What Are Scotland Tours?
Scotland tours are prepackaged trips with a set itinerary and dedicated tour manager. Many people who want to take a Scotland vacation want to avoid all the planning and logistics involved in a big week or two week foreign trip abroad and are looking to save money by doing it all in a package instead of piecing things together at full price. The trip is led by a tour director who will take care of all the services from beginning to the end of your vacation. Your tour director connects you with local tour guides who will have a lot of knowledge on the specific cities you explore. Typically, hotels, transportation throughout your trip, some meals and sightseeing are arranged and included with the price of your Scotland tour.
It's likely that somewhere along your Scotland tour, you'll hear traditional bagpipe music. Perhaps you'll partake in the traditional Haggis Ceremony or watch some Highland dancers. And don't forget, Scotland is also known for its tartan plaid and its fine whisky - two souvenirs you might want to take home to remember a lovely Scotland vacation.
What's Included on an Scotland Tour?
Scotland tours typically begin and/or end in Edinburgh. Here, you can't miss Edinburgh Castle, dominating the city's skyline. Other popular stops on Scotland vacations include St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf; Inverness on the banks of the River Ness (stop at Urqhart Castle to try to spot the Loch Ness Monster "Nessie"); and Glasgow with its magnificent St. Mungo's Cathedral.
Generally, a Scotland tour will include as many services as possible, giving you less to worry about. Usually included on your Scotland tour are: transportation (getting from place to place while on tour), accommodations, most meals, and the services of a dedicated tour director. As per the itinerary, certain sightseeing opportunities are also included: tickets to special VIP access to the most famous landmarks, skip the lines, and when available, access to a personal local guide for expert commentary.
