I am a Private Guide that offers Private tours from Glasgow (Greenock). I was born and grew up on the west coast of Scotland and although I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia, I have returned to my roots here in this exceptionally beautiful part of the world, Largs, Ayrshire.
My personal interests include architecture, photography, Scottish history, geography and meeting people from all walks of life.
My private tours are designed to create wonderful and lasting memories of beautiful Scotland. I specialize in shore excursions from cruise ships arriving at Glasgow (Greenock) and I am experienced, knowledgeable and committed to providing world class service. I am based in Largs, Ayrshire on the west coast of Scotland and I will meet you at and return you to, any place in and around Greenock, Glasgow or North Ayrshire. My spacious 8 passenger minibus allows you to venture and stop at places of interest where big vehicles can not go, while offering you personal attention and interaction with myself.
All of my tours are flexible and may be customized to your needs. I welcome stopping for impromptu photo sessions and providing information on historical or cultural sites as we pass by.
I very much look forward meeting you during your visit to "Bonnie Scotland".
A Recent Review of this guide
George is delightful. He thoroughly enjoys being a tour guide and sharing his knowledge about the city he loves, the history of Scotland and his interest in art with visitors. It rained periodically and George went to great lengths to ensure our comfort. Despite the gloomy weather our day with George was a lot of fun. He listened to what we wanted to do and see, and made sure to include all our "wants." We highly recommend him.
