I highly recommend Trip Organiser Scotland for organizing private tours! I worked via email with Beryl prior to our trip, and she made the process so easy. We had some specific and unusual requests but it was no problem, and she took it and ran from there. She contacted the perfect tour guides for our interests and arranged the times and places. Communication was excellent. We even had problems after our tours were completed (personal, unrelated to the tours), and she was eager and happy to help us out! I now consider Beryl a friend, and can't wait to work with her again when we return to Scotland!
We took two private day tours, and greatly enjoyed both. Our first day was with Doug Norris, and he gave us a guided tour of Glasgow, with an emphasis on Charles Rennie Mackintosh architecture, as our daughter is an architecture student and was especially interested in him. We even were able to arrange a private tour of the Hill House in Helensburgh, which I highly recommend (contact Taylah at the Hill House for the arrangements). We spent all day with Doug, and he is a fantastic guide!
Our second day tour was with Keith Telford. He arranged a wonderful day where we visited two castles related to my Scottish heritage (one was a special arrangement based on personal contacts he had, and we never would have been able to meet the people otherwise), as well as doing a whisky tasting, and finally visiting Rosslyn Chapel. We greatly enjoyed our time with Keith!
We had actually arranged a third day tour to hike in Glen Coe, but very sadly had to cancel this one due to illness. I fully intend to arrange this with Beryl next time!
Don't hesitate to contact Beryl and Trip Organiser Scotland for private tour planning, they are the best!!
