Great experience!! During the trip on the boat they explain things about the Loch Ness which I found interesting. Also they have a bar inside the bar so you can enjoy the views while having a drink. They have Loch ness lagger which is really good. Worth to try it.

It was a remarkable tour specially my little once really enjoyed it, cruise started on-time and returned as scheduled, clear tour guide on the boat and beautiful scenic views from the Castle, 30 minutes each way on the boat & 1 hour castle visit perfectly completed the tour. We enjoyed it very much :-)

Very good price and able to do both activities

Very good, the only thing is the distance from the Cruise ship. We were on princess cruise. From the cruise ship we had to get a taxi and the cost was $ 150 Pounds both ways, so if you are doing this tour from a cruise , add this cost. Still it was cheaper than any of the tours offered by princess cruise ship.
