What people are saying about Kilmahog

Our guide David made this trip the most unforgettable experience ever, with his knowledge, wit, and genuine desire to give us all the best day possible. Welcoming everyone by naming their country made it all so personal and friendly. The day flew past, seeing the Scottish mountains, countryside and lochs as we listened to stories told with passion, enthusiasm and a lot of laughs. Not only hearing about Scottish history and legend, but touching stories about the Queen and her recent death brought a respectful and touching element to it all. To us David, you were the King for the day and it was obvious at the end of the tour, especially when those ladies were singing “Auld lang syne” in Spanish, how much everyone appreciated everything you had done for us. To anyone considering taking this tour, it comes very highly recommended, especially if you are as lucky as we were in having David as the guide.

5 stars . Great way to see the English country side. We had a rental car but decided to take the bus instead. It was so worth the extra cost. The tour guide was amazing. He spoke so eloquently. We enjoyed every word during our 12 hrs trip .
