Rob was by far the best tour guide of all of my Scotland tours. He was courteous, enthusiastic, and a superb storyteller. He made sure to point out all of the local attractions and provided recommendations for the best fish and chips and gelato. Overall it was a great day touring the fishing villages and seeing the coastline.

Al was a fantastic driver! He was knowledgeable and professional and also hilarious! The tour itself was great and nice and relaxed. Beautiful views of the Scottish countryside. Al made an extra special stop at Eile Beach for photos. Anstruther was adorable. Saint Andrews was beautiful and the cathedral and castle were amazing. Falkland and the palace were lovely also. Would highly recommend this tour! (Rabbie’s).

My wife and I visited Scotland and spent much of our time walking around the city, but we decided to take a one day tour to St. Andrews via coach. It was a 16 passenger with only 8 people on board. Our driver Stephen J. was very informative and fun for the entire trip.

Our driver, (lord) John, was really good at guiding us through the day, telling us interesting stories and keeping us entertained. We had a good amount of time to explore St Andrews.
Nice experience, would definitely recommend it!

While most of the stops on the tour were amazing and we did have some great food, we felt the description of the tour was misleading. The main reason why we chose this tour was to see St. Andrews. We ended up spending about five minutes parked on the green and then 2 1/2 hours in the town of Falkland. This town was certainly beautiful however when we arrived we were asked to buy tickets to the palace and gardens which we did not know was not included in the ticket. We spent 12 pounds on tickets and it closed 45 minutes after our arrival we didn’t even get to see it after taking a bathroom break, this was very disappointing. We felt quite mislead on this tour. The bus was also uncomfortably hot and tight. John was quite nice but had to read off of a paper at times to share information. I would not recommend this tour especially if St. Andrews is important to you.

Hi Carly, Thank you for taking the time to review your tour. I am sorry you did not enjoy your time on tour with us. We do advertise that all entrance fees are optional extras and we try to be as clear as possible with this so apologises if you did not read this at the time of booking. You spend approximately 2.5-3 hours in St Andrews on this tour, apologies if you did not find this to be long enough, however we do also have customers going on the tour primarily to visit Falkland so we also have to spend a decent amount of time here. If you were looking to spend the entire day in St Andrews perhaps we could have offered you a more appropriate tour. Kind Regards, Fiona

Mark was our tour guide and he was wonderful. We had fist went to Queensferry to view the bridges. That was amazing. Then on to Anstruther. Gorgeous little village with a nice walled in harbor. Next stop St Andrews. Amazing ruins of the cathedral and castle. Last stop was Falkland Palace. Very interesting and informative. Great tour with one complaint. We booked this thinking it went to Kingsbarn Distillery as advertised. Not happy to learn on the tour that that was no longer included. That should have been communicated or your website updated.

We had a blast on the tour and would definitely do it again. James was a great tour guide and was very entertaining. He told us many Scottish stories and history facts, along with letting us listen to authentic music. He was very pleasant to be around. We had a great day and would recommend this tour to everyone

John the driver did a wonderful job telling stories and historical stories along the way. Nice short trip (9am-about 6 with traffic) compared to going to places like Loch Ness. The price is great for the length of the trip, well worth it.

We did this one day tour and it was very good - our driver was Fergie and he was great! The bus ride isn’t too far. St. Andrews is a quaint little town - we had time to eat lunch at a restaurant of our choice and see both the castle and cathedral (both highly recommend). We didn’t do the golf course but we’re not golfers. Then we went to Falkland Palace - really enjoyed the gardens there.
