What people are saying about Aberdeen
I really enjoyed this evening tour. Jacqueline pointed out buildings dating to the 16th century which were tucked away down narrow side streets which I wouldn't normally have noticed. She also explained how the city was established and Union Street constructed in 1801. She also showed us interesting black and white aerial photos of the splendid Marischal College which showed a large quad of manicured lawns in the interior, not visible from the outside at ground level. Jacqueline took us to places for food tasting including delicious cullen skink and she also had prepared for us homemade oatcakes. Cocktails at a bar to finish. A great evening out, educational and also fun.
Duff House is a grand stately home full of wonderful paintings and ornate ceilings. Really impressive. Afterwards we went to Pennan, a little community of whitewashed houses with gigantic cliffs rising behind them. Then on to Fraserburgh to a nearby lighthouse and I spent 45 minutes looking round the excellent lighthouse museum. As on the previous trip to Balmoral, Braemar and the Cairngorms, the tour guide Jacqueline was most attentive and informative, enriching my knowledge of the area.
Jacqueline is an excellent guide, and very personable, she took a lot of time and trouble explaining the history of the area and pointing out places of interest such as a circle of stones. She went out of her way to take me to Krathie Kirk and show me some really pretty villages. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommend this company Grampian Escapes and Tours.
It turns out to be a private tour as I was the only customer on this guaranteed departure. Jacqueline is very knowledgeable and flexible with time as I am the only customer. The excellent weather also made the trip very enjoyable.
The tour guide was very friendly and know a lot about the area. Would highly recommend this tour
