On a somewhat rainy morning, my girlfriend and I embarked on what we thought to be a group adventure: discovering the coastal villages of Scotland's northeast coast. Travelling before the main season starts (i.e. late March) we had the amazing opportunity to have our guide Alex all to ourselves. What a pleasure that was! Alex is incredibly knowledgeable, and we were delighted to dive deep into this beautiful but a little of the track region. While I discussed the ins and outs of history, agriculture and industry with Alex, my girlfriend took many amazing photos of the little fishing villages -and of much more. We would have never been able to have these experiences on our own and cannot recommend Alex and Grampian Tours enough. Thank you Alex!

Big shout out to Alex from Grampian Escapes and Tours for my tour of Aberdeenshire today. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative day, topped off with a visit to the iconic Dunnottar Castle. Highly recommended.

Jacqueline (guide) provided a superb service and day out! The tour went on even though only 2 people have booked. Jacqueline gave a lot of insights about the culture and history of the places we went to and she also brought along a great variety of local food to try. I really enjoyed the trip!

first foray into a guided tour alone. what a fantastic initiation! from the moment of arrival until the final farewell, Alex (our host par excellence) felt like a lifetime friend. his knowledge and interest was captivating. our visit to Balmoral and various points throughout the Royal Dee were worth every moment of our day. hope to return some day to experience more of the Highlands! thank you, Grampian Escapes, for such a memorable experience!
