Self-drive Itinerary - Stephen, USA

"I returned (sadly) to Los Angeles yesterday, and I just wanted to thank you very much for arranging such a wonderful trip for me. I had a great time in your beautiful country: the people, the scenery, the food and the whisky! The hotels were all fabulous.

Thanks once again for such a lovely trip, and if you ever need a reference I'd be glad to provide one. When I return to Scotland I will let you know!"

Tailor-made trip to the Islands of Mull and Iona - Joyce, UK

"I am writing to thank you for the excellent programme and plans you made for our holiday in Mull. The hotels were so well chosen, and each one received us courteously and kindly, whether after a long day's travelling, or in pouring rain. They were exactly what we wanted and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in each one. We deeply appreciated all your careful and detailed preparation for our holiday. It was so reassuring to know that we could rely absolutely on your careful listing of every detail."

Honeymoon in Scotland - Suzanne, USA

"Everything in Scotland went so smoothly and all the accommodations were great. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much for all your help and patience. Take care and hopefully we can work with you again the next time we visit Scotland."

Self-drive Itinerary - Jayne, USA

"I want you to know that I have recommended your company to other friends, and will continue to do so. Thanks again for your promptness, professionalism, and attention to detail."

Personal Guided Tour - Judith, USA

"The entire trip was beyond our wildest dreams. Craig is a very personable, extremely knowledgeable guide to Scotland. This was our second trip to Scotland and we have seen a great deal of the country. Craig took us to places we couldn't see on a group tour or even drive to ourselves. Our experience was fantastic. All of the B&Bs were delightful - the hosts were friendly; the rooms were very nice, and the food was good.

I would highly recommend Absolute Escapes to anyone planning a trip to Scotland. You are all fantastic representatives of the homeland of my heart. I very much hope to do business with you all in the future. Thanks again."

Self-drive Itinerary - Astrid, Germany

"We had just a wonderful time. Everything was so well planned from the package we got before to our accommodations. We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely come back some day. I just can repeat that we are more than pleased with all you have arranged, so for further trips we will surely contact you again."

Personal Guided Tour - James, USA

"A fantastic trip, would recommend your agency to anyone, anytime. Your selection of B&Bs, based on our cost guidelines, was exceptional. What can I say about Craig? I know he is independent of your company, but how fortunate you are to be affiliated with him. He is a rare gem.

I‘m sure that I need not point out the beauty of Scotland to you, but this is a trip we will never forget. My wife and I were ready to become "incomers" in one of the small villages on the coast road to St. Andrews."

West Highland Way and Tailor-made Trip - Hayo, Germany

"We had a super organized and very pleasant holiday. Thank you for your support on it. A very, very gorgeous long distance trip with fine views and perfect arrangements.
Thanks a lot for your help!!! We definitely had a perfect holiday. We will forward our experience and offer our recommendation on you."

Tailor-made trip to Islay and the West Coast - Wendy, UK

"We just want to say a big thank you for all of the arrangements you made for our recent break to Scotland..
All of the arrangements were perfect, the accommodation was excellent and all of the people we met extremely friendly. We look forward to dealing with you again. Thanks again.

Personal Guided Tour - Barry and Pat, USA

"We had an absolutely wonderful Scotland trip! The accommodations were excellent and we especially loved our "room with a view" at Lodge on the Loch. We enjoyed our travels with Craig. His knowledge of Scottish history and ability to present it in an interesting manner certainly made the country "come alive" for us. As you suggested, he was flexible with our schedule and took us to several sites we would not have seen with a large touring group.

Thank you for helping us with our wonderful trip to Scotland....It was everything we had hoped for AND MORE!"

Self-drive Itinerary, Neil and Catherine, Canada

"I know this thank you is a little past due, but a very big thank you. The trip was awesome and everything went great. I think it rained for a total of 30mins all week and we got to see everything and more. A return trip is a must somewhere down the road. You will definitely be recommended!
Thanks again"

Self-drive Itinerary - Amy, USA

"I wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for your help with planning our trip to your beautiful country. We had a wonderful time. The detailed itinerary you prepared for us was the key! Your directions were very good and the timing of things worked out very well. Thank you very much for all your help."

Self-drive Itinerary - Marek, Israel

"I am writing to thank you for the first rate planning you did for our tour of Scotland. We very much enjoyed the route and the lodgings you picked for us. We are definitely going to recommend your services to our friends."

Tailor-made Honeymoon - Dimitra, UK

"We had a lovely honeymoon in Scotland! Thank you so much for designing such a lovely trip for us and booking such nice places to stay!

The scenery was stunning and the routes you suggested helped us make the most of it! In terms of accommodation we were very pleased with all the B&Bs and guest houses chosen for us - especially with our rooms in Edinburgh, the Old Inn in Gairloch and Dunmor House in Callander.
Thanks again for everything!"

Self-drive Itinerary - Mike, USA

"The trip to Scotland was wonderful. The scenery was amazing. The golf course was great. The history and castles were something to see. Your directions and the extra things you did for us in our vacation packet were really great. I would be more than helpful to act as a reference for you at anytime. If we ever come back you will be the first person I reach out to. Thanks again."

Self-drive Itinerary - Scott, USA

"We had a fantastic time in Scotland! Your arrangements and accommodations were superb!
Each Guest House was comfortable, friendly, and unique. The hosts were uniformly helpful and produced great breakfasts. Perhaps our favourite was Greenacres in Portree. The first night we were there, there was a fire outside the city and a power outage at about 6pm. Of course most of the town restaurants were then closed due to the lack of power. We found a store still open and purchased some wine, cheese, and crackers and returned to the back patio at Greenacres where we ate "dinner" and watched the birds and boats in the Harbour. It was lovely!!

All in all it was a great trip and we thank you for your efforts and recommendations. We'll probably return someday and we will contact you then for a second trip."

Self-drive Itinerary - Jerry, USA

"I just returned from the trip you organized for my brother and me. It was fantastic. All the places you had for us to stay were ready and expecting us. We were treated very well. I am very happy that I got to see so much of your country - it was a great adventure.
THANK YOU for a wonderful experience, a dream come true."

Self-drive Itinerary - Ana, Brazil

"We had a lovely time in Scotland and your arrangements were impeccable. If I ever come back to Scotland, I'll sure contact you. I've already recommended your services to some friends, who want to go fishing there next year. We'll keep in touch. Thanks again"
