We have been talking to all who will listen about just how great our vacation was, thanks to 'Best Scottish Tours'. Our son, Jeff, wants us to do a return trip to visit St. Andrews to play some golf! It was a wonderful family trip, one we all will remember for a long time to come. Thank you for your patience and for being so polite in handling all the details of our trip. ”
