Marie, We had a great trip and the accommodations your arranged were first class. The detailed map you provided led us to some lovely locations. Many that we didn't know existed. Scotland is more beautiful than we imagined. We especially enjoyed meeting you and Blair. Thanks you for planning such a wonderful trip.

Hello Marie, Just completed a book from our trip last June and wanted to offer a few comments on the trip. ( I use a company called Blurb which is just the best). 12 days was just perfect. We wanted to see castles and gardens and we\\\'re not disappointed! We were delighted with the booking at Baldercine castle in Oban; Liz and ronnie were the best innkeepers. Highly recommend the day trip to Mull and Iona and a day in Glencoe. next stop Nairn and the Boath House. Fabulous hotel and the restaurant worthy of their Michlin star. Last stop Banchory and the castle trail. Made a mistake with the type of car rental and would recommend as small a car As possible. Driving was not difficult and limited traffic, maybe because it was early June. We did a day trip to Skye from Nairn , But should have planned 2 nights there . No regrets , it was a fabulous trip. Many thanks for your assistance again. Noticed comments from Tom and Natasha, whom we met in Oban and Nairn. Delightful travelers from the US. Looking forward to working with you again for another visit to France. Best regards Abbe & Ed

Thanks, Marie, for organising a very interesting and beautiful tour of Scotland for us. We had a very good time and you did an excellent job. Our accommodation was varied regarding luxury and space (it was planned this way), but we were always received and taken care of in a very friendly and welcoming manner. We loved all the places we stayed at for different reasons and we liked the variety (a castle, manor houses, B&Bs etc.). The advice and tips of our hosts as well as your own were useful and made the trip more rewarding.

Hi Marie and Elspeth -This is a very tardy reply but wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to Scotland!! Your help was much appreciated from our lovely driver to the wonderful B&Bs we stayed in. The map was very helpful as we heard about the landslide on the radio and took the diversion, made the return to Glasgow a little longer but saw some wonderful scenery. I'm afraid my daughter who is studying in Glasgow wants to stay and not come home, I can understand why. A lovely country and lovely people. Will certainly use your services again and rec. you to anyone planning a visit. Jackie Sweeney and John White

Hi Marie, Thanks again for a great trip! We enjoyed all of the lodging, and we found your city and tour write-ups to be invaluable. We do have some thoughts that future clients may find useful/interesting. Of course, some of these are based on our 14-night trip. 1. The number of tourists on the roads and at historic sites was minimal during our trip from 6/4-6/18, which we learned was because most of the UK schools were still in session. By going to Scotland in early June, we beat the peak of the tourist season (both from the UK and other countries). We would definitely recommend this time of the year for visiting Scotland, especially if driving is involved. 2. We think it is a good idea to spend more than one night in a location. There is a lot to see, and spending just one night in a location doesn't give much time. Having a whole day that is free to explore is useful. 3. We found that studying the UK roads sign material that you provided before our trip was VERY useful. Many of the UK road signs are quite different than in the U.S, so it would good to be somewhat familiar with them before driving in the UK. 4. Roaming charges from U.S. cell carriers are outrageous, so we bought a cheap cell phone (Vodafone) with pre-paid minutes when we got to Scotland. This worked out great, but reloading the phone with new minutes proved difficult. To do so, you had to go to a Vodafone store, which aren't located in many rural parts of Scotland. One could also go online and buy minutes, but Vodafone (and the other UK carriers as well) do NOT accept U.S. credit cards (credit cards with US billing addresses). So, the lesson is to buy a bunch of minutes when you can so you don't run out when/if you're in rural parts of the country. 5. Book your trip with Scotland Made Easy!!!! Thanks again! Regards, Tom and Natasha

Hi Marie and Elspeth - All of our B& Bs in Ireland were excellent. Great meals, charming hosts and very helpful and accommodating including a ride to the airport at the last place we stayed. I believe we all thought some of these witty wonderful women would easily be someone we would love to have as friends and neighbors. Ballina was great. We arrived the day they lost the match to Dublin. Met so many interesting Irish folks at the pubs that night. Did a bit of dancing. Great job altogether. Thank you. Sincerely Herm and Sue. USA

Marie - first of all let us again thank you for the wonder arraignments you made for our trip to Scotland a couple of years ago. It was truly a trip of life time. We are planning on traveling again to Europe in the fall of 2014 (Sept). Lorraine and I, wish to spend 5 days in Paris, and then take the train to Rome for 5 days of tourism. I not sure if you can again work your magic, but any help and or advice would be greatly appreciated. Bob & Lorraine

Marie: Lucia and I were extremely impressed with your company's service. From the moment that we checked into our hotel (where we were upgraded to a Master Suite) in Edinburgh to the remarkable location and hospitality in our B&B in the centre of St. Andrews, we knew that we had made the right decision to retain your services. You obviously have a grasp on the best places to stay. The weather was typical Scotland but the inns were anything but typical. Your choices helped make it a very special week in Scotland. Thanks, Don and Lucia
