Paul King was a wonderfully charming & knowledgeable host. Our visit to the Isle of Skye was certainly enriched by Paul's entertaining accounts of Scottish history, culture, and folklore. That, accompanied by Paul's expert understanding of places to visit, eat or view and photograph the finest scenery, made our trip even more rewarding. I would not hesitate to recommend Kings Tours Scotland and especially Mr Paul King himself if you plan on visiting old Alba.

I was not quite sure what to expect when I planned this tour with Paul only because the number of daylight hours in Scotland in mid-December is quite limited (this tour had to be managed in 6 hours) and also one was not sure of the vagaries of the weather, looking at the forecast. However, it turned out to be a brilliant and fun day. Paul’s pacing is always perfect. Tours with him are not overwhelming in which the days might be packed too tight and where one might get the feeling always of being rushed. No. Not so with Paul. His planning and sense of time is excellent. He selects the sights and the tours with care and customises them exactly per his customers’ requirements. In the end one gets the feeling of having been somewhere meaningful, and of having one’s senses enriched. It’s just right and it’s brilliant. Those memories stay with one for a long long time. I’m not going into the details of each place visited, nor am I going to wax lyrical about Paul’s sense of humour, his knowledge of Scottish history, current politics, the golf conversations, and the wonderful insights that he shares about each place visited: these things are all true, of course, and he is a truly excellent guide and friend. Very briefly, one saw the ruins of the Roslin Castle, the exquisite Rosslyn Chapel, the magnificent Scott’s View, and the enchanting and atmospheric Dryburgh and Melrose Abbeys. Lunch was at the classy Townhouse (Paul’s picks are perfect). I strongly recommend giving Paul and his partner Kelly a shout if you wish to discover Scotland. You will not be disappointed. Five stars, and that’s being stingy.

I took three young adults with me (early 20s) and we all loved this tour - it might have been the best day of our trip! Paul was amazing - interesting and funny and extremely knowledgable about Scottish history, politics, etc. He accommodated our wishes and we got to see exactly what we wanted to see. Highly recommend!!
