      Breathtaking Castles, authentic lunch experience and excellent Whisky tour with an amazing Guide!

      Malcom is the man! He's incredibly knowledgeable about Scottish history and takes time to share it as makes sense along the trip. We got so much done during this trip. It was a perfect introduction to Scotland and he even gave us tips where to find dinner and a wee drink after the tour as well. If you book one trip while in Scotland, book with Malcolm!

      Es hat alles super geklappt. Waren mit unseren Oldies (84/86) auf der AiIDA Schottland Tour unterwegs und suchten nach einer individuellen Rundtour ohne die Menschenmassen. Malcolm war unser Guid. Nur zu empfehlen. Von Anfang an hat er sich um alles gekümmert und ist auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen. Auch auf den Wunsch eines deutschsprachigen Dolmetscher konnte Malcom lösen. Hier danke an Martina :-). Zum Mittagessen waren wir in einem typischen schottischen Pub. Auch das Whisky Tasting in Royal Lochnagar Distillerie war ein Highlight. Können die Tour uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
      Response from Host, May 2023
      Wir freuen uns, dass Sie Ihre Zeit in Aberdeen genossen haben und hoffentlich sehen wir uns wieder. Ich hoffe, der Rest Ihrer Kreuzfahrt war schön. Danke Malcolm
