Will is an excellent guide, and one we highly recommend. Plus he's a really nice guy too. He took us to see all that St Andrews has to offer including the best fish and chips as well this famous pastry shop where even the Queen orders her sweets. Not only did we see St Andrews but as well many quaint villages to and fro making it a true Scottish excursion. We don't think you can go wrong selecting Will for your Scotland adventures.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, thanks so much for the kind review. It was my pleasure to show you around my old haunts in and near St Andrews and make sure you got to some great places to eat. I had a fund day with you all and hope to see you all again some day.

Will was a knowledgeable and interesting guide. He is from St Andrews so he could give some history on life at the school and info on the golf course. I look for photos which no one else can get. He took us to a small fishing village, to the town where Outlander was filmed and even helped me with my new camera on the 17th hole at St Andrews and the St Andrews cathedral. Great history on the university too. Took us to the best fish and chips lunch this entire trip. He made the rain part of the experience

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie, It was a pleasure to meet you both and show you around the fair city of St Andrews. I'm always happy to take people to great fish and chips places, show them the best of St Andrews and even help them get some great photos when need be. The rain just made it more atmospheric ;-) Happy travels and I hope to see you again. Will

Wil was awesome. He was knowledgeable, flexible and bent over backwards for us. He went out of his way to help us see the sights of Edinburgh and St Andrews. We had a blast , highly recommend Wil and definitely worth the fee. Thank you Wil and hope our paths cross again.

Will was very informative. He took us to a lovely town just outside of Edinburgh and took us to an amazing Pub for lunch. He was prompt and his van was comfortable. Due to the limited parking and lines at the Castle he had to leave us quite often. He had very detailed Harry Potter inspirational details. He was adaptable and was able to handle our last minute requests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Annemarie thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am always happy to juggle things about to make sure everyone can do what they want unfortunately for you to visit the castle I couldn't park nearby and the National gallery has zero parking so it was drop off and pick up to save you walking and less guiding than I would normally do but it allowed you to do all the things you wanted and I am glad I got to show you off the beaten path places and get you to a good local pub. All the best, Will

William, our tour guide, was fabulous! His first-hand knowledge of the area made all the difference. He was able to show us places that only a "local" would know, and provided us with knowledgeable background information geared to our interests. Our day with William was the best tour of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, many thanks for the kind words and a fun day together. I am glad you liked the local insights and it’s great to hear it was the best tour of your trip. Many thanks, Will

Will was very friendly and a great source of information. He used our time very effectively.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronnie, Many thanks for the kind words and it was a pleasure to meet you. I was glad you were willing to change your golf tour time about to allow us to see more and not have to rush to get back to the ship which in turn allowed us to see a bit of Edinburgh as well. I’m very happy it turned into a good full day of St Andrews and a bit of Edinburgh for everyone. Happy travels and hope to see you again. Will

Our guide was William. He was excellent. He was waiting at the dock when we got off our cruise ship! We had a wonderful day in Fife where the guys had their dream come true golfing at St Andrews and the gals had a wonderful tour with Will. Cannot say enough, He was so friendly, knowledgeable and lots of fun! It will always be the highlight of our entire trio! Much Aloha for the wonderful memories!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Everett and Valerie, Many thanks for the kind words and all your kindness on the day, it was very much appreciated and I am so happy I could be part of your special day to St Andrews. Haste ye back to Scotland. Will

Will was a great guide and took us to St. Andrews as we requested and highlighted many of the significant parts of this quaint city. We did not request Edinburgh but rather chose to dwell on countryside and of course, the Old Course. He was quite knowledgeable about the university and the reformation as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Winston, many thanks for the review, it was a pleasure to meet you all and I am glad you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you in Scotland again some day, kind regards, Will
