He was so knowledgeable, kind, entertaining and talented ( legit - this guy can sing, dance, even played the accordion for us!!! ). We went on another tour in another country after this one, and just kept musing to ourselves about how we missed Scot. He had a beautiful story for everything we passed. A ..."

    I have travelled most of europe, new zealand and south east asia on and off for the last 12 years and been on many guided tours. Caitlin is hands down the most amazing guide I have ever come across. She is a passionate Scot,and knowledgable guide and a wonderful person. Could not recommend this tour and in particular, Caitlin as a guide.

    Was great to get to go to places we wouldn’t have been able to reach otherwise, especially while being too young to hire a car

    The Highland Fling tour was incredible! I was so nervous as it was my first time travelling on my own but Jemma and the entire tour group made me feel so welcome that those nerves disapated within the first 3 hours. Jemma was extremely knowledgeable, funny, a born story teller and just an all around amazing person and tour guide. I think everyone from our group would agree that her historical stories and folk tales made the trip. I have fallen in love with the Highlands and it’s rich history and I can’t wait to come back some day. This was the best tour group I could have every hoped for and I’m not sure if any other tour will top it for me. Will absolutely recommend Haggis and Jemma to friends and family who travel to Scotland!!

Cheers, Steph

    Poor Michael! He confessed to us on the last night that this was his first tour on his own and that he had been pretty nervous. It did not help that me (Hannah) and one other girl on the tour had studied History and were sat right behind him. On Day 2 the bus broke down as well - trial by fire, indeed! Michael handled it all like a champ though and I had a ton of fun. If you want to explore the Highlands properly, this is the tour for you. Beautiful landscapes, fairie stories, hairy coos (not enough, Michael! Still waiting on hairy coo babies!) and a really great group. Michael got saddled with nine girls, but thankfully they were all lovely and we actually ended up spending pretty much every day together and even went out on daytrips and for brunch etc. after the tour ended in Edinburgh. Thank you for a great week - we have learnt how to properly cuss in Scottish; that "light walk" does not mean the same to everyone; whiskey does help in pouring rain; planting trees can be hard work; that pub quiz nights can involve doing the chicken dance on tables and laughing at pick up lines and that stripping the willow is a lot of fun, but perhaps not advisable when drunk. Also, if you ever need to hide a body, apparently Loch Ness is where you want to go. Life skills! We'd do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you to everyone on the tour for making it so much fun, for being considerate and kind and funny and thanks Michael for showing us why Scotland should be everyone's favourite.

    Simply Outstanding. Notwithstanding, the sentimental reason for our trip Scot Wilson became an instant kindred spirit. He read our circumstances and our love for family and our Scottish ancestors with the accuracy of a patriot. We loved him and he loved us back with Scottish pride and encyclopaedic details of his beloved country. We couldn’t have been more pleased. God bless Scot and our ancestral Scotland. Sandy and Bryan Shields May 14 the Highland Fling.

    Hi Bryan, Thank you for leaving such a great review of your Highland Fling tour with Scot. Your photos definitely sum up the tour (inc. the hairy coos!) We wish you all the best for your ancestral journey. Kind regards, Annabelle

    What we would liked most was Caitlin! She was delightful, informative, passionate, kind, funny, and very well prepared. We especially appreciated how she included our two granddaughters in her presentations and reenactments. She helped make the tour more enjoyable for them and they loved her. Thank you, Caitlin!
