Went on this as my little girl loves buses and she always wanting to go on it. As we from here. But was good to learn new things about this town never knew before. We had a great day on bus we done red route. And was lovely day

Fabulous tour in the red route then back to go on the bkue route historic Inverness City fabulous scenery and then a visit to the fabulous Culloden visitor centre and a walk around the historic battle field.

the tour was just right for the time we had available. The audio system could have been a bit better to hear the commentary clearer

Helpful and friendly crew and well thought route showing the best views of the town. Highly recommended.

The trip was amazing! Me and my family enjoyed it a lot.
