It was a good tour. I really like the freedom of the hop on - hop off. The only disappointment that we had was the castle. It was closed for restoration while we were there so we weren't able to go inside.

SUPERB AND GREAT
Short and sweet. Excellent way to see the city and get your bearings!
Great for highlights
This is a small tour, but well worth doing to get your bearings and views you might have otherwise missed
was most informative and value for money.
Great overview of a surprisingly interesting city. I got the impression that this was a place where most use as a base for touring the Scottish Highlands, but Inverness was very interesting and attractive in its own right. The Hop-on-Hop tour allows you to experience this for yourself. Our tour driver was a spunky friendly lady and the recorded commentary was great. The bus also gave a very interesting and comprehensive overview of what there is to see in the city. Great value for the money to boot and highly recommend doing it as it allows us to get to discover a lot of great things about this city in a short time.
My wife and I and her brother went on a British Isle cruise on Princess Cruise line.
We pre-ordered the hop-on hop-off tour bus for all the ports that were available;
Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, Glasgow, Inverness, Edinburgh and London after the end of the cruise.
We also purchased “Skip the Line” at Guinness storehouse,
which was good because of the long line to purchase tickets.
We walked right up to the pre-buy line person and walked in.
All the hop-off hop-on buses were very good, clean and all workers were courteous and helpful.
I don’t think they see the Viator online print off tickets very often,
but there was no problem using the computer print off tickets.
I would definitely recommend the hop-on hop-off tour buses every where you go.
Pre buying did not save a lot, but you did not have to worry about having local cash to buy them.
I normally do not conduct a rating but everything worked out well, so I will in this case.

If you have never been to a city before then I would recommend one of these tours for sitting on the whole way round, just to get an idea of where things are. It is also good for if you have a bit of time to kill, or want to see stuff but are too tired or lazy to actually move - I would be the latter.
I generally think these are good for first day of a trip for finding your bearings, this one in particular because a fair bit of the route is easily walkable. Once I shook my laziness off my son and I enjoyed a pleasant walk along the river Ness and back, stopping at Whin Park at the half way mark, via Ness Islands. I wouldn't have had the confidence to walk it if I hadn't already seen the route via the bus.
The driver was also very friendly.
Good way to explore the city
