In my eyes, there is no difference between the ruler of a country and a hard working couple looking for a relaxing break!


Your Private Tours of Scotland benefits from years of experience in the Travel and Customer service industries, we embarked on Personal and bespoke tours for the discerning client.  It soon became apparent that there was a lot of business out there so we managed to gather some of the best tour guides in Scotland to join us.  Our vehicles are varied from 16 seater Mercedes Sprinters to luxury 4×4 SUV’s.

Our operational base is out of Edinburgh but the guides are from all over Scotland so we can pick up and drop off from anywhere in the country.

What’s the criteria for a good tour guide?  Personality, approachability, great customer service skills with the ability to think on their feet and of course, product knowledge.  It’s pointless having a guide who know every acedemic fact but can’t tell you the words of the “Jeely piece” song! .  Let us embark on an adventure that you will never forget, from 1 – 16 day experiences.

Our private tours of Scotland offer a range of experiences to meet various requirements.  Whether you want to tour St. Andrews, the home of Golf, Movie Locations, Historical Stirling or look for your Clan Ancestry in the Scottish Highlands.
