This tour of the Scottish Highlands was great. His knowledge of the history and all of the kings and queens was amazing. He took us to areas only known by the locals. Beautiful scenery. great tour. Amazing castles and ruins.

I am a repeat customer with Craig's touring service and I will forever and always look to him to reveal the most breathtaking, undiscovered, well-known, and amazing places in Scotland! I have explored so many nooks and crannies with Craig and each adventure has had countless unique experiences and "a-ha" moments. Craig takes great care to learn his customers' preferences and interests and then at the drop of the hat, make adjustments so that no opportune experience is overlooked or passed by. Every aspect of every tour is so pleasant and worry-free. Craig can find appropriate and lovely lodging, he will ensure that all ferry and other transportation logistics are in place, and he knows all of the best places to stop for picturesque and delicious lunches and dinners! Craig provides a level of service that is outside the norm in this day and age. He is the kind of person who truly cares that your tour exceeds your expectations beyond your wildest dreams and he accomplishes this with natural good humor, grace and expertise. I can recommend Craig with no hesitation or caveats, whatsover. He is the very best of the best.

Once you are out of the cities of Scotland and England the natural beauty of these countries is breathtaking. It is difficult to post out specific areas,I would return to the Lochs of the Scottish Highlands and the and the Cotswolds of England if you are looking for serene beauty.

We hired Craig for a 4 day tour of Scotland. We were a group of 8 adults and his Mercedes Van was more than comfortable for us and our 8 carry on suitcases. Craig was funny and knowledgeable and drove us around safely! Our 4 days took us from Edinburgh to Loch Ness, Skye and then Glasgow. Craig is witty, educational and thoughtful. He responds quickly to any email, and his PayPal payment is safe and reliable. We will absolutely hire Craig again!

We had the absolute best time with Craig on our 3-day tour of the highlands, starting from Edinburgh and ending in Glasgow. Prior to the trip, we provided Craig with a couple of the main things we’d like to see/do: distillery tour, Culloden Battle Field, standing stones, Loch Ness and beautiful scenery. Craig was laid back and easy to work with for our trip planning. He provided us with an even better experience than we could have imagined. Our pickup was easy, and the van is very comfortable. We chatted a bit about the things we’d like to see, he made a couple recommendations and we were off! Craig is an amazing guide, he shared a lot of information with us about Scotland, the history, current events, the landscape, some funny jokes, and we made some incredible stops along the way and got to see things we otherwise would have had no idea about. We were traveling at the end of November and were a bit short on daylight, but Craig made sure we made the most of the time available. We did a great tour of the Dalwhinnie distillery, saw some incredible landscapes and ended the first day in Inverness. The next day Craig showed us some more amazing sights, including the beautiful countryside, Clava Cains standing stones and burial stones – truly incredible to be able to touch the standing stones, fans of Outlander will surely love this experience. We also walked the battlefield of Culloden, a somber experience. We then traveled to Loch Ness and enjoyed the beautiful boat ride on the Loch and view of the castle. We then made our way down to Fort William, stopping at a couple more scenic spots. The last day we toured the Highlands, and we lucked out with a day full of sunshine so we could truly appreciate the beautiful views. The scenery is like nothing I’ve ever seen before; it was absolutely beautiful and so unique, it’s a magical place. Our tour with Craig was the highlight of our trip to Scotland. He is so knowledgeable, friendly and laid back, it was like we were traveling with another friend. Our trip was too short, and I can’t wait to visit again, we’ll definitely travel with Craig again! I cannot recommend him enough, you can tell he truly loves what he does, and as someone who travels a lot, I can say with certainty that he is the best tour guide I’ve had. Thank you, Craig!!
