We wanted to thank you again for planning the best trip we could have imagined! I'm so glad you strongly suggested eliminating a few destinations so as not to be on a "whistle stop" tour. It was high energy, non the less & worth it all. We especially enjoyed Skye and staying at the Dunvegan Hotel. Alison & Diane made it more like visiting friends than staying at a hotel. Earls Court house in Killarney turned out to be a good choice. Of course, my husband's favourite stop was St. Andrews. And all breakfasts were delicious & filling. We want to compliment you for your organization.
Well, we are home again, but honestly, we would still rather be in Scotland! We, all three, quickly learned to love Scotland, and we were not yet ready to leave. This has been the most thoroughly enjoyable trip we have ever taken! Our route was perfect for our purposes and we could have stayed a few more days in each place. There was such a diversity of beautiful scenery and amazing sites. We learned so much more about history and our heritage. We can't complement the people of Scotland enough! We were always received with friendship and courtesy and everyone was so helpful. Everyone was always happy and laughing. They have a pride in their country that is well-deserved. Our genealogy research was very successful thanks to all the help we received! It was so exciting to stand in the home of Mike's (five great) grandmother! Amazing! Alex, thank you so much for planning our wonderful trip. We are still glowing with warm memories.
We had a fantastic 10 days touring Scotland with Alex and Silver Skye. Our family, a group of nine (one of whom is in a wheelchair) met Alex at the airport, and so began a delightful journey touring an assortment of distilleries and castles throughout Scotland. Alex communicated with us and secured wonderful accommodations throughout Scotland that not only met our wishes, but also the accessibility needs of our daughter. The route he proposed worked perfectly with our wish-list of whisky, countryside and castles (Alex arranged a visit for us to the private Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Edinburgh - amazing!) The Mercedes-Benz vans we traveled in were extremely comfortable and spacious, and made the back roads of Scotland all the more enjoyable.
Working with Alex and Silver Skye was fantastic. His knowledge of Scotland, its history and its highways, enhanced our trip tremendously. His staff are fantastic; we left the fine details to them and were never disappointed. It was the best family trip we have taken, and we left feeling as though we had new friends in Scotland. We highly recommend Alex and Silver Skye, and will definitely book with them on our next trip to beautiful Scotland!
