Ended up being the only one of this tour due to cancellations. Got a one on one with the driver - Fraser, and he was great. We kind of did the normal tour in reverse, to take advantage of timing at the Robert Burns Museum - - - a very informative tour from start to finish.

We love historical estates, Robert Burns home on one end of the spectrum, a meager living, to grand living at Culzean Park. Our first stop was to the Whitelee Wind Farm and visitors center. Has a small cafe, bathrooms, and hands on educational exhibits.

The tour was ok, the commentary wasn't that great, i've had more enthusiastic drivers and you it really makes the experience a lot better. Wish the driver invested more time and energy into it - was quite quiet a lot of the journey. Stop off points were good but if you don't pay the extra to get into museum and castle there's some hanging about - ok value for money
