My husband and I booked for a Monday evening walking tour, and were the only ones on it so had a marvellous time. Our guide, Gerard, was exceptional, very friendly and very knowledgeable! He took us for a gentle stroll around the city centre while recounting Inverness’ incredible story and how it played a large and important part in the rest of Scotland’s history. We visited the Castle and all the important historic buildings, as well as crossing the river a few times. Gerard is a born story teller and we learnt what a great place Inverness was, and still is!

Great walk through Inverness

Although I try to take the hop-on/hop-off buses on every first visit of a new place, I prefer walking tours. You have more time to stay at interesting parts of the place that you visit and I think you get more information about what you see from the tourguide. Very much enjoyed the walk through Inverness.

The guided walk through Inverness was very interesting. Simon took us to exciting and worth seeing places in the city and answered our questions and requests. Unfortunately he spoke very quickly and with a Scottish accent so that we had to make every effort to understand him, which made it very exhausting.
