Graham Was a great tour guide.

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.

Absolutely recommend this tour. Gave us a glimpse of Scotland beyond just Edinburgh. I was surprised to learn that St. Andrews was so more than just the golf course. The university, the town, the cathedral remains were all amazing. We had plenty of time to explore it all. Our guide, Derek, was hilarious and pointed out many interesting things along the way.
