On our first day in Edinburgh we were met in the lobby by Hamish in his kilt and were led to the Range Rover that would take us around Edinburgh and out to Roslyn Chapel. Hamish is a retired Edinburgh policeman so he had a remarkable knowledge of the city and it's history. Unfortunately, on the night before, my husband... More

My wife and I toured the Highlands and the Isle of Skye. We booked it with Discrete Scotland. Matthew made up the itinerary but we toured with Paul. Paul was great. He was knowledgable and very efficient. He tweaked the itinerary to accommodate our interests. We highly recommend a Discrete Scotland.

My wife and I booked Discreet Scotland to bring us on a tour of the Highlands while we were in Scotland for our honeymoon this week and it was a decision vindicated from the moment we met Matthew at the doorsteps of our hotel. Warm, friendly, professional, cheerful and knowledgeable, Matthew was the perfect person to show us around the... More

Reserved three days with Discreet Scotland six months in advance of our trip. Believed based on our correspondence we would be touring with Matthew, he who stars in all the great reviews. Day one someone else showed (very nice chap tho). Discovered a couple hours out of Edinburgh his vehicle had problems. Made it through the day but hours longer... More

Hello Alison, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Please may I first state that you were at no point told I would be your guide. We have 4 vehicles and 5 guides, so it would be impossible for me to cover every tour. Hamish, the very nice chap you mention is just one of our 5... More

My husband, two daughters and myself booked the "Edinburgh and Surrounding Areas" tour with Discreet Tours in late May. From the moment we met Matthew in Edinburgh, we knew we were in for an amazing day! Punctual, courteous, polite, attentive, jovial and obliging, Matthew showed us Scotland like a family friend. His knowledge about everything "Scottish" is unbelievable and there's... More

We were met by our guide Jim on time at our hotel and spent a wonderful day seeing many sites that we had not visited on past visits to Scotland. His knowledge of the area and the historical significance of the sites we visited were both informative and entertaining. We would highly recommend Discreet Scotland to any visitors looking for...

We can't say enough good things about Matthew and Discreet Scotland. They made our time in Scotland so much more enjoyable than if we had driven ourselves - and we saw so much more than we ever would have had we driven. Mathew knew the best times and places for visits. He was prompt, helpful and fun. He made sure... More

Matthew is amazing and we highly recommend him to everyone planning on visiting Scotland. He knew EXACTLY what we wanted to see. He was very professional, yet he was fun and talked and laughed with us and didn't treat us like tourists. He honestly became our friend the week we were with him! We went to Ireland and wanted to...

We only had two full days in Scotland and wanted to make the most of both of them. We hired Discreet Scotland for our first full day to visit two of Scotland's castles, Balmoral and Glamis. What we got was some of the most beautiful countryside scenery, a lovely day where we didn't have to do any of the driving... More

We had an excellent experience with Discreet Scotland Private Tours. The Range Rover vehicle was spacious, comfortable and able to go off-road to see sights tour buses cannot. Our guide was a skilled and courteous driver. He was very considerate of our needs and desires, and quite knowledgable about Scotland, especially its history and geography. We were most interested in... More
