Awesome tour of the Highlands and Loch Ness
, May 2021
Had an amazing day tour to see Loch Ness and the Highlands. Our guide Chris really went above and beyond to make this tour memorable! He told us lots of stories, and knows his history, I was very impressed! He took us to places not on the itinerary to get the most beautiful pictures! We even went on an unexpected hike to to the most amazing spot in all of the highlands! I really enjoyed this tour and Recommend booking with Timber Bush, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Chris 😊

Hi Raynessa, Thanks again for leaving a 5* review for your tour to Loch Ness with Chris! It's great to hear you enjoyed your day exploring Nessie - I hope you got her on camera! All the best, Amy
Day tour of Loch Ness

An excellent tour. We felt very safe with all the covid measures, guests and driver wore masks at all times and hand sanitizer available whenever we got back on the bus. The tour was excellent, we were only in Inverness for a day and wanted to see the area and learn a little of it's history. We chose to do the 2 additional tours Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness boat trip and we were glad we did. Ryan our driver /guide was both knowledgeable and informative, mixing facts about places with his own experiences. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

Excellent Loch Ness Tour
, Aug 2020
Loved it. Very well planned route with sufficient time in each place to explore. The boat ride was fantastic. It should be standard rather than an option. Our guide was very well organized, friendly and knowledgeable about the places that we visited. I have already booked 2 further tours with you this week and will book your Orkney tour for May 2021. I have also recommended to friends.

Great tour

Our tour was great!!! We had a great guide...Cris, if I remember... 19th of february. We were a group of 6 and only myself understood English... which I let Cris know at the begining of the tour to let him know if he sees that we are talking it was because I was translating. When we were out of the bus he was always very attent i letting me know things to fill my friends in on what was going on.... very very nice of him... He called us THE BASQUE TEAM jaja. It was a great tour!!!!

Our tour guide Chris was excellent from the beginning of the trip he was very informative and gracious! He allowed us plenty of time to take pictures and was quite knowledgeable about the history of the area. He even added his own personal touch by telling us humorous stories about the region and people

There was only the two of us on this tour. We were met promptly at the meeting point by Ryan complete with his tartan kilt. Right from the start we hit it off with Ryan. He was courteous,knowledgeable and funny. The tour lasted from 0845 to 1730 hrs and included a cruise on Loch Ness and Urquhart castle (extra costs) also visits to various sites all around the loch finishing back in Inverness. Can't praise Ryan enough for such a great day. We would recommend him to anybody. Jenny and Roy

Neil was a wonderful tour guide and driver. He was very thoughtful of the group and their needs. The boat on the Loch was new, smooth, and comfortable. Neil was knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. We didn’t see Nessie.....maybe next time.
Great time
