Invent sent me an email cancelling our advance-booked tour late afternoon of the day before the tour date (scheduled on 4th Nov) citing lack of sufficient pax. Were kind enough to offer the option of an alternative or a refund. I chose to seek a refund and responded with this request the very same day. Since then haven't received a... More

I also apologies that your tour was cancelled but unfortunately as a small company we do have a minimum number of 4 passengers per tour. We hope that if you come back to Edinburgh in... More

Amazing full day tour and we did not feel rushed at all. Jamie was young outgoing and informative and kept on our schedule so that we could see it all

Had a wonderful time with Invent Scottish Tours' trip to Lock Ness and Glencoe, with Moira McCrae leading the way. Her knowledge, experience, and love of the area were all exciting and helpful in our understanding and appreciating the Highlands. We highly recommend Invest Scottish Tours and Moira.

Paul made our Tour of Scottish Independence a joy. His insights added so much value to the already rich information at Falkirk, Linlithgow, Stirling Castle, Bannockburn, Dunfermline, and at the William Wallace Victorian Monument. He was smart, flexible, safe, and fun to travel with. Easy to recommend that anyone with an interest in Scottish history and incredible views take this... More

Firstly, let me start by saying how sorry I am that this tour was cancelled, this is never something that we like to do however the circumstances were out with our control.

I believe we booked this trip online with Go Scottish Tours, but we traveled in our shuttle with Invent Scottish Tours, Moira McCrae is outstanding! What a sweet and knowledgeable guide! The Scottish Highlands are incredible and Moira went well out of her way to ensure we had an incredible time! She even pointed out the birthplace and gravesite of... More

Moira was our guide to Linlithgow Palace,the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies with other stops along the way. She was informative and flexible on timing and a good travelling companion who was anxious to make sure that we enjoyed our day. Strongly Recommended!

We had a fantastic trip with Moira on our outing. There were six of us and Moira kept us informed and amused as we explored castles, lakes and ancient battlegrounds.

Great guide, Jamie who was really flexible, friendly and offered a lovely tour for 6 people-very personable. The Tour of Independence is a must! The tour needed one more hour but every stop was amazing! Highly recommend Stirling Castle (get the 45 min tour with Ross if you can-awesome guide!)The only thing to improve would be the microphone in the... More
