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

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

We had a wonderful time with Matthew, our guide...my entire family loved him, from my 10 year old daughter to my 70 year old father! His car had plenty of room for the six of us, and was impeccably clean. He helped plan our day according to our wishes, and we saw everything we wanted to, yet at a relaxed... More

Matthew is an outstanding representative for Scotland. We saw so many "off the beaten path" highlights of Scotland. Very accommodating for our teenage kids interests. Plenty of time to free roam the waterfalls and outdoors a bit. Great mix of scenic landscapes and historical sites. Far and away the best segment of our vacation and our year and a half... More

We had two different tour guides over three days. They were both so professional and knowledgeable. They were also a pleasure to spend time with.
