We often do Multi Day Tours for groups that want to see more than is possible in one day. So, if you have an idea of where you'd like to go and what you'd like to see, click "Enquire Now " and email Chris with some info on your group and your interests.

And if you like the look of some of our tours and would like to see some example itineraries, email us and Emily or Chris will send some options over, based on your interests. We can easily combine many of the Day Tours in order to make an epic Multi Day Tour.

How Our Multi Day Tours Work
1. You email and tell Chris W what you are interested in
2. Chris sends an email back with tour options
3. When the tour itinerary is agreed upon, Chris W recommends accommodation in each location
4. You book your accommodation and then pay for the tour via Paypal
5. We finalise the itinerary and Chris W recommends/reserves tasty local restaurants at each location

We charge a Day Rate for the guided tour and an extra £60 for accommodation for your guide. The Day Rate is based on how many people are in the group and how long each day is.

This tour is perfect for:
- Anyone who wants to get an in-depth look at Scotland
- Anyone who wants to go north of Glencoe
- Anyone looking for a very personal experience of Scotland

Here's a video of some Dolphins we saw on one of our Multi Day Tours in Arisaig, near Glenfinnan!

There's nowhere like Skye



The Isle of Skye is simply an awe-inspiring place with some of the best views in Britain......perhaps Europe.....perhaps the world! Add to the mix friendly locals, great local seafood, intriguing folklore/history and it's clear why people from all over the world want to visit.

The journey to Skye is also not to be missed. We drive up through the West Highlands, stopping at Glencoe, Glenfinnan and then take the ferry from Mallaig to Armadale (Skye). The ferry crossing alone is stunning.

We recommend 3-4 days to make the most of Skye as there's a lot to do and see on the island. From Edinburgh it's a relatively long, windy drive and for that reason we usually spend one night in Glencoe or Fort William on the way to our destination.

This tour is perfect for:
- Anyone with lots of time in Scotland to enjoy the best of the country
- Anyone interested in getting away from urban life
- Anyone looking for an epic experience

Private Outlander Tour



When we get asked about it, we describe Outlander as a mix between Braveheart, Back to the Future and Sex and the City! The show has taken the world by storm, but the original books are also worth a read!

We only recommend this tour to hardcore Outlander fans, as we squeeze a lot of stops into one day. And although we can't promise you'll get to meet Jamie, you will see where he lived!

On this private tour, we visit;

- Midhope Castle (Lallybroch)
- Doune Castle (Castle Leoch)
- Culross (Cranesmuir)
- Falkland (Inverness)
- Blackness Castle (Fort William)

Optional Extras include:
- Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison)
- Hopetoun House (used as Duke of Sandringham's residence)
- Aberdour Castle (used as monastery at end of Season 1)

If some members of your group are not Outlander fans, we can mix the itinerary with some stops that appeal everyone, such as Whisky Tasting and short hikes.

Travel Agency Groups



If you're looking to partner with a local Edinburgh Tour Company in order to give your customers the most personal and fun experience of Scotland you've come to the right page!

We often work in partnership with Travel Agencies who want to give their customers a fantastic local experience of Scotland.

Whether you are looking for a Walking Tour, bespoke Highland Tour or even if you want your group to go to a Traditional Highland Games, we'll put together a memorable experience for them.

Old Town Orientation Tour



This Private Tour is perfect for anyone who's just arrived in Edinburgh and wants an overview of the city's history and things to do/places to eat. And if you're going to other places in Scotland we'll happily make recommendations for the rest of your holiday too!

Perfect for groups of friends or families, we cater this tour to each Private Group. So if you have a specific interest in Harry Potter or you want to know which pubs to go to for Craft Beer or Whisky, let us know in your Enquiry.

We walk around the historic Old Town on this tour, giving you a great overview of Edinburgh's most famous and recognisable landmarks. By the end of the 3 hours, you'll know more about the history of Edinburgh than the average Scot!

Informative and Engaging....but also Fun!



We do tours for School Groups of all ages and as we have a range of guides - also of all ages - we guarantee we can organise an experience that fits your needs.

Many of our guides are still in their 20's (only just!) and if you want a Tour Guide who can connect with your students then we'd perhaps suggest one of our younger guides for your tour.

We routinely do Walking Tours, Driving Tours and Multi-day Tours with School Groups from North America and elsewhere, and it's always fun!
