Kate is a remarkable…. Encyclopedic and engaging tour guide. We really couldn’t have asked for a better guide!
Hugh was fantastic. We've done many Context tours over the years in many cities, and Hugh was one of the best we’ve had. Exemplified the style, content and manner of a great Context tour. Hard to improve.
Irene was a terrific guide. Very engaging and we learned a lot. I think spending time with her at the beginning of our trip will enhance our entire visit to Scotland.
