I've always wanted to go to Scotland and see the place my family was from, however I did not want a large bus tour. I found Best Scottish tours and investigated it with the help of Karen, who was very good at answering questions, and giving information on places to stay when I arrived and also getting around.

I visited Dunoon over the Easter period and loved it! So much I have decided I wish to move from Italy to Scotland! It is hard to explain exactly what I have fallen in love with, the beautiful sea view or the beautiful countryside at the back? The people that will stop to say hi and chat? The relaxed atmosphere?... More

We had a wonderful time with one just other couple on our tour. (The others had canceled, and we were happy to find out that this company will go forward with a tour as long as at least two people are scheduled.) Our driver was knowledgeable and helpful whenever we asked questions. He was flexible and adapted to our interests.... More

Dear Lucy G, thanks for taking time to review your recent 7 Day tour with us. We pride ourselves on adaptability and flexibility, even within our non-customised tours. Any good tour company should be able to react to what is going on at the time, rather than pushing ahead and missing the good stuff! This is why we don't advertise... More
