We took the tour with Gerard. Had an excellent experience walking round a very beautiful city. We always like doing waking tours in new cities and Gerard was a great host teaching us about a range of interesting things from the Jacobite influence right through to Nessy! Would fully recommend for people visiting the city or locals who want to know more about their home town

My wife and I did the walking tour with another couple with Gerard as our guide. It was advertised as 1.5 hours but Gerard was happy to extend this as we had nothing on afterwards and we were so glad that he did. He was really knowledgeable on the history and significance of Inverness as well as the architecture and Loch Ness. It was a really great balance of historical facts, engaging stories and jokes and we would definitely recommend as a must do for anyone visiting

We had a great time on the tour with Gerard as our guide. It was very interesting, Gerard was clearly enthusiastic about the city, packed with relevant historical facts and was a friendly and talkative presence throughout. It took us around some local spots in the centre of town that we wouldn't have gone to otherwise and finished in a convenient location for lunch after the tour (started at 11:30). We would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about the local area.

We booked on a walking tour for Inverness in the hope of learning something about the city in a fun way. What a disppointment it was! Our guide Gerard, talked a lot, but most of it was uninteresting waffle about English and Scottish Kings and Queens. In front of the Episcopelian cathedral he droned on about Henry VIII and his 6 wives before we moved on back to the city centre. He did not even ask us to at least peek inside the cathedral. At that point we had spent already 2 hours (he had said at the start that he would go beyond the booked 1.5 hours) in total listening to his ramblings about the monarchy and had seen only 5 sites. We were so bored that we decided to slip off and do our own thing instead. Why should the history of the monarchy be the main focal point of a walking tour of Inverness? History is so much more. The disproportionate way that our guide spun it out, he must have an obsession with it. Current affairs, local stories of interest, the history of Inverness in its physical and demographic development, immigration, emigration, funny or sad facts, the story of buildings, tips for restaurants or less known places to go - none of this featured in this walking tour. Most of the guide's ramblings were disconnected from Inverness itself and had no topical relevance. His jokes were so lame, you had to look twice to realise that it was meant to be funny. Inverness has so much to offer, but you won't find out about it from Gerard.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, we're really sorry you had a bad experience on the tour. We're sorry the tour wasn't up to your specific standards. I hope for those seeing this who are thinking of booking with us, please take note that this is our only one star review, and hundreds of other customers have loved our tour. We pride ourselves on giving a top quality tour with local guides run as a small, local business. The tour focuses on exploring Inverness with a local and we visit many locations around the city, giving a wide overview of the city's history. Whilst this is a history tour, it's also a cultural tour full of local insight, bringing today's Inverness to light but giving you the background to understand how the city came to be as it is today. If there's something in particular you're interested in that we can't squeeze in (we do have limited time after all) then please just ask the guide and they will be more than happy to answer any questions you have. If you have any hesitations about the tour before booking, feel free to email us before booking.

Simon, our excellent guide, met us as planned, and explained that only the two of us had signed up for the tour. We suspected it might be cancelled as a result (this had been indicated as a possibility when booking). Not so - Simon didn’t want to let us down, so the tour went ahead as scheduled. We'd been to Inverness a few times, but a guided walking tour is a great way to learn more about a city and its history. Simon was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, and couldn't have been more accommodating. It was a relatively short tour, but it is a small city. Simon packed plenty in, and we came away feeling very satisfied with the quality of the tour and the value for money. Thanks again, Simon!

Gerard was a great tour guide. This was supposed to only take 1.5 hours, but Gerard was happier to tell us stories for much longer. He asked if we had other arrangements for the day, and then shaped the tour around our plans. Our group didn't have anything until the late afternoon so he let the tour last much longer than 1.5 hours. He told amazing stories, and wove all the history of Inverness together so it was engaging and fun and interesting. I felt so invested in the tour, like I was listening to a really good book or watching a tension filled TV drama.
He got to know us all on first name basis, told amazing jokes, had a great humour and mood, and more importantly, had a genuine love for Inverness and showing people around the city. I loved this tour and really do recommend it.

Spent a day in Inverness recently and we always like to do a tour of the city to find out about the history and stories that make up the culture of the place. Simon was simply awesome. He was very knowledgeable, answered every question and told the history and stories of Inverness in an entertaining and enjoyable way. I highly recommend to do this tour if you are in Inverness.

After being let down with a tour I’d booked with another well known tour company, i went to the local tourist information office & they recommended this company. Gerard was an informative tour guide who took us round the important parts of the city’s architecture. It would’ve been nice to actually go into Inverness Cathedral if we’d had the time but it did overun slightly but as I didn’t have anything planned afterwards, I was ok with this.

Had a great tour with Scott who was extremely knowledgeable and keen to pass this on.
The tour was unhurried and very informal and provided some great background as to the history of the city.
Highly recommended tour with a great small business that deserves to be supported, especially in these current times.
