4 Castles Tour- Nice Day !
Tripadvisor review: Four castles tour from Private Tours Edinburgh
” David picked us up right on time at our Airbnb. My communications via email prior to our visit were excellent. Our day started at Blackness Castle and then we proceeded to Linlithgow Palace. The snow started to fall as soon as we arrived. Next was Sterling Castle and the snow was really coming down. We dined at Unicorn Cafe and our sausage roll was delicious. Our last castle to visit was Doune Castle. David gave us historical commentary on each castle. We felt safe with his driving in inclement weather conditions. We enjoyed our day and would recommend. “
” Incredible experience, well worth it “
” What an incredible experience. Our guide knew all the best places, had great insight about all the areas, especially when it came to films and series that have been filmed in the area. We could go down narrow streets and remote areas regular tours and buses don’t go. A tremendous way to see the sights and the highlight of our entire trip. “

New five star review October 2023

Day Trip to Falkirk to Visit the World Famous Kelpies and Stirling Castle

“David was very accommodating. We had very foggy weather in the morning and could not see the Kelpies so he adjusted our schedule so that we would be able to see them later in the day. He gave us extra time to get everything in which we really appreciated. There definitely was not enough time at Stirling Castle. This stop should be a minimum of two hours as the guided tour is one hour, then there is no extra time to see anything else. Overall, it was well worth the day.”

Scotland adventure in a day.
Viator review:Full-Day Private Braveheart Tour from Edinburgh, small group tour
“Our tour guide David was very knowledgeable and perfect with timing, so we were able to see everything without being rushed, and had time to eat lunch and dinner.”
“An inspirational experience, we had not even heard of these magnificent beasts, the whole experience was fun and informative. Our guide for the tour inside one of the sculptures was so well-informed and very enthusiastic, she made a very good presentation which kept the whole group spellbound.”

New review April 2023

Outlander film location tour – visit five Outlander locations – five star review
David was an excellent driver and guide who cheerfully offered tidbits of accurate historical background, as well as filmmaking trivia related to Outlander, Game of Thrones, James Bond, Monty Python, Downton Abbey and other movies and television series that were filmed in areas of Scotland. Even though this was technically an “Outlander” tour, he was well versed in everything else you could think of, including one of my favorites: Doctor Who! He answered all my random questions about sites we passed and offered stories about others that I didn’t even know existed. He told me about natural geological features of the land and even explained some of the cultural differences between Highland and Lowland Scots. David knows the best routes to get to each location, where the entrances are, and where the ticket offices are located (if they’re separate from the entrances). He makes sure you see him when you come out, so you don’t need to worry about wandering around looking for him when you’ve finished looking at a site. I highly recommend this private tour service! It’s so much more personalized and efficient than group tours and coaches!

” Stunning ”

” David was an excellent guide and we got to see five awesome castles though Midhope we couldn’t go
inside. He explained history behind them and the tv and films that used them. It was a day of sun and
exploration ”
