What a lovely tour. Small group so easy to listen and ask questions. Saw the castle from far away and up close. Learned all about the history of Loch Ness and Nessie, with lots of detail preparing us for our stop to the exhibition centre.

You may want to reach out to them directly at their website. You can easily find their site by googling "Castle Cruises Loch Ness". They have a "Contact Us" page with an enquiry form.
