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 group had asked to visit St Andrews which we visited from Leith and the second tour we left the itinerary up to Craig.... 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

We just can't say enough great things about Craig and our tour from the cruise port at Greenock, Scotland. We booked with him 9 months before our cruise and are so glad we did. We wanted transportation from Greenock to Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo with a day of sightseeing. He was fantastic to communicate with via email and had... More

I found Craig on the internet as I was researching alternatives for a Shore Excursion on a Princess Cruise. We hooked up 8 months before the cruise. We arranged a full day from our port stop in Greenock Scotland. We arranged a full day to include stops at Loch Lomond and Sterling Castle, followed by transportation to the Military Tattoo... More

We wouldn't consider a United Kingdom tour without Craig. He is a professional, very knowledgeable, and courteous. He is a wonderful representative for his homeland, Scotland, as well as Ireland and Northern Ireland. He was always punctual and helped us make excellent time with our days with him. I would highly recommend CraIg for any upcoming touring.
