Tours include for pick up and return from either your hotel or other agreed collection point.

All classic and destination tours are of one day duration; the mileages and timings stated in our marketing information are based on travel from Perth and may vary depending upon the tour start point.

Our normal tour catering is a combination of home cooked pastries and quality food and drinks purchased from reputable local suppliers and artisan producers in Perthshire (See picnic menu).

Special requests in respect of dietary requirements can be arranged and we will try to accommodate all reasonable requests, provided the Client advises the Company at the time of booking the tour.

The intent of each tour is that the catering is served ‘al fresco’ but in the event of poor weather we may have to offer alternative arrangements using bistro’s and hotels on the tour route. In such cases we should be able to advise of this arrangement at the start of the tour.
