    The accommodation at the PentaHotel was totally inappropriate for a single 60 year old woman. When I arrived at the bar/reception I had to wait while the bartender served drinks to the men at the bar. When I returned after supper there were men outside the hotel that were drunk and trying telling one another to act sober or they would not be allowed in the hotel. On the way to the elevator two younger men wanted to keep high fiving me and then went up to my floor with me. I felt super uncomfortable. During the evening there were young men banging on the doors of the adjacent rooms and insisting on gaining entry. Around 2am there was a loud bang and then I heard your women crying. In the morning the breakfast area was still dark and played loud music, which was appropriate for a bar but not for breakfast. It would be a real "happening place" for younger people, but I did not feel safe leaving my room. Even though I had paid 66 pounds a night more for a hotel room (I was not aware that there was a cost difference when I booked online), I moved to the B&B that my colleague was booked into - Duncraig Villa. This was perfect in every way - clean, safe, excellent owner, incredible food, and extremely quiet. It made my trip so pleasant and I would recommend it to everyone. Duncan Fraser was the best tour guide and made both days spent with him super enjoyable and informative. Malcolm was the best driver and his partner Gary was so attentive to all the customers. That was a marvelous day as well. I am very grateful for the transfer to Glasgow and John picking me up in the vehicle that drove me to Glasgow airport. If I had been in the Dungraig Villa B&B from the beginning I would say that the tour was perfect. I will recommend it to everyone as the best way to see Scotland. I appreciate the prompt action for moving me to the B&B following the first night at Pentahotel. I wish you continued success!

    THE DRIVER/ORGANISER WAS OUTSTANDING. THE GUIDE WE HAD FOR GLASGOW AND SCOTLAND WAS MEDIOCRE. THE GUIDE FOR EDINBURUGH WAS GOOD PRETTY GOOD. THERE WAS A MIX UP AS REGARDS OUR TRANSFER TO AND FROM THE AIRPORTS.

    The only problem we had was with the local guide in Edinburgh. I think his name was Ed.
