3 epic days with Craig!
Aug 2019 • Family
We loved being driven around for 3 different day tours by Craig. He has a fantastic personality and great sense of humor. Lots of great travel info and juicy stories from his 30 years as a police officer. He also had great connections and set us up with an art dealer who gave us good deals on paintings. He handled my moody 11 year old son very well by taking us to feed koi fish which perked my son right up. Craig picked us up at the Inverness airport after a very long flight delay late at night... and refused payment even though it wasn't part of the tours I had paid for. He even gave us snacks and drinks for our stay since it was too late to go shopping. Craig took lots of photos of us and sent us a link to them right away. Very professional yet warm man that made our trip to the Scottish Highlands very special. We miss him already!

The Perfect Private Tour!
Apr 2019 • Family
We planned the 'brief' tour as we had only a day to spare at Inverness and had a train to catch in the evening.

Craig is amazing as a chief facilitator of this amazing experience. He knows the landscape at the back of his hand, drives professionally and listens to your preferences to ensure we have a tailor-made experience of a lifetime.

We were pleasantly happy to have covered pretty much all we wanted and more within a day. Couldn't have done it without Craig. Definitely recommend this & would love to repeat this at some point in the future.
