Marjorie Preston

Languages:

Hi Colleagues,  I am still the familiar Marjorie, but wish now to be known as Preston instead of Brown

I am an enthusiastic and often passionate guide who takes great delight in showing my visitors the very best of Scotland.   While I always commentate on our exciting, sometimes wild history, I also believe that guests wish to hear a lot about relevant facts of Scotland today.   While I primarily guide with English, German, Swiss and French speaking groups and individuals, I have experience in guiding others from Scandinavia, Romania and The Netherlands to name but a few.  I am passionate about sport and love supporting tennis, football, golf and rugby.

"We wish to express our admiration for Ms Brown's ability in giving us "The best Scotland tour ever!"  The unforgettable journey was personable, well executed with a unique atmosphere only she can provide. With the Scottish heritage flowing through her veins, so does her deep passion and patriotism for her country."    Highland Reign    April 2012

"Sie haben diese kurze Reise zu einem Erlebnis gemacht'     Trend Tours September 2013

Unser Kunde war mit Ihrer Betreuung, Führung und vor allem mit Ihrem grossen Wissen sehr zufrieden.   Wir werden uns gerne an Sie wenden, sollten wir wieder eine Gruppe nach Scottland haben.    Neubauer July 2013

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié votre travail et vos explications.  Grâce à vous, nous avons appris à connaître L 'Ecosse, les Êcossais et cela nous a vraiment plu.  Groupe Tonnau July 2013

I would like to thank you for finding this guide for me.   Marjorie Preston was excellent, far beyond my expectations.   Magda Loba May 2014
