    Rich was very entertaining and informative with the history of all the places we visited as well as pointing out the best place for food and I have to thank him for recommending the best sea food pizza we had at cromarty. Thanks again for an enjoyable day out leaving us with fond memories of our visit to Inverness and the highlands. Chris from Malaysia

    This tour stopped at places I know well which I was looking forward to visiting again, but I was disappointed not to have longer than 15 minutes at Chanonry point, and only 30 minutes at Cromarty. There is a shop in Cromarty called Ingrids house which I wanted to go to but it opened at 11am and that's when we left. The stop in Beauly was too long so I think timings could be adjusted a little to allow more time at magical Chanonry and quaint Cromarty. I enjoyed being reminded of the origins of the Nessie mystery, and thought the distillery was good - having a short tour with some tasting was perfect. I liked that the bus was small and that there were only a few of us on the tour, but picking up 11 other people on the way home spoiled the feeling of the day - two of these people left belongings on another vehicle which we had to go back/wait for, and then we stopped and waited a few times for those people to be dropped off at their hotels. It was an annoying end to a pleasant day.
