Inverness City Tour
, Oct 2021
Drivers friendly and helpful and route good. Goods price too! Would recommend to other visitors to Inverness
Great city layout tour!
, Sep 2021
Enjoyed the River Ness and the history involving St. Columba. Great to get the layout of the city and area. Seeing the Caledonian Lochs was a nice plus along with the Dochgarroch Loch. It also nicely worked in history of the area with the Inverness Castle and Flora MacDonald statue.
Pleasant trip
, Sep 2021
Ear phones would have been handy as it was hard to hear the commentary, especially when the bus drove faster in the country. Not a huge amount to see but it was good to get your bearings of the city. Pleasant trip.
Not happy, no bus today, 29 Aug
, Aug 2021
The red Inverness bus was cancelled today because of an event so we couldn’t use the ticket. We also couldn’t find any map or list of stops on the website. We booked late yesterday in order to use the 24 hour ticket today but I got an email assuming I’d taken the trip even though my code couldn’t have been scanned as I hadn’t travelled. The office at the bus station was unable to find my booking so couldn’t refund it. I will pursue that by email or phone.

Weather was good…..enjoyed trees coming into bus and dodging them. Couldn’t hear commentary on top of bus
Poor quality
, Jul 2021
Very poor . They show you tesco, Morrison’s and industrial estates. Not even joking. Why would I want to see the supermarkets where there is so many beautiful sites to visit in Inverness ?! The tour took maybe 35 min max. You drive through a motorway and You can’t hear anything from the speakers. Just badly organised

Given the small size of the city this is pretty much a waste! I did the Inverness Bike Tour which gave a much better overview of the city. Skip it!
