"As for our drivers- Nicky Sanderson, in Scotland, was superb! We can't say enough good things about her!! She was our driver + our tour guide. She loved history, and so did Steve(my husband). It was not biased or negative, just plain wonderful every day. The Audi car was large and comfortable too! Nicky was able to listen to our desires and change the schedule- if needed. Nicky would score a 10 out of 10."
US CLIENTS JUNE 2014
"Thank you so much for the WONDERFUL experience you provided Gary & Cathey. I just don't know the words to tell you how appreciative I am of your professional attention to detail to make sure Cathey & Gary had the most EXTRAODINARY Scottish experience, as well as the friendship you extended to them on their trip.. They have raved and raved about you, your knowledge and how flexible you were with their itinerary.......... They have both said, it couldn't have been more perfect. When I've heard them tell about their trip to Scotland, YOU are the key figure in their recounting and what made it so special. It's Nicky this and Nicky that about your knowledge, how you brought Scottish history alive, both past and present, (understand you are an Outlander fan!!!) and how friendly you were. In their words, you were a perfect match for them. "
US TOUR OPERATOR OCTOBER 2014
"We had a wonderful time traveling with you and have been telling my son and husband all of our experiences. Please feel free to use me as a reference if anyone who is thinking of using your services wants to touch base. I would be delighted to tell them how much we enjoyed being with you."
US CLIENTS JUNE 2014
"[My clients] were enchanted with Nicky, in awe of her knowledge, and how she brought Scottish history to life. Plus, they just plain enjoyed being with her."
US TOUR OPERATOR AUGUST 2014
"[MY CLIENT] raves about Nicki, Scotland, food, people they met in the pubs in the evening... as does [her husband], in a much more subtle masculine way. Nicki is ALWAYS at the center of the conversation and how well she took care of them; her ability to be so flexible with their schedule, to ALWAYS have something in mind as an alternative. The food was wonderful at each of their stops and along the way. [MY CLIENT] went into detail about the ferry food, with chilled duck and such on the menu.... not the typical hot dog, & 3 day old sandwich, which would've been the choices on a ferry in Washington State."
