Testimonials

"We can’t recommend Rodney enough, if you’re looking for a driver in Scotland. We were fortunate enough to have Rodney as our driver on our wedding day in Stirling. His professionalism and attention to detail were second to none. He ensured that we had everything we needed, from start to finish. Rodney, we can’t thank you enough for your help and we will certainly call upon you again"

"I cannot say enough about how fabulous our journey was with Rod, a truly fantastic tour guide. We were there for just a short, four-day trip but he made sure that we were able to take in all the most important sites. He was so informative and took the time to take pictures of us at every castle and scenic view. He even went as far as to ensure that we had water, snacks, and beautiful music to accompany us on our tour of the majestic Highlands. We are so thankful for his time and expert driving in this beautiful part of the world. We always felt safe and well taken care of. When we travel back to Scotland, he will be my first call"

"Rodney met us at the airport in Glasgow and shuttled us around Scotland with finesse for the better part of a week. He was always prompt and professional. He went the extra mile, like sticking around as we checked in at the end of the day. This proved critical one evening when our remote hotel couldn't accommodate us for dinner and Rodney kindly agreed to extend his day more than two hours to take us to the nearest town to eat. He took cues about our likes and dislikes and found off-the-beaten-path gems like a smaller whisky distillery to tour and a boat tour across a Loch for lunch which ended up being a highlight of our trip for all. A job well done which made for greater relaxation on our vacation"

"Rodney made our family trip to Scotland truly memorable! He is incredibly knowledgeable about all things Scotland from golf to Outlander to the Highlands. Rodney got us off the beaten path to see things we would not have found ourselves. Rodney became part of the family. We enjoyed his company and all the interesting information he had to share. We can't wait to return and have Rodney show us even more of his beautiful country"

Professional, Prompt and a Gentleman -


"We had the very good fortune of having Rodney as our dedicated driver for a month at the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Only the best drivers world-wide are selected after a thorough background check and driving assessment. Each and every day Rodney went beyond the duties of simply ferrying passengers. He was selected to be our dedicated crew driver to cover sports events and cultural stories, which at times were high stress, time-sensitive assignments in a foreign country, and in a foreign language. Without exception, he was always early to arrive, effortlessly navigated the complex roads and was a critical element in our team success. He often worked past the grueling 12-hour shifts, was always the first to volunteer to help and carried heavy equipment, and he did it all with a smile and a kind word in his wonderful brogue. Television crews travel with costly equipment-Rodney is 100% trustworthy not only with material objects but personal safety as well. You will love Rodney and his driving services. And you may just make a new friend along the way. Thank you Rodney, you are the best!!"

"Robbie Gethin Associates have enjoyed working with Rodney Johnston over the past 10 years in order to provide the professional courtesy car operations for The Open Championship on behalf of The R&A. The Open Championship offers a driving service for the professional golfers who are playing in the tournament who are looked after with courtesy car collections from the international airports, as well as the crucial daily movements to and from the venue during the Championship itself. RGA have worked with various fleets provided by the likes of Audi, Peugeot, Lexus and Mercedes, and Rodney Johnston has been the Supervisor responsible for looking after both the Operations of the entire fleet, as well as the crucially important On course Evacuation service.

 

Rodney Johnston is an extremely polite and trustworthy gentleman, who provides a first class service for all of his clients. Rodney is capable of dealing with extremely important and time crucial client logistics, as well as being able to pre-plan and carry out specific journeys professionally. Rodney is an excellent communicator and always offers that extra touch of class with everything he provides. As well as being excellent in his role as Operations Fleet Manager on behalf of RGA over the years he is a very humerous, and likable individual, who always brings out the best of his team, instilling a sense of optimism with a can do attitude. RGA have no problem recommending him for professional transportation solutions and wish him well with his ventures"

"We really enjoyed our personal tour with Rodney; outstanding service! He is not only incredibly knowledgeable of the various sites we visited, but very, very pleasant to be around, and we were with him for hours each day. He took us places we didn't even know existed, which made our time in Scotland even more fascinating.
The Scotland leg of our Honeymoon was the most fantastic part of our trip and a great deal of thanks to Rodney Johnston for that. We can't wait to return to Scotland for another excellent tour Rodney"
