Awesome Castles
Aug 2019
Great castle tour. Our tour guide was amazing and so full of information and history about the places we visited, she was also easy to understand. Loved that it was a small tour bus, only 16 people, so we didn't have to fight the crowd to get into places. The castles we toured were very diverse; from ruins to the elaborately decorated. Would have preferred staying in the same place as all the other passengers so we could have gotten to know them better. Didn't like the last place we stayed at, Knockomie Inn; the room was very outdated, their restaurant was the only place within 20 min walk to eat at and they were booked out until 8:30 pm (two of our party were turned away because they were completely booked), took a long time to sign in and a long time to find someone to sign us back out. The other place we stayed at for 2 days, Aberdeen Allan Guest House, was amazing and I would go back there anytime. Beautifully updated, very sweet and helpful hosts and very large rooms w/en-suite bathroom.

Best way to discover Scotland
What better way to discover this great country than with a history and geology profesor as your guide?! Sean has a wealth of knowledge about history, nature and his country and shares this in the most eloquent form. He really takes you back in time to relive the stories from the past giving you an adequate view of the country he loves so much. The tour is well organized whilst remaining open for adventurous side trips. We truly enjoyed every second!
