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.

We chose Mary’s Meanders for our tour after many months of debating. Emma was our guide and she made feel like family. We were magically transported back in time and felt as if were part of the Outlander show. I will highly recommend Emma and Mary’s Meanders if you want to truly experience Scotland in a very unique way. Thank you Emma for making our trip so special! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was our first time to Scotland and Anne and Emma made this trip so magical. They were so warm and accommodating, we saw so many sites that were both historical as well as sites from Outlander, which made each location doubly cool to see. We were with them for the 3 day tour, and they were both very knowledgable as well with various facts and locations. After taking a large group bus tour to the highlands which was much more impersonal, it made me miss the personal touch with Anne and Emma! I would definitely come back to Scotland and take another tour with them, and anyone interested in a great tour of Scotland should absolutely book with them.

Our tour was absolutely incredible, better than anticipated!! We did the one day Outlander tour, which visited Blackness castle, Hopetoun house, Midhope castle, Doune castle and Culross. Our tour guide, Anne, was an absolute delight and was very knowledgeable on not just the history of the sites, but also other Scottish history in general and we learned so much!! If we’re back, I would do it all over again, and will recommend to anyone we know. ☺️

This was the best tour that we have ever experienced!!! We saw so much of Scotland and Outlander Locations. When I watch Outlander now, I can visualize actually being at Fort William, Culloden, Castle Leoch, Gardens of Versailles, Arsdmuir Prison, Inverness (Falkland), etc. When we visited Lallybroch, we entered into the Pigeon/Dove Building which was also shown in Season 7. We were also handfasted at Lallybroch. Even if you are not an outlander fan, the beauty of Scotland, its Historic Locations, food and even Hagis can be experienced within this tour. Mary and Emma are wonderful individuals and the evening entertainment at the cottages and the evening restaurants are fun, good and make you feel that you have experienced the true Scottish charm. Even though I have experienced this tour once; I would gladly go again.

Fantastic private Outlander tour with Anne. Got to see so many of my favourite spots from the series but what was even better was Anne’s rich knowledge of Scottish history that she was able to share about each site we visited. My husband and 15 year old son have never seen Outlander and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks to Emma for making the tour easy to book. Would highly recommend.

In lieu of a shore excursion, we opted for arranging a private tour when in the Edinburgh/South Queensferry Port. Emma was sensational. Taking our vision and planning a great day of sites in Stirling - which included lunch at Portcullis and a kilt fitting at House of Henderson. Last by not least, the Kelpies and Midhope Castle (from Outlander)!! Give her a call ... you won't be disappointed.
PS thanks Bill for driving! Worst weather in 40 years we were told (which did not dampen our spirits) and he kept us safe and on track.

We went on three different tours with Mary Meanders and all of them were absolutely amazing. The guides were all very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable about the sites and history. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an affordable and personalized experience.

We did a private tour with Gemma and it was all of my Scottish Outlander dreams come true. This tour was truly the highlight of our whole trip to Scotland. Best company, best experience. Thank you Mary Meanders!

We had a lovely 2 days with Anne on our Ancestry tour. It was so exciting to visit places my husband's ancestors lived, worked, and attended church. Our customized tour took us to the borders, a couple Outlander locations, St. Andrews, Dundee, and Kirriemuir. We had so much fun exploring and we saw so much! We would definitely recommend an Ancestry tour with Mary's Meanders.
