The ability to call from the US to the office, directly, was so helpful. I had questions pop up before the trip, and the access to informed office staff was a plus.
David and Craig were terrific guides. They showed us things we never would have seen on our own. They were sensitive to the needs and abilities of the group, and offered helpful suggestions to improve my cycling skills (especially to climb the mountains).
Accommodation & Food
We loved the inns in small towns. While the hotel in Dendee was lovely, we couldn’t really walk anywhere safely. Food selections were representative of the country, and the guides were able to help us understand menu choices.
David and Craig showed great pride in their country of Scotland. They shared all kinds of information with us-history, geography, weather, culture, etc.
The Bottom Line
The tour we did, cycling Inverness to Edinburgh, is a challenging ride. We were looking to ride 35-40 miles per day, and we did! The towns we visited along the way were charming. The roads were safe for riding. In fact, motorists went out of their way to give us room (this doesn’t happen often in the US). The people we met were kind and eager to chat with us. And the scenery- well it’s just spectacular.
