David was prompt and gracious. We had a customized tour and he accommodated our additional stops. I’m so grateful that we got to see unique castles that were meaningful to us and to visit a real Scottish distillery. David got us safely to and from all the locations! Thank you David!

BUYER BEWARE! at about $200 per person we expected a personal tour guide of the country sides we drove through and of the castles. Instead he offered the equivalent of a taxi service only. Four of us were crammed into a Small Skoda sedan. David was late picking us up with no advance communication. He was not engaging and most of the long car ride was in uncomfortable silence despite our efforts to engage him. He dropped us off in the parking lots of the castles and barely gave us enough time to see them. We didn’t even have enough time to do the audio tours so we couldn’t even appreciate those destinations. His information was no more extensive than what is written in his experience description. We felt very rushed to get to each distillery by the tour time even though we kept to his schedule, and he didn’t even offer proper direction to get to the start point of one distillery from the car park where he dropped us. All in all we were very disappointed in the value, quality and time spent on this experience. David agreed to give us a 50% refund based on our feedback at the end of our experience, but We only received 36%. This is not an experience. If you want to go to Doune, Stirling and the distilleries Uber there and save yourself several hundred dollars.
