Our tour guide, Franchesca I am not sure the spelling of her name, I'm sorry was superb! She was funny and talked enough to keep us interested, but not so much that you wanted her to stop. She was a great story teller and she had all sorts of interesting information about Edinburgh, the Kingdom of Fife and St. Andrews. She clearly did her homework. We got in a lot of sight seeing in St Andrews, which is largely why we booked the tour, and felt ready to leave just in time. The little stops we made along the way were perfect, and she was good about time keeping. We wished we had booked a city tour of Edinburgh with the same agency but didn't have time. I would use this company again and again, and highly recommend it to everyone. We couldn't say enough about Fran!

St. Andrews and Fife are both an amazing and beautiful! My husband is a golf enthusiast. It is in his bucket list to go and play here. My family enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was very entertaining, knowledgeable and accommodating. I love his Scottish playlist! We had our stop overs for some picture taking or bathroom rest at the Firth of Forth Birdges, Ellie popular seaside town in the East Neuk of Fife, Anstruther charming fishing village in the East Neuk and Falkland. We love St.Andrew's. We were given 3 hours to explore the wonderful historical place. My kids enjoyed the Street Market, St.Andrew's Aquarium,Golf Museum, the gift shop near St.Andrew's University where they have display of St. Andrew's life.With such limited time, overall the tour was worth it.

The home of Golf, beautiful ruins, a wonderful beach, and the North Sea. I managed to have lunch with two of the locals, a Sea Gull and a Crow. Has good shopping and places to grab a bite to eat.

Had a wonderful time with this tour. A nice touch was the Scottish music we experienced during the parts of the trip that needed no commentary.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful day trip through the Scottish countryside. Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgable and a great story teller. He took us to great little sea side villages on the way to St. Andrews for great photo opportunities, and a coffee/bathroom break. He kept us entertained with Scottish music, and a great story about Mary the Queen of Scots. We spent about 3 hours in St. Andrews. That was plenty of time. St. Andrews golf course was an incredible, life long dream come true,and great experience. The town of St. Andrews is very quaint. Stopping in the town of Falkland for a bathroom/coffee/beer, where Mary Queen of Scots spent some time, was very nice too. Mike took us to a great spot for a photo opportunity of the Firth of Forth bridges down by the water on the way back to our drop off point in Edinburgh. I Highly recommend this tour!

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! It was well-organised and on time. Our guide was a local to the area and had many interesting tales to tell, accompanied by local music from the Fife and Scotland.

Al was our guide and Rabbies was the tour company. We really like Rabbies. Al was great too. This is the company to choose. Very informative. I would suggest 2 1/2 before a bathroom break was a little too much time.
