"Best trip ever!"

My 13-day Concierge Tour was simply wonderful. Traveling with Traveling Soul Tours was a splendid choice. Our Concierge and Guide team were so knowledgeable, patient and fun! We saw so many unique places which were magnified by our guide’s unbelievable knowledge and love of Scotland. The small group size (5) and being so flexible in where we went and what we saw made it the best vacation ever. One day, our guide made an unplanned detour to walk us through Inverewe Garden, a beautiful National Trust botanical garden, that we never would have seen if not for his knowledge and kindness. I feel this is a must-do trip for anyone who loves history.

“I would give the highest rating possible, and then some!”

"Fabulous! Exceeded all expectation"

A Traveling Soul Tours trip is so special because they really listened to the needs, likes, and wishes of our group and worked that into our itinerary… shopping, history, top-notch restaurants, Highland coos… everyone’s wish list was satisfied. My favorite moment on the Concierge Discovery Tour was exploring a hidden gem on Orkney Island. We waded across a causeway at low tide to reach the ancient Norse island of Brough of Birsay. We were at the top of Scotland, so remote and far away from stuff! I loved it. This trip was fun and unique because we toured a wide range of the country, not just a long stay in one city. We really visited and got to know the Scottish culture, with the help of our experienced guide.

“A 5-star experience! I loved every minute!”

"Absolutely the best trip I have ever taken"

I so appreciate Traveling Soul Tours for a wonderful trip to Scotland. The small private group gave it a personal, relaxed flavor. We enjoyed unique and lovely accommodations, fantastic food and some adventuresome days. It was a unique travel experience because it was obvious that the concierge and guide were on our schedule and agenda, not theirs. Our thoughtful guide made it evident that his desire was for us to enjoy our trip! He was very attentive, knowledgeable beyond my expectations, friendly, and accommodating with our luggage and time schedules. Some highlights of my tour were the many castles (Dunrobin, Sterling) with unbelievable gardens and the beautiful villages (Kirkwall, Plockton, Dornoch) with their great food and fun shopping.

“Ready to go again! FIVE stars!”


We enjoyed an outstanding 8-Day Concierge Tour with Traveling Soul Tours. My wife and I went with our good friends and our guide and concierge excellently looked after us all! The private small group was perfect for us to see and do exactly what we wanted. Our guide had an expert knowledge of Scottish history and was eager to share, making the trip extremely interesting. He was very accommodating in all aspects of assisting, either with baggage or a change-up in the itinerary due to our preferences. The transportation was excellent and the team went out of their way to make each day special. My favorite memories are the Isle of Skye with its rugged mountains, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and experiencing the famed Highland Games. We had so many laughs and wonderful moments – many thanks to our guide and concierge!

How long does it take to plan a trip?

In most cases, you’ll have your initial itinerary within a few days. First, we’ll (1) set up a call to get to know you and your family, friends or partner. Next, we’ll (2) ask about your interests and how you like to travel, as well as discussing ideas for your chosen destination.
