    We went on the 2nd Oct 22, and we really enjoyed the boat ride along Loch Ness and Urquart Castle (£27) for both. Charlie was our bus guide and he was extremely knowledgable and friendly. The scenery was out of this world. Would like to have had a bit longer at each stop but otherwise i loved it, and will be booking another tour soon.

    We enjoyed the smaller group. It makes for a much more personal experience. I think the Culloden Battlefield was a definite highlight and also the Balnuaran of Clava was so mystical. Loved it. Our driver was amazing.

    Excellent day tour. The group size is perfect and the pick up is extremely easy. Our guide, Graeme, was a local highlander and shared a lot of stories with us of all the sites and along the way. He played some great music too! The sites covered in the tour are mind blowing and a must see for anyone coming to Scotland. Graeme knows the perfect locations for all the best views. We also stopped several times for refreshments and washroom breaks and Graeme ensured that everyone was super comfortable

    Sensational Tour ! Brian, our tour guide, was absolutely fantastic. He balanced the days & sites with local lore, dramatic history, fun soundtracks, good humor and quiet, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the beautiful surroundings. Harry Potter & Outlander fans will see multiple film locations. I loved being able to book our own accommodations. Our group had a mix of families, couples & singles from different countries & age groups. Brian engaged everyone cheerfully & respectfully and by day two we were all greeting/chatting like friends. A relaxing, enjoyable way to explore the highlands. Highly Recommend!

    Great trip—the falls, the castle, the train—left side forward facing is the best seat, Tea garden for lunch, Viaduct with the train crossing, Kilted Scot playing the bagpipe at the Jacobite monument, Commando, and dusk at the beach skipping rock. And Alana was great was a guide!!

    My brother and I had a wonderful day discovering the Highlands with our awesome tour guide, Andy. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and entertaining. We had plenty of stops to take photos, strech our legs, eat/drink, and collect souvenirs. The bus was surprisingly comfortable and the ride was very smooth. For the price, this trip was a steal and we both highly recommend this experience. Even though it was a nearly 12 hour day, we lost track of the time and were absorbed by the beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

    We had a long port day in Invergordon, and the tours provided by the cruise line (and other suppliers) either visited Loch Ness OR Culloden, but not both - so this tour was the perfect combination of those sites, plus more! We're also big Outlander fans, so while that wasn't the primary focus of the tour, it was nice that it was thrown in.

    From the start, the team at Thistle were excellent at communication. Then three days before the tour, they sent a message saying that due to demand, the tour would be operated with a larger vehicle, but that it would only be half-full. Actually, we preferred this - we would much rather be able to stretch out on a half-full coach, than cram a bunch of strangers into a small van.

    Our guide Wendy was waiting across from the port, as advertised. There's a big purple flag that says Thistle, so the guides are impossible to miss. Wendy was personable and full of knowledge about the area, the country, and the sites we visited.

    As advertised, the tour included:
    1. Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness (with a little free time, tickets included in the price)
    2. The city of Inverness (with free time - where Wendy gave a brief free walking tour for those interested)
    3. Culloden Battlefield (where Wendy again gave an informational walking tour of the moor, and then we had a tiny bit of free time - tickets to the visitor center not included in the price)
    4. Clava Cairns (with a few minutes free time)
    5. A bonus stop at a cute little farm shop to see a couple Highland cows (adorable! and one of them is named Jamie Fraser -- haha).

    There was a fair bit of driving, because none of these sites are right next to each other - but the scenery was gorgeous, and Wendy kept us entertained with facts and other info.

    Overall, this was an excellent tour. Of course there's never quite enough time at each spot, but that's just a good excuse to return to the area and spend more time on your own :)

    Our day trip with Mike was fantastic & the highlight of our Scotland trip! Mike personalized our trip from the moment he picked us up and continually asked us what we wanted to see/what was priority for us. We saw all of the sites listed & everything was perfectly timed. We had such a wonderful time that we decided to book another day with Mike on a different tour! Could not recommend more!!!!!!! Sign up for this trip!!!!!!

    Since my traveling partner and I did not want the hassle of renting a car and driving on the "wrong" side of the road, we took this tour in order to see more of the countryside around Inverness. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and we got to see the "Harry Potter train" go across the viaduct. Nice day trip!

    I highly recommend this tour for any Outlander fans, but also for anyone who wants to learn about the storied history of the Scottish Highlands. I personally have not seen Outlander, but my fiancé is a massive fan which is why we initially booked this tour. However, I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Inverness. Our tour guide George was an amazing storyteller, highly knowledgable, and had a great sense of humor. We spent the perfect amount of time at each of locations and heard the stories and myths only a genuine Highlander would know. I would definitely recommend booking this tour with George it was a 10/10 experience and made Inverness one of our favorite and most memorable stops in Scotland.

    Such a well organized and versatile tour. We had a lovely guide who had great tips. The stopp at the Culloden battlefield was impressive and we had enough time to visit the museum and walk through the field.

    We had an amazing time on today's cruise. The skipper’s knowledge is amazing and gave us a real flavour of life in and around the loch. His knowledge on the biodiversity of the loch was both fascinating and interesting. Brilliant views of Ben Nevis.
    A fabulous cruise. Gorgeous scenery.
    Highly recommended
    Elisabeth Mackenzie.
