A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second tour with Martin. He took us outside Edinburgh and it was nice to see the landscape of Scotland. He is full of information and we learned a great deal about the people, heritage and history. His driver was also a very nice person, courteous and punctual. Had a lovely day.
