With Craig as our guide, we learned fascinating bits of Scottish history and customs, explored scenic countryside while avoiding tourist mobs, and discovered many hidden gems, including wonderful little pubs for lunch and...

For my husband and my 20th wedding anniversary we decided to return to Scotland. We knew that we would have to ensure to use Craig Mini Day Tours again as it was the highlight of our 2011 trip! I have had people tell me they are traveling to Scotland and should they use a tour guide, specifically Craig and here... More

Craig picked us up at our hotel and gave us a few options for the day, b/c we were not exactly sure about what was most important to us to see for the day trip. We ended up heading east of Edinburgh and saw some amazing local sights that we would not have found on our own. He is personable,... More

We booked Craig for a one day tour of Stirling after travelling on our own for 2 weeks around Scotland. We mostly chose to use him instead of travelling alone because of transportation issues and the variety of sites we wanted to see around Sterling. It was a good thing we had him because Sterling castle was closed because of... More

We booked Craig's tour while on a cruise. Our ship docked in Greenock and we opted not to go to Glasgow or Edinburgh but rather to get a taste of the highlands scenery around Loch Lomond. Our itinerary also included the lovely village of Luss and the village of Inveraray, its Castle and beautiful gardens (extra entrance fee; make note... More

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...
