Testimonials:
Looking at all the beautiful photos and videos taken in Scotland it brings back fond memories of a wonderful time spent under your guidance. We will always think back of you as a person with a keen interest in the history and general knowledge of Scotland as well as a great gentleman who dresses very smartly.
It was clear to us that this beautiful land is very close to your heart and therefore we enjoyed the information and anecdotes told so much more.
Christie and Sophiemarie Fourie (Capetown)

Just to let you know how much we enjoyed the day you guided us in Glasgow; informative, humorous, professional and pleasant. The MacKintosh Sunday was one of the highlights of our garden tour to Scotland. 
Thank you! Kind Regards,
Rose-Marie (Dutch Garden Tours)

Thank you very much for guiding us around Glasgow and Central Scotland.  Several of our group have commented that you are an excellent guide, and that you know when to speak, and when not to!  
Several were very impressed by the Falkirk Wheel, and of course by all the more classic sites.  
You helped us greatly by advising on our programme.
We all enjoyed our visit to Glasgow, 
Thanks from us all.
