My wife and I and another couple spent a wonderful day with Matthew. We visited the observatory, St. Giles, Edinburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel along with a ton of other sites. Matthew was full of great information. Just the day before he gave a tour to a very well known country and western star. He plays a pretty mean fiddle!... More

Matthew and team do a wonderful job. The car is clean, Matthew was punctual, very knowledgable and resourceful. Went with high expectations and were not disappointed. Did a day tour of the highlands in August.

This was our first time in Scotland. We booked The Outlander tour with Discreet Scotland. Margaret set up the tour on our behalf. She was very responsive and easy to work with. Matthew was our tour guide for the day. He was extremely knowledgeable about Scotland history which made the tour very interesting and educational for both my husband and... More

Matthew took us around the highlands and to Glenturret distillery. He was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about everything and responsive to all of our questions and desires. It really was a wonderful day. I couldn't recommend using this service enough. It's expensive but very well worth it. Matthew was funny and went the extra mile for us. He was great.... More

Could not have been a better day.... We had a fantastic day out with Matthew that included Stirling Castle, a great lunch at the Byre Inn, a whisky tour at Deanston, a beautiful drive through the country side, and a drop at the airport for our return flight. Super informative, not rushed, and catered to our interests. Kudos!

As Americans who are touring Europe during our free time while on a job assignment in London, we have become "sold" on private touring as the way to learn about an area in depth, while thoroughly enjoying yourself. We recently hired Discreet Scotland to take us through the Scottish Highlands and it was a phenomenal experience! Matthew picked us up... More

Mathhew's infectious enthusiasm for Edinburgh rivalled its majestic sights and beauty. Despite having spent 7 years living here i was amazed at his historical knowledge and would definitely recommend this tour. Next time i hope to venture to the isle of skye!!

I had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. The tour guide was punctual and knew so much history and was able to navigate the trip perfectly. The car was comfortable with fantastic large windows for great views in the snow! I would definitely use this company again and recommend them highly

Highlight of our trip to Scotland was our day tour with Discreet Scotland. We did our research and absolutely made a great choice. Matthew was right on time in a pristine Land Rover. He answered all our questions and made sure we saw what we wanted. He is very knowledgeable and gave us a real sense of the history involved.... More

This was my first visit to Edinburgh and I had always been very interested in touring the Highlands and learning a bit about the history of this fascinating area. I chose Discreet tours partly due to the reviews on here and also because the Highlands tour was exactly what I was looking for. I was fortunate to get Jim as... More
