What our customers say...

Dear James, It was great to meet you and have you show us around Scotland. This tour is one of the best we have had and that is due to your knowledge, organisation and general kindness. We couldn’t have asked for a better itinerary, it was exactly what we wanted with just the right mix of sights from the ‘exciting’ Loch Ness to the tranquil beauty of the Western Highlands. Your skill in recounting the old stories and bringing them to life is amazing and made it really interesting for us. This trip had everything we look for in a vacation and I will recommend Scotland and a tour with you to my colleagues, friends and family.

We have been working with James Campbell Tours since 2005 and one of my first experiences of Edinburgh was provided by James when he took me on a tour of the city as part of my training. His energy, humour and knowledge made a huge impression on me, which goes a long way to explain why, not just myself, but countless other visitors request his services time and again.

Dear James, My VIP clients returned from their trip with you and raved about how professional, kind and what excellent service you provided. Most importantly, they wanted to find certain information about family and you were well prepared with the perfect itinerary so that you could show them exactly what they had requested. It took much research on your behalf before my clients arrived in Scotland for you to have every day planned just right so they could enjoy their time and learn. Also, the wonderful part about working with you is that you are flexible to the clients request if they choose to make a change in the itinerary. The clients which I have handled their travel for 30 years came back to tell me it was one the “BEST” trips of their lives! Thank you for helping me to make my clients so happy! Hi James, what an amazing experience we had in Scotland with you. From the nature of the Isle if Mull to music on the Isle of Skye, this truly was an unforgettable trip. We had a great time in Edinburgh also and we must get back to this beautiful city. Until next time my friend…

Dear James, on behalf of our entire family, thank you for the amazing tour of Scotland you’ve given us this last week. We enjoyed every minute and are particularly grateful for our time outdoors in the Scottish countryside… the scenery was beautiful. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and expertise and for making our visit to Scotland such a memorable experience. We were so fortunate to have you as our guide. Cheers and Happy Birthday!

The Parris family, Chicago, USA.

Dear James thanks again for a great tour! The four of us had a wonderful time in your country and this was down to your guiding expertise. We loved your commentary on the history of Scotland especially around the Stirling Bridge area and your willingness to take us to the places which are of importance to the Scots. Our walk in Glencoe was outstanding. This is an area I am well aware of and to be walking there amongst highland scenery and infamous history was simply stunning. The whole trip was a success and to be selected from the ballot to play The Old Course St Andrews just topped it off. Leah didn’t play but she enjoyed walking the course with us. We will talk about this trip and our happy times with you for years to come. Please visit us in Canada!

Dear James, Thank you for making our vacation so memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed your company and you made the whole trip run with ease. Thanks for getting us ‘off the tourist trail’ we really appreciate the extra research you did for us. Your stories and the landscape of Scotland have certainly inspired me and we hope to visit again.

James, Clan Crazy is home and we miss you already! Thank you so much for organising this Sinclair family event. To deal with 10 of us and look after us so well is no mean feat! From the youngest, Nick at 21 to the eldest Elsie, 92 you were courteous, thoughtful and did everything we asked. This will be Elsie’s last visit to Scotland and she was so happy that you were part of this trip. We are glad we made it to Orkney on this trip and as always to visit, Melvich, Golval and Brims Ness is so special to us. It was great to visit Skye and Ullapool, did you know the reason we went to Ullapool is because Margaret just loved the name! Until the next visit…

Dear James, thank you so much for your hospitality and historical insight. It has been a fabulous few days with you in Scotland and we look forward to our paths crossing again.

Sean Plank & Monica Howell, Full Sail University, Florida USA.

Dear James thanks for a fantastic day visiting Loch Lomond & The Trossachs. Your easy going nature and historical comment made it a fun and interesting day. Your tours of Stirling and Doune Castles were fascinating and we now know a lot more about the Stewarts! The photos look great, especially the one on Loch Lubnaig with the snow capped mountains beyond. We will let our travel agent know what a great day we had with you.
