The accommodations were great and the food delicious!! Our guide ,Gordon, was very good, being a Scotsman himself.

He certainly knew his country.

The guiding was comprehensive, informative and flexible.

We learnt a lot about the ecology, history and people of Scotland.

The bus was comfortable and clean.

We really enjoyed all the different styles of hotels we stayed in and the food service was amazing.

Thank you for the extra evening meal which we enjoyed at Duisdale House Hotel.

My interests lie with flora and fauna along with history and old architecture.

I was suitably impressed with everything we stopped to see.

The only slightly down point of the journey, which relates to personal preferences, was the lunch stop at the Waterside Seafood Restaurant.

Yes it was supposed to be a taste experience and it was, but the meal needed to include more food without a smoked flavour.

I think this would have enabled a better appreciation of the smoked flavours.

The one thing that I felt was missing was a balance to the history, ecology and amazing food and accommodation - a arts/musical experience.

Could you please consider including a music and dance experience (as in try it out) in the future? We were very,very satisfied with out trip.

The places we visited were all "must sees" when you think of Scotland.

St Andrews was great for golf lovers and Inverness was interesting as a larger city.

There was so much history to become immersed in -some relating to current TV shows! My favourite places were the Isles of Skye and Mull with their pretty towns and stark countryside.

We saw breathtaking views with very few tourists around because early in season.

Tom Mcgiver was very knowledgeable about the history which was of interest to us.

He was very humorous.

But may need to work on his jokes😂😂 Only 5 people on the tour so was very easy to know everyone and all blended well.

Thoroughly recommend these tours less....

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

"Don't be afraid to get amongst it! India is so fun and energetic. There's always a lot going on - which can be overwhelming. But if you're open to it, it can be a really cool experience. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Northern India

"Finding hidden little gems, like the Bahubali Hills in Udaipur. An insider's guide is the best help when it comes to unique experiences and (most importantly) yummy food!"

Must pack items for Northern India

"A local (or international) SIM card. As the most populated country on the planet, India is BUSY. It can be confusing to get around, so having access to maps whenever you need them is a godsend. "

"There are many tour guides at each temple waiting to give you a tour on a tuk-tuk. You can explore by yourself too. Rent a bicycle to get around easily. I'd recommend a motorbike, it's faster!"

Must pack items for Angkor Wat

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

@tiffanyswindow's Top Tips

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
