It was an absolutely fantastic day in a breath taking scenery. The area is a gem and you get plenty of opportunities to take photos and some time to see St Andrews on your own enough time even for a round of golf. Our guide was Graham, who was funny and full of facts which he called useless and stories.

Excellent day with Graham! We enjoyed beautiful weather and scenery on the day. This tour was great, Graham was very entertaining and attentive to the needs of those on this tour. We had plenty of time to see St. Andrews and enjoy the best fish and chips ever at Cromars. This trip is well worth taking.

This was such a fun tour. On the drive up at St Andrews we stopped at a few little sea side villages. We spent a few hours in the town of St Andrews and if you are a golfer it is your mecca. We had a few hours in St Andrews, so we visited the Cathedral, Castle and golf course. Our driver was very knowledgeable, I wish I remembered his name, perhaps the agency could add it into the reviewhe had a female apprentice driver with him. He had been working for the agency for some time and had so much knowledge of the route, plus he had a great sense of humor which is always nice on a long trip. He played different music depending at different parts of the trip and always related the story of the musician to the place. It is small bus tour so you really have a great experience.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We had three hours in St Andrews and nice stops along the beautiful coast of Fife. Visiting the birth place of golf was one the bucket list and add to that the wildlife and birds along the coast and the history, and the trip was all we could ask for.
