Scotland vacation – help choosing tour company!?
I’m shopping around for an all inclusive tour company for my parents to tour Scotland for their anniversary. I’ve priced out a few options including Globus, Get Around Tours, Authentic Ireland (they have an Ireland/Scotland tour) and GlasglowGirl while still checking out others. They are turning out to be around $5k. It is a surprise trip and they have never been to Europe before so I want them to have an amazing time. Not looking for little excursions – I want one of the 7-9 day trips that is a guided with a group and covers historical places, sightseeing, etc. and that arranges the travel and accommodations as I know nothing about Scotland and don’t have the time. My main concern is that I’m hesitant to believe all the testimonials on the website (call me paranoid but a lot of them seem like they’re written by the same person). Also, I read conflicting reviews of Globus’ accommodations (some were awful!) and that was the one I was leaning toward. Does anyone know anything about these agencies or have experience with them or any others? I really want a solid, reputable company and am willing to spend a little more over budget if I have to. I want them to have the trip of a lifetime! Thanks!
You are really asking this in the wrong forum as people looking here are mainly in the UK and can’t advise you about US travel agencies or costs. Why not go and get expert advice from a reputable travel agent who will be able to guide you to selectiong of the right trip. BTW – what a lovely thing to do for your mum and dad.
