Private Day Tour from Cruise Ship
Sep. 2019
Let me start by saying that if not for a late pickup at the port, this would definitely have rated 5 stars. We were extremely pleased with the tour itself and the driver was an an absolute pleasure. He did, however, arrive about an hour late. He did call to tell us he would be arriving late, so we got back on the cruise ship and had coffee.

The good news, this was a long stop in Edinburgh, so we had time to complete the entire itinerary, and, I believe that, out of guilt, our driver gave us more than we had contracted for, suggesting a couple of extra stops as we returned to the ship. We got back to the ship about a half hour in advance of the all aboard time, so we did not miss anything, nor were we pressed to get back.

Our driver, Brian, was perfect. A Glasgow resident, he was extremely knowledgeable about the local sites and, in fact, had visited many of them on his own. As noted, he recommended a couple of quick stops on the way back to the port that were well worth it. The van was very comfortable for the two of us given 8 hours of driving with frequent stops.

The tour included Blackness Castle, Stirling Castle, Doune Castle (site of Monty Python's Holy Grail, and Winterfell from Game of Thrones), driving through there Trossachs National Park overlooking the Lochs, stopping in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, a coffee break in Aberfoyle, and photo stops at the Kelpies and Linlithgow Palace. A full day by any standard.

Despite the late pickup, I would highly recommend Aura for anyone looking to take a packed day tour while in Edinburgh.

Our drivers are all Scottish Locals and passionate about what they do so we are pleased this came across on the day and gave you a great experience, he is truley sorry for the mistake and will be pleased the day met expectations once underway. We always try and ensure expectations are met and nothing gets missed.

I cannot say enough of this service. I was back in Edinburgh and wanted to do a day tour with a friend and I contacted Aura. I provided an itinerary and they improved on that with suggestions. I was emailed a mapped-out itinerary of the places I wanted to see--which I really loved--along with our drivers name and License number and when & where to expect him. I was impressed with their Professionalism.

On the day of the tour Our friendly driver William was on time. He proved to have local knowledge and a good rapport. Our transport was clean with bottled waters. I simply cannot say enough of this service and would gladly use it again. Thank You Aura --- you are the best!! Thanks!
