Experience Scotland Safely
Keeping You Safe
The safety of our passengers, our colleagues and the wonderful local communities we visit is of the utmost importance to us and we are taking the following steps to ensure that it continues to be held paramount.
Your tour guide is used to making changes under pressure to give you the best experience possible. They are kept up to date on current safety protocols and will ensure that all passengers adhere to safety advice in order to ensure a safe journey for everyone. Your guide will carefully manage passengers boarding and disembarking the vehicle and the location of seats for passengers on board. Your guide will wear a facial covering except when driving in accordance with Department for Transport guidance.
Our luxury vehicles will be deep cleaned by hand before and after each tour. In addition to this all vehicles will be further sanitised after each tour using a fogging machine. The antibacterial and antiviral disinfectant used in the fogging machine is distributed throughout the vehicle in a fine mist. This ensures all areas including touch surfaces and seats are fully sanitised and the vehicle is safe and ready for each tour.
Contactless Check In
In order to maintain minimum contact please provide your name and booking reference at check in. Printed confirmation is not required.
During Your Tour
Each passenger will keep their own seat throughout the tour. Any common touch points will be regularly wiped down by the driver/guide throughout the tour.
Hand sanitiser will be available on all of our vehicles. We strongly advise passengers to use this when boarding and disembarking from the vehicle. It will remain available for your use throughout the tour.
All passengers on board must wear a face covering while boarding and travelling on board the vehicle in line with Scottish Government advice. Masks are available to purchase if you arrive without a face covering. **If you are medically exempt from wearing a face covering please let us know in writing in advance of your travel date**

Questions & Answers
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.
