A Recent Review of this tour

Martin was a fantastic tour guide. We were able to see exactly what we wanted to and do what we wanted to. He was very accommodating and we would both highly recommend using Martin and his tour skills. He is truly an authentic Scotchman, right down to the kilt. He was very personable and kind and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him. St. Andrews is even more beautiful than we imagined and as golfers it is something to see in your lifetime.
