Wonderful Highlands Experience
Brenda_S

So happy to have booked this tour. It was an excellent introduction to the Highlands. Our guide John was so knowledgeable and gracious; it was a pleasure spending the day with him. With a maximum of 8 people the tours feel very personal. We saw Loch Ness, a view of Urquhart Castle, Beauly, Highland cows, Culloden Battlefield, and Clava Cairns. If I'm lucky enough to be back in Scotland I will surely book more tours with the Happy Tours provider.

Bill was amazing! Given his career teaching history in various levels of school, high school, college etc; it showed in his knowledge and passion for sharing the history of Scotland. A wee dram, homemade shortbread and a toast to the memory of the fallen at Culloden was a lovely touch on such a dark period in history. Thank you Bill!!

Thank you Marissa for leaving Bill an amazing review. His history knowledge is second to none, and as you say he oozes it. The wee toast is from Bill himself, a token of his appreciation for coming to visit his homeland. Haste ye back

Everything was perfect on schedule. We has an amazing day. Stuart was a kind, knowledgeable and trustful guide. He brought into life the terrible Cullon battle, it moves me. At Clava Cairns he spent time telling us about all the facts but also the miths. My raincoat was soaked and not only did he gave me his, but he gave it to me as a present! So nice of him. He made the tour a blast. Thanks a lot.

Wonderful day trip in the Inverness area.

Great day tour of the Inverness area. Craig was a fantastic guide with his mix of information and humor. He is very knowledgeable about each of the stops and I was particularly impressed with our visit to the Culloden battlefield. He not only walked us through the battlefield but narrated the battle as well. He was also very willing to engage in discussion and answer questions. There were no fees at any of the sites other than to buy food at lunch and a wee drink of whiskey at the distillery. This is a wonderful day trip.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thank you so much for your review for Craig. We love you had a wee taster at the distillery, it is nice to sample the locally made whisky. Culloden Battlefield is very impressive, with a guide like Craig it brings the history alive. Haste ye back.

Our guide/driver Dave was fantastic! Made the trip a wonderful experience. All of the locations were excellent. Would have loved extra time to go inside the castle instead of the distillery stop!

David with Happy tours was very knowledgeable and personable. He brought to life the history behind the Culloden civil war battle. We made several stops including the castle on Loch Ness. For lunch we had a choice of two restaurants. The delicatessen was delicious and affordable. We do recommend this full day small group tour. He even helped us arrange our travel back to our cruise ship.
