Toby was outstanding and went above any tour guide. Family of 5 from USA with 18, 15 & 7 year old daughters. Our little girl was crying with bad ear pain. With Scotland's socialized medicine we didn't not know what to do but with Toby's help we were able to get her taken care of and the rest of the day was AMAZING. We visited Stirling, Linlithgow, and Blackness. Such beautiful sights and he even went in with us and was our personal guide inside the castles. The day was catered to our needs BEST DAY EVER!
