    Dear Mr Shah, I'm sorry to read you did not enjoy your tour with us. We depart from 1 centrally located departure point in Edinburgh this tour. Of course, people stay in different properties whilst on the tour as we offer different types of accommodation, and people request different room types. We do not guarantee a certain group size. Also, all of our buses are less than 3 years old. Kind Regards, Clare

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • Should I get travel insurance?

    We highly recommend you take out travel insurance.

  • What should I bring with me?

    As above, it is always advisable to be prepared for any weather in Scotland so a jacket is always a good idea! A bottle of water for hydration and a camera to capture the spectacular views and you are set to go!It is not necessary for you to bring your own meals, as we will stop throughout the day in small towns or villages where you can purchase food, however you are more than welcome to bring along snacks or a packed lunch.

  • What should I wear?

    Whilst there are no strenuous physical activities on our tours, we would recommend you wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and a jacket is always advisable.

  • What will the weather be like?

    Scotland is routinely unpredictable, but we do have a very temperate climate. The geography of Scotland means that it does rain more frequently in the west of the country and there are stronger winds in the east.

  • Are there luggage limitations?

    Due to the size of our vehicles, on our multi-day tours, we guarantee to carry one piece of luggage per passenger of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm, with a maximum of 15kg. This is equivalent to hand luggage allowed in an aircraft cabin.Should you have larger suitcases or luggage, there are left luggage offices at the train and bus stations in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.If you are wishing to bring your luggage with you on a one-day tour, please contact us for further arrangements.

  • Is there an age limit?

    We are happy to welcome anyone from the age of 3 years old and up on all of our scheduled tours!We can only accept children under 3 on the Multi-Lingual Highland Adventure one-day tour and they will travel at the appropriate infant rate. We cannot accept children under 3 on any other scheduled tour.

  • When do I need to check-in for my tour?

    Check-in closes 15 minutes before your tour is due to depart.If you think you will be late for check-in, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know. In fairness to all passengers, our tours will depart promptly at their scheduled time.

  • Will I have time off the vehicle?

    When we plan our tours we aim to get as much of a balance as possible between free time and travelling time. We want you to experience the best of Scotland, so you will not be travelling for much more than two hours without a break on any of our tours.

  • Is tipping required for the driver?

    A gratuity for good service is always appreciated.
