    It was awesome! It was all we could expect ! John , our driver , was great ! The golf course looked like it does on TV !

    Excellent tour guide! Energetic, humorous, and informative. We loved exploring St. Andrews with the town square, ruins of the cathedral, and university. Added bonuses to our intent of just seeing the Old Course of St. Andrews. Plenty of time to walk about, enjoy a quick lunch of fish n chips, and shop at the golf shops. The small fishing village of Fife was also lovely with a quick coffee stop, bathroom break, and boutique shopping where we purchased a few newborn outfits for our baby.

    We went on this trip with Roland from Rabbies. The bus was small but comfortable and he did an amazing job of pointing out sites and trying to recreate the atmosphere with voices, songs and music- honestly so funny! He was really helpful with recommendations at each stop. The stops themselves were wonderful- so beautiful each had something to do. St. Andrews is amazing whether or not you like golf

    Excellent tour and fabulous tour guide, Roland. Let Rabbie’s know please. Backed a lot into 8 hours.

    Although it was great to see St. Andrew's the rest of the excursion was just Ok. The rest we could have done with out. Our guide was good.

    We had such a great time on this tour and Eric N was a fantastic tour guide. Plenty of time to explore on your own and the village stops are great.

    We had a great time seeing St. Andrews! Richard was an informative guide, and he gave a great recommendation for lunch - Blackhorn Burgers. We enjoyed the quick stop at the quaint Fishing Village at Anstruther and even more fun seeing the sights in St. Andrews. The ruins are amazing with the backdrop of the ocean behind them, golf was being played, students were busy at the University there, and shops were a delight.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour from start to finish. Our tour guide Francizca was amazing. She was very witty warm and welcoming and interacted with everybody all day. Her knowledge of the places we visited was mind blowing and they way she told the stories about each place was so interesting and mesmerising. We also had a lots time in all our stops. We would highly recommend this tour.

    We enjoyed our personal small group tour to St. Andrews and the Fishing Villages of Fife. Our guide Richard was very informative and knowledgeable regarding the surrounding areas. Since my husband and I are both golfers it would have been nice if there was additional time allocated in St. Andrews. There is a lot to see walking and exploring this historic town.

    Trip was fine and exactly as described. That said, would have preferred that St. Andrews stop was longer, and that other stops (particularly Falkland Palace) were shorter or eliminated. Driver was interesting, but was too much at times.
