      Brilliant way to see the Highlands!
      We had an amazing eight hour day with Bill, our local and knowledgeable and passionate tour guide! From Castles to distilleries to battlefields and hideaway restaurants, and more this experience could not have been more informative and enriching!

      Excellent experience
      My sister and I traveled to Scotland in September, 2023. We had decided not to rent a car and drive. Of all our choices she chose this tour and we were not disappoInted. Lochness is not all about a monster. It is beautiful and well worth the trip. The Urquhart Castle is a ruin which has been preserved on Lochness. The view of the castle from the visitor’s center is brilliant. We made different stops before lunch and then to the Culloden Battlefield where a significant event in Scottish history happened. Finally we toured the Clava Cairns where if you are a believer (Outlander) there is a vertical stone that can be touched and possibly transport you to a different century. Malcolm wore a kilt and was a great guide and the 8 seater van was comfortable and much more intimate than a huge tour bus. Just do it❗️

      The tour was excellent! Our guide Stuart was outstanding, very skilled and the places we visited were amazing. It was also really interesting to learn how to trully drink whisky! I have to mention that on the day of our tour it was raining and when we arrived in the Battlefiled, the rain was really hard but Stuart went through, asked if we would like to go to the field even under that weather and as we said so, he went with us and did a really good job explaining everything to us although soaked and wet.

      Fantastic tour!
      What a wonderful, fun day out to Skye with a small group of fellow travelers & guide Niall. Weather was in our favor and we had great stops along with beautiful scenery at Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle, Portree, Bride's Veil Falls, faerie pools, & more. Niall was so knowledgeable and full of interesting & entertaining stories all along the way. I highly recommend this tour and tour operator, as this was my second experience with Happy Tours and I was indeed very happy both times. I will book again next trip!

      Great Tour to Isle of Sky with Drew!
      My sister and I did the Isle of Sky tour with Drew as our driver and tour guide. He was a great driver and shared interesting history along the way, a very nice local man he gave us some local context and the tour felt authentic, not contrived. We had a really nice day, saw a lot of the beautiful Highlands, learned a lot, and with a good lunch stop in Portree. Thank you Drew! Also a shoutout to Cameron who helped us book the tour last minute (after a different party cancelled) - he was very helpful and also quite funny and we shared some hearty laughter - good job keeping it fun! I would happily do another Happy Tours tour without hesitation!

      Great tour experience
      We did three tours with Happy Tours: Isle of Skye & Eileen Donan castle (Mike was our tour guide); Glenfinnon Viaduct & Great Glen (with Drew); and, Culloden Battlefield & Loch Ness (with Malcolm). We thoroughly enjoyed all three tours and each of our tour guides. They were entertaining, informative, attentive, and punctual. We'd highly recommend this company for tours!

      Must do tour!! Do not hesitate to book this tour, it was one of our favorite parts of our trip! Niall specifically was a great guide and shared much more than we would have learned while touring ourselves and was very entertaining. Would recommend five times over! Only wish we had more time to try more of the tours.

    Amazing day we had! The Dunrobin Castle and Glenmorangie Distillery Tour 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Date traveled : September 14th 2022
    From: Canada
    Price paid: $240.00 CAD for x2 ppl.
    Guide: DREW :)

    Fabulous guide, Drew, was ! Amazing:)

    We were fortunate enough to have only x6 off us ( mixed group of strangers from all over the globe) in the van so we all got along like a bunch of happy 1/2 pissed clams walking around a distillery at the end of the tour ;)

    Drew was a fab host; the hawk and falcons at the Dunrobin Castle were spectacular and of course, the sites along the highway were breathtaking.

    Thanks DREW for being a ball of laughs and for driving like we were on a rollercoaster. Believe it or not, we liked thrill.

    My sister and I toured Scotland in September, 2023 and one of our stops was Inverness. We chose not to rent a car and drive so she picked out this tour and not really knowing about the area we were not disappointed. It was guided by William in a kilt which was a nice touch which also gave you a taste of his clan loyalty. We traveled in a comfortable 8 seater van which made the trip much more intimate. The itinerary was interesting. The view of the Dunrobin Castle from the garden level is unforgettable. At the last stop at the Glenmorangie Distillery we were gathered to taste of wee dram of distilled Scotch (which I passed on) and William (Bill) treated us to some of his wife’s, Mary, homemade shortbread. Such a generous personal gesture❗️

    The tour was great. The van was very clean and modern. The scenery was breathtaking including getting to see seals swimming and sunning themselves. Best castle tour we have been to and it also included a falcon and hawk demonstration that was incredible. Even better than all those wonderful things was our driver Stewart. Stewart was funny, informative and just made the day perfect. Highly recommend.

    We could not have asked for a better experience as we traveled to and toured the Dunrobin Castle and Glenmorangie Distillery. The castle was magnificent and was the inspiration for the Disney princess castles. The beautiful grounds provided the perfect environment for a lovely stroll as well as a falconry exhibit. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting at the Glenmorangie Distillery along with commentary and explanation from our guide. We were so fortunate to have had Stewart as our guide. He provided a pleasant, calm, and caring environment while filling our trip with interesting information at every turn. Both trips we’ve taken with Happy Tours were well worth the time.

    Dunrobin is a beautiful castle (similar to the beautiful home in Newport, RI. Enjoyed walking around. The falconry show in the garden was very cool! Nice lunch in Dornoch. Then our stop to Glenmorangie. This was the highlight of the tour with this distillery being one of our favorites. We were somewhat rushed but we still got to do tastings of the whisky. I would've loved an official tasting and tour but we knew that was not part of the tour. Next time!! Drew was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable!

    Happy Tours saved the day when another tour cancelled due to covid. Drew was our guide and made sure we had everything we needed. He was friendly and informative. The tour left and arrived on time, and was well organized. It was an enjoyable day and I would book with this company again.

    Dunrobin Castle is really beautiful and worth seeing. It has some accessibility issues, but a person can be driven down to the garden level with some communication with the castle. The falconry display is in the garden area and was really exciting!

    Lunch was in Dornoch at the Eagle Hotel. It was good enough, but in retrospect, I wish I had eaten a packed lunch and walked around town instead.

    Glenmorangie was ok. We have been on many other distillery tours and found this one rushed and lacking a lot of information. It was a quick introduction, so worth doing if you haven't been on a distillery tour before.

    It was a good tour and a relaxing day.

    Than you so much Carrie for the lovely review for Happy Tours and Drew. We love your photos that you've shared, especially the one with the hawk in full flight. Well captured! As you say, you can get help down to the display if you let us know in advance you have some mobility issues, we're glad on the day you managed to be accommodated. Dornoch is a beautiful lunch stop , so your tip is great! Glenmorangie is a nice place to visit, we're sorry you thought the tour a bit sparce. Haste ye back.

    This was a good tour and one I’d recommend. The distillery was interesting but the castle stills the show.
    Amazing place and the gardens are second to none. The Duke who held the property isn’t the most honorable but what a place!
    The Falcons show is a must see as well.
    Craig is a good guide who will watch out for you, a safe driver, shares good knowledge and I heck of a nice guy

    Stuart was a great tour guide! He really went above and beyond to help my mobility-challenged Mom during our tour. He is so knowledgeable about the history of Scotland and his passion for the area showed. Scotland is gorgeous! The small group was so nice- we all were talking and having fun during the tour. Nice, clean vans! We booked 2 other tours with Happy Tours as a result of our time today. Thank you!
