Wonderful journey in Inverness with Drew
Laurence_V
, May 2022
What a wonderful time we had with Drew! Highly recommend this guided tour. Drew is a welcoming kindhearthed person with such a way of describing his home. The way the tour is built and the knowledge that Drew brings to it, makes it a memorable journey to Scotland. Side note, it is really great choice for couples because of the limited 8 seater bus which gives it a sense of "private tour"

Thank you Lauren for the generous review for Drew and Happy Tours. We too love the more personal small bus tour, the guide gets to know you so well and other guests become friends. Slainte mhath!

Robbi is the best!!!
Linda_R

We highly recommend Robbi. Between beautiful venues his witty jokes and impromptu spouting of quotes and poetry kept us in stitches. But when it came to Culloden he sombered and stressed the importance of this sacred place. We will never forget this fantastic day!

Good tour for people interested in history
Julia_F
, May 2022
Very informative tour. Our tour guide gave us plenty of historical details, and we visited all the major spots. A couple of watch-outs: * This tour isn't ideal for non-English speakers, even if a translator is on board. There was a lot of information to be shared and no time for translation. * This is not a "chill" tour. There is a lot to see and time is tight, so we couldn't enjoy the views and stops as widely as we wanted.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you Julia for the kind review. It's great you appreciated the information given but we are sorry if some of the details were lost in translation for you. The guides try to ensure every nationality is catered for. We feel this is an unhurried tour compared to many and strive to give a full tour at an acceptable pace to all. Haste ye back.

Wonderful day! Thank you Drew!

The views of the Highlands were spectacular! Our driver, Drew, was very informative and helpful. Visiting Culloden Battlefield was an honor and grateful for the opportunity to remember those who fought so gallantly for Scotland. Clava Cairns was fascinating. Although interesting, would rather have forgone some of the short stops along the way and spent more time at Culloden Battlefield.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you Dena for leaving Drew a great review. We love you has such a wonderful day and loved the scenery. It's a fine balance on the length of time at Culloden, not everyone is super interested but we are honoured you were. Slainte mhath!

Had a great time on this tour - lovely travel companions and an excellent tour guide, Stuart. As a local, Stuart was able to show us many sights of interest off the beaten track. Not only very professional, but offered his knowledge of local history and customs. Visited Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle; Singleton Glen Ord Distillery, Robertsons Farm Larder, the old Priory in Beauly, Culloden and Clava Cairns. Beauly is a beautiful village - and was a great place for a lunch stop. A full day - but well worthwhile. Thank you, Stuart, and Happy Tours !

Thank you so much Christine for a wonderful review of the tour you had with with Stuart . It is a full day but it's well worthwhile as you say. Beauly with the blossom is simply so pretty. Haste ye back.

I had such a wonderful day on this tour. It was small and more personable. The tour guide was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. We were able to spend a nice amount of time at the places and saw some lovely stuff. Loved the other people in the tour group too. Highly recommend.

Thank you Lindsay for the great review for Drew and our recommendation. We love you enjoyed the smaller tour and really like your fellow travellers. A small group is such a more personal experience as you have so much more of the guides time and attention. Haste ye back.

Drew was fantastic! Great experience. If you want to walk around the town of Beauly skip the Award winning Deli, good food but slow service.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you Ingrid for the great review for Drew. We're sorry the deli was slow to serve, like everywhere they are suffering staff shortages just now. If your not hungry a walk around is definitely a good option. Beauly is so pretty. Haste ye back.
