My fiancé and I always wanted to see Loch Ness. The bus stand was easy to find, only few minutes from out hotel in Inverness. Our guide - Tonks, was the greatest person I have ever met, she made our trip so amazing, as she was taking us around Loch Ness she would tell us old stories, legends and fun facts. We were laughing so hard on that trip, it was 9 hours long but honestly it flew by so fast. When you are having fun time flies. When we got to the lake, we took a boat to see Urquhart Castle and it was breath-taking! I have never seen something so beautiful, plus I did not know that Loch Ness was that big. The castle ruins are a great sight that you can explore by yourself plus there is a tourist centre up the hill where you can get great souvenirs and watch a short film about the castle. Fort Augustus - great views and Caledonian Canal plus best fish and chips we ever had! And the rest is for you to find out! That milkshake though :)
It was very easy to book online and all of the information we needed was very clear. The itinerary was varied and the sights were truly spectacular. There were plenty of rest room stops and opportunities to buy refreshments and lunch throughout the day. The tour guide was great fun and very informative. He looked after us excellently. The tour bus was very comfortable. I would highly recommend the trip.
I want to write a review of our tour driver. Tonks was amazing! She knew everything about every place we went to. Her friendly nature was infectious and she was very patient when people were late. Her driving was quite safe. She also did everything she could to make us feel welcome.
Excellent tour, I recommend it to everyone! I went with my mother, our first trip on an international trip. Even with our language difficulty the guide Ryan was very attentive and patient, as well as being very friendly and getting to know the history of the place! we loved it!
Had a really nice day, our guide Allison (I think) was really funny. What was pretty insane though was the prize for the boat over Loch Ness+entrance Urquhart Castle was £27 with card and £17 with cash(!!!!) so make sure to bring cash. This wasn’t stated anywhere
