Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We (4 friends) went to Scotland for 1 week to rest, relax and enjoy. We planned only one activity before we arrived and it was this’s trip. Grant was so easy to work with in building our custom day. Booking and paying from the US was easy.
I even spoke to Gran I’m person to finalize our details and complete the payment.

We ended up having the best time. Grant is so knowledgeable and easy to be with. He stopped in many places for photos, he even turned around so we could see a heard of deer that only his eyes caught the first time by.

Scotland and Edinburgh are beautiful, we fell in love with the place, the vibe, the food and the people. I highly recommend it for a vacation as well as Grant and his service, to be sure you see more then just Edinburgh.

My wife and I were looking for a day trip out of Edinburgh to see the highlands (and visit some distilleries). I found Scotland Day Tours and asked for a quote. Grant was quick to respond and, not only was the rate incredibly reasonable, he was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our interests and suggested two possible itineraries. We ended up picking and choosing from both to create our our day trip and he was more than happy to accommodate us. Grant was a fantastic guide - personable with lots of great stories and information without being overbearing. He made every part of the process easy from booking to pick up/drop off from our hotel. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a tour in the Edinburgh area.

If you are looking for travel in Scotland,Highlands is a must visit. We had the best guide ever, Grant. I think our experience was even more moremorable because of him. Did the Glencoe, fort William and Ben Nevis tour last Sunday. We learned so much history and saw so many places..so perfect.

Did a last minute booking(just 2 days before the tour). No hiccups during booking process. All of the place recommendations made were excellent. Went as per the itenary provided. We didn’t miss anything.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone who is looking to cover few brilliant places in Scotland and also learn a bit of history about each place you visit.

I've always wanted to see the beautiful landscape of the Scottish lochs and highlands and this tour gave me and my family the opportunity to get a sneak peak of places I hope to return one day. Grant is a one many show and an awesome tour guide. He was quick to respond to all correspondence and customized our tour for us. On our tour on July 19 we saw Stirling Castle from a view point at the base of the hill, got to visit and feed highland cattle, drove though and stopped at various viewing points in Glen Coe, saw the red steam train cross the bridge in Glenfinnan, and visited Luss at Loch Lomond on our way back. Grant was kind enough to drop us in Glasgow as we had to catch a flight home from there the next day. If we ever return to Edinburgh and wish to take another day tour, we will hire Grant to do it.

My sister and I and our spouses spent a beautiful 8 days in Scotland, based out of Edinburgh. We all agree that the highlight of our visit was the day we spent with Grant, exploring Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, and Inverary. Grant was prompt and extremely knowledgeable and we all learned so much on this day. We had considered renting a car and doing this trip on our own but for not much more money, having Grant drive and benefiting from his experience and knowledge made this a tremendous value.

It was a trip of a lifetime! Grant was so easy to work with. He replied quickly to every email in my preparation, which calmed my nerves about trustability. He was very knowledgeable about the places we wanted to visit. We had a very specific list of places to visit. While enroute, Grant suggested a few wonderful add ons that really added to our experience. Grant was very approachable and yet very professional. If I had to choose who to trust again, I would definitely choose Grant with Scotland Day Tours. My son and I enjoyed our trip immensely and Grant added to it!!!

We absolutely loved our customized day trip with Grant. He picked us up from our hotel in Edinburgh and drove us up to Kyle Lochalsh. From the very first email Grant was very helpful, friendly and communicative. He suggested a wonderful itinerary and stopped at beautiful places. He even provided a safely seat for our 4-year-old. We had an absolute blast and felt very comfortable along the way. He is a safe driver and a knowledgeable guide. Don't hesitate- book him! We certainly will again!

My daughter and I had planned a trip to Scotland to both tour college options as well as enjoy some sightseeing. I’m so pleased we selected Scotland Day Tours to provide us with our private tours. From the outset, Grant was responsive, professional, easy to deal with and genuinely concerned about our experience. His in-person service once we arrived was no different. Thanks to our airline snafu, we had issues with our arrival and luggage, but Grant remained ever so flexible. During our travels, he shared with us the various areas’ history, and when we were in St Andrews, during our info session with the school, he went out of his way to find us a good spot for lunch as well as get us a map of the town and then give us a walking tour and history lesson.
He is a kind person, very warm, personable, and very client focused. You cannot go wrong with Grant. I highly recommend his services.
