Craig
We couldn't have enjoyed our tour in Scotland any more. You lived up to your great reputation in every regard. We were even convinced that you arranged the fabulous weather we had that day. Loch Lomond was beautiful.
The restaurant you suggested for lunch was perfect. It was just right. The van was as clean and comfortable as any limousine. We appreciated you coming in your traditional attire. It made us feel very special. I can't think of a thing I would change. You were punctual,courteous, informative. Highest marks. We can recommend you to any one traveling

Thanks for the review. A great day out in the mountains of Argyll, with my wee side trip to Hells Glen which gives you that stunning view over to Inveraray on Loch Fyne. It was good to get lunch in the 250 year old George Hotel and get the best seats in the place! And I hope you have forgiven me for not singing on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond!

“Craig has Scotland down to a "tee"”
Reviewed October 11, 2010

We spent our 25th anniversary in Edinburgh and wanted to have a special, personalized tour of the Kingdom of Fife and St. Andrews. Craig did not disappoint! He picked us up at The Scotsman and we began our day touring some of the most beautiful country in the world. Craig is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the countryside we were visiting. We toured a couple of small fishing villages (St. Monans is NOT to be missed) then made our way to St. Andrews. What a perfect day to walk the Old Course, visit the ruins of the Cathedral, and tour the university. Craig mixed humorous stories with historical facts. We felt like we had known Craig for years! His tour was one of the highlights of our trip and we'd highly recommend ANY of his tours!! We're looking forward to his Highlands tour on our next trip to Scotland. Bring a camera and a sense of adventure and be prepared for a day you won't soon forget!!

Some great pictures of Fife and St Andrews yo u took that day! Thanks for the review. I love showing off the less known places in Fife, such as St Monans and Elie before heading into St Andrews, which as you now know is so much more than just golf! Craig McCall Flynn

“THE BEST!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

I want to say that we SO VERY MUCH enjoyed our tours with Craig! He truly was the highlight of our entire cruise (around the British Isles) ...he was insightful, knowledgeable, able to figure out the kinds of sights we'd like to see. We have been on many private tours and had some excellent tour guides in our past cruises, but none come close to matching Craig! We had him as a tour guide out of Greenock (Glasgow) and Edinburgh...but now, we would not go anywhere in Scotland or Ireland without working thru him and havign him set up our itinerary and be our guide.
We absolutely will return to Scotland; and now that we know he also does Ireland as well (!), we will for sure call on him to arrange our travels in both Ireland and Scotland.
If ever anyone wants a reference - I can tell them that all 6 of us (3 couples): Craig set the bar very high for any other tour we may yet take in the future! Truly, no kidding, he is THE BEST!

Thanks for taking the time to write the review. Blessed with great weather in the port of Greenock for a change I love showing off my local area with the drive through Hells Glen a favorite location of mine. Lunch at Inveraray was great! In Edinburgh the pub we lunched at was my old local, the Sheeps Heid Inn - the oldest pub in Scotland (so they say!). Craig McCall Flynn

“Highlands Highlight was a pure delight!”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

Craig @ mini tours collected us (family of 8, ages 12-60) from our hotel in Edinburgh.
We had no set ideas on where to go - not an issue for Craig - he sat with us for 15 minutes chatting about places and he devised our route for the day. The mini bus is comfortable for 8 adults and Craig is extremely knowledgable, he has quite a wicked sense of humour and seemed to blend in as though he was part of our family!
We went up into the highlands to 'Braveheart Country' and felt like we had seen the real Scotland.
It was a beautiful day.

Thanks for your kind words. A great day out in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park , the William Wallace Monument and the Dukes Pass - I enjoyed our picnic lunch on the banks of Loch Venachar at that wee quiet spot on such a glorious day! Craig McCall Flynn
