    I wanted to visit Scotland on vacation and was looking for 5 days tour from London. I came to know about scottishtours through my search and loved the itinerary of their 5 days tour. It covered most of the places which I wanted to visit and also included return train tickets of London and Scotland. My only concern was there were very few reviews regarding scottishtours even when it said it is member of ABTA. As their tours were offering most of my travel requirements I went ahead and booked the tour and Im so glad I did!!! The tour experience was fantastic. From the start to end there has been no complains. The tour included accommodation and the accommodation that was provided to us was amazing. All located in the center of the city and very close to the coach station was we did not have to hurry in the morning to catch the tour coach. The tour coordinator(Euan) has been very helpful and informative, he made sure everything was arranged perfectly. He also provided us upgrade to our day tour to Skye with the new tour including few more places to visit and we were not disappointed at all. We were arranged tour coaches of Timberbush and Highland experiences and both the tours had excellent guides who told us the stories of the places we were visiting. We missed our coach to inverness(which included Lochness experience) from Edinburgh on the second day of our tour, but the tour was kind enough to arrange an alternative tour(with similar itinerary) which left in an hour and it was awesome. I would definitely recommend Scottishtours for best experience of Scotland.

    Excellent tour. We took a train from London to Edinburgh. Our guide did an outstanding job of giving history (even while his wife was "expecting" any day) and pointing out locations and occurrences that were not specifically part of the tour. We highly recommend this tour.
