This is a great day out with a variety of things to see and do. After driving over Britain's biggest bridge, The Queensferry Crossing if you are a fan of Outlander our first stop will be Falkland, home to Mrs Bairds guesthouse. Keen golfers may want to miss this and head directly to St Andrews, home of golf. Here you can take a walking tour of The Old Course, visit the British Golf Museum or just have your photo taken on the Swilcan Bridge. For whisky enthusiasts nearby Kingsbarns Distillery offers tours and tastings. We return to Edinburgh passing through some of the picturesque fishing villages on the East Neuk of Fife stopping if you wish for fish and chips at the multi award winning Anstruther Fish Bar.

A Recent Review of this tour

David was absolutely amazing! We fell in love with him immediately! Very personable and easy to talk to and full of knowledge! We had done an amazing tour of Edinburgh the day before with one David's colleagues and wanted to see more of the countryside this day . Not knowing exactly what we wanted to see, David took the lead and we had a fabulous day. This is about my 6th time i have used Tours by locals and I have an outstanding experience every Time! I'm sold on this group!
