I had a 2 hour walking tour with Michelle in Oban. From start to finish, Michelle made our time in Oban very special, giving us an interesting walking tour, and lots of tips, about Oban to help make our stay easier for us. I would highly recommend Michelle, and have no hesitation in using her again."
