We had Morag as our tour guide and she was very knowledgable, and friendly. Her stories about the history of the sites we saw were interesting and always had a comical side. We had all been to St Andrew's in the past but didn't really know what we were looking at, Morag really helped to identify all the sites! We enjoyed this very much and would certainly recommend it!

I enjoyed learning about the history of St Andrews. I just loved the sandstone buildings. Cordelia had the facts and info at the tip of her fingers. The other persons who had booked did not pitch for the tour so she and I interacted very comfortably. I will treasure my experience and highly recommend other visitors to take the tour.
