Martin and Alex(our driver) were really passionate and considerate. They planned the trip very well so that we had an unforgettable experience of visiting ancient Scottish people's house. We then had a very pleasant luch, during which we discussed a lot about Scottish and Chinese cultures. Martin had been to China and they were both very friendly and expansive. By the way, Martin looked great wearing the kilt! It's a warm and happy journey!
