Day 3 of our tours with Toby was custom designed to visit the abbeys meaningful to us. Toby's advice on taking self guiding tour, listening to the docent or just walking through were right on. He's a pro at sharing knowledge about each stop and suggesting delicious pub lunches and stopping for great photo ops.

We had Toby for 4 days; met us at the hotel at 10:00, back no later than 4-4:45pm. Covered Edinburgh and toured outside the city in a very comfortable car. He knows his subjects extremely well and has a pleasant personality. Toby was very amenable to customizing, so if there's something you want, that you do not see described in the tour, just ask. I have placed this same review for all four tours because we saw so much and loved every bit of it. This was a trip of a lifetime.

We enjoyed seeing the beautiful Scottish countryside with Toby, a knowledgeable and relaxed guide who adjusted his itinerary to avoid crowds and to show us some less touristy places that were charming. He was also a great source of information for the best restaurants near our hotel.

Toby's knowledge of the Abbeys is amazing. We really appreciated the drive around Edinburgh but the drive through to countryside was perfect to the abbeys. The stop for lunch in Melrose was great way to spend a rainy afternoon, before going out again. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Toby. We had to make several adjustments to our schedule and he was so gracious and accommodating. We could not have asked for someone more knowledgeable about history and architecture, which made our tour even more enjoyable. Toby has a great whit about him which made the tour delightful. We would recommend him highly and would take another tour with him if we get the chance to return to Scotland.

We thank Toby for his excellent service and a depth of knowledge. At Traquair House a videoshoot of men and horses in Medieval outfits was an impromptu, unscheduled, and fantastic start to the day. Next lunch in Galashiels. Wandering Melrose Abbey Toby continued to demonstrate his knowledge of these ancient sites. Toby drove back 5 miles himself when I realized I'd left my camera in a gift shop, and left other forgotten items at our lobby desk! Truly an honorable man possessing a thorough knowledge!

Toby was a superb guide with deep knowledge of the Abbeys, and about Scotland and its history in general. He was punctual, charming and very solicitous. We requested a last minute change in plan which he accommodated with no issues. We also had a few personal needs that Toby was very helpful with, again with professionalism. We loved our tour and our fine guide. Highly recommended.

Toby was an excellent guide. He has extensive (& interesting) knowledge of Scottish history and the Abbeys we visited. This was definitely a 5 star tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed guiding you and it is always better for me if people are interested.
