Lovely Day in St. Andrews.

Our guide Adrian was excellent. He shared a wealth of information with. Truly personal touch for each guest. We we able to really see St Andrews and fishing villages in all their glory. An hour was a little long for the options in Anstruther. Maybe a little less time there and a little more in St Andrews. ITT was a wonderful way to see a beautiful part of Scotland.

Our guide, Eric, told great stories, knew the history cold, and when re-routed down a single lane village road drove with amazing skill. We had a wonderful sunny day exploring the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral, visiting St. Andrews golf course and watching huge baskets of lobsters being pulled in by fishermen in Anstruther. Terrific tour!

The tour was good - Andrew T was our tour guide- he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the kingdom of Fife and St. Andrews. I didn't have a enough time to do both St. Andrews cathedral & golf course - I thought they were closer together or at least within walking distance- the town though is very nice and lots of places to eat- I think I could have spent the whole day at st Andrew instead of making short stops at other towns

St Andrews Day Trip!

It was a great day. My husband and I loved the tour guided by Paul, he was a great story teller and really gave a good overview! The stops were perfect - we stopped at a little fishing town and went to the vintage tea room and it was amazing. Then the time spent in St. Andrews was perfect! Amazing day all around

We traveled with Marty. He narrated mostly with a deep, mystifying voice, which composed perfectly with Scottish landscape, monuments, history nicely selected stories, far from being boring, and even jokes. We visited beatiful places and the breathtaking town of St Andrews. Don't hesitate - it's worth every pound, you spend - we enjoyed every minute of the trip to the very end you'll get some very useful information of Edinburgh too. Thanks, Marty. It was a pleasure to travel with you.

Highly recommend for a day trip! You get three hours to explore St. Andrews and you get to stop along the way at different villages on the cost. Small tour is the best, because you have more interaction with the guide and people on the trip.

Lovely area, and interesting history. The guide Mark, was very knowledgeable and funny and provided lots of information and other hints on tours and travel. Must see is the ruins of the St. Andrew Cathedral and Castle and the joint ticket was extra but worth the 9 Pounds. St Andrews is a nice little town to wander and good food and shopping can be done. If you have time stop in for a wee nip of whiskey!
