A Recent Review of this tour

Kirsten is an unbelievably great tour guide. She not only helped us set up tee times at St. Andrews she entertain our wives and kept them happy and took them to lunch and toured St. Andrews while the guys played golf. Kirsten was more like a visiting a family member that lived in Scotland than a tour guide. She knew all the great places for the girls shop so the guys didn't have to. She got us out on the 18th fairway of the Old course for photos and didn't get us arrested. Kirsten & James K. are the best
