Tour: #121715, Glasgow to South Queensferry, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Sep 25/18

Last day of our two week tour with Toby. Hard to say farewell to our guide and now friend. As promised Toby took us to discover Scottish sea glass, Falkirk locks, and Kelpie horses getting us to our airport hotel in a timely fashion. He made sure we visited all our desired spots, making our travel wishes come true. Toby's credentials are superb.

Date: Sep 24/18

Even though it was a bankers holiday Toby filled our Glasgow tour with wonderful architectural insights, Rennie MacKintosh designs, shopping spots, museum gems and convenient loo locations. He knows his stuff. The posted Glasgow motto, "People Make Glasgow", certainly applies to Toby as he designed our tour around us: "Toby Made Scotland" for us.

Date: Sep 23/18

Toby drove expertly along lovely winding roads to New Lanark for tour of mill village before taking us to our little known Heritage Centre in Crawfordjohn and got us to Rowallen Castle before dark so we could get photos. Excellent driver on single track roads and all the roundabouts.

Viewed sites in Oban including Toby's evening before discovery of McCraig Family Memorial at top of hill with gorgeous overlook. He took another scenic route via historic Luss, stopping at grocery for picnic supplies and had us comfortably settled into our castle BnB.

Tour: #121715, Mull to Oban, Salen, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Sep 21/18

Toby got us to Fort William on time for our Jacobite Steam Train ride. Needed to stretch our legs after riding so Toby stopped so we could walk at Dragon's Tooth Golf Course. As he dropped us off at Oban bnb Toby made sure we had dinner plans before heading to his lodgings. He was always so considerate.

Tour: #121715, Skye to Mull, Skye of Curr, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Sep 20/18

Ferry cancelled due to high winds so Toby devised alternate route and then unforeseen car trouble happened in Portree. (Toby had had car checked thoroughly over before we started trip.) While Toby got a rental car we souvenir shopped and were back on the road again in no time enjoying Skye's beautiful scenery. Like I have stated before he's a pro and can handle problems smoothly.

Tour: #121715, Inverness to Skye, Inverness, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Sep 19/18

One of us had lost Rx so Toby got us to local hospital for ER doctors advice. We continued on our journey rest assured. Toby drove south side of Loch Ness avoiding numerous tourist buses on a rainy windy day so we could sit back and enjoy the wet but beautiful Highland scenery. Just across Skye Bridge stopped for lovely lunch at Nice Cafe and Bookstore combining two of my favorites. As we drove to bnb he handled the hairpin turns smoothly. He's a pro!

Date: Sep 17/18

Toby's love of country and his depth of both current and historical knowledge were certainly evident. On his recommendation we added the unique, just opened, V&A Museum in Dundee viewing interesting exhibits on Ocean Liners and Scottish Design. Found Arbroath Abbey fascinating with Toby pointing us to a room off to the side we would have missed exhibiting the 1320 Declaration of Scottish Independence.

Date: Sep 16/18

Toby got us to the Dunkeld Cathedral just in time for church bell chimes and on to St Andrews to walk course on Sunday. He knew the best shops to get golf hats and ball markers. He's a wealth of knowledge on all fronts.

Toby was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and flexible with our agenda. We wanted to see as much of the highlands in one day as possible, and he did it! Some great stops along the way to stretch our legs and take in the beauty and history, a fabulous fresh fish lunch in Oban. It was amazing. Toby's Land Rover was quite comfortable and clean for a long day and comfortably fit 4 adults in addition to Toby. I would highly recommend you book a tour with Toby.

Tour: #121715, Custom tour Edinburgh to Hadrians Wall, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Aug 20/18

We enjoyed our special tour of the Scottish Borders and Roman ruins with Toby very much. He is a wealth of knowledge and really enjoys what he does. We had a great adventure touring Melrose Abbey, Jedburgh Abbey, some wonderful Roman ruins. Alas, we didn't ever find the elusive Hadrian's Wall but Toby did get us to our train on time. All in all, it was a fun and interesting day. There is just so much to see! We would love to do this again and highly recommend Toby to visitors in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry there was just not enough time to do the Abbeys and Hadrian's wall itself in time for your 5pm train. Chesters hill fort actually has more Roman remains to see than Hadrians wall itself that requires more time than we had before getting to Newcastle.

Toby was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable about all things Scottish including history, culture, geography and current events. He was very accommodating. We had a large group that wanted a customized tour which made things more complicated but Toby provided us with a lovely day.
