This was a lovely tour. We were a bit concerned how things would be with Covid but our tour guide Drew was great. He wore a mask and opened and closed all the doors so no contact touching. We all had masks on and there was a plastic divider from the drivers area so it felt very clean and safe. The tour to Isle of Skye is an all day extremely picturesque sightseeing type of tour. We stopped at Eilean Donan on the way there for some beautiful photos of the famous castle. Drew was very friendly and easy to talk to. If you want to see spectacular scenery in the Highlands, you will love this tour.

Last August, which is a bit ago, my husband and I took a Viking Ocean Cruise starting in Bergen, Norway and cruising around the UK and Ireland. We had a stop in Invergordon in the Highlands, however all of the shore excursions that I was interested in were booked. I was lucky to have found Happy Tours and we booked a private tour with Tony. He was a great tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed going out with him. I have to say, I was a bit hesitant about doing this but I am so glad I did. There is nothing like the personal touch and being able to see and do what you wanted. We went to Culloden Battlefield, Loch Ness, Beauly Priory, Clava Cairns and Glen Ord Distillery. I couldn’t have asked for more in the time that we were able to go while the ship was in port. I hope someday to be able to travel to Scotland again and not be under the same travel time constraints as we were on that day. What a beautiful country!

From first point of contact, I was impressed with the service and ability to accomodate my requests, nothing was a problem. I could not have asked for more from the tour. Our guide on the day, Bill was also exceptional. Full of information, full of life and passion for his country and history. Had a great day and one that I will never forget. Thankyou!

My cousin and I had a wonderful time on this tour and I would highly recommend it! Del was our tour guide (you cannot miss this true Highlander with the Scottish kilt!). Del gave us a great sense of the rich Scottish history throughout the day and was able to answer all of our questions. I look forward to coming back and taking another tour with Del and the Happy Tours gang!
