day trip out of Inverness. He was happy to help us customize our trip. First, Cameron is absolutely hilarious; we had our daughter with us, and while she started a bit grumpy, she loved bantering with him, and had a blast as did we all. Cameron... More

Being able to visit the MacBean Memorial was the highlight of our UK tour. We set up a morning of touring around the Loch Ness area, where the memorial is located Our guide, John MacGillivray...

John was so knowledgeable and shared so much during our tour. I highly suggest buying a ticket to explore the Museum at the Battle of Culloden. It really helps put into perspective what happened on the field. Looks of learning & laughing. Well worth the money!

We had a fantastic day with Andrea. Her knowledge of history and the sites was phenomenal, and she was so kind and welcoming to our family and my two children. She made the day fun and interesting! The tour was definitely a highlight of our trip.

Thank you so much John! The Isle of Skye Tour was amazing. A small group of 8 made it very intimate and very comfortable. We got to know the people and enjoyed everyone's company. John was informative, funny and made everything come alive. Both my sister and I will never forget the sites. Everything was breathtaking but my favourite part... More

Our guide, Kevin, was absolutely wonderful as was Cameron who arranged the tour. They were prompt, friendly, and they know the in's and out's of the area and Kevin took us to several spots that we would not have known about were it not for his local knowledge and kindness. The tour is not cheap, but when one considers what... More

The Isle of Skye was amazing and driving ourselves would not have been a good idea. Saw far more on the tour.
