    Graham T was an amazing guide, full of history and music during the ride, and gave us great orientation before letting us explore on our own. We thoroughly enjoyed the villages and St. Andrews. Thanks for a great day!

    Our ride to St. Andrews was comfortable and enjoyable. Our driver/guide was pleasant and informative on the sights that we were seeing while traveling on the coach.

    We had the greatest day! Our guide
    was knowledgeable, passionate, funny,
    personable and a good driver! We can’t recommend this company more strongly and are sure to re-book next time we are in Scotland.

    The golf history is what lead us to this tour, but Richard showed us so much more! Fantastic walk around the town and could have stayed an extra day just following up on what we learned. Richard was fantastic, for the golf information and all that is St. Andrews! I think I'll look into the studies at the School of International Relations ;)

    We took a walking tour with Dougal on Saturday. It was quite educational and interesting. It was cool to get some inside information from a lifetime local as well as a current student at the university.
    The tour was an easy walk and small enough group that we didn’t miss anything.
    I highly recommend this glimpse into the history of St Andrews!

    BY FAR the most amazing tour experience we've ever had! My husband and I had one week in Scotland and with only a short amount of time we thought booking a guided weekend tour would be perfect. The 2-day tour was the best decision and best experience. Stephen was a FANTASTIC story-teller and guide. His energy was hard to beat and answered any questions we had when they came up. I'm still amazed that we got to see and experience so much in such a short amount of time. We loved every stop and hope to come back again one day. If you're debating on booking The Hairy Coo, debate no further!

    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.

    Richard was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. He aimed to open our minds to the paranormal activities in St Andrews and reported patterns. He told historical facts and kept the tour moving quickly. We had a great time and would do it again.

    Really informative tour. Found out about and saw many things that we didn’t know about the town despite having visited many times before.

    One word to start with is ‘Fantastic’. Had a great trip and loved each and everything about it. Great details and descriptions about the locations including restaurants and pubs. Shout out to ‘Stephen aka Steve’ our driver and tour guide. What a man and knowledge he has. I am obsessed with his story telling skills. He had a great playlist I must say. We literally had tears in our eyes to say good bye to him. About the locations all of them were amazingly beautiful. This trip was recommended by my close friend who had done this back in 2020 and I would highly recommend ‘The hairy coo’ to everyone.

    Cheers!
