Questions & Answers

Question: How many are in the group?

The maximum group size is 40, but we do not know how many people for sure will be on your group. It's possible there is less than 40 but never any more than that.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Our travel agent Derek went over and above to make sure our trip was what we wanted. Main reason was to visit the Eileen Donan Castle and Derek made sure we had 1 hr or more here. Thank you sir!

CIE tour was great! A fabulous tour guide - Pat and driver Desmond. Pat was very pleasant, humorous - and was extremely accommodating - to make sure my travel experience was comfortable. Especially since I was travelling solo. Desmond kept us safe on the road and was an amazing drive! The tour covered so many beautiful sites in Scotland! I also enjoyed visiting so many castles - which is what I wanted to do! Everything went perfectly! Thank you!

We were unsure what to expect, however the Scottish Dream Tour far exceeded what we thought the tour would entail.

2nd trip with CIE. both were up to expectations. good drivers and guides. good selection of places to tour.
