Amazing tour My and my familly went to Scotland in August and went to a tour with Elizabeth around the Aberdeen area. It was so fantastic to be with her and see all the amazing places we went to see with her. She’s a very special lady and she no so much about the area. This tour was everything we wanted. Thanks Elizabeth to making everything perfect for us. We hope to seeing you soon,you are amazing.

Amazing tour Elizabeth is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area, her tour was the best i've ever been on and i would recommend to anyone to definitely try it out. We basically made an itinerary of what we wanted to see and she was happy to accommodate. 10 out of 10 I'd come back just for the tour alone.

Best tour guide in Scotland It was our first time to Scotland and Elizabeth made our trip the most memorable trip, ever!! She ensured that we saw the best castles, ate the most delicious food and enjoyed the amazing sights! Elizabeth added last minute stops to make sure Rachel saw Highland Cows and that we all made it to Mass on time! We originally booked two days , but were so pleased that we booked her for a third day! If you want to make memories in Scotland, than Elizabeth is your person!! We invited her to Texas for a visit , but it might be too hot in Houston for her!

Thank you Elizabeth! Great tour!!! Elizabeth is the BEST!!! We started the day with an amazing distillery tour and tasting at Strathisla and then off to through the beautiful countryside to Speyside Cooperage. Next to a fun lunch spot, The Mash Ton and then to Walkers Shortbread shop, an extra stop…Thank you Elizabeth! We ended with a tour of Huntly Castle, a stone circle and a special trek to see some Highland cows. Such a great day! Can’t wait to see what our tour with Elizabeth brings on our second day of our tour tomorrow!!

Best guide ever! Elisabeth es una gran guía y mejor persona, pendiente de nosotros en todo momento. Te hace sentir totalmente como alguien de la gamilia. Estuvimos 2 días recorriendo pueblos, castillos y playas. Fue un tour maravillosamente pensado y personalizado donde disfrutamos muchisimo tanto los adultos como los niños. También nos llevó a comer a restaurantes con magníficos platos locales, gran repostería casera y buenísimo té.

A perfect day in Aberdeen Elizabeth is a wonderful tour guide…she has so much knowledge about the places she takes people and is also funny and kind. We told her our preferences and she planned the perfect day exploring Aberdeen! I am so glad we discovered her services and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.

A great tour with a great guide What a fantastic tour with Elizabeth! My son and I visited several historical locations on a lovely warm day. Not only were we provided information about these locations, but also very useful information about Aberdeen and the surrounding area. I intend to book another tour with Elizabeth in the future. Money well spent.

A great day around Aberdeen I had one full day in Aberdeen and going on a tour with Elizabeth was a great way to spend it. We went to a beach, a stone circle, castle ruins, and even saw a puffin. Elizabeth has a lot of interesting local knowledge and took us to a great spot for lunch. I’d highly recommend Aberdeenshire Tours.

Customized Daytrip We had a great day with Elizabeth. She customized our tour with castles and gardens, which were exactly what I was hoping for to surprise my mother for her birthday. We got interesting facts about the places and nice recommendations. We went to places off the beaten paths and to the touristy places before the tour busses arrived. I can highly recommend doing a tour with her, especially if you want to do something more individual.
