Tour: #242926, Inveraray Castle and Jail via Loch Lomond, Greenock, Scotland, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Aug 5/18

We thought Kirsten J was a fine guide, very flexible, wanting to know what we were interested in. The 3 of us were somewhat disappointed in the scenery, expecting it to be more spectacular than it was. This does not reflect on Kirsten as a guide [she has no control over the scenery], but she kept commenting on how beautiful the towns and landscape were that we were going to see which increased our anticipation. We are all world travelers, but I think we needed to go further north into the Highlands.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi ladies, I’m so sorry that the tour didn’t meet your expectations, I genuinely am. If we had more time I would have been thrilled to take you further into the Highlands where you would have seen the wilder landscapes you had envisioned. I genuinely love the area I took you through, but I’m really sorry it wasn’t what you expected. I hope you get a chance to come back and travel a bit further into some wilder highland territory. I’m sorry ladies x

Kirsten provided us an outstanding tour and allowed us to make changes. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Scotland and the specific sites we visited. By the way, she also came with a bag of goodies (food) for all 6 of us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your lovely feedback Alan, really appreciate it! It was a pleasure showing off some of our highlands to you all, I’m so glad the weather played ball. Lol Have an amazing time on the remainder of your trip. Best regards to everyone. Xx

Kirsten a delight in every way. She was waiting as I got off the ship. Enthusiastic, energetic and caring guide. We had a marvellous day and enjoyed the spectacular scenery and beautiful Ancient towns. We saw many important sites from the Outlander series. I was having difficulty walking, she was able to drive closer to sites so we could see them without walking too far. Highly recommended guide! If I'm ever in Scotland again I will arrange to visit with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely review Judi! It was my absolute pleasure to tour with you and learn a bit about you, your family & your travels...I loved my day. I’m so glad we got around as much as we did, and it means the world to me that you enjoyed it. Have a fabulous time on the remainder of your trip, and I am always here if you ever need me. Hugs, Kirsten x

The very best experience I can recall for a long time. Kirsten is so easy to feel comfortable with and so knowledgeable about many facets of Scotland and the areas we went to. She has an amazing ability with people and I felt after a day with her I could have stayed for hours more chatting and learning from her. Thank you Kirsten for the incredibly beautiful places you took me and the information you shared . I hope we can do this again in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kerrie, this feedback means the whole world to me, it truly does. I loved our day together, and it is one I will remember for a very long time. I also was sad to leave you! Lol. Such awesome, special places...and now a wee bit of your heart is in glencoe forever. I will always think of you when I visit, and I will send you some pictures of my travels. Thanks for an amazing day. Hugs my friend xx

Kirsten picked us up on time and right from the start we felt really comfortable with her, and chatted away throughout the whole day. Her enthusiastic pleasant attitude was great and she was happy to change any aspect of her tour to ensure we had the best day out. There was water, nibbles and chocolates for us which was an added unexpected bonus, she gave us lots of additional information about Scotland and helpful travel tips. Kirsten went the extra mile and we had an awesome day with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Karen & Gill...that means the world to me, really does. I am so glad I both enjoyed your day, I loved getting to know you both...the chocolate was just a wee bonus! Lol I hope you have an amazing time on the remainder of your trip..if I can help, just ask! Thanks again both of you xx

We had a wonderful day with Kirsten and definitely recommend her! She is warm, thoughtful, flexible and fun! She has a great, comfortable vehicle which she filled with treats for us. She had endless enthusiasm and flexibility and took us on a wonderful mini-highlands tour designed to meet our time constraints and interest. We took a boat tour of Loch Lomond, are a wonderfully relaxing meal at the Village rest in Luss and got all sorts of history along the way. It was a great day we will remember!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much everyone...it was a truly fantastic day for me with you all! I keep telling everyone about our speedboat experience..awesome! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your wee day, i wish I had longer to show you. But further afield....but we can do that when you come back some day. Hugs to you all for being so wonderful! Xx

Excellent tour and guide! This was an experience shared by myself, and my 15 year old grandson. Obviously, there are always concerns about maintaining interest of teenagers, but Eric was very involved and interested - especially at Bannockburn where there is an interactive battlefield. Kirsten is lively and engaging. She is clearly a great lover of her country, and her history, and it shows in her passion for her tour. We always her utmost priority, both in terms of our comfort and our interests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Theresa! I loved my day with you and Eric, it was especially good fun at Bannockburn, fabulous to see you both being so engaged...I loved that. I hope you look back fondly on your experiences...keep in touch! Thanks for leaving awesome feedback xx

She meet all of our needs and more. She was fun and took us places that we wanted to see and more. She did research on the areas that we had requested some of which she wasn't able to find which we weren't surprised because what we wanted to find was before the 1700's. She was on time, very informative and made the trip extremely interesting. I would give her the highest rating possible for all of her effort and time. She made the trip fun. I would refer Kristen to others in a heartbeat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much ladies for taking the time to leave me such awesome feedback! I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you all, especially because of the personal connections you all have to the places we visited...I’m glad that even for a day you got to literally walk in your ancestors footsteps.

Kirsten is an unbelievably great tour guide. She not only helped us set up tee times at St. Andrews she entertain our wives and kept them happy and took them to lunch and toured St. Andrews while the guys played golf. Kirsten was more like a visiting a family member that lived in Scotland than a tour guide. She knew all the great places for the girls shop so the guys didn't have to. She got us out on the 18th fairway of the Old course for photos and didn't get us arrested. Kirsten & James K. are the best

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so so happy to hear you all had a great time, I truly am! It was not a bit of bother helping you arrange the golf etc...as for entertaining the ladies...that was pure fun! Lol. Your group was fabulous. I will share your awesome feedback with James, this means the world to us both; so thank you so much. Please pass on best wishes to all the gang, oh, and tell Lindy I found her kilt bottle wraps...happy to send one to her! Lol I hope we see you again in the future...thanks again Robert xx

We were lucky enough to have Kirsten show us an amazing side of Glasgow, not normally seen on the regular tourist stops. But most importantly her friendly nature and passion for all things Scotland shone through. We would highly recommend Kirsten. Because its not only the beautiful landscape, buildings and history of Scotland, but its about the people you meet. Kirsten made us feel very welcomed. Very comfortable car for sightseeing. We were lucky enough to have William drive us around as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your lovely review Trudy! We had an absolute ball with you guys, it was a pleasure showing you just a wee bit of our beautiful country. I’m so glad everyone enjoyed it. Thanks also for a fabulous lunch, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Safe travels my friends, and give me a shout if you get a chance to come back. Xx

Kirsten did a fantastic job with a difficult assignment (showed us many wonderful sights in Scotland on Boxing Day when everything is closed). Despite the snow we thoroughly enjoyed are tour of Culross, St Monans, St Andrews, and the fabulous Kelpies with other stops along the way. Looking back at pictures, I can't believe how much we packed into that day. She handled all of the difficult driving through snow for us, packed some nice snacks (including Irn Bru), all with some Scottish tales.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dan for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback! I had a fabulous day with you guys, it was great fun! I’m also delighted you enjoyed the ‘Irn Bru’....that means you are now part Scottish! Lol I’m so glad u enjoyed your tour with me...we did see quite a bit now I think about it!

It was truly a fabulous day all around and if there was a rating greater than 5 stars I would happily give it.

We had a great time with Kirsten. She was personable and friendly and on time. She took us out to the countryside where we experienced some spectacular scenery, especially the waterfalls @ Glen Etive. She made sure we saw all that we wanted and spent just the right amount of time at each stop. She also took us to local eateries where we partook of fresh Scottish salmon and had steak pie. Excellent choices! Great trip-we'd hire her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Theo! I had a fab wee day with you guys, and I’m so glad you enjoyed Glencoe & Glen Etive...I only wish I could have influenced the Scottish weather in our favour. Thank you for being such amazing sports, it was a great day! Xx

When we planned our trip to Scotland, we knew we wanted to be in the hands of a capable guide. We were lucky enough to find Kirsten. Despite our jet lag and the colds we caught on the plane from the States, Kirsten made our visit to Scotland unforgettable! We booked 5 days with her. She was solicitous of our less-than-high energy levels and made stops as needed to pick up cold medicine. Overall, Kirsten made this trip everything we had hoped for! We highly recommend her as a guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Caren & Beth....it was fabulous travelling with you both...I’m only sorry you had to deal with not feeling well at the same time...I hope you are both in the mend now! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you...thank you for choosing me as your guide in a scotland. Xx

Kirsten is a fabulous person and very knowledgeable guide. She contacted me the day before my tour to let me know about a festival and large crowds in St Andrews and allowed me to change the tour to another part of Scotland to see the beauty without the crowds. I am so glad of the advanced information and flexibility to change so I was able to have a perfect day in Scotland. She modified one of the tours of the highlands to a shorter day to accommodate my schedule and budget. i will be back for more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Diane! I am so glad you ladies enjoyed your day...we had some beautiful weather and the pictures are amongst some of the best I've ever taken...just gorgeous!

25 years ago, I watched an old movie (Alfred Hitchcock's "39 Steps") and said to myself - "There! - I want to go There someday". "There" was Glencoe. Kirsten J. is a fabulous guide who worked with us in advance to locate a specific location (a barely existing bridge) from the movie. She then strategized on how to add a castle (Doune), a loch (Lomand) and, as a surprise, threw in the Glen Etive film location from "Skyfall". Our custom tour was the highlight of our trip. Wish I could give 10 stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary Kay! I am so so pleased you guys enjoyed your day with me...it was brilliant fun...and I now point out the bridge to everyone I take to Glencoe...and the love it!

Our tour with Kirsten was wonderful. We had such a good time it was like traveling with a friend. She took us to all the beautiful little fishing villages that I had pictured in my mind. It was a fun and very relaxed day. She took us to a Fish and Chips restaurant the food was delicious. The most special thing she did was take pictures of my family and then sent them to me. The whole day was a wonderful experience one we won't soon forget. When we come back we will be sure to book another tour with her.

This was one of the best days spent in Scotland. Time was short for us and Kristen quickly caught on what we wanted to see and how we wanted to see it. We like to see how people live, work and play so visiting the little fishing villages in the area was just what we wanted. After a few min discussion in the morning before we set off Kristen led us on a wonderful day, picked us up on time and got us back on time. Best thing is once you book the tour with her she is just an e-mail or text away.

I can't thank Kirsten enough for a fabulous day touring. We stopped in some fantastic villages that we never would have found on our own and were simply gorgeous and showed off what Scotland has to offer. Kirsten's passion and knowledge about the sites made for an incredible and fun experience. I highly recommend seeing Scotland with Kirsten. You can go at your own pace, learn a lot, and relax while she takes care of all the details. Kirsten will customize to meet your needs and she's lovely to be with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bev, it was my pleasure to spend the day with you and Preston. I enjoyed my time with you so much, and I love that you enjoyed the places I introduced you too. I hope you get a chance to come back some day and explore further...there really is so much to see. Thanks again for the fabulous lunch! Enjoy the rest of the trip, and a safe journey home. Thanks again for being fab! X

Kirsten was delightful. She worked with me to find a tour that fit our needs. She did research and was well prepared. She was also very kind and was always checking in to make sure we were doing well and all of our needs were met. She arranged refreshments in the car and and went above and beyond arranging surprises for the kids. Such a joy to spend the day with, truly a kind soul. Would not hesitate to recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much guys! I had an amazing day with you all...such a beautiful family! The kids were brilliant, 'wee' rays of sunshine. I hope they had a great day also, and I hope your journey home was comfortable. Please get in touch if you guys make it back to Scotland, or if I can help with anything else. Xx

Kirsten is an absolutely spectacular guide! She spoke with a beautiful Scottish accent which lent authenticy to her very knowledgeable information and commentary on the sites she took us to. My husband and I both love Outlander and to be able to actually go to some of the places used in the show was very meaningful to us. Kirsten was considerate of our desire to linger at some of the sites yet she got us back to the ship on time. Plus we had tea and scones at a real local Scottish Tea shop! Wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Barbara! I had a fantastic wee day with you both, and I am so glad you enjoyed it....you’re right...the tea and scones were fabby...thanks again for that wee treat! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you both! Thank you so much for the lovely feedback...much appreciated. Best wishes for 2018 xx

My Mom and I enjoyed the Day Tour to New Lanark and surrounding areas by Kirsten. She definitely knows her history and locations. She picked us up at Edinburgh in the city center and dropped us off to Edinburgh Airport. We stopped at Culross, Dalserf, New Lanark, and Falkirk (the Kelpies). I highly recommend her tours. This was a custom tour, and she communicated all throughout before the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Alex! It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your mum.....and gaining some fabulous photography tips at the same time! I only wish I had longer to show you other places where you would have captured breathtaking pictures. Guess that means you and your mum will need to come and visit me again! �� I am so glad you both enjoyed your day, please say hello to your mum for me. Hope to see you again one day soon! Xx

This tour was amazing!!!! Kirsten picked us up at our hotel and off we went. She came with water and snacks. We left Edinburgh and we headed off to see the countryside. We went to beaches and small towns, places we could of never found on our own. After stopping at several small towns, we eventually were in St. Andrews which was spectacular. The day concluded with a Whiskey Tour. Kirsten did a fabulous job and it was such a pleasure to spend the entire day with her. Will use her again!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lori &Marion! I am so glad you enjoyed your day with me, I had a fabulous wee day, and thoroughly enjoyed your company. I am sooo glad you enjoyed the places that I chose to take you, and I'm delighted that I wa sthe one who got to show them off to you both. Remember, I have so much more to show you - so I guess you will have to come back! Lol Hope I see you again one day not too far from now. Best wishes and have a gorgeous Christmas! Xx

I cannot even put into words how completely amazing Kirsten was as a guide. Before the tour she took so much time to get to know us and find out what we wanted out of our visit. From there she put together an amazing itinerary that made for the most spectacular day. We visited a crazy number of countries on our vacation this year - and Scotland was my favorite. Mostly because of Kirsten and the time she took to really know what we wanted! Thank you Kirsten for the amazing day - and the goodie bag! <3

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aww guys! Thank you sooo much! I had an absolutley fabulous time with you both-- the only downside was the fact we only had one day to squeeze in the best possible experience of Scotland! I so hope you come back soon and we can arrange a longer visit, with many different places included! You guys are absolutely on the friends list and I am so looking forward to meeting up for your next visit! Thanks for the fabulous feedback! Xx

Kirsten went far above and beyond to help us find sites with family connections to us. We had provided a list of some sites we'd hoped to see and she found them and more! Some of the family sites were new to Kirsten and she researched and located them ahead of our tour to maximize our day with her. We would not have been able to find some of these remote sites on our own. Kirsten made it all come to life with her love of the countryside and her genuine desire to make our tour perfect for us. It was!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute with you all. I am so glad I was able to help you to visit sites with personal attachments, that was the best bit! �� It was fantastic being there with you while you got to visit places your ancestors would have lived and worked....I'm still sure they would have been in the castle at some point Marsha! Please keep in touch, I now have 4 lovely new friends! X

Kirsten was a delight. She planned a perfect day of sightseeing in Glasgow that included sites we'd requested and some she recommended to round out our Glasgow experience. She is extremely personable and informative and we can't imagine that we could have had a better tour with any other guide. Her enthusiasm for her city and its history was infectious and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her as our guide.

I still get a rush of excitement showing Scotland off, and to know that you guys felt it is just awesome! If I can help you guys with any other research or anything at all, please just let me know!

Very personable and really wanted us to enjoy the day. Kirsten knew the schedules of every museum we went to and that was most helpful. We really got a lot out of the day. She gave us little gifts that were special, like her favorite Scottish candy and a Scottish calendar for next year. The whole day was enjoyable!
