Bruces Highland Tour with Mr. Bruce Telford is magnificent, giving you more than a guide through Scotland and an experience that it is impossible to describe with words. From the seashore to the mountains, the mind cannot absorb the vitality this country expells from its depths, which are expertly explained by Mr. Telford. From the Highlands to the cities of... More

My two teen-age sons and I looked forward to our time in Scotland as the highlight of our trip to the U.K., and Bruce made sure it was everything we'd expected, and more. In planning for the trip, Bruce was extremely responsive via email and clearly interested in personalizing the trip for us -- no cookie-cutter itineraries here. In our... More

We were able to book with Bruce for just one day since we had a limited amount of time in Scotland - his usual tours are a week or more. We emailed with Bruce that we'd like to see Stirling Castle and he built the day's itinerary from there: pick up at our hotel in Edinburgh, Stirling Castle with a... More

Bruce's Scotland tours is the best way to view the country. He brought Scotland alive for my sister, our friend and me. We visited castles, distilleries, St Andrews, war monuments and learned the history as we went. Bruce becomes a part of your group as he drives you on your adventure. We saw many wonderful things we would have missed... More

Bruce used an itinerary that we gave him. He tweaked it and gave us a trip of a lifetime. We saw most of the highlands, all that we asked for and also things we didn't know about. Using humor, he gave us history lessons. We got to see the tourist sites and also less explored. We feel we got to... More

Yes, if you’re a reasonably competent driver and you take care to keep yourself very alert at all times, you can drive in Scotland yourself (though the 10 foot wide country roads and negotiating the roundabouts can be challenging!) — but why? Why waste your holiday time in one of the most scenic and magical countries on earth by focusing... More

Touring Scotland with Bruce Telford as our guide ranks as one of the most enjoyable times we've ever had on a vacation. From the time he picked us up at the airport until he dropped us off at our doorstep in Edinburgh a week later, our journey through Scotland was filled with wonderful sights, fascinating stories, great music, wee pubs,...

My partner and I toured Scotland and the Lake District with Bruce in October. Travelling with a 3 month old baby we were prepared for some tough times but this was not the case. Bruce was extremely well prepared with a great baby capsule which made the trip easy from the start. Bruce was incredibly knowledgable and an excellent guide.... More

Our Family went on the four night five day tour of Scotland. We have three kids (14, 12, and 8). Bruce tailored the tour to show the kids the different Harry Potter filming locations around Scotland, knowing they were big Harry Potter fans. Bruce's knowledge of the countryside, the landforms and the history was amazing. Our hikes through this tour... More
