My family and I just completed our second tour around the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands with Craig Flynn as our guide. We were so impressed the first time we could not wait to schedule another trip with Mini Tours of Scotland. I developed an itinerary and Craig filled in the gaps and made recommendations. He helped us find special experiences... More

My family just arrived home in the states from Scotland. This was our second tour with Craig and it was absolutely fantastic. We booked with Craig again because we knew that he was exactly what we were looking for. Craig is hilarious, super knowledgeable, and makes the traveling extremely easy. I can't speak highly enough for him and his company.... More

My husband and I had traveled to Scotland in 2014 to attend the Ryder Cup Golf tournament. We had a wonderful trip but felt like we spent all our time on the golf course. We needed more time to see and experience Scotland so we planned our second trip. Craig picked us up in Edinburgh on October 5th. The three... More

Me and my mum toured with Craig for 8 days around the Scottish Highlands in September 2016. I can't say a bad word about him. I had given him and approximate itinerary of what we would like to do and see prior to the trip and Craig made some suggestions to it. He booked the accommodations for us based on... More

Our group of 4 family members toured with Craig on 2 separate days during our cruise. He picked us up at two different ports in Scotland. He was timely, dressed in traditional kilt and we rode in a very comfortable van. Craig is a fantastic guide and historian. He is full of wonderful stories and took us to so many... More

Our tour was formed from a group of cruise ship passengers in port for the day. Craig met us near the dock and we toured the surrounding of Edinburgh for several hours with some free time in Edinburgh at the end. The bulk of our itinerary was our choice, and Craig scattered some stops in between that we might not... More

Craig is a wonderful guide and is extremely helpful as well. A very personable and knowledgeable man, he was also adept at dealing with the crowds and traffic during the Military Tattoo in Edinburgh. We highly recommend him!

Craig's mini tours was perfect for our group. The girls, my daughter (18), and nieces (22 & 27) and myself gave him two thumbs up. Craig is so nice and very knowledgable about his country. We were never bored on our long journey as Craig was full of information, many jokes and some fantastic music. Unfortunately, the weather did not... More
