This is a great way to get around the city, if your a first time visitor, as we were. Good to combine with the Jacobite Loch Ness tour. Recommended

We found this to be a fun way to scope out the city. The hidden perk is that the bus stops out at one of the Loch Ness embarkation points (run by the same company). We unknowingly bought a 4 hour tour on Loch Ness...More

This sightseeing trip filled an hour and gave us some history of the buildings and places it passed. The half-open top deck gives good views and the recorded narrative was interesting and informative. We could have done without the intrusive, twee Scottish songs that were...More

The tour itself was not very interesting. It did make it easy for us to get to our Jacobite Cruise dock for our Loch Ness cruise, but had stopped running before we got back. Save your money and just take the local bus.
