Be charmed and educated in Inverness!

My husband and I were fortunate to be introduced to Inverness on our first full day by Christine. Her knowledge of Inverness and Scotland’s history is deep and broad, and she brought it to life as we walked to the various sites in this charming small city.

A wonderful walking tour!

Our guide, Simon, was very knowledgeable about Inverness, quite engaging! At first we thought we could walk around and see the sights on our own, but don’t do that! You will be missing a great deal. He has historical info on many buildings, Inverness in general, that you will miss on your own. Also, he asked what we may be interested in learning about, appreciated that. He had fun facts along the way, and answered all questions that we asked! This is a great walking tour, well worth the low price! Thanks Simon!

Great Mini Historical Tour

Very informative and a great way to get introduced to Inverness. There was plenty of historical knowledge we were given and it helped to understand more about Scotland in general.

Must do experience

The 1.5 hour city tour with my wife any myself covers the important parts of the city of Inverness and explains the history of the city and provides a historical perspective of the various important buildings and structures in the city which we would otherwise not have got by just walking around. The flavor of local history and information is priceless and could not be obtained even if one did this by themselves for hours. In 1.5 hours it helps cover the entire city and you are free to spend the rest of the day as per your choice. A really must have experience.

Dark tour was great

We joined the Dark tour and had a great time. Learned a few historic facts, some ghosts stories and seen a good part of old Inverness. Even the weather cooperated!

Nice Introduction to Inverness

This walking tour is a good way to get acquainted with Inverness and some of the local Highland culture and history. Not a strenuous walk, but it does cover quite a bit of area throughout the city centre. Simon was an engaging and knowledgeable tour guide - very attentive to the group.

Nice walking tour in Inverness

We went on this tour as a shore excursion while on a cruise. It was an excellent tour, and Sarah was an excellent tour guide. This is about a 1 1/2 hour tour that makes a loop around the old city of Inverness. This was easy walking, but we covered a lot of ground in a relatively short time so it would be hard with a walker. Sarah had much information about Inverness, particularly in regards to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Highland Rebellion. Fortunately we had a beautiful day and an enjoyable tour. I would definitely recommend.
