Our Personal Itinerary Tours
Imagine a tour that encompasses places, sights, experiences or perhaps themes straight off your own wish list, then add in a few ‘wow’ factor landscapes and some ‘off grid secrets’ and it’s a tour like no other, giving up lasting memories of the real Scotland. That’s exactly what our 5 star rated Personal Itinerary Tours deliver.
We believe that days spent exploring Scotland are special and so aim to create that magic for you by making your tour unique and memorable. Places to visit and sights to see are endless but by tailoring your tour itinerary around your particular interests, with perhaps the odd surprise, your time with us is maximised.
The high quality, personal service we offer starts when you first contact us and is maintained to the end of your time with us in Scotland. The meticulous planning and pre tour preparation preceding each tour is as dedicated as the days we accompany you on the actual tours.
How does it all work?
By first contact you may have already pre-conceived notions of where and what you would like to see and do, or the canvas may be blank. Either is fine as we will discuss with you, by email, some outline ideas, routes, timings, visit and attraction options to open the tour creation process.
From that initial brief a more detailed draft itinerary will be created for your comment. All the days of your tour will be covered, suggestions offered for accommodation and other activities, lunch stops etc, which could be incorporated in your tour experience. The draft will be developed in discussion with you.
When the draft reflects your tour requirements and options have been selected or rejected a final tour itinerary with prices will be produced and sent to you. If this is agreeable, you will be asked to confirm the booking and pay the full tour price, which is refundable if the tour is cancelled.
Payment is made via an email originated secure link system operated by Worldpay, a reputable worldwide secure payment organisation, which restricts card details to yourself and Worldpay only.
Following booking, regular contact is maintained via email keeping you updated and finalising meeting and collection details for the start of your tour experience.
Each tour guest or family is provided with a ‘take home’ pack of information, comprising; guide books, maps, attraction details, associated with each tour. The pack will be available in the vehicle for you on Day 1.
Experience suggests the choice of hotel accommodation tends to be influenced by personal taste and so is best arranged directly by guests. A guide selection of recommended establishments applicable to each tour will be provided and assistance is available if required.
The price of all tours usually includes morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch. Dietary requirements would be discussed during the itinerary preparation process. (Please see About our Tours for more details).
Daily tour itineraries are flexible with timings matched to a relaxed pace, providing the opportunity to linger at a place that really appeals. It's often the little thing that is most memorable and makes the day special. Tour days are generally not time limited.
Covid-19 has dictated changes to our operation and a number of new procedures have been implemented to provide safe touring. Please see About our Tours page for details.
Personal itinerary tours provide the opportunity to create and experience your very own memories of this mythical and magical land called Scotland.
