Have used Craig three times, and each time the trip has been flawless. He is very knowledgeable about Scotland past and present, and he is personable, adapting himself to the personality and pace of each group. I always recommend him to anyone thinking about going to Scotland, whether they know where they want to go or just want someone to choose the highlights and drive them around because you get the flexibility of a self-drive tour without the hassle of driving (especially harrowing if you live outside of the UK).

Our Crown Princess tour group of 8 enjoyed a full sightseeing day out of our port of Greenock conducted by owner/operator Craig McCall Flynn. Craig provided excellent local information - great sightseeing - on time pick-up and return to the ship in the comfort of his mini van. The highlight of the day was the famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo which was an outstanding event with great weather. We highly recommend Craig's Mini Tour for your UK & Ireland vacation plans. FJG

On Friday, 5 August, my wife and I had a one-day tour with Craig of of Mini Tours Scotland. Our tour was perhaps unusual in that I had mapped out a very specific itinerary for Craig to follow, an itinerary that went to a number of places important to my family history.

We had a full day of visiting sites throughout Lanarkshire and West Lothian. Craig was wonderful. He was friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable, a good navigator, and a careful driver. He enhanced the trip with his knowledge of the area and the roads. We had a fun time picnicking at Bothwell Castle. He (and my wife) was also quite patient as I visited my family's old homesteads in Shotts. Breich Water, and Carluke.

We had a wonderful day with Craig, and we would recommend his services to anyone visiting Scotland.

We spent a memorable day with Craig who took a group of us to see as much as we could fit into about eight hours. He was very knowledgeable about his country's history and the places we visited, and he introduced us to the beauty of Scotland in a way that we won't forget. He was very flexible and willing to do anything we wanted to do, and when we didn't have a long wish list he designed a day that gave us a variety of experiences. A tour with Craig anywhere in his part of the world will be well worth your time and money.
