My brother and I were looking for a 5 day bespoke tour of Scotland, and spoke with several companies who sought to fit us into their pre-scheduled tour options. Archie’s approach was unique and refreshing – he actually built the tour around us!
During the planning phase Archie focused solely on our preferences – everything from our favorite whiskies, to types of accommodation. Archie then reverted with a couple of proposals – which we were able to consider and then further discuss with him. Once we’d agreed on the schedule, Archie was prompt and efficient with all of the supporting administration.
We chose the option of having Archie as our personal driver – a true masterstroke. During the tour itself, Archie came into his own. His planning was exceptional, yet he still had the flexibility to adjust our program as appropriate. An example of this was when Archie took into account the (unusually) excellent weather and proposed a detour – on one of the most spectacular drives we’ve ever seen.
Having 5 days in Scotland, with Archie, was a privilege. He introduced us to scenery, distilleries, restaurants and people that we would not have found in any guidebook. Archie is like the old friend that you reach out to when visiting a city - in the know on local history, activities, bars and authentic restaurants and of course is great to spend a few days hanging out with! He’s professional, intuitive and energizing – we recommend him without hesitation. We’re already looking forward to our next trip!
