A Quote from the Scottish Bard Robert Burns: “ O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us, to see oursels as others see us”

“I have been raving to all the “powers that be” here in New York City about you and your excellent work with us. Your ears have probably been ringing over all the praise. We enjoyed every minute with you – and can’t thank you enough for all your many kindnesses. You played a large role in our Scotland adventure”.
Brenda Fine, writer and Burt Fine, photographer, New York.


“My Driver Guide, Mike Hardie, was a real treat. He is knowledgeable – about Scottish history as well as knowing his way around, Mike was able to show me points of interest I hadn’t even considered. He is informative and courteous, a terrific ambassador for Scotland. I couldn’t have had a better guide, a real pleasure”.

"We could not have asked for anything more. Scott (aged 5) was quite taken with you and behaved better than we could have imagined. He learned so much, and his little mind is still churning all the things he saw and did. He has dragged me to the library to get out all the books on castles. He has had me on the internet printing out pictures of the castles we visited”.
Sheena Sim, Oakville, Ontario.
