This review is a bit late. By 3 months or so. The time doesn't matter, I've been talking about this tour since I returned to Boston! I'm not sure there is a day that goes by that I don't speak with my friends/fellow tour members about what a great trip we had. I can't think of one thing we would... More

Thank you very much for your 5 star review, you were 5 star guests! We do enjoy taking the less well known roads to lovely little places, it's so much easier in our size of vans. We look forward to meeting you again in 2019 - you can start the planning now! More

I took the 2 day Outlander Tour with my 20 year old daughter - a huge fan. Absolutely the best we've ever experienced! Our group had 4 women with Laura Moon as our guide - like our own little book club. Her beautiful voice, storytelling, knowledge, and outgoing personality made out trip - and that's before we even mention the... More

Well actually that was the last thing we expected- what a gentleman with a huge talent for telling stories that are captivating, even for our 14yr old boy who 'hates' history. We knew we were on a winner when on the afternoon of our first day our son whispered "what are we doing tomorrow l, mum" and with some trepidation... More

They were great, weren't they? The weather was kind, and the craic was good. I am so glad that the days were enjoyed by all the family.

Hugh Allison is magnificent and a true gentleman! We had a private three day tour from Edinburgh to St. Andrews to Inverness to the Scottish Highlands from coast to coast and in between. Hugh is an incredible historian who has so much knowledge to share about Scotland's history. We followed the path of Outlander film sights and added a few... More

We were lucky to have Hugh as our guide. He picked us up from our place and took us via a scenic route to Clava Cairns first. Hugh took time to explain everything and was very knowledgeable. This was followed by Colloden, a very sobering experience, and again well narrated by Hugh. After some purchasing (including Hugh's own book), we... More

We did have a fabulous day, didn't we. It is always a dream for a guide to be travelling with folks totally invested in finding out all about where they are. It was an absolute pleasure sharing my Highlands with you all, and it was an added bonus managing to catch the lovely sunset at Dores Bay on Loch Ness... More

We spent one of our two days in the Highlands on a day tour with George. My wife booked the day as a birthday gift to me so that we could see a few distilleries.

The trip of a lifetime! We spent and entire week in the company and care of Hugh Allison of Inverness Tours. Our trip was an Outlander Immersion Tour but it was so much more than that.
