Family Tour of England & Scotland

(11 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
London, Edinburgh, Scottish Highlands

The ultimate private family tour of England and Scotland, this itinerary features inspiring cultural experiences that showcase the best of British history and legends; classic British experiences suitable for travelers of all ages; and time to relax at a family-friendly resort hotel in the beautiful Scottish countryside.

Begin in London, one of the great cities of the world and an endlessly fascinating destination for adults and children alike. During flexible private touring with your own Blue Badge guide and driver, experience London according to the interests of your family members. Some of our favorite family-friendly options include seeing the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London; touring awe-inspiring Westminster Abbey to learn about some of England’s greatest monarchs, poets and scientists; coming face-to-face with mummies at the British Museum and dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History; visiting Harry Potter sites such as the London Zoo and Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station; taking a ride on the London Eye for spectacular views over the city; seeing the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace; sampling sweets and treats galore in the food halls of Harrods; riding a double-decker bus; and browsing one of the best toy stores in the world. Upon request, enjoy classic London experiences such as a traditional afternoon tea at Claridge’s and a theater performance in the West End. Also, enjoy a private excursion to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, the Harry Potter Studios, Bath, Oxford or the Cotswolds.

Next, visit Edinburgh, the stunning capital of Scotland, for two nights in a legendary city hotel. During flexible touring with your private guide, explore the city according to your interests. Tour the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See iconic Edinburgh Castle and walk along the Royal Mile, the road leading from the castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Your guide will regale you with fascinating, and at times, spine-tingling, stories about the historic buildings lining the road. Adults and children alike will also enjoy exploring narrow closes (alleys) and stairways that branch off the Royal Mile to connect to different levels of the city. Other touring and leisure time options in Edinburgh include visiting the Royal Yacht Brittania, the Brass Rubbing Center, and Our Dynamic Earth. Also visit shops noted for Scottish products such as wool items and tweed. Depending on your family's interests, you may wish to visit the Royal Botanic Garden, the National Gallery, to tour the incredible architecture at the Scottish Parliament Building, or hike an extinct volcano for a panoramic overview of Edinburgh and the nearby Firth of Forth, a tidal bay connected to the North Sea.

Next, transfer to the Scottish Highlands with touring en route. Visit Stirling, a strategic town on the edge of the Highlands that played an important role in the battles for Scottish independence. Tour Stirling Castle, which perches on a rocky outcrop and has panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes. Also visit the National Wallace Monument, a landmark dedicated to one of Scotland’s greatest heroes. Continue through the breathtaking scenery of Glen Coe, one of the most beautiful regions in the Highlands.

Stay two nights at Inverlochy Castle, set in private grounds at the base of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the United Kingdom, just outside Fort William. One day, enjoy a private excursion through the Great Glen to Inverness, passing through classic Highlands scenery of narrow lochs and rugged mountains. Enjoy a cruise on Loch Ness, and perhaps scan the waters for Nessie, the elusive Loch Ness monster. Also visit the historic ruins of Urquhart Castle, one of the largest castles in Scotland, which sits on the shore of Loch Ness.

Next, transfer back through the Highlands, stopping at scenic spots and whisky distilleries en route. Stay two nights at Gleneagles, a family-friendly resort on 850 acres in the rolling hills of the Perthshire countryside. During leisure time, enjoy on-site activities such as golf, fishing, horseback riding, biking, quad bike riding, falconry, tennis and more. There’s also a golf academy for younger players, as well as a kids club sure to inspire the little ones. One day, perhaps opt for a private excursion to nearby St. Andrews, a seaside university town and the birthplace of golf.

This tour can be fully customized to suit your family’s interests and needs.

We loved every minute of our China trip…The activities for our children were spectacular, and the school visits and home visits were definitely highlights of the trip. Our kids will never forget how much fun they had flying kites on the Great Wall of China!

We had a wonderful trip to Egypt and Jordan. We were well-cared for at every stop…We were impressed with how knowledgeable the guides are and how accommodating they were to the needs of our three-generation group.
