John M "Jonny" gave me exactly the day I wanted in the Highlands -- a taste of what the region is like on my first visit. He was beyond accommodating in answering my (many) question and following a route that often went off the beaten track. It was a day I will long remember. And when I return, I will be asking John for touring to many more specific spots to experience much more of what the beautiful Highlands have to offer

John was incredible! I absolutely loved our tour of the Isle. He was open to what we wanted to see, and at the same time he crafted the day into an efficient route with many more things added in. He shared many fun facts with us and helped us learn about the isle's history. I would absolutely recommend John to anyone visiting the Isle of Skye.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tess Glad that you enjoyed your thanksgiving vacation do come back again so that I can show so much more that the Highlands and islands have to offer John

We first booked John for a tour of the Isle of Skye. We had such a great time and were very impressed with John's knowledge, we decided to book him again for a tour of Inverness and the surrounding area four days later. Luckily, John was available. We gave him a list of some sights we wanted to visit and trusted him enough to suggest other sights. We were not disappointed. Again, John was wonderful and knowledgeable and we had a great time. I would highly recommend John!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You were all great fun for the day Thanks for the nice review John

We booked John for a tour of the Isle of Skye. John was a great guide! He was very accommodating and picked us up at our house and dropped us off at our front door. He was very knowledgeable and shared much information about Skye and Scotland (past and present). I would recommend John and if I ever return to the Highlands, I will use his services again. Thanks, John!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely to meet you and your family.. Hope your mother enjoyed her 80th birthday Thank you for the kind review Haste ye back John

Amazing day with custom tour by John. Highlights were the walk to the Gorge, the countryside, the Gairloch Museum and lunch "by the sea" at The Sheiling Restaurant. We didn't see a large tour bus all day. Delightful!

What a fantastic day we had with John! We saw everything we wanted to see and more. John was personable, knowledgable, organized and very flexible. The stop at Clava Cairns was amazing and is a MUST on any tour of the area. John was very informative when explaining the site and made the experience that much more interesting. We highly recommend a tour with John if you want to learn a lot about the Inverness area. We would definitely seek out a tour with John again if we are in that area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leanne it was a pleasure to show you the Highlands.. do come back again to see more of the Highlands Regards John

It's evident that John is passionate about his country, and it made our tour come alive. If you have an opportunity to visit the battlefield and museum at Culloden, it is very educational and very moving. If we return to Scotland, we wold love to meet John again for our tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marjorie So glad that you enjoyed the tour.. it would be a pleasure to show you more of the Highlands if you return John

We enjoyed a wonderful tour with John. He was very knowledgeable about the Isle of Skye and Portree, extremely personable, and entertaining. All three of us had wonderful tour and would highly recommend John as a tour guide. One of us had a leg injury and John was very accommodating with help getting in and out of the vehicle. His attentiveness was greatly appreciated.

Once we met John, we wondered about a former Liverpool resident as a guide in Scotland. But, his 12 years in Scotland have honed his knowledge about the country. He guided us six seniors thru the beautiful countryside with lots of stops and stories...even a photo with Nessie (the only plastic tourism part of our trip).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Maureen Glad you enjoyed the tour you were all great fun lots of jokes along the way it was a pleasure to show you the Highlands hope to see you again for more laughs some day Regards John

John provided a great tour. He has a wonderful spirit and knows a lot of interesting things about Skye. I never would have been able to get as much out of a day if I were trying to see all we saw on my own. He is extremely professional and was able to understand the things that were the most important so that we were able to work them in. Don't hesitate to work with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Nate glad you had a great time and that you got some good photographs It was a pleasure to show you the isle of Skye

My Sisters and I signed up for the History Tour. It was absolutely fantastic. I would recommend it again and again for anyone traveling to Inverness. Our guide was prompt. He picked us up at the home we were staying at. He made us feel very comfortable. He answered all of our questions and gave us so much information. When we got to Culloden it was pouring rain. Our guide was thoughtful enough to supply us with umbrellas so we were able to walk out onto the battlefield. A truly memorable experience
