Ian made our trip go from really good to fantastic! His ability to be flexible with a group of sisters who would, and often did, change their minds sometimes from one stop to the next was awesome. We felt that he became a part of our group instead of just a tour guide. He was fun, funny, knowledgeable, entertaining and comfortable to be with. His ability to be flexible also made our trip exactly what he promised before we ever got there, all about us.
Half way thru our trip we took a couple days to ourselves and rented a car to explore a bit on our own. When Ian picked us back up at the huge car rental drop off the day after and found out that we had already covered the things he'd planned for us, it was not a big deal. He found several more options and again tailored the day around us.
He covered all the details!! If there was anything that he could do to make our trip more enjoyable, if he knew about it and could do it, it happened. From the little things like making sure everyone was actually in the photos, to ensuring we were all laughing when the 'flash' went put off, or picking up candy only sold in Europe at ASDA-MART's... To the the big things such as making sure we got to places on time, pointing out the important landmarks and bridges, finding places to exchange money and many more on both ends of the spectrum to numerous to list.
He made his country come alive by showing us its beauty and telling us his stories. When we were with him he let us know that it was his job to worry and ours to have fun. It was a fantastic trip one we will never forget! The only regret we have is that we didn't let him handle all the arrangements from the beginning and then left it up to him, which would have insured that we saw and experienced all the best. I highly recommend Ian and Stravaigin-Scotland.com tours for a very fun and worry/stress free vacation. We hope to return some day to Scotland and when we do we will definitely book with Ian. Thank you Ian for being a great part of our trip and making those parts some of the best!! Until next we meet :-)
