What people are saying about Aberdeen

This tour was a definitive highlight of my stay in Aberdeen! Jacqueline was so knowledgeable and friendly and helped me get a more 'real' taste of Aberdeenshire. The small group was intimate and a nice change from the large day tour groups I've joined before. Plus she gave great tips for other things to do and see for the rest of my stay and pointed me in the right direction for a truly local dinner experience you wouldn't find yourself. I'd definitely consider her other tours when I eventually make my way back to Aberdeen!

Duff House is a grand stately home full of wonderful paintings and ornate ceilings. Really impressive. Afterwards we went to Pennan, a little community of whitewashed houses with gigantic cliffs rising behind them. Then on to Fraserburgh to a nearby lighthouse and I spent 45 minutes looking round the excellent lighthouse museum. As on the previous trip to Balmoral, Braemar and the Cairngorms, the tour guide Jacqueline was most attentive and informative, enriching my knowledge of the area.

The tour was super nice. Our guide was really great. Took a lot of time and paid close attention to the little things. Local specialties were served in between. The additional whiskey tour was conducted by the distillery itself and was very informative and well done. Thank you for the great day.

The tour was amazing! Jacqueline was very kind and courteous and knowledgeable of the attractions. She patiently answered all of our questions. We would highly recommend this tour experience.

Loved spending the day with Jacqueline. Great stops and a wonderful lunch location. Very knowledgeable and well organized. Highly recommended!!!
