Martin is the best!!! He is knowledgeable, friendly and has good since of humor. He also anticipated our needs like food and using toilets. As soon as we arrived at the Old Course, he took a table with the best spot overlooking the golf course. Then, he drove us around to see St Andrews University, ruins on St. Andrews Castle and St Andrews Cathedral. He explained in details the history of these places. For lunch, he reserved a table for us, so we did not have to wait to be seated. Very organized.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marietta For your kind words. For me it was a joy to tour with your family. Even though Rex.forgot his golf shoes it was obvious that he loved his golf lesson. Haste ye Back Martin

Martin was an excellent guide and gave us a wonderful day at St. Andrews that we will always remember. Alister was a very good driver and we also enjoyed his company. I highly recommend this tour with Martin because he is very knowledgeable and met all of our needs for an amazing day.

Martin was a wonderful guide! The weather did not cooperate but he made the tour interesting and fun. The stop to see the cathedral ruins in St. Andrews was very wet but he was patient as my family roamed around outside taking in the site. Martin and his driver (Alastair) were knowledgeable of the area and enjoyed sharing the history. Martin arranged for lunch at the golf course where we watched very wet golfers enjoy the course, and introduced us to fun shops along the course. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Dolores I am happy the weather did not spoil the day for you. Haste he Back Martin

Martin was a fantastic tour guide. We were able to see exactly what we wanted to and do what we wanted to. He was very accommodating and we would both highly recommend using Martin and his tour skills. He is truly an authentic Scotchman, right down to the kilt. He was very personable and kind and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him. St. Andrews is even more beautiful than we imagined and as golfers it is something to see in your lifetime.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dixie it was a pleasure to meet and tour with you both. Haste ye Back Martin

The tour itself was wonderful. I highly recommend Martin he is a knowledgeable and great guide. HOWEVER, on the morning of the excursion, due to a communication error between Martin and my travel agent I was forced to pay an extra $200 dollars for a larger van because he had me down for only 7 guests, not the 13 I originally booked. This greatly detracted from our tour experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For the record the booking confirmation recieved from travel agent was for 7 visitors. I managed to obtain an alternative vehicle and leave on tour within 30 minutes. The extra payment was the normal difference in cost for this tour when using a 16 Seat in place of an 8 seat vehicle and no way covered the extra cost I paid to obtain a larger vehicle instantly.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We were sorry to hear about the miscommunication, and have refunded Mr Williams $200 for the extra cost of the rental.
