Gillian was quite knowledgeable and enthusiastic during the entire trip. She had a great sense of humor and played music that had value to the location where we were at that time. We did enjoy the music. The tour was well worth the money.

What a great tour. Dave our tour guide/driver was great. Very informative and friendly. There is a stop along the way in a small fishing village and they are know for the best fish and chips and they are not kidding. I had fish and chips in London and thought they were gross, but at this particular stop can't remember the name they were amazing. St. Andrews is a beautiful town. The St.Andrews cathedral and castle was stunning. Weather was beautiful that day so made everything even better.Highly, highly recommend this tour.
