Owner description: The Waterways Tour is an Adult only guided cycle tour on flat cycle paths, canal towpaths and some minor roads. We use comfortable cruiser bikes which are easy to ride. Our tour takes us out of the city as we ride along the River Ness going through the beautiful Ness Islands then we will stop for 20 minutes at the Inverness Botanical Gardens before we ride along the world famous Caledonian Canal viewing the stairway locks at Muirtown therafter we head through the only nature reserve in the Highlands hopefully seeing otters, dolphins and interesting birds before heading back along the River Ness to the city. Distance covered 10km. Duration 2 hours.

I took this tour early in my stay and would recommend others do the same! You'll see things outside the city center that you wouldn't have seen otherwise. I'm an out of practice rider due to an injury in years past, but Alison was very kind and kept things safe.

For our last day in Inverness, my daughter and I went on the bike tour and it was just like the other reviewers said: simply wonderful! Lots of information, beautiful scenery and places you just wouldn't be able to discover on your own. We particularly liked the botanical gardens (highly recommended, it was hard to leave). Our only regret is that we didn't do the bike tour on the first day we arrived, so we could go back to some of the places we visited. Now we'll have to return to Inverness...

My husband and I did the Waterways tour in the afternoon. It was an easy, pleasant ride with lots of beautiful nature and interesting historical tidbits provided by a very knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. Alison took us to beautiful parts of Inverness we would never have found on our own. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience. Fun tour. Very informational-history and nature. Loved the stop at the botanical gardens. The ness Isle part was my favorite. Bikes are in great condition and helmets are provided. The guide is fun, polite, and concerned for our safety at all times. Very reasonably priced and easy to find. Definitely worth it.

Wonderful bike tour through Inverness...got to see areas outside the city center! The sights included a beautiful wooded park, the botanical garden, and biking along the river and canal as well as the nature preserve along the bay. Allison was a friendly informative tour guide. The ride was not strenuous..a relaxing journey!
