Frequently Asked Questions

What will I experience on this Freestyle Mini Tour?
These tours are ideal if you are an independent spirit. Instead of spending your entire tour with the same group you’ll join a different party of fellow passengers each day to explore different aspects of the Highlands.
The Freestyle touring concept is particularly popular in Canada, New Zealand and Australia as it offers the ideal blend of structured sightseeing and relaxing free time.  All Freestyle Mini Tours are based in Inverness, which is an excellent base offering good quality accommodation, great shopping plus a wide choice of dining opportunities and evening diversions.
On the journeys between Edinburgh and Inverness you’ll travel in a large motorcoach (seating around 50 passengers) allowing you to relax and enjoy the journey in comfort. Once you are based in Inverness you will travel on an excursion each day which will be led by a local driver/guide in an air-conditioned mini or midicoach (seating between 16 and 29 passengers). An entertaining and informative commentary will be provided throughout.
On your arrival in Inverness you’ll be taken directly to your accommodation. Each morning you’ll be picked up from your lodgings by the tour coach. After a day of discovery you’ll be dropped in Inverness City Centre where you can get something to eat before returning to your accommodation. If you are a free spirit that likes to get behind the tourist veneer then a Freestyle mini-tour is just for you.

Can I reserve specific seats on the coach?

How do I pay for the admission fees?
