My husband and I returned home a week ago from touring beautiful Scotland with Craig. About a year ago, I spend hours researching private guides, and after reading his reviews on this board (Thank you!), we contacted him. Craig answered our emails promptly. He is very well organised and knowledgeable. Craig narratives are fluid, at times making references to information previously shared, painting a perfect tableau. Most of all, he is one great person!

Craig took our must do (Rosslyn Chapel, Argyll region, history, off the beaten path/make us discover your country), added surprises and made us fall in love with the people, the history and the scenery. We rate this vacation the best out of ten visited countries, mainly due to Craig’s mastery and passion! When we visit more of the UK and Ireland, he will be our guide.

We spent the day with Craig on a one day tour to Linlithgow Palace, Stirling Castle, Glen Eagles Golf Club (home of the upcoming 2014 Ryder Cup) and saw some of Edinburgh's highlights on the way out of and back into town. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and very friendly which made for a memorable day for our family of six. He has a deep understanding of the history of Scotland and where to find some of the less well known beautiful spots. We highly recommend him but you do need to book weeks or months in advance as he is highly sought after by tourists from around the globe!

I recently hired Craig for a tour and I am glad I did. I gave him general ideas of things I would like to see, and I saw all of them and more. He had a few surprise places to visit too that were excellent. Craig knows his history and the area so he can give you lots of information and local color during your trip. The schedule was great - packed with things to do but plenty of time to really see each site without being rushed. The mini bus was comfortable and clean, and Craig is a pro. I will definitely use Mini Day Tours of Scotland for future visits to the UK.

My boyfriend and I toured Scotland with Craig in the beginning of June. He picked us up at our hotel, collected our bags, and drove us to tons of castles, beautiful scenery, and delicious restaurants. Craig is extremely knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and just an all around great person. I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. If you're going to Scotland, I highly recommend touring with Craig for at least part of your trip, if not all.

One day tour is a really good way to see Scotland.
We came for a long weekend so did not have too much time on our hands. We took a tour that covered Glasgow, highlands, Loch Ness and other places on our way. The guide was brilliant, very friendly and knowledgable man. He played scottish tunes all the way which really brought us into mood.
