This tour was a definitive highlight of my stay in Aberdeen! Jacqueline was so knowledgeable and friendly and helped me get a more 'real' taste of Aberdeenshire. The small group was intimate and a nice change from the large day tour groups I've joined before. Plus she gave great tips for other things to do and see for the rest of my stay and pointed me in the right direction for a truly local dinner experience you wouldn't find yourself. I'd definitely consider her other tours when I eventually make my way back to Aberdeen!

Jacqueline couldn’t have been more patient and helpful. She is full of the local knowledge and took us too some places of interest. Stopped for
Lunch at Braemar. Most places seem to be a little under staffed so had to wait for food. Food was good though.

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. Unfortunately staff shortages are a challenge this year and we do like to support local business, so we'll allow plenty of time for lunch in order not to rush. Thanks for the feedback.

On a short break to Aberdeen and decided to experience a bit of local culture and cuisine.
Jacqueline made it a really memorable experience with lots of local history and some great food. The "Butteries" were a new taste to us but were a great mix with some fab local strawberries. The local ice cream and the "Cullen Skink" were top class.
A great evening and the time just flew.
Will definitely look to use Grampian again when we return.

Jacqueline was the perfect guide; enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very happy to customise the day round my personal interests. We focused on several lighthouses round the NE Aberdeenshire coast including the oldest in Scotland at Kinnaird, as well as having time for the Scottish Lighthouse museum nearby. It was great that we were able to include a visit to the seabird cliffs at Bullers of Buchan where we were rewarded by excellent views of nesting kittiwakes. There was even time to visit Newburgh to looks for seals.
