BEST TOUR COMPANY we have dealt with in a while. We went to a couple distilleries and out the Inverness/Loch Ness, with a good drive through the Highlands. Definitely knowledgable about the area. Paul, driver/owner is personable and also reads his clients well. It was nice to have a driver that can share information along a winding drive, but also respect the quiet moments when we chose to nod off. As we were traveling during the Pandemic, it is also nice to note that the company had a reasonable idea of what was open or not, and the driver alway work mask. The vehicle was very clean and we felt safe.

We booked a day tour - Beautiful Braveheart. Paul picked us up from our hotel in St. Andrews in a very comfortable van. We visited Campbell castle, and Paul gave us some wonderful background on the site and mentioned the things not to miss and let us explore on our own. Next on our tour, we passed the William Wallace monument and Paul again did not disappoint to provide historically accurate information on this man that is known to us Americans, only from Mel Gibson's "account" in Braveheart. We stopped at Stirling castle and again, Paul provided us with some idea of how best to explore the castle, the "not to miss" things and let us spend our time exploring. He offered the guided tour but we opted to take it in on our own. We finished the day with a drive by of Dounne Castle...Paul explained the pop culture significance of this castle, Monty Python and Outlander...we opted to skip the tours and went to Deanston distillery instead and were not disappointed. Paul has a wonderful personality and great amount of knowledge about Scotland. We definitely will take another tour with Paul when we return to Scotland.

My wife, her parents, and myself booked a 4 night 5 day tour with Paul a few weeks ago. We were doing a trip of the UK and really wanted to explore the Scottish Highlands without driving ourselves on the wrong side of the road into an accident! He picked us up from our hotel in Edinburgh in the morning. We then proceeded to stay off the major highways for the majority of our trip until we were dropped off at the Inverness Airport 5 days later. Paul catered the tour to our interests keeping us off the beaten bath and through the Scottish country side. We went from Edinburgh to the Isle of Mull on the first day staying at a charming bed and breakfast in Tobermory, a small fishing village, overlooking the harbor. Paul made multiple stops at lochs, standing stones, and castle ruins along the way. His knowledge of Scottish history and way of life was astounding. Rarely was he not able to answer our questions. A storm blew in on the isle so our day at sea whale watching was cancelled, but that didn't stop Paul from giving us a wonderful tour around the island. We then took the fairy back to Oban to spend our second night. Paul then drove us up the west coast of Scotland to Inverness stopping to see Glencoe, the Harry Potter viaduct and train, Loch Ness, and multiple castle ruins along the way. We then stayed in Inverness for our last 2 nights in Scotland. Paul picked us up both mornings. We toured Craggenmore distillery, highlands Zoo, Chanonry point, Fort George, a sheep dog demonstration, Culloden, castles, and standing stones over our last 2 days. By the end of the trip Paul had become a true friend and a member of our clan. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and is a phenomenal tour guide. We wouldn't have seen half of the things we did in Scotland if it wasn't for him. We will recommend him to all of our friends/family, and if we ever get back to beautiful Scotland we will definitely use his services again. P.S. Paul you were right. We enjoyed our time in Scotland more than any other part of our trip. It truly is the jewel of the UK! Cheers!

J, Thanks so much for this FAB review. The tour seems like ages ago but still fresh in mind and I hope you have lasting memories from it too. No doubt you will recall the excitement on Mull and the little tree diversion etc Ha Ha.. we live to tell the tale and it was a real pleasure showing you and the folks around Scotland. Best regards to you and the folks Kind Regards Paul

totally agree with Amber F the previous reviewer. Now having seen all the homes of the Royals this was definitely at the top of the list for my friend and I. Easy to get to by bus. Tourist Information were first class giving us all the information to get there which was a great help also.
