* A traveler said: "When I booked I didn't realise this was a private tour, so myself and Debbie were really pleased when we met John and we were going to be able to have his attention and have some freedom in what we did during the day. John is very knowledgeable in all things highlands and has a great sense of humour so that made the trip really enjoyable. We started off travelling to Loch Ness and had photo opportunities across the Lake. What was great is that John let us have the time we wanted on each stop and nothing was rushed this was really refreshing. During the day we fitted in a lot without rushing, we saw Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle, Highland Cows, Clootie Well, Culloden Battlefield and sent some time at the visitor centre there. Stopped off for some lunch in the picturesque Beauly, visited the beautiful and peaceful Clava Cairns and although we didn't get to Glen Ord distillery John shared some drams of Whiskey, of various types, in a very personal tasting. John is a great guide and a person that is easy to spend the day with. Many thanks John for a perfect day in the Highlands. Miles & Debbie"

* A traveler said: "My sister Jenni and I booked a private tour of the Highlands so we could see as much as possible in one day. (This was a side trip on a longer London stay.) Our guide Jim arrived at Kingsmill Hotel in Inverness sharply at nine in the morning. He was nattily dressed in a kilt and traditional broad-shouldered black jacket. With charm and enthusiasm, he ushered us into a posh Audi to see Loch Ness and the ruins of Urquhart Castle straightaway. Inverness was romantically atmospheric with rolling fog and scattered sunshine. We enjoyed a tour and Scotch tasting at Glen Ord distillery and savored clotted cream shortbread on our way to see the Culloden battlefield and the mysterious Clava Cairn stones. Here, Jim gamely played "Jamie Fraser" to my sister's "Claire Randall" for the requisite Outlander photo. It was mid October and we had many of the sites to ourselves. The fall colors were gorgeous as we drove through the countryside to see the famous railway viaduct from the Harry Potter movies. We checked off every item on our Must-See list and loved the whole experience. We highly recommend Whisky Tours for customized day trips with friendly, bonafide Highland guides."
