Poor customer service, but the tour itself was enjoyable
Sandrine_R
, Dec 2021
Had a terrible experience of customer service - as the tour was held during low-season, I was contacted a few days ahead to tell me it would be cancelled. I had to switch my plans and take time for my trip to make calls in order to make it work and take the tour another day than what I'd booked. The tour operator was far from courteous and showed no appreciation, nor any form of compensation for this. The tour experience itself was quite good. Our guide was fun and good company. I learned a lot, however I would have skipped a few stops in order to have a deeper visit of certain attractions - it does feel like I will have to come back for a more complete visit of the area. I would agree with the comments mentioning that more doesn't mean better. I must mention that I was mislead into thinking that Urquhuart castle would be visited since it was specifically mentioned that the entrance ticket was not included (which had me thinking I would be given the choice to visit at my own expense.) I would have gladly skipped the stop to the farm and boutique for a visit of the castle. Overall, I would recommend this tour, however I will prefer to book with another company that I found to offer better customer service, better value for money, and guaranteed tours regardless of the number of bookings (saves a lot of last minute trouble).

We are really disappointed that you enjoyed your actual tour but felt the customer service wasn’t the best We contacted you immediately on your booking through Viator to discuss the possibility of minimum numbers not being met as clearly stated on Viator. We do this with all bookings at this time of year, offering alternative dates or tours if the minimum numbers are not met. This was two weeks in advance of your tour date. The stops and sights are also clearly stated on Viator so you are aware of the tour itinerary. Happy onwards travelling .

Lovely day out exploring some landmarks in and around Inverness and Lochness. Really enjoyed Drew’s tour, especially his perspective on the visit to the Culloden Battlefield. Highly recommended especially if you are not hiring a car.

Thank you Irene for a lovely review. Drew loves taking our guests around and Culloden Battlefield is always a firm favourite. It's so nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving a know exactly where the best sights are. Haste ye back

Another Great Day
Malcolm_J
, Aug 2021
With Robbie for the second time in a week, so quite familiar with each other. The first hour was seeing and hearing as previous, such as Urquhart Castle. Another interesting day, with the highlight being. Culloden. Robbie is very passionate about this subject, as his ancestors were very much involved. A nice touch when the rains came down, having Happy Tours umbrellas distributed.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Thanks you so much again for leaving another great review for Robbie. We try to make sure rain doesn't affect your enjoyment of the day and the umbrellas are sometimes a godsend! Haste ye back.
