“A Scottish Treasure”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Touring Scotland with Bruce Telford as our guide ranks as one of the most enjoyable times we've ever had on a vacation. From the time he picked us up at the airport until he dropped us off at our doorstep in Edinburgh a week later, our journey through Scotland was filled with wonderful sights, fascinating stories, great music, wee pubs, and loads of laughter. What great fun!
And let me tell you, this was the way to go. With Bruce as trip planner and driver, we were free to enjoy each moment, and to see and do things we wouldn't have done had we been on our own. Yes, we had a daily schedule, but with Bruce, we had the flexibility, within reason, to change things on the fly. For example, I learned just before we left home that my great grandfather served with the 78th Highlanders at Fort George, and with a few adjustments to our plan, we were able to spend as long as we liked touring the fort and the fantastic regimental museum there.
Aside from his fine driving skills and his professionalism as a guide, what came through most strongly is Bruce's great good humor and the joy with which he shared his knowledge and love of Scotland. Probably the most telling reference we could give is that by the second day, we were already planning where we could travel with Bruce on our next trip.

“Could not have been better”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

My partner and I toured Scotland and the Lake District with Bruce in October. Travelling with a 3 month old baby we were prepared for some tough times but this was not the case. Bruce was extremely well prepared with a great baby capsule which made the trip easy from the start. Bruce was incredibly knowledgable and an excellent guide. He was also very amusing and personable and we could not have felt more at home. Every element of our trip was wonderful - the locations he had chosen for us (with a special request to include castles), the accommodation, meal stops were all fantastic. We greatly enjoyed sharing a 'wee dram' in the evenings and were very sad to leave. I highly recommend Bruce's tours for anyone planning a trip to Scotland or nearby areas.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Our Family went on the four night five day tour of Scotland. We have three kids (14, 12, and 8). Bruce tailored the tour to show the kids the different Harry Potter filming locations around Scotland, knowing they were big Harry Potter fans. Bruce's knowledge of the countryside, the landforms and the history was amazing. Our hikes through this tour were exactly appropriate for our kids and their ages. Nothing was too difficult and everyone loved the site seeing. Bruce is very personable, friendly and funny. We are would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Bruce for your hospitality and love of Scotland. We had a great time!

“Just Like Travelling with Family”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Excellent driving skills - extremely personable and funny. Shared jokes and unplanned adventures along the ten day journey to both Scotland and Ireland. By the end of the trip
we felt like he was a member of our family. He was professional throughout the trip, yet related
well to the two generations that travelled with him on this trip. We would contract with him again
on any driving trip to Europe that he would undertake - his Range Rover is very comfortable
and handled four in our party plus large baggage.

“Great Trip to Scotland with Bruce”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We have just spent a week with Bruce travelling through Scotland. The trip was first class and Bruce's knowledge and care and attention was amazing. We didn't ask a question he couldn't answer. We saw some amazing sites that he specially chose for us including; Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sterling, Isle of Skye, Inverness, Pitlochry, St. Andrews and many fantastic sites in between. Bruce's great personality made our trip even better. We would definitely travel with him again and consider him our new friend.
