Guided tours feedback given



20 February 2017

You may recall chauffeuring and and humorously enlightening our friends Tom and Sandy Craven and my wife Jan and me regarding various sites of significance to Clan Lamont last June.  Those two days remain the highlight of our visit, and I thank you again for your part in it all.

Kind Regards

First class service from Taxi George on our Team Day out in Glasgow! He ran us about from venue to venue, his price was great, his timing was perfect, and just had great customer service. We will definitely use George again and would thoroughly recommend him for group hire! Thanks George!

Absolutely the best taxi ride we have ever experienced. He drove us (a family of five with small children) around showing the most beautiful parts of Scotland in the area and gave us great recommendations, too. On top of that, he's delightful company!

Thanks so much to Taxi George tonight for getting us to the Holy Loch Inn, Sandbank to enjoy our meal (prize in Dunoon Presents Christmas Draw).

Lovely meal & service.

George is the best taxi driver in Dunoon!! Always reliable and always friendly. My kids think he's brilliant too. He always has a smile for them. Couldn't rate him highly enough.

I was picked up in Greenock right on schedule. We took a drive through Rest and Be Thankful. Learned history saw sights and made a friend. George checked on me during my day in Dunoon and we took the ferry back to the cruise ship. A wonderful day. Thanks, George

George was the highlight of our stay in Dunoon! I predict that there will be a historic plaque placed outside of the house where he was born! Oh and Im still not making eye contact with the sheep lol

Our tour with Taxi George was by far the highlight of our two week holiday in England and Scotland. George's knowledge of the area and of the history of the Lamont Clan far exceeded our expectations - he was also very polite, hospitable and a lot of fun. We had a phenomenal experience and would recommend Taxi George to anyone. Thank you George for a day none of us will ever forget!

Taxi George took us on a Lamont tour today, very informative. George is very knowledgeable about the local history and very reasonably priced.

George provides a wonderful (and cheap) Sunday shuttle service to Dunoon's nearby Benmore Botanical Gardens. After phoning in advance, he collected me from the Dunoon ferry port, and took me across to the Gardens. Wonderfully he was more than happy to come back and collect me when I was ready. I really enjoyed my ride with him!

Taxi George is more than a taxi driver he is an excellent tour guide, friendly and knowledge, he made us feel very welcome and spoke with enthusiasm and pride for his beautiful homeland. He met us at port when we arrived in Greenock and provided us with a wonderful day touring. We would encourage anyone looking for a personalized tour to book your tour with George. We really appreciated and enjoyed the yummy snacks and refreshments he supplied. A big thank you from the Owen Family! We would definitely recommend Taxi George to our friends and family visiting this beautiful country.

What a fantastic day!  I hired George for a Dunoon tour and specific site visits in the area.  I was not disappointed.  In addition to taking my sister and I to the places I requested, places I had not seen in over 30 years. George delighted us with a tour of the Castle Museum, the town of Dunoon and its surroundings, complete with historical commentary.   George is a treasure trove of knowledge of the area, local folklore, and was great fun and company during our tour.  Thanks , George

Incredibly helpful gentleman. Understood the difficulties inherent in co-ordinating so many people for a wedding party. Helped set up an itinerary of suitable pick-up and drop-off times and was flexible with hours. The service we received was great. Will definitely use again if in the area.

We are a small charter company, St Hilda Sea Adventures, operating from Holy Loch marina near Dunoon. We have now been using Taxi George's services for many years. He is an asset to our own business, transporting our passengers from Glasgow airport to the marina, taking them on land tours in the area which he knows so well, or just picking them up from the ferry terminal in Dunoon and bringing them safely to our boat St Hilda. He is always so handsome and full of humour, delighting all our passengers with his charm and kindness.
At the beginning of a new season, we are looking forward to working soon with George again, knowing we can rely on him at all times.

I booked George to taxi my extended family back after a rare gathering. What a wonderful service. He arrived on time, waited with good humour for us to get organised, and safely delivered each group to their different locations. George, you're a star.

Myself and Joe Murphy had a brilliant tour with George just last week (Valentine's Day). He took us up to Dunans Castle, and showed us many more things on the way there and the way back. He is very knowledgeable and well-informed about the history of this area, and very approachable to ask questions if you have any. He offers a very friendly, competitive service, and I would certainly recommend him.
Thanks George! You made our day

Joe Murphy I can only second my lovely girlfriends (: words. Much more than a taxi journey, we didn't just go from a to b. We stopped off at some lovely extra places on the way that George wanted to show us, as well as being told the history and story about everything we passed. More than a fair price, with extra stops and wealths of information thrown in free of charge. Highly recommend (:



In May 2010 my cousin and I had the great good fortune of being connected to George Darroch (by Colin and Christine of Abbot's Brae Hotel, in Dunoon) for a day tour.  George was supremely helpful in suggesting routes and sights, based on our expressed interests (Glen Coe being a must), and even before we set out we knew we were in excellent hands.  George's eclectic knowledge of the area-- the history, biology, geography, politics, snippets of local lore--made the day a highlight of our visit to Scotland.  I should add that this was my sixth or seventh trip to Scotland, but George made it one of the most memorable.  We felt  that we were with a friend, in addition to a highly professional, dedicated guide who clearly loves his country and wants others to appreciate its beauty and charms.  Thanks to George, we did.  I recommend with enthusiasm  his services; one could not do better.

Had a great 10 hour day touring Lamont country back in May.  I loved being able to construct our tour, with your help George, but at the end found it to be more than we can do. But no worry, we will return to take up where we left off!
Great tour and good company,
Thanks for the memories, George! from Chip and Dede White.
