Our visit to Scotland, arranged by Shamrock Vacations, began with attending the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo August 8, followed by extensive travel with Creative Travel Connections throughout Scotland August 9 – 14.

My wife Susan I were accompanied by our son David and his wife, Karin, and their children, Maisie and John, ages 14 and 12 on their first visit to Scotland. In our collective opinions, Alan McKenzie, our guide and driver was most important and rewarding to our family! We have been the benefactors of very excellent guides in various countries around the world and Alan ranks right at the top! His professionalism, courtesies, intimate knowledge of history, geography, interesting facts and curiosities, made our days the best!

His attentiveness to our grandchildren with his pledge to “make this most memorable” for them could not be surpassed. He was humorous and engaging as he involved them is all aspects of their adventure.

I must say, he was the same with the adults, but exemplary with Maisie and John. We thank Alan for his service and friendship and heartedly recommend him without reservation! He was absolutely amazing in all aspects!’
