    William_C, Aug 2023
    Seeing the old course at Saint Andrews was our primary reason for the tour. Also learning more about the history of the area was interesting. Stuart was a good guide. He let us set the agenda of things we wanted to see and kept us moving along to maximize what we were able to see in the time we had.

    Private St. Andrew’s Tour
    Roger_H, Aug 2023
    My wife and I and my son (20 years old) went on this tour with our private driver, named Joe. Our driver showed up on time and was very courteous and informative. He was also able to adapt our tour to what we wanted to do. The St. Andrew’s tour was our favorite.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Hello Roger We’re so happy to hear this. Joe already said he had a brilliant day with you! Many thanks for your lovely review. Means a lot to us!! Many kind regards Beryl

    Cynthia_L, Jul 2023
    Our guide Stuart gave us a day to remember! He made sure that the golf lover in our group had time to enjoy being at St. Andrews - even arranged lunch for us there. He also made sure that the water lover had time to see one of the fishing villages. So glad we arranged this tour.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Hello Cynthia, We are so glad to hear you had a great time. Yes we really wanted to make sure everyone in the group would get to see what was important to them! :) Have a lovely onward trip. Stuart says hi! Beryl

    Fantastic experience and highly recommend Sean!
    Candace_M, May 2023
    Sean was the perfect guide for this excursion! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and great at responding to questions. He met us at the port and took us to the places that were a must for us to see. Plus showed us a couple of charming fishing villages. We all highly recommend this excursion with Sean!
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Thank you soooo much for this lovely review. Sean had a great time. Safe onward travels! And maybe see you again! Beryl
    Very enjoyable, informative, and worth the time and money!
    Letha_J, May 2023
    Friendly driver, very informative, and made the trip comfortable and fun. Loved the stop in Falkland and the history of it. St. Andrew's was the best. Picture on the bridge a highlight as well as eating at the club house. Walking around the university and through the church was fascinating. Loved his stories about the place. The stop at the distillery was fun and very enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to anyone into golf, history, scenery, and fun.
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Hi Letha thank you so much for your kind words. Sean thoroughly enjoyed the day with you too! And yes Fife and St. Andrews is something right? Beryl
    Great day
    Gary_S, Dec 2022
    We enjoyed the trip very much. Sean was very informative and shared a lot of interesting information. The drive was very scenic, and St. Andrews is beautiful.
    Response from Host, Dec 2022
    Thanks Gary Was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. Merry Christmas! Sean
    Awesome tour driver, fantastic tour.
    John_S, Sep 2022
    The entire trip exceeded our expectations. From the time we met Sean in port we felt like we were traveling with an old friend. His knowledge about the history of the Kingdom of Fife and his personalized service while we visited Saint Andrews was perfectly explained where we could appreciate the information without being overwhelmed. Sean and Beryl were in constant contact with us and replied to our emails, text and calls within minutes. We have traveld to several countries and have used private tour guides however, Sean and Beryl were the best.
    Response from Host, Sep 2022
    Awww. It’s so nice to read this!!! And yes to us this kind of customer service is the most important and most enjoyable part of running a small tour business. We truly enjoy meeting our guests and hearing their stories as much as we love to talk about Scotland! :)) So glad to hear you enjoyed your day with Sean! He very much enjoyed his tour with you too! All the best and safe onwards travels!!! Beryl
    Pleasurable afternoon
    Susan_D, Aug 2022
    we enjoyed our visit to Faukland to see share parts of Outlander were filmed. We has a wonderful lunch in St. Andrews overlooking the golf course. Our guide Sean was very a fun and informative guide who patiently answered all our questions.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Thank you for your kind words. We’re so glad you enjoyed your day. Sean loves talking about movies and Scotland’s awesome film locations. So yes he’ll never tire answering any questions. Cheers Beryl (&Sean).
    Lovely Day Trip from Edinburgh
    mmf2018, Sep 2019
    We toured with Beryl, who is personable, experienced and knowledgeable. We chose to begin our day at Scone Palace, which is very worth the diversion, no matter what your interests may be. We found St. Andrews rich in history, but did not need to spend much time there. We saw the golf course by car, but you can get out and visit the new club house, if you want. The abbey, castle and university are interesting (particularly the university chapel), but the town is small and you don't need more than 2 hours to walk through it and see everything, even if you listen to the audio tour of the castle (recommended.) The last part of the journey,, driving through the fishing villages of Fife, was lovely!
    Response from Host, Sep 2019
    Thank you so much for your lovely words, Monica. It was a pleasure touring with you. You had such an interest in everything. It was delightful. I’m glad we managed to show you what you came here for! :))
    Beyond Expectations
    Joan_B, Jul 2019
    Our guide Sean was fantastic and gave us a wonderful, full day trip from Edinburgh to St Andrews and the Kingdom of Fife. Lots of historical information along the way. Sean was quite knowledgeable, courteous and a great driver!
