Recently returning from a glorious ten days in Scotland, I was reflecting on what made our trip special. Ricki Henderson of About Scotland picked us up and took us on an adventure to three islands in the Hebrides. He kept us on track with his knowledge of schedules for multiple ferry trips to get us to Mull, Iona and Islay – all of which we loved. But it was his good humor, knowledge of history and meaningful extra stops to view extraordinary sites like Kilmartin Glen that added depth and helped us build treasured memories. What a pleasure to leave everything to Ricki and have him exceed our expectations. It was amazing.

In Glasgow, we discovered that no tour companies would take our family because we have a toddler. (Would like to say our toddler doesn't fuss in buses. Had another lovely long bus tour in Edinburgh.) So our only choice was a private tour. That's how we found Ricki. It was a great day out of the city. We covered a lot of ground, had a nice lunch, and the ride in Ricki's luxury minivan was comfortable for our family of 5. At the end of the day, Ricki took us to one of his "hidden gems," which was definitely worth a visit. Very beautiful and isolated.

Well, I thought I knew my own country pretty well until I arranged a trip with "Ricki the Celtic Guide". Along with my brothers I was treated to a weekend of hidden sites and great food in the Highlands. Ricki looked like a true Celt with his pale complexion, ginger hair and of course the kilt. He kept us going with stories which were clearly a mixture of history and myth. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We had a fantastic time despite the weather and look forward to seeing more of our country in this way.

We only had a weekend in Scotland and booked a day with Ricki. We trusted his advice on what to see on our short visit. He took us to Stirling castle, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National park, with a few bonus sites. He picked us up at our Glasgow hotel and gave us a quick tour of the city. When he dropped us off in Edinburgh, he showed us around there as well. The tour was a great value and Ricki is an excellent guide. He also very kindly exchanged many emails with us before booking to answer a lot of questions I highly recommend About Scotland!

We had wonderful tours with Ricki in Edinburgh and Glasgow , Scotland. He was highly professional, knowledgable, and so pleasant to spend the days with as we toured castles and the beautiful countryside of Scotland. We highly recommend him to anyone planning to visit these two cities or surrounding area. Scotland was an amazing country and we had such a great time on our tours. You will not be disappointed!
