    Our driver and guide, Tom, was attentive and fun. Only wanted to give us the best experience for our short visit. We enjoyed his commentary and our tour with him. Thank you Tom and Timberbush tours.

    Andrew, our hiking guide, made our trip unforgettable. His knowledge, passion & jokes elevated the experience. The hike was a true highlight, filled with stunning landscapes and newfound friendships. Highly recommend!

    We did this excursion in a cold month and for the reason of likely having few participants other than ourselves; we were spot on. There were two of us and we had a great time exploring the Devils Pulpit. We were given time to take pictures, our guide took pictures for us with our phone, and we were given opportunity to ask questions. The trip was instructed with great safety. Ferenac does drive fast but I never felt endangered and was happy for prompt transport. He even dropped us off at Gllascow Chapel and Necropolis on the way back to the meeting point. We would definitely take this adventure again. Thanks!!!

    We had the best time! The drive was pleasant and we drove though beautiful Scottish countryside scenery. The hike starts out going across some fields where we could see the waterfall in the distance. Ferenc pointed out heather and grouse during our trail. The hike was fantastic, the views spectacular and the air was fresh and clean. Ferenc's expertise was appreciated as he guided us down the trail to the base of the waterfall. He checked things out by going ahead and then coming back and telling us what we would do to be most safe. He gave us step by step directions when climbing down part of the waterfall and I always felt safe, even though it seemed very challenging at times.
    Ferenc will take many amazing photos of you on this lovely adventure. It was by far the most fun and one of a kind experience I have had in the UK. I will definitely do this again and highly recommend Ferenc wherever her is available.

    Very fun day out. The highland cows are super cute and the kids went crazy with walking the alpacas. The Scottish countryside is beautiful.

    The guide was very friendly and accommodating and good with the kids.

    What an amazing tour. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable and made the trip much better. Not only did we have great landscapes, as he always had great historical facts and anecdotes on all our stops. Not to mention that we were able to cover a lot of places. Definitely recommended.

    Stuart was amazing from first contact online thru our tour!
    I arranged a private tour with him to 3 castles in Outlander for my husband and I when our cruise ship stopped in Scotland 1 day. He created a timeline and itinerary specific for our ships times. My husband had no knowledge of Outlander before this and loved Stuart and truly enjoyed the whole day! Stuart even introduced us to a local Scottish beverage and had snacks for us for the day. He was a true pleasure and made our day in Scotland remarkable. I would highly recommend him- you will not be disappointed!

    Spent a wonderful day touring and learning about Scotland from Stewart, who truly is a local Scot with a great passion for Scotland. Our tour group of 4, arrived by Emerald Princess and spent the day learning about the history of Greenock and the Clyde River. We also learned about the importance that the area had with respect to World War II. Our tour included learning about Sir William Wallace, Braveheart with visiting areas where he made history. As we spent the day with Stewart driving us about, he took us to monuments and view points, many of which motor coaches would not have access to. At the historical monuments and locations, Stewart would take quick group photos of us and then emailed them to us after the tour. Thank you Stewart for a GREAT day in Scotland!

    If you want to see the “ Real Scotland” you must book one of the many tours Tartan Tours has to offer. Stewart masterfully crafted our four day Scottish tour based on our interests. He was able to curate a trip of a lifetime , keeping in mind my love of small villages, castles and picturesque landscapes and my cousin’s love for William Wallace and Robert Bruce. We were able to see so many beautiful and historic sites in our limited time in Scotland.
    Prior to the trip Stewart was a pleasure to work with, I was able to communicate my dietary needs( vegetarian and gluten free) and he did some preplanning to scope out restaurants near the hotel where I would be able to find food options.
    From the moment Stewart picked us up at the airport to the moment he dropped us off at our hotel back in the city for the end of last leg of our vacation, Stewart was warm, welcoming, patient and attentive. He greeted us enthusiastically each morning he picked us up in his comfortable vehicle, with a personalized snack and water waiting for us, and ensured we had reservations for dinner each evening.
    The tour package we purchased included lodging and breakfast at the Spinnaker Hotel. The lodging and hospitality was unsurpassed and the views of the River Clyde from the hotel were breathtaking.
    This was truly an experience I will always remember.

    The favorite part of this tour was simply the fact we booked through Stewart at TartanTours. The entire day was perfect! Stewart and his team are ultimate professionals, and the epitome of "Scottish hospitality"! Even on a cool, partly-rainy day in Scotland, were were comfortable the entire day thanks to Stewart. We are devoted "Outlander" fans from the US, but thanks to the TV show we're now very fascinated with Scottish history. Stewart did a fantastic job weaving the facts and fiction into a most memorable day. Even if you're not familiar with the TV show, all of the places we toured have major historical significance. TV producers are obviously going to use the most picturesque and interesting locations for authenticity!

    What a wonderful time my cousin and I had as Stewart as our guide. Authentic, knowledgeable, passionate, and very personable. It is great to be with someone who not only loves his culture and history of Scotland, but shares it in a way where you feel you are back in time envisioning all the stories. We are already planning our next adventure to Scotland with Stewart as our guide once again! Thank you Stewart for your passion and sense of humor. It was truly a blessing to meet you and to leave not only as customers, but as friends! Many Blessings! …Heidi
