I have just been on a long planned Whiskey trip to Scotland, with a few friends. We had the opportunity to let Armstrong's Journeys drive us around. It was a fantastic trip with great service "on board". We were met at the airport by our Driver/Guide, Guy, who warmly welcomed us to Scotland and to Amstrong's Journeys. We had concerns about where to find somethings to eat, on our way to Islay, where we had a fairly tight schedule.
It wasn't a problem, though, because when we were in the Jaguar, it turned out that there was freshly brewed coffee, and a snack box with biscuits, Chocolate, soda, water and freshly made sandwiches ... It was just to sit back and enjoy the ride. Btw.. along with the snack box, there were, due to the theme of the tour, 2 small bottles of whiskey and a small gift from Armstrong's Journeys ... Great.... but I won't reveal what the gift was 😉 We left for 6 days and every morning we were greeted by the car, where freshly brewed coffee and a refilled snack...
 A trip for kings. We are all 3 very grateful. We have only praise, for the treatment we have received, and great admiration for Guys historical knowledge, and his ability to pass it on. We would choose Armstrong's Journeys again.

"A fantastic day in the best of company, with a visit to Abbotsford House (Now we know all about Sir Walter Scott), then Traquair - with a guide and in an Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire from 1959. It doesn’t get any better - We love Scotland."

What a memorable day out! We felt like we were on a honeymoon. The Armstrong car is beautiful and stylish, while at the same time a very smooth ride. Guy’s knowledge of history is fantastic. He knows so many interesting details and stories which made the drive a very rich and special experience. Guy has a way with words and humour that kept us riveted and entertained for the whole journey. It was the best day of our holiday in Scotland for both of us.

Story about Bloody Mackenzie and Greyfriars Kirk graveyard, Edinburgh. Tour by classic or modern luxury car of Edinburgh

.".so nice to do something truly different, what a treat. Guy is a great communicator and seems always to adjust the story to fit the needs of his passengers, not working off a tired old script here! Guy’s background in film and television adds sparkle to the stories...who else would have a driver who’s filmed the return of Bloody Mckenzie’s head to his grave in Greyfriars graveyard? …    "

"We spent a long weekend in Scotland doing a recce for our wedding at Neidpath Castle in the Scottish Borders, where Jason’s family are from. We stayed in Edinburgh, but rather than get a hire car we hired Guy to take us down to the venue , what a delight that turned into . We had a brilliant day, we did a minitour of Edinburgh’s Old Town before heading down to the Borders. An action packed day in a fabulous old car, so beautiful.  I almost wish we hadn’t booked the cottage at Neidpath to stay in before the wedding, then we could have asked Guy to take us to the Castle on our wedding day in that lovely car."

Edinburgh airport pick up and mini tour of Edinburgh.by classic car
"Nancy and I just want to thank you again for the fabulous experience you gave us, driving us from the airport to our hotel at Charlotte Square!  At first the thrill was the car:  who wouldn't be knocked out being chauffeured in a '50's Armstrong Siddeley in amazing condition.  After that it was the route you picked, so that we had the thrill of sneaking up on the castle before stopping on the Mound for photos and a nip, and then seeing the City at out feet.  Finally, I must say that it was your commentary, your personality, and your concern for us, that made this so special.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We will tell our friends not to even consider a visit without including you!"
