Jeff was a wonderful guide taking us so many wonderful sights and explaining the very interesting history of Scotland. This is absolutely the best way to experience the highlands when you have limited time. We absolutely loved the trip and look forward to... More

In mid-September, 2015 we took 3 separate day trips out of Edinburgh: St Andrews & East Neuk of Fife, Royal Castles, and Scottish Highlands-Glencoe. Each day was outstanding and Matthew and Jim did an extraordinary job as historian, guide, and driver--taking us on the assigned routes with additional stops of interest as time permitted. In addition, Matthew suggested an itinerary... More

Matthew made our trip in Edinburgh Scotland-his knowledge of Scotland and the history as well as informing us of the great inventions that have come from Scotland made our trip. He allowed us to change our trip mid way and we couldn't have been happier with our day. We left that day wanting more and we will be back and... More

Discreet Scotland Guide Jeff Fry has a seemingly unlimited knowledge of Scotland's history and places of interest. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him. He was always prompt, polite and considerate. He was very personable and happy to answer our questions. Jeff knew of back road areas which cannot be accessed by large busses and would have been hard or... More

We booked a highlands tour with Discreet Scotland well in advance and we were so glad we did! (They do book up, so beware.) We were picked up at our hotel in Edinburgh and driven to highlands country by Matthew. It was a thoroughly wonderful driving tour. Matthew was entertaining and conversant in the history and present day culture of... More

There were six of us and we took several tours with Discreet Scotland. We had Jim for the first day and Matthew for the next two tours. They were both extremely well versed in local lore, folktales and history. They made the Trip! I read the other recent reviews and can only add that I cannot imagine any better tour... More

We spent a wonderful day with Jim (our guide) who made our trip to the Borders region a great experience. Jim met us right on time, made us instantly feel comfortable (he was super friendly with a fantastic sense of humor) and was the perfect blend of knowledge, anecdotes, culturally-relevant references, and Scottish personality that a family of four could...

We (a party of 6 ) booked the 5 day tour Highlands and Isle of Skye. What should I write? It was just fantastic - this incredible landscape. Paul picked us up from the hotel in Edinburgh in time.

We stayed in Edinburgh and took three day tours, the first day with Matthew and the second and third day with Jim. We were very pleased and would certainly recommend this travel option. We were able to see a great deal in a limited time with the schedule tailored to our interests. Both guides were very knowledgable. They worked hard... More
