Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tom picked me and my daughter up from the train station & toured us in and around the Isle of Skye for 3 days and then drove us to Edinburgh while touring along the way. It has been the best part of our 2 week trip. We felt perfectly safe as two women traveling alone, as he was the perfect gentleman and a safe driver. Tom is an avid outdoorsmen, historian, and photographer which all combine to a great guide. He was able to teach my daughter who is an English major some Scottish literature history. He even bought her a book from a Scottish author he felt she would enjoy. He helped us both take better photos and we got some great shots. He was able to lead us on some hikes I probably would not have done if on our own. I told Tom our interests and left the itinerary to him and it was the perfect mix of well known and off the beaten path while willing to adapt to any wishes we found along the way. He even provided snacks. We had a blast.

I had limited time to see and photograph Glasgow so I contacted Tom to see if he could create a custom half-day tour for me. He was very prompt replying to my request and created a tour highlighting the best locations in Glasgow to photograph. His knowledge and enthusiasm for Glasgow's history comes through when you spend time with him. I enjoyed my experience and would highly recommend his services for anyone wanting to explore and photograph Glasgow.

We spent five magical days with Tom. From Edinburgh through Fort William and Glencoe to Loch Lomond and ended in Glasgow. Tom took care of our trip from every needed aspect: driving, guiding, food and even a coat for my husband when it too cold for him :)
Tom has broad knowledge of Scotland's history and geography and that contributed a lot to our experience. It was unforgettable and we can't wait to come back again to see more of Scotland with Tom.

We had a great walk with Tom through the East End. Lots of discussion about the history of Glasgow, hints for taking a Greta photograph.

Tom was aware we were interested in the street art as well, so made sure to show us some of art along our tour around the East End.

The great thing is he kept to outpace.

Throughly enjpyed the day.

Excellent day out. Tom had an interesting perspective on photography and a keen interest in local history. I could write a book if I remembered everything he said today! Wish I could take many day trips with him! Thanks Tom!

Really nice tour with not only nice spots for photography but also historically interesting spots we never would have seen otherwise.

Our tour guide was incredibly nice and customized the tour to what we were looking for. He was very dog friendly and taking the dog was no problem at all.

He also showed us some tips and tricks regarding photography that we will be able to use in the future.

All in all we can highly recommend booking a tour and will definitely do another when we come back.

Tom was a wonderful guide for my full day photo walk in Glasgow! He shared interesting historical insights as we walked famous sights. Additionally, Tom’s photo tips were great for a variety of subjects and lighting conditions. In addition to showing me not a few hidden and wonderful gems of the dear green city, Tom’s conversation and company were exemplary of the friendly and curious Glaswegian spirit. I highly recommend Photo Walk Scotland and hope to book an even longer trip with Tom’s company for my next trip to Scotland.

When we decided to see more of Scotland, our first call was to Tom at Photowalk Scotland. He had toured us around the Highlands and Glencoe in 2019 and we knew he was the right choice to see more of Scotland. Upon his recommendation, we boarded bus X62 in Edinburgh and rode through the scenic countryside for just over an hour to Peebles. Tom and his coworker Stewart were waiting at the Peebles Post Office bus stop and off we went. We spent two days exploring the Scottish Borders and then Tom returned us back to our hotel in Edinburgh. We visited the tiny Stobo Kirk chapel, Smailholm Tower and stopped to admire the stunning Scott’s View. We also visited the St Abbs Nature Reserve, Cove Harbour, and walked on a private beach with views of Bass Rock and Tantallon Castle. At one point during our tour as we wound our way through the countryside, we had to briefly stop to allow several sheep to move out of the road. Tom’s knowledge of Scottish history made the country come alive for us. We have always enjoyed how friendly the Scottish people are, but this trip really showed us how proud the Scots are of their history. After touring with Tom, we spent some time in Edinburgh and Glasgow but agreed that our time with Photowalk Scotland was the best part of our trip. We will definitely book with Tom again if we are able to return to Scotland.

Hi Vicki & Chuck, thank you so much for your very kind review. It was so nice to see you both again and Stewart and I thoroughly enjoyed showing you around another part of our wonderful wee country. We really were well off the beaten track and we are so pleased that you liked these lesser-known and remote areas. I have to say that i was particularly pleased to be able to locate a hairy coo for you..... Take care and best wishes. Tom

If everyone could have such a wonderful experience on a guided trip!!! Tom came highly recommended by a friend and I am so glad I took the leap of faith. He even offered to drive us to a spot when he would have returned us at 10:30 that night after driving all day. Nothing was too much to ask of him while he gave us treats all day to keep our energy levels up. These days it is hard to find ANYBODY so eager to please, plus we got the additional experience of having a professional photographer who not only took wonderful pictures of us, but also offered advice on how to improve mine (although lovingly given). When I come back, I will most definitely hire him again. Thank you, Tom, for making this the most wonderful trip — worth every penny and more!!
