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.

 

What kind of accommodation do you use?
We offer lodgings that have been specially selected to enhance your touring experience. You can choose between Guesthouse/B&B or Hotel accommodation:
Guesthouse and B&B
The guesthouses and B&B’s are family run and offer comfortable accommodation in bedrooms that have en-suite bathrooms, tv, tea/coffee making facilities and other facilities. Bedding, towels and basic toiletries are provided. Some guesthouses and B&B’s offer enhanced facilities such as a resident’s lounge where you can relax with other guests. Our guesthouses are a 10/15 minute walk from Inverness City Centre.

We select comfortable hotels that are city centre located. They are a minimum of 3 stars with bedrooms featuring en-suite bathrooms, television, tea and coffee making facilities and other amenities. All have restaurants offering a selection of Scottish and international dishes as well as comfortable bars where you can relax and un-wind.
What type of room should I choose?
Selecting the right sleeping arrangements can be a little bit confusing so here is a description of what you can expect whether you choose guesthouse/B&B or hotel accommodation:
Single room - this is a room for one person sleeping in a single bed.
Twin room - this is a room for two people sleeping in two separate beds
Double room - this is a room for two people sharing one large bed
Family room - this is a room for three people sleeping in one large bed (2 people) and one single bed (1 person).You should note that a family room (particularly when using hotel accommodation) can be a standard double room with either a sofa bed or a rollaway bed.

How much luggage can I bring?
There are no restrictions on the amount of luggage that you can bring on this tour.
What meals are included?
A full Scottish breakfast is included from day 2 onwards. This hearty meal consists of fruit juice; a choice of cereal; bakery basket; cooked items such as eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomato and, maybe, a taste of haggis! plus tea or coffee. Vegetarian and lighter Continental options are always available. Lunch and dinner are not included in the price. During the touring day there will be a stop where you can enjoy lunch in a local pub or restaurant.
Will I see puffins?
late April to late July. We recommend bringing binoculars with you as they can be difficult to spot as for much of the time they are in burrows where they lay their egg.
How do I pay for the admission fees?
Your driver/guide will advise you of the arrangements for each attraction. It’s not possible to pre-pay the admission fees and, generally, credit/debit cards are not accepted so it’s a good idea to have sufficient cash to cover these charges.
What features will the coach have?
All the coaches used on a Freestyle Mini Tour are equipped with air-conditioning, comfortable reclining seats, large picture windows and seat belts.
