We had such a fun day with Bill R. in Scotland! He took us to a quaint little town called Luss. He took my husbands health issues in consideration when choosing where to go. He gave us so much background and answered all our questions. Bill is so friendly and kind and if we ever make it back to Scotland I hope we can see Bill again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda Thank you so much for your kind review. I really appreciate it. I have written to you privately through this website. Bill

We have completed a 13 day cruise with approximately 10 land tours. Bill's was one of the most memorable. It was definitely the most comfortable. We felt like he was an old friend picking us up at the port and showing us his home town. Bill was the best part of the tour. He was knowledgeable, delightful, funny, intelligent and a good driver. We also loved his co Jaguar.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matt & Christine for the great review. It really was kind of you to write it. I have written to you via the email system.

This was a fantastic trip with a lovely man with a great sense of humor. we went to the loveliest of a town 120 people and spent a good deal of time mingling with people and enjoying this gem. We, as always, spent a good deal of time learning about the country, socioeconomic conditions, health care, universities. We did not regret our decision to skip the city and journey though the countryside. We wish we had had more time with this terrific gentleman.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Audrey and David Thank you for your review. I am so glad it went well and the weather was kind.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alexey Thanks for the 5 stars. I really appreciate it. Glen Coe as always is amazing. So glad you agreed. Best wishes Bill

Bill was awesome. Just a great tour. He maximized our time and we saw way more than anyone else would have been able to show me. No way you can do better. 5 billion stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bryan. That is some score. It was great to meet you.
Bill is top notch. We had a fabulous day. Bill is very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. We didn't want the day to end. We liked him sooo much, we invited him to Canada. I would highly recommend Bill....you will surely have a great day. I give Bill a 10 out of 10. That's pretty high marks. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rona for taking the time to write this review. I am so pleased you enjoyed the tour so much. I do hope you come back again. It was great fun! Bill

Bill is a fountain of information and the day with him was excellent indeed. He is witty, flexible and so proud to show off his city. The spur of the moment plan to listen to an organ concert at an art museum was fantastic. Five star tour and a 5 star guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I am really pleased you enjoyed the tour so much. The organ recital as you know is free of charge and the accoustics incredible. I have experienced it many times but never tire of it.Glad you are all safe and well and that your experience of Scotland was a positive one. Bill

My husband and I have used Tours By Locals many times and we highly recommend Bill. He was very interesting and knowledgeable. We were able to see many sites even though the weather did not cooperate.

Justin NolanUnited States
Bill in one word to describe his tour of Glasgow and Loch Lomond is AMAZING! He took us all over his wonderful city and beyond. He was very knowledgeable as a life long Glaswegian and really understood what we wanted in a full day's experience. His car is very comfortable to ride in and we definitely saw parts of Scotland we would've otherwise missed had it not been for his expertise. He's very personable as well. If you really want to experience Glasgow look no further than Bill. Thanks Bill!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have only just left you. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am delighted that you had a good time. You have to come back because there is really so much more to see. You are only a short flight away. Haste ye back

Bill is an excellent guide who took us to Lock Lomond and Glasgow. He has a beautiful Jaguar which drives like a dream. I sat in the front seat and my wife was in the rear seat. She had a bit of a hard time hearing some of the dialogue from the rear seat. Bill has an excellent fund of knowledge and a very easy-going manner. The tour covers a lot of ground and if you would like time to shop you need to tell Bill ahead of time to include that in his plans for you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the terrific review. I am really glad you both had a good time. The weather was not at its best but it did brighten up later which was good. I note what you say about speaking louder in the car. Sometimes it can be difficult striking the right balance - too loud or too quiet! I have a really nice photograph of us back at the ship and will send it to you shortly. You make a good point re shopping. I will give some thought to a shopping tour. Haste ye Back! best wishes Bill
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review score Sheldon. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour so much. best wishes Bill
John DoanUnited States
Thank you..thank you..thank you. This one was definitely the best tour we had had during our 25 days tour of Europe & the British Isles. Bill was so down-to-earth with his vast knowledge not only from his hometown, Glasgow and Scotland, but the history and culture & everyday events. Our group of 8 really enjoyed and appreciated the extra effort that Bill & Keith put together for us. It was a positive & wonderful experience. Again, thank you for making our trip more enjoyable. - John & group
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind response. It was good fun alright. Keith and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and we look forward to seeing you all again. Maybe you can all stay longer next time? Bill
Matt BrestleUnited States
Excellent, informative and pleasant gentleman. His Jaguar is impeccable and he had several golf umbrellas for use during a brief shower. Bill is very willing to listen to your desires and change the tour on a whim! He really entertained myself, my father and my two sons. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Matt. I really appreciate your comments. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. I hope your next few days in Glasgow are memorable. best wishes Bill
