Car rental centre Even if you’re an independent traveller, and prefer to hire a car and go your own way on vacation, you can still take advantage of the tremendous knowledge and expertise we have gained from doing tours around Scotland for several years, by using our tour planning service.

Here’s how it works - you give us your requirements - that is to say, some idea of roughly where you want to go, the kinds of things you are interested in seeing and doing, your budget and the time you have available. We can then design a bespoke itinerary for you which includes our recommendations for the most suitable places for you to visit and the best routes to take. We can design a mixed itinerary or a themed itinerary, depending on your preference. We can advise on the best visits, the most scenic routes, accommodation, restaurants, parking places, etc. Everything to make your holiday more enjoyable and stress free.

Our invaluable advice provides, among other things:

  • Practical hints and tips - eg booking tickets for Edinburgh Castle in advance will save you heaps of time by avoiding the lengthy ticket queue
  • Timings - Google route maps for each day of your tour showing how long roughly it takes to get from A to B
  • How long to allow for each visit
  • What to be sure not to miss while you’re there

Some tour planning truisms

  • Busy people are often too busy to plan their own holiday properly
  • But that means you really only have enough time to plan once you’re actually on your holiday!
  • Effective tour planning requires local knowledge
  • But you only get to know the place well enough just as you’re leaving!

So....Rather than just leaving it to chance to discover the best places, why not let us plan your tour of Scotland for you?
