Allison did a fantastic job on our tour. She showed us trees that we're grown from seeds from our home state of California. Super informative and has great bikes. Please book with her for an excellent ride and a bit of Inverness history.

A waterway adventure in Inverness
Sheryl_S
, May 2022
The rango of information about Inverness was fascinating! Allison gave just the right of detail so that we learned a bit about recent history from an economic, social, and cultural perspective. With the waterways as a focus the ride took us out of the city center so that we got a feel for the surrounding area. The weather was perfect for stopping at the Botanical Center, the various locks, and enjoying the wildlife refuge.

We have been visiting Inverness for a good few years but found out so much from this trip. This is a gentle cycle ride that takes you from the city centre up to the coast through beautiful waterways, with plenty of stops at places of particular interest. Alison is an excellent companion with in depth knowledge of Inverness. I would thoroughly recommend this tour

The tour is wonderful! Richly guided with local, historic and socio-cultural knowledge. Cycling by the river and canal, taking in the sites, there is a nice balance between being on the bike and pausing to enjoy Inverness surroundings. Our tour guide Alison was ace!

This bike trip was a fantastic way to start our few days holiday in Inverness! Alison was a very informative and fun local guide who knew so much about the city, she suggested the best points to stop and give more information, as well as knowing the best places for photos! I loved how she knew so many of the locals as we cycled past which I think added to her genuine enjoyment of her job! A great and informative trip for any cycling ability and I will definitely recommend to friends and family who visit! Thanks Alison :)

Alison was our tour guide and has a good knowledge of the history of Inverness. The bike ride was gentle, no massive steep climbs. Highlight for our group of 3 was the stretch of cycling along the Caledonian Canal and viewing the canal locks.
