    We had the pleasure of Ella being our guide. She was knowledgable and obvioulsy loves her job; her enthusiasm for the history of St Andrews truly made the tour interesting. She was happy to answer questions and pause a little longer at some spots until the appropriate facts were covered and questions answered.St Andrews isn't the largest town in the world, so the tour is relatively compact, but definitely worth taking. It would be far too easy to walk around the three main streets and not fully appreciate the story behind the most obvious of buildings and to miss so many other points of interest that once seen are obvious, but wouldn't have been without our guide. Definitely recommended.

    Great morning spent learning about this beautiful town. Guide Ellie was fun, friendly and very knowledgable. She answered any questions we had, and spoke well on all subjects, historical or modern in relation to the town. Highly recommend trip.
