Craig is not only a wonderful tour guide but a very knowledgeable historian of the UK. He was very helpful in setting up lodging for us, and chose some beautiful pubs for great meals. We were together for 11 days and my husband and I looked forward each morning to another wonderful day with Craig. He gave us an amazing... More

Craig @ mini tours met us at the airport. He planned a very interesting tour. Very knowledgeable; explained sights, history, architecture, even local agriculture. Very flexible, a number of times he adjusted the tour to accommodate our requests. Selected very nice hotels for us. When we return we will use Craig again.

We booked Craig along with 2 other couples and had a wonderful day! He was very knowledgeable in all things Scotland. He tailored the day to include the sights we had requested. Transportation was very roomy and comfortable. I would highly recommend spending the day with him. You won't be disappointed!!

Craig did an outstanding job with our tour. We had 8 people age 22 to 82 and he planned an itinerary that we all thoroughly enjoyed. He delivered very personal attention to our interests and suggested some adjustments on the fly as the weather changed. He took us to some sites that were not the "standard" tourist stops and were...

This was our third and last port in Scotland on our cruise. Friends had booked a tour with Craig before the cruise for our day at Edinburgh. It turned out that we had already been to the places that Craig was planning on taking us so he gave the eight of us some options as to what we would like... More

Craig was a last minute find for us after the ship's tours were all booked online. What an amazing day, I fell in love with Scotland and can't wait to go back. We spent a lovely day driving through Trossachs National Park, visiting the beautiful town of Inverary, having an amazing meal at the lovely George Hotel, visiting Argyll Castle,... More

Friends had booked a private tour for 8 people of the Edinburgh area with Craig. On this occasion we had planned to simply walk around the city by ourselves, but suddenly two of the folks on the tour were forced to cancel due to illness. We were asked if we wanted to join and decided to do so. One of... More

Craig is a consummate tour guide with real passion for what he does. His friendly, easy demeanor put us instantly at ease. We were a group of five (four adults and a toddler aged 2). We only had one day and we wanted to have a good first introduction to Scotland. Craig spoke with us for 10 minutes learning about... More

Our family of four just returned from Edinburgh where we spent one day with Craig exploring the East Lothians region. His expertise and knowledge of the area are first rate and the personalized attention was great!
