        Rose Brown made our trip wonderful. For the entire coach tour from October 12, 2019 through October 24, 2019, Rose was upbeat, personable and always made herself available. She took the time to get to know each of us personally and shared some fun... Show more

        Highly recommend. First time to Scotland, and saw a good portion of this beautiful country. Wish we had more time on Isle of Skye... but realize that 7 days just not long enough to do/see all we wanted. Great guide and coach driver, and terrific weather... Show more
