“I just wanted to take a moment to express my deep appreciation for the very kind service that both Shaun and Allan provided to Denise and I during our stay in Scotland.  Shaun’s patience was very appreciated as he had to endure our delay in the flight from Dublin to Edinburgh, and then as he had to drive in the very heavy traffic leaving the airport. I am sure he was put several hours behind schedule and he was cheerful, polite, helpful and professional the entire time we were with him.  Please thank him again for his service to us.

Allan, too, was a consummate professional who represented your company so very well.  I cannot express enough how impressed I was with the research he did and the information he provided to me about my Scottish family history.  What a fine gentleman he is to go to all that effort for me, a person he did not know and who he would only be with for one short day.  He was very informative during our driving tour and he took us to all the right places for us to get a sense of where my family lived, as well as a mill similar to one they may have worked in, and St. Andrews Golf Course and town – such a nice experience to have seen these areas!

It has been a pleasure doing business with you and if we ever pass through Edinburgh again, we will be sure to contact you.”

Mike and Denise Gibbons

“My husband and I took our 21 year old daughter with autism on her first European trip last year. I am so grateful that we connected with Isobel at Edinburgh Executive Carriage to handle our ground transportation needs in Scotland. She could not have been more helpful and responsive and went above and beyond to help pave the way for the special needs of our family.  We received great information and input into our itinerary and very quick responses to our questions. Sam, our driver, was friendly, informative, professional and always ready when we were. I would absolutely use their services again and have no hesitation in giving them the highest of praises.”

“My family and I highly recommend Edinburgh Executive Carriages for all of your traveling needs. Isobel helped our brood organize everything from transferring and commuting from the airport to planning an amazing tour through the Highlands.  Our personal driver- Steve, truly made the actual Scottish adventure one that will be remembered for a lifetime. Everyone with Edinburgh Executive Carriages, who had a hand in our vacation experience went above and beyond to make sure our trip was not only smoothly planned but also truly a one of a kind event. Thank you!!!”

“We have used your Company’s limousine service for six days in a row. Both transfers and long range sightseeing trips were done under very comfortable conditions and super friendly atmosphere. We are truly grateful to you especially with your extra efforts in organizing our trip in detail and delivering all in full precision and punctuality. We are very impressed by your finesse as well as by your true professionalism. We certainly believe that Edinburgh Executive Carriages needs better recognition and wider acclaim because it has a real devoted & caring runner/driver like yourself! Therefore, we will pass the good word to all interested parties heading your way”.
