While on a CIE tour of Scotland we cruised the Loch Ness searching for the Loch Ness Monster. We had a wonderful time. The cruise was excellent and the crew were extremely friendly. The cruise was one of the highlights of our visit to Scotland.

We booked this trip well in advance to take the "cruise boat" (slower boat). Upon hitting major traffic in Fort William we knew we wouldn't make our scheduled noon tour on time. We were totally crushed. We called ahead and without asking they immediately told...More

We took a wonderful Rib trip with Marcus for one hour and he was extremely knowledgeable and we saw a pair of Ospreys and learned so much more about the surrounding area and we would definitely go on another trip
