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 booked with Andrew for 2 different days during our cruise of the British Isles and it was the best 2 days of our trip. We wanted a glimpse of the tourist attractions but were more interested in the scenery and places the tourists don’t usually see. Andrew did not disappoint. His knowledge and love of Scotland is apparent right from the start and his sense of humor kept us all laughing. Scotland won my heart and I have Andrew to thank for it!

Andrew is simply an amazing guide. He picked us up and took us on a one of a kind all day tour. There was a storm coming in that kept closing places we wanted to visit. Andrew kept coming up with alternative places to visit. These places were off the beaten path and so interesting!
I can't say enough good things about Andrew! He is a great storyteller. I learned and laughed!

Andrew is knowledgeable, fun and not a d*ck 😂 (inside joke). We felt so blessed that we were in his care for three days in the Highlands as he made history come alive, showed us things we would never have found by ourselves or in a tour bus and was never intrusive or boring. His strengths include tailoring the itinerary to your needs. He picks the EXACT time to be at a destination without the crowds, is punctual and friendly. We can’t recommend him enough. Book him as your personal guide when in Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

Andrew was an excellent tour guide. We had a 2 day private tour with him. So knowledgeable and funny. If you are looking for someone to show you around Scotland, he won't disappoint. He truly knows his history. We even got to sample whiskey!

There aren’t enough stars to give Andrew, 5 is no meaty enough!! The tour was incredible. Of course the sights and the highlands are breathtaking and we went to unique places where there were no other tourists. But the reason why you want to book this tour is Andrew! He is hilarious, you won’t stop laughing. And he is one of those rare people you meet in the world who is full of a joy for life (and for Scotland), and a genuine good person. Also did I mention hilarious??! We already miss him! We learned and saw and laughed so much. He truly made our Scotland trip. Thank you Andrew!

What a great review. I’ll give you 5 stars for it. Wish I could give you 6 because 5 is just no meaty enough. Cheers for taking the time to write a review. Hopefully loads more folk that want to visit Scotland will just throw their money at me and ask me to show them around. Oh and I miss you too.

You must take a tour with Andrew! We went up into the Highlands and saw incredible scenery, an abandoned village, standing stones, and so much more. You will not only see amazing places but Andrew tells you the history and lore of all the places you go. He is a wonderful storyteller with a great sense of humor. His tour is the highlight of my trip! I feel I really got to see a part of Scotland only the locals generally see.

Andrew took a bunch of slightly mad Yorkshire girls around the beautiful sites of Scotland and survived. A fountain of knowledge and a friendly face we all had a great time. An asset to keeping scottish heritage alive and would highly recommend. Thank you Andrew and I dare say we will be back!

That day was a giggle from start to finish. I think I had more fun than all of you! For clarity though, I was driving for another company called Scottish Guided Tours and the owner Niall McOwen works tirelessly to ensure his clients are looked after, until I picked you all up. Then you all worked tirelessly to keep me laughing all day. It was a real pleasure and thank you for the lovely review. Andrew

Well to be honest it wasn’t great didn’t have the feel off a castle. Some interesting bits but have seen a lot better. One of the food places was ok but by the time you paid for the food it was cold and it was cold in there as well.
But we hadn’t been there before so the only really good thing I can say is the views where nice

We have never met or spoke or engaged in any way Samantha. You have never toured with me but if you had done I’m sure you would have had a fantastic time. I’m sure that this review is intended for Stirling Castles trip advisor page and not mine and I’ve contacted Trip Advisor about this review and they are refusing to remove it. Please Samantha, if you get an opportunity, could you delete this review. It’s simply in the wrong place.

It takes a gifted storyteller with an intimate knowledge of his country’s history — and a profound passion for his country — to enable a newcomer to experience Scotland in the broadest sense in a short period of time.

Andrew McIntyre is that person. With a mixture of kindness, sincerity, honesty, and an infectious sense of humor, this man is a born tour guide.

My sister and I spent four days touring The Isle of Skye with Andrew and always felt we were in capable hands. His expert driving skills were greatly appreciated as we were able to sit back and enjoy the impossibly beautiful scenery while listening to his tales. I had only a couple of things I absolutely wanted to see on this, my second trip, while my sister had many. Somehow, not only did Andrew remember all of our requests — and accomplish them — but also threw in a few surprises of his own. When weather concerns necessitated a change in plans, Andrew’s ability to quickly present a new agenda was impressive.

We will always appreciate the lengths to which Andrew went to make this tour unforgettable.

If you want a world-class tour guide who will leave you with cherished memories, Get Off the Beaten Path in Scotland with Andrew McIntyre. You will not be disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed Andrew’s guidance thru the Highlands and the Isle of Skye. He took us to places we never would have visited on our own and he provided amazing history and folk lore that truly made our adventure unique. He’s the real deal if you want an authentic Scottish experience.
