Kevin did a fantastic job of asking what we were interested in, and then tailoring an experience for us that catered to our wide range of interests. He is also very friendly and fun to spend the day with! I also appreciated the fact that he is extremely knowledgeable about whiskey, and made it a day to remember for me. This was especially important given that my spouse in a non-drinker. Despite that, she enjoyed that aspect of the tour very much, which is a testament to Kevin’s skill as a story teller and guide extraordinaire! We spent four days in Scotland and the day with Kevin was by far the best. He even texted us occasionally in the days following the tour to check in and see if we needed advice, dining suggestions, etc., which turned out to be extremely useful. I highly recommend booking with Kevin for a tour!
We had a fantastic day seeing Edinburgh with Kevin. Being a native Scot myself, I thought I knew Edinburgh quite well, but Kevin showed us round some hidden gems that I would never have known about. He is really knowledgable and was full of interesting facts and stories. His taxi is immaculate and is obviously his pride and joy. He could not have been more helpful especially with all our bags! Best thing we did on our trip by a mile.
We took our elderly mother on a day tour with Kevin. The tour was great and Kevin was really patient with our slow progress around the sites. Some interesting tales and views of parts of the area you would never normally visit. We had a great coffee stop as recommended by Kevin and all in all a thoroughly enjoyable day out. If you have time for just one tour then contact Kevin; you won't be disappointed....By the way Kevin, the rissotto wasn't on the menu 😀
