We found Gordon to be well understood, local to area with a good solid information base. He was flexible and willing to do what we wanted at our pace and he had good suggestions that we were able to incorporate into the day. Would definitely have him as a guide again well worth the day touring with Gordon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Daniel for kind comments glad you enjoyed the day Looking forward to seeing you all again Gordon

Great day spent with Gordon. Met us dockside and we were on our way. We had communicated earlier about what sites we were interested in, and those we were not. Gordon customized the entire day and met every venue request. Personable and thoroughly enjoyed his company. Highly recommend.

We throughly enjoyed our tour led by Gordon. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and amusing. He was very willing to tweak the tour so that we got to see everything we requested. Also, he made additional suggestions and little detours to see other sights he thought we might like - and we did! I highly recommend Gordon as a tour guide and driver.

We had a fantastic day exploring Isle of Skye with Gordon as first-time visitors. Knowing our group of four was photography-focused, Gordon went out of his way to show us the scenic vistas and make impromptu photo stops along the way. When visiting sites that offered hiking opportunities, Gordon gave us options to maximize our experience and comfort. He was very knowledgeable about the local history and culture, and enthusiastic about all that Isle of Skye has to offer. Gordon was just a top-notch guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for kind comments glad you all enjoyed the tour and trust you all got some great photos. Enjoy the remainder of your cruise Haste ye back Slainte

Gordon is a excellent guide. He is not only knowledgeable of his homeland but goes above and beyond to meet your every request. We had a fantastic time. Our trip was limited but we still experienced the some wonderful highlights of Scotland. Edinburg castle and whisky experience was incredible. The drive to Fort William is breathtaking of the three sisters of Glencoe and so much more.

Gordon was an amazing guide for our whisky tour of Speyside in December 2022. He was courteous and professional and extremely knowledgeable about the distilleries and their practices.

Gordon is a top notch guide and I highly recommend him.

I can't say more good things about Gordon and the special yet affordable. private tour he planned for my husband and I. He is a gentleman, full of knowledge, funny, accomodating, and does everything he can to make your trip the best it can be. He really cares about your experience and went far above and beyond for us. His van was so comfy as well! I have never felt happier and he has my highest recommendations. Please book your trip with him. Seriously, thank you, Gordon. It was an amazing day for us.

Anita ZagerUnited States
Gordon was a knowledgeable and resourceful guide under challenging weather conditions. It is absolutely true you just need to wait a bit and Scottish weather will likely change. We were prepared for inclement weather but one of us injured a knee a few days earlier and so mobility was restricted. Gordon thoughtfully took all this into his planning so we saw this things we wanted to see and he added two suggested stops to Dunvegan Castle and the Staffin Dinosaur Museum. A most memorable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Anita for kind comments glad you both enjoyed the day. The weather did improve as the day went on. Almost all 4 seasons in a day. Haste ye back Slainte
Michelle RosenUnited States
Gordon was a first rate tour guide. Great personality, always anticipated when we needed dinner reservations, made sure attractions were opened, incorporated some sights we didn't know about in our schedule, and was extremely organized. He gave us a lot of history and if he didn't know something he would research and get back with us the next day . He was always on time, even when we made him start our day at 7am. We highly recommend him.

Gordon was great! He was easy to communicate with before the day of the tour, via email, and we had a wonderful day with him. He gave us a custom tour of the places we asked to see, and they were all quite interesting. He even asked if we'd seen the Highland cows and took us to see them! He took us to a great small local place for lunch and used our time wisely, but we never felt rushed. Highly recommend him! Thank you, Gordon!

Gordon was able to modify our itinerary based on the 'rainy' weather and my brief disability (hurt foot on a cane). In spite of the weather, we had a great day with stops at the Staffin dinosaur museum, Skye Museum of Island Life, tea at Uig Lodge, a whiskey tasting, quick stop for shopping, lunch at Sligachan brew pub, and fabulous views from the top of the Quiraing and more! I can highly recommend this tour.

Gordon was an outstanding guide! He showed us so much and was very flexible. He did a super job accommodating my 82 year old mother! He selected great sites that were accessible for her but still allowed her to feel like she had a short Highland hike. I highly recommend Gordon D. Thanks so much for making our bucket list dream come true!!!

We did a fabulous tour of Eilean Donan castle followed by a tour of Skye. Gordon was very knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. A few places we had hoped to visit were closed but we found other interesting things to see. This was our second day touring with Gordon. We all highly recommend him and plan to pass his details on to others for their visit to Scotland.

Calum treated us to a very personal experience on the way from Inverness to Isle of Skye and back. He is a very knowledgeable person about the history of the area and is a pleasure to spend the day with. Calum arranged a very flexible day and balanced off things he thought we should see vs things we wanted to do. We had a very memorable day and won't soon forget our experience!

Our tour guide Gordon was outstanding. He was both informative & FUN!!! We gave him our list of destinations & with his knowledge of Skye he was able to add several special "local only" spots along the way. He made sure we stopped to see the coos, stretched our legs to visit a rambling river, made sure we saw the fairy bridge, took us to a bakery/coffee shop that looked like a fairy village (delicious pastry), & when he found out we wanted scallops, he arranged for a table at a local seafood place!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for kind comments was great to meet you all, glad you had a great day on Skye & were able to share local beauty and food spots Safe travels Haste ye back Slainte
Elizabeth MayerUnited States
My husband & I (late 20s) did a custom tour with Gordon that included: Rogie Falls, Beauly Abbey, Loch Ness with Urquhart Castle, Culloden, and Clava Cairns. Gordon did a great job of providing so much information, history, and narration during the drive. He accompanied us to most of the activities but also gave us space to explore on our own, which we appreciated. He arranged us lunch at a local B&B that was delicious! This tour was the highlight of our trip in the British Isles, highly recommend!

Ken CookUnited States
After dialog via email with Gordon, we set up a focused tour: I wanted to see the four sites of former locations of the Cathedrals of Moray, and then to visit distilleries. Gordon met me at the train station at Elgin, we spent time at each site, plus 2 additional locations. Lunch at The Mash Tun was superb, and then we visited two distilleries before he dropped me at the depot for my ride back to Inverness. Interesting conversation, great exploring Speyside, loved having a driver who knew the land.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for kind comments and glad you enjoyed the tour and sites visits along with the distilleries. Was great to meet you Haste ye back Slainte

I had an excellent experience with Gordon for my 1 day whisky distillery tour. With his expertise and time management skills, I was able to visit 1 distillery with tour and tasting, 3 distilleries with tasting only and the Speyside Cooperage tour. He was a wealth of information throughout the tour and I would highly recommend him.
