A sold-out ship's shore excursion led us to John McCormack and what a stroke of luck that was! We had a wonderful day touring the Highlands with John. He was accommodating and adaptable--our ship docked at a different pier and we had to change the meeting location at the last minute. He was also knowledgeable and entertaining--we enjoyed conversing with him. Also, we covered a lot of ground during our 6-hour tour. Highly recommend John!

John provided our group with the perfect day! His vehicle was clean and comfortable. He picked us up at the port right on time and suggested our route to view the beautiful sights and countryside of the Inverness area. He was knowledgeable about the area and answered our many questions.........a true professional. Our day visiting the Scottish Highlands was perfect thanks to John.

Very pleasant and intelligent owner driver, who told us interesting stories about each of our tour destination stops. He had a very good sense of humor and knew the history of all our stops well. The countryside and views from the van were spectacular. The van was immaculate, up to date with technology and comfortable. We only had 4 in the van which could have sat 6 passengers plus the driver. Highlight was Cawdor Castle, small private castle in great shape, still lived in by owner. Thanks, John

Our tour of Inverness and surroundings was made so much better by our guide Jonny. He gave us a chance to see the Scottish countryside, it's people and even it's beloved Highland Cows. Who doesn't want to pet such a sweet creature? He included some things that we asked about and made the history of the area come to life. Very informative and excited about his country. Part of the reason we would like to return to Scotland. We'll be seeing you again, Jonny. Char and jim
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad that you enjoyed your tour hope you will come back and perhaps discover more of the highlands again sometime Thanks for the kind review Regards John M.
John picked us up at the Cruiseship Terminal. From the first moment we felt like beeing friends for a long time. He fullfilled every wish we had and he showed us his secret places, which we are sure are not easy to find. He brought us to Loch Ness for a short stop for lunch (which was very good). On our 12 days British Isles Cruise, this was the very best tour we have made. Thank you John for the beautiful memories!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review I am so pleased that you enjoyed your tour hope you will come back again Regards John

We had a wonderful day with John. He provided lively and interesting commentary about many of the sights we saw and the history of the region. The route was scenic and historic. I learned a lot without feeling like I was enduring a history lesson. We enjoyed each of the sites--sites that most of our fellow cruise passengers did not get to see--very much. Even the small farm with long-haired cows was charming. A highlight was actually seeing the Dowager Countess of Cawdor at the Cawdor Castle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer I am so pleased that you enjoyed your tour although I cannot ensure that you meet Lady Cawdor every time do come back again

John was friendly, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to make sure our group of five had a great day. He stayed with us beyond our appointed time to take us to one extra attraction that interested us. He gave us numerous tips for our remaining days in Scotland. All of highly recommend John.

John was a terrific tour guide. He was very professional, flexible and friendly. We asked to see a few places that were not on the schedule and John was so accommodating. He is knowledgeable and it's very evident how much he loves the area. The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful and we will remember the time we spent with John for many years to come.

John was extremely professional and knowledgeable. The tour was a good mix of sites and covered a lot of territory. His vehicle was very pleasant, especially since there is a lot of driving. We enjoyed our tour and would have no trouble recommending him to others.
