“Perfect half day tour with Paul”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We arrived early in the am in Dundee by train and were met by Paul at the station. Had an informative tour of Dundee and a stop at Broughty Castle, a fortress castle and museum with a view of the Firth of Tay. Then we were off through the back roads and lovely countryside to Glamis Castle. Pronounced Glams by the locals ( in the UK they choose not to pronounce certain letters and we never knew which ones to omit). The guided tour of Glamis was at our expense but well worth it, after which Paul took us on a tour of the gardens. There is a cafe in the castle which was very nice also. The trip back to Dundee took us high up over the city for more great views. We said goodby to Paul and he left us at the Discovery museum which is right across from the train. All this in just a bit more than a half day and then back to Edinburgh in time for dinner.

“Wonderful memories created”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

My family and I found Paul through trip advisor and are so happy we did! From the booking process to the tour itself, Paul was a pleasure. He gave exactly the tour we asked for, was flexible when we changed our minds. He was a wealth of information. It was truly a positive experience and we got to see so much of Scotland during our time with Paul. Paul's pricing was reasonable, the vehicle was clean, and he was a wonderful tour guide. We could not have been happier. Thank you Paul for all the great memories.

“Perfect day”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Inspite of a change in our arrival date...Paul met us first thing in the morning. His sense of humor, knowledge of the area, patience and a roomy, clean van made for a memorable day. The four of us were non stop with questions and obsevations..I know we put him to the test...We have booked many tours on line...The day we spent with Paul ranks as one of the best.

“Glamis Castle PLUS!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Paul greeted us promptly at our location in Dundee. The van is comfortable and extremely clean!
Paul's knowledge of the town and surrounding areas was fantastic! Our main destination of Glamis Castle was so impressive, and the Castle itself didn't disappoint. With Paul's great time keeping we managed to see the impressive town of Glamis plus great views of Dundee as well.Thank you Paul!

“Half-Day Fishing Villages”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We had a great morning touring the small villages from our starting point in St. Andrews. Paul was informative and relaxed....he let us set our own pace and sought to point out things that were of interest to us. It was a great experience.
