Absolutely fantastic tour. Fraser castle is amazing, well in-depth tour and a nice place to visit. Glen Garioch is a gem with absolutely outstanding tour providing loads of information and a beautiful whiskey to taste. But the best part of the tour was the guide, Jacqueline who was absolutely amazing throughout the entire trip. She was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly and was a wonderful guide. Could've easily cancelled the trip as I was the only one who booked but instead gave me a sort of "private tour". Her kindness and excellence made this tour all the more enjoyable, would definitely book again if I return.

Thank you so much for your review. It was nice to be able to show you some of the unscheduled sights and stops we made. I hope you warmed up eventually after having a bright but very cold day. :-)

I was lucky enough to join Jacqueline's Food Tour around Aberdeen City Centre and it was a fantastic experience.
A bonnie day to walk around the glistening granite city, tasting tempting regional morsels along the way, from 'butteries' to gin cocktails and all that's in between, with a slice of local history along the way.
Be sure to wear an elasticated waistband and skip the breakfast beforehand, as you will be surely 'full up' or 'stappit foo' (in the Doric), by the end of the tour.
An absolutely fabulous day out and one I would be keen to repeat and recommend to others.

Thank you so much for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and the food on offer, definitely a great way to experience Aberdeen. As you know, there are plenty of other places still to explore so if you join us again we can visit some of the others.

Booked the “folklore and legends” tour a little at the last minute and Jacqueline phoned the morning of the tour to check with us -- apparently there had been a mixup with the system and she did not receive confirmation of the tour until checking that morning. Not to worry: she told us she would happy to run the tour but would just be a little late, given the mixup (which was no problem for us).
The tour itself was super interesting, visiting some sites that would be difficult to get to otherwise (without a car of our own). Jacqueline was super friendly and really knew her stuff. She even found time to take us on a little side-tour to one of the castles (Tolquhon) when it turned out that we were making our way through the rest of the sites faster than anticipated. All in all, a great day!

Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to be on tour with your family and I'm very happy that you enjoyed your tour despite the slight hiccup to start, which we've fixed now! :-) I hope the rest of your visit was just as good.

I booked a day tour with Grampian Escapes & Tours and it was the highlight of my weekend to Aberdeen with friends. Jacqueline was very responsive and we designed our tour together over a couple of emails. Jacqueline was also our tour guide and was very friendly and knowledgeable. She knew all the best stoping points and recommended an excellent cafe in Braemar for lunch. Would definitely take another tour with this company when I return to Aberdeen.
