I wasn't sure what to expect, but it exceeded my expectations!

Great small group and a comfortable vehicle for an all day trip! Alex was a lovely guide & provided the perfect amount of information on each location and places in between. We were taken to breath-taking cliffs with sea views and pristine beaches that were stunning!

A perfect day!

This was my first tour with Grampian, i would highly recommend their small group tours. Alex was very knowledgeable of the area/fishing villages that we toured and c was great to talk to about anything.

Fantastic day out at Balmoral.
We received a warm welcome at our meeting point in Aberdeen by our friendly tour guide Alex. There was a small group of 7 of us. Alex was very chatty and gave us a great deal of history and interesting information about the area. We stopped off at The Falls of Feugh on our way up to Balmoral and at Tomnavarie Stone Circle and the Queen’s View on the way back after a couple of hours stop-off at Balmoral Castle (which you need to buy a separate ticket for to get in the castle/grounds) We enjoyed lunch in the local town of Ballatar, where the Royal’s would do their shopping.
We had a wonderful time,
arriving back in Aberdeen at about 4.30. We would highly recommend this tour if you want to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery.

We had a great day exploring some of the historic and significant sites around Aberdeenshire with Jacqueline.

We took the Heritage and Folklore tour and for us it was a perfect balance of site, information and landscape. We really felt we gained a greater understanding of how these sites and monuments expressed the history and people of the region and, especially, how they interacted with the landscape around them.

There were some nice moderately challenging walks and a good opportunity for lunch. We ended tired and happy having enjoyed the tour, the area and the history, as well as Jacqueline's guiding and company.

I recommend the company and the tour.
