Beautiful tour, helpful guide. We especially enjoyed feeding the highland cows. And a nip of whiskey warmed my bones since it was very cold. I do recommend this tour. Cheers

The weather was totally uncooperative during our Isle of Sky tour, but Drew, our tour guide, was fantastic. He was so welcoming and shared interesting tales of the places we went to as well as stories of local life in the Highlands. He really made the tour special and I will definitely use Happy Tours again. I cannot wait to see this area in the warmer months.

Highly highly recommend. This day tour combines the best of all the highlights from Inverness and our guide + driver John was just fantastic. Being a true blue Highlander he delighted us with his knowledge of the local area as well as the history of Scotland. He knew all the best spots for photographs and timed the whole trip so we'll. Such a lovely experience.

A very Nice tour, with a guide, Mike, who knew all there is to know. Spectacular nature, what a scenery and many funny stories. The weather was nice, and we got to spend some time outside the bus. I would have wanted to walk more, spend more time at every stop. It was a long day.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
Thank you for leaving Mike a great review. We love that you enjoyed the scenery and all the history and anecdotes. It's an 11 hour tour as it is and spending longer at the attractions would make the tour too long for most persons tastes. I note your points however. haste ye back

Hands down the best

The tour was unbelievable! Hands down the best in Scotland and probably the best I've ever been. Bryan was simply amazing: very considerate of everything, very careful with each detail. Great sense of humor and a wealth of information. I normally don't write reviews! Bryan was simply that good. Not to speak of the scenery which is simply amazing.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
We love you found the tour so great and probably the best you have ever done. Wow! Bryan is amazing and he will really appreciate the time you have taken to leave him a review. Haste ye back
