Escorted Journeys

If you have your own small group, from six to 24, let us use our knowledge and experience to arrange a bespoke tour just for you.

The ideal solution for a multi-generational trip of a lifetime, for a friends’ reunion or a special interest group: a personalised escorted journey will help you to make the most of our creative combinations. Explore different regions with us in Scotland, Ireland and England or just focus in depth on one country. From the architectural and foodie delights of the famous cities to far-flung corners, World Heritage Sites, romantic castles and sweeping coastal scenery, we can plan a fantastic journey to meet your specific requirements. We only work with exceptionally informative driver/guides who are brimming with enthusiasm for their area and would love to share their knowledge, local stories, myths and legends with you.

Whisky tours are a speciality of ours including distillery visits, tastings and delicious dinners. As always, all the accommodation and experiences have been personally tried and tested by members of our team (yes we had plenty of volunteers on this one) and, best of all, you will be escorted by a knowledgeable guide and driver throughout.
