Tour Scotland Testimonials

Dear Sandy, I just wanted to write and say thank you for the wonderful time we had during our tour of Scotland. You showed us beautiful and stunning places that we would never have seen without you. Your knowledge of Scotland and its people was wonderfully informative. Your humor and wit made us feel at ease. You have provided me with memories I will cherish the rest of my life. The Dupplin Cross; Neil with his dogs; Alan and his horses. These were experiences that will never be matched. I so appreciate your care and kindness to my family, especially my parents. We all had a great time. Thank You again, Tamie Lewis.

Dear Sandy, As far as the tour of last week, I can sum it up as an "unbelievable educational, visual and spiritual experience". The castles, landscape, villages, museums, churches, lochs, festivals, pubs, the sea, rivers, golf courses, vintage cars and farm land all generated educational and visual lifetime memories. However, the most enjoyable experiences were the many engaging conversations with you during our tour. You are a great ambassador of your homeland, Scotland. As far as my trip to Scotland, I'm very grateful for all that I have learned and have taken away from the tour of Scotland. As the trip was being planned and up to the point of landing in Scotland, I had no knowledge of what was in store and how my Scotland vacation was going to effect me. You elevated my vacation from an expected pleasure to something that was very much unexpected and very pleasurable. The most remarkable part of achieving these results were you accomplish this by just being yourself with what appeared to be with very little effort. Through the duration of the tour I came to the conclusion that this is who you are, the real you, and for this, please accept my feelings of true appreciation. Thank you. Best Regards.
Chris and Robin Choate.

Sandy,
Thank you for taking such good care of us. You are a wonderful driver, and I appreciate that you planned our excursions to take advantage of good weather. We especially liked the sheep farm and all the beautiful fishing villages along your coast. It was truly beautiful and unique tour.

Sandy,
We so enjoyed our visit. Thank you so much for the time and planning! The trip was all that we had wanted when we planned it. We feel that we got to see and experience Scotland, a real feel for the country and its people and customs, returning with food for thought and further plans for visits. Zane and Brennan both want to live there now. Thank you,also, for sharing your experiences and thoughts. You added a personal dimension that also made the trip more "real."

Hi Sandy!
I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour of Scotland with you! In spite of the weather, you managed to find sun for us each day somewhere interesting! My pictures of the trip show at least one photo with sunshine in almost every place we went. How about that!! We loved our visit to "your" Scotland, and the versitility you showed when we got
'rained" out at some sites. Thank you for a great trip, and I shall practice that Scot's twirl of the tongue for our next visit.

Sandy,
I want to tell you how much we appreciated your tour of Scotland. It is a country we have wanted to visit for years because ancestors of both me and my husband came from there. We did a lot of research on how to tour, and we chose to see your Scotland, the real Scotland, after looking at the tour description on your web site. Your tour was everything we wanted and everything you said it would be. But, to call it a tour does not do it justice. It was an intimate journey with you and your fellow Scots sharing your country, your culture, and your day-to-day lives with us. We wanted to meet the real Scots and were delighted to be able to talk to so many of them. From the gentleman in the pub in Arbroath Harbor, to the homeowner in Falkland who was preparing for the flower contest, to the shopkeeper near the Palace of Holyroodhouse who explained how bagpipes are made, and many, many more, the people were friendly, sincere, and had a keen sense of humor.

You showed us incredible scenery from lush, velvety mountains to colorful harbor towns. My personal favorite was the stop at Glen Quiach in the Perthshire Highlands. The serenity of the mountains and glen took on a sacred feel as you described the people who once lived there and how they were forced from their homeland. The history of Scotland was brought to life by our stops at places such as the Dunnottar Castle, the Isle of Skye Croft Museum, and the Pictish stone at the Glamis Manse. The Dupplin Cross from the ninth century was awesome and something we would never have seen on any other tour.

I especially want to thank you for the visit to the graveyard in Monikie where David was able to see and photograph his ancestors’ gravestones and for going to all of the effort to enable us to visit the farm where the family had lived. Those two stops were emotional high points of the tour and meant a great deal to us.

I know you made a Herculean effort to keep us dry during the rainy days, and it was fun to venture off into a storm free direction and see the sites. There was always a wonderful experience at each stop. The clear blue skies on the Isle of Skye made for incredible sightseeing. The landscapes and the ocean views were breathtaking. Skye has to be the best-kept secret in Scotland. It was the perfect, relaxing way to conclude the tour.

We have looked at our photos many, many times since returning home and will continue to enjoy the memories of the trip of a lifetime. Our tour of Scotland has also made us rethink some of the things we do. The Scots obvious love and appreciation for the land touched us. I am already taking more time to tend to my gardens after seeing the beautiful plants that surround all of the homes in Scotland.

Sandy, please keep doing what you are doing because you do it so well. With our deepest gratitude and appreciation, thank you,
Kathy Dove

Sandy, we had a great trip and I know it was a trip of a lifetime for Duane and Christie. Thanks for all you did to make it special. We'll keep in touch. Diehl Group, Toured Scotland, May 2007.

Hello Sandy, I just want to let you know how very much we enjoyed touring "your Scotland". You took us to see so many unusual and little known places, as well as introducing us to Scottish music, your culture and your wonderful people. We came to know the beautiful countryside of our ancestors, and don't believe we could have gotten the full picture of Scotland without you. We highly recommend you as a tour guide and thank you so very much for making our tour personal, and tailored to us. Arlene Heggen, Toured Scotland, May 2006.

Sandy, Hello from Oregon. We are back home and getting back into the routine of work. We would like to thank you for a wonderful tour of Scotland! We all came away with great experiences and a deeper understanding of what Scotland is really all about. Thanks for all that you did to accommodate our different interest areas. The website of your photos of our trip is really great. Thanks especially for the trip to Balmoral Castle. It really meant a great deal to my mother and her sister to make that connection with their grandfather’s association with the castle. We would all like to return sometime in the future and see even more of Scotland. Joel Bailie.

The experience in Scotland exceeded our expectations, which were high because we had heard such wonderful things about your country. Our family enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you, and the tour was a great blend of history, beautiful scenery, and simple relaxation. Your insight into every day life in Scotland and your willingness to share that with us made the trip all the more enjoyable. I particularly am grateful for your arranging the time on the Tay with Jock; I definitely wish to return to fish. Alison did a terrific job driving and guiding us as well and went the extra mile in every way to ensure we had a great time. Finally, we all enjoyed the humor you both provided; your stories and asides will continue to bring a smile to our faces when we think about our trip. I look forward to a return visit. Bill Kitchens. Toured Scotland, May 2006.

Sandy, We want to thank you for a wonderful Scottish vacation. We appreciate your flexibility in allowing us to meet and visit with our Scottish relatives and still see many parts of "back road" Scotland. We enjoyed our stay at the Atholl Arms Hotel. The staff was polite and the food was excellent. If you are ever in Central Texas, we trust you would call us so we could give you a tour of our part of Texas, the Hill Country. Sincerely, Bill and Bette Taylor. Toured Scotland, August 2006.
