We had an excellent day touring with Bill. His tour was professional and thorough with several additional small stops, not in the itinerary, added to the route. Our disabled son and Bill seemed to bond, making the time fun for him and easier for us. Thanks to Bill we saw a scenic part of Scotland, and really feel our days in Scotland were the best of the trip. Lastly, the ride was very comfortable in Bill's deluxe vehicle. A jaguar is a ride the average joe in the states never enjoys! 5 stars
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy so much. I have replied privately to you through the Tours by Locals email system.
This tour was spectacular. I have wanted to see the Scottish countryside for years and was not disappointed. Bill is very well informed about the area and was so accomodating. The vehicle was very comfortable. Plenty of room for 4 guests. Bill has a good sense of humour and we enjoyed his jokes and his lovely singing!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Please do come back again and see some more further north. Glad you liked The Blythswood Hotel as a base. Best hotel in Glasgow with the Highlands only a short drive away. Thank you for your kind words and a fab 5 stars. Also pleased you liked my big Jaguar "The Duchess".

Bill was a terrific tour guide for the day! The private tour was everything we had hoped for and more. I loved how he kept our 14 year old son entertained and was flexible, accommodating and fun to spend the day with. I highly recommend spending a private day trip with Bill. I know you won't be sorry you did. The pick up and drop off at the cruise port was super easy and I would book again with Bill if ever we get the chance to return to Glasgow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sherry. I really appreciate your review. It was so kind of you to take the time to write it. Bill

We spent an absolutely wonderful day with Bill. He is very entertaining and user friendly! We started with a visit to Luss which did not disappoint, took a tour of Inverary Castle and gardens, ate a delicious lunch at the Castle, made a stop at the George Hotel pub, with plenty of wonderful sightseeing and stops along the way. Bill is very knowledgeable and easy going. GREAT tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. I really enjoyed your company.

Great guy and fun to travel with. Bill was pleasant and considerate of his passengers. His Jag was smaller than my super V8 Jag so it was a bit tight for 3 normal sized people in the back seat as it is in mine also. He took us where we wanted to go and we enjoyed the area and his company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I am surprised about your comments regarding the Jaguar XJ6 as it is considered a huge car here in the UK. I do accept that the car is more comfortable with two people in the back rather than three -- but this applies to any vehicle. The car is very safe and that is why I chose it. I am pleased you had a good day and I know that you all enjoyed the experience of Inverary Caste. It is just a magical place.

This was our second tour with Bill. We toured with him about 2 years ago and requested him again when we came back last month to Scotland. He is an outstanding guide and has become a wonderful friend. He is funny, knowledgeable, and and very flexible to work with. i highly recommend Bill to anyone who tours Scotland. You will have a wonderful experience. We couldn't ask for anything more. shelley
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both so much for your kind words. I am delighted that you chose me once again for your travel plans. It was a great day out and the weather was fantastic. I hope to see you both again.

We had a wonderful day on this tour. Our cruise ship docked in Greenock and Bill (tourguide) met us right at the Pier. He is easygoing and friendly with lots of interesting and fun stories to tell about the local area. This is a beautiful place with lots of picture taking opportunities, perfect for a private tour. Bill even took us to a local golf course (our request), which we enjoyed very much. He made us feel like we were hanging out with an old friend. Would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking time to give this lovely review. I am so glad you all enjoyed yourselves so much. You were all such good company. Sometimes on these tours it is the unexpected that takes you by surprise and The Carrick Golf Club was one of those surprises wasn't it? I told my grandchildren about the nice folks from Texas --- and they looked surprised and hoped that you would TEXT US! When I told them it was a place where people live they had a hard time believing me. "Haste ye Back".
