This is the perfect tour to end my week long trip in Inverness. I was very fortunate that I had Emily as my tour guide. She was amazing and very professional. She is a born storyteller and she was able to weave facts and trivia flawlessly. We went to the best spots and I was in awe. I suggest you do this tour on your last day, because once you see Loch Ness from Dores Beach, no other view can compare. Rabbies also use hospital grade hand sanitizer, the driver has a plastic panelling on the back of the seat so they can freely talk without a mask safely. They also have pre arranged seating arrangements to maintain social distancing. Don't hesitate and just go ahead and book. You will not regret it. :)

Jim was an excellent guide and driver. We stopped at all the beauty spots to take photos, had Lunch in a nice village and then we finished off having a River cruise down Loch Ness. Jim really made the Highlands come alive and told us many tales as we were driving along. Recommended.

Our guide Emily was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the local area, we were taken to locations both on and off the tourist trail. The tour was very nicely paced, we seemed to have plenty of time at each stop and at no point were rushed. Overall a fantastic tour definitely visited locations we would not have seen if we had driven ourselves
