We went on one of Donald's Tours around Ayr in July 2009 and we found this a wonderful experience as he so looks like Rabbie Burns. He as a great sense of humour tells some great tales about the bard and the history of Ayr. A good few hours of fun. from the Mackies of Berwick-upon-tweed

Having lived in Ayr all my life I wanted to give my visiting friends a tour of my beautiful town.... I can't thank Donald enough for the fantastic day and the information of my birth town that I never knew.
Donald's enthusium for Ayrshire and everything Burns is infectious, we all had a most wonderful time.

Thank you Donald.

Kindest regards
Archie

Great day out and very informative, I almost thought I was with Robert Burns at one point, Donald's relaxed delivery had us eager to find out more about the "Ayrshire Bard"

You'd think it was actually him - just like in the paintings, it's an uncanny resemblance as we listened to Donald throughout the tour. A bit more Grecian 2000 might do the trick though, Burns was only 37 when he died!

The tour was both informative and amusing - obviously a lot of research has gone into Donald's work - I'd no idea that Tam o'Shanter was Irish.

I'd recommend the tour to anyone with Scots blood in their veins, or anybody else for that matter!
