Ode to Secret Scotland


Dear Aurélia and Mike,

Just like pictures of Scotland can’t do justice to the magnificence of the actual landscape, words can’t do justice to the brilliance and sheer volume of work you put in your guide. The level of detail provided on each stopover sheet, in all the different itinerary options and on all the B&B features exceeded even my most crazy expectations.

This was by far the best investment I made when I started planning our trip to Scotland. The whole process of actually buying the guide was quick and painless – and that’s a great advantage for your service – but it’s the fact that the buying of the guide didn’t mean the end of our business relation that sets you apart from the competition.

We exchanged many emails over the course of nine months, me always asking more questions and you always answering and making adjustments to your recommendations. I think that over these nine months, we became a little more than a business relation, something I highly value from any company I deal with.

I wish there was a “Secret ________” for every country – that would make planning all my trips a breeze.

Many many thanks from a very satisfied dude.


Full Disclosure Statement: I was in no way paid, compensated, fed, treated to a limo ride and/or did not receive anything else that may be considered a form of payment to write this post. Secret-Scotland really is an awesome service, and I recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Scotland. Also note that I will not be paid, compensated, fed, treated to a limo ride and/or will receive any form of payment should you decide to do business with Secret-Scotland in the near or far future. I did ask that they name their new kid after me, but don’t worry they flatly refused.
