Lovely trip to St. Andrews and the fishing villages, plenty of stops for photo opportunities and refreshments. Great value for money, our guide (Eric from Berwick) was informative and engaging throughout and kept us entertained the whole of our Journey. On arriving at St Andrews we had 3 hours free time to take in this charming little village. We stopped off for lunch In the museum cafe which was lovely, we then had a stroll around the golf course and a wander through the shops and a little pit stop at a local bar to refuel before our Journey back to Edinburgh. All in all a great day was had by all and I look forward to returning to Edinburgh and will definitely book another trip.
