What a fantastic day we had with John! John was personable, knowledgable, organized, very flexible and prompt. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. We had discussed our itinerary over email and along the way John showed us a few other things that we would never have seen had we been on a ship excursion.The stop at Clava Cairns was amazing and is a MUST on any tour of the area. John was very informative when explaining the site and made the experience that much more interesting. We highly recommend a tour with John if you want to learn a lot about the Inverness area. Thanks for a wonderful experience and for being such a great ambassador for Scotland. This tour was the highlight of our trip!

I booked John for a private tour for my husband and myself for our cruise stop in Invergordon on our British Isles cruise. He is an excellent guide and we really enjoyed our day. It was easy to book ahead of time. He answered all my questions via email when we booked, and followed up before the cruise. He was prompt at the port. We talked about what we wanted to see (Inverness, Urquhart Castle, Cawdor Castle, etc.) and he made a suggested plan for the day which worked out very well. We saw a lot and were not rushed. We had time to stop to take photos while driving in between places. We stopped along small roads to see beautiful vistas, wildlife (hairy coos! and Clydesdale horses), bridges, etc. We first went to Cawdor Castle and beat the group crowds. We then went to Inverness. We appreciated that while we had time to explore Inverness on our own, he suggested we just pick up sandwiches and eat back in his van on the way to the next stop, so we did not spend all our time in the town at a restaurant. In the afternoon we went to Urquhart Castle. We really enjoyed our day. I would recommend John for any cruiser stopping in Invergordon. He is friendly, professional, and knows so much about the area.

We were 5 cousins who made the same trip our mothers had made together in 1982. Out great grandfather and grandmother left the highlands to go to America In December 1867. We had a picture of the house he grew up in and a picture of the school where he taught school. We had an address on Shore street in Hilton. John was so wonderful to find the house and the school. John was so patient with us.... as we are all senior citizens. He also took us across the Nigg ferry and showed us many other wonderful sights. We highly recommend John as a tour guide of the Highlands!

We hired John to take a group of 6 of us around the Highlands for our shore excursion day. He was waiting for us with his roomy van and did an excellent job of driving us around the Highlands and giving us a commentary of the area as we went. As the weather was a bit challenging, we worked with John to tweak our itinerary to try to take best advantage of the day. We visited Cawdor Castle, the Clava Cairns and Culloden Battlefield and drove by Urquhart Castle, Beauty, Loch Ness and Inverness. Despite our late port arrival time, thanks to John, we managed to get a good overview of this lovely area and arrived back at the ship in a timely way.

We selected See The Highlands private tour which took four of us to Dunrobin Castle, the Falls of Shin, Millionaires View and Dornoch. Donnie was an excellent tour guide and a very caring and concerned individual, as one person in our party was not well. He went out of his way for us. Dunrobin Castle was a real highlight with it's falconry show. The tour itself for four people was very affordable (way less than the cruise line's 50-passenger tours) and we were able to customize our entire day
