We really enjoyed the tour. Steve, our bus captain, tour leader and DJ is great. He has deep knowledge and and wonderful sense of humor. The places we visit are suitable for all. It is advertised as free and we can just tip; there was absolutely no pressure to tip more and any specific amount. I felt very happy to give what I thought was at least fair value. They don't even count what was given. This is a level of trust that The Hairy Coo showed. Hats off to them.

Michael and Sean were great tour guides. They told many stories about the history in the area. We had lots of laughs. I would recommend taking this tour. Accommodation was excellent. Inverness looks like a quaint city in the Highlands. Hairy Coo tours do a great job.

Brilliant tour made all the more enjoyable by Brian, our driver, who was very informative and entertaining. Wonderful views throughout. Forest walk beautiful and hairy coos worth seeing. The Distillery very interesting and the Kelpies amazing.
Would certainly do another tour when we next visit Edinburgh.

Our tour guide, Stephen, was the best! From his playlist of Scottish musicians (traditional and contemporary) to the historical and cultural information he provides, his sense of humor really made our day! The sites (Kelpies, lochs, castles, waterfall, Highland scenery) were definitely worth the very reasonable price. I would definitely take this tour again. Thank you for such a memorable day!
