Great stories, stunning scenery, perfectly paced and excellent value. That's how I'd describe our day tour with Jeff Fry to Glencoe. Jeff was funny, kind, exceptionally chivalrous (no doubt a throwback to his days in the Black Watch), and thoughtful in the way he approached the plotting of our trip. We started promptly at 8, and returned just over 10... More

We had the good fortune of getting a tour by Matthew of Edinburgh and the surrounding area as well as a drive to Lancaster, England. Matthew was very knowledgeable of what Scotland has to offer and was extremely personable. He knew great spots for grabbing a bite to eat, suggestions for what to see in our time during the evening... More

We took a private tour today. Tour was absolutely fabulous. Matthew was wonderful. We were driven right to entrance of each attraction. We could look around and/or take attraction tour. We never felt rushed. We were taken to an historic pub for lunch which had great meal. This was a relaxed information filled day. There were plenty of interesting facts... More

We booked this tour after reading Trip Advisor Reviews and we were delighted. We were escorted around Edinburgh in a very comfortable Land Rover to all the sites listed at the tour and lots more. Our guide Matthew was amazing. He arrived on time in a kilt (great legs) to our hotel. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating, we were... More

Matthew had arranged a day trip for us. Right from the meeting a rainy and cool December morning through inspired sharing of Scottish highlights, Matthew made visiting Scotland a great choice to end 2013. Note: Highly infectious enthusiasm! Worth every penny.

There is no simpler way to review our day-long tour with Discreet Scotland other than to say it was the absolute highlight of our four day trip to Scotland. We considered the fee for our customized tour money well spent given the challenge of driving on “the other side,” narrow roads, complexity of navigating Edinburgh and ability for both of... More

I booked a one-day Highland and Loch Ness tour for five of us - my wife, parents and my 3-year old daughter. Our guide, Paul, warmly greeted us at our hotel and took us on a drive of highlands that one would not forget. His knowledge about the history and passion for Scotland was shown throughout the day. As we... More

The perfect way to visit Scotland. Castles, distilleries, Nessie -- our guide, Jeff, took us to visit them all! He has a great sense of humor and helped make our tour fun and interesting. He was able to pack a lot into our day without making it seemed rushed or hurried -- we had plenty of time for the shops.... More

Discreet Scotland Tours helped arrange a tour that met all of our requests - seeing castles, visiting a distillery and taking in the breath taking natural views. Matthew, at Discreet Scotland, listened to our wants and built a customized tour for us. We had the chance... More

My husband and I booked the day-long tour to Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond. Our driver, Paul, timely greeted us in our hotel lobby and took us on an unforgettable excursion across Scotland. Paul was engaging and conscientious. He entertained us with stories as we toured the beautiful countryside. In addition to Stirling and the Loch, we customized the tour... More
