Do not hesitate to book with Afternoon Tea Tours. You can't ask for a better tour of Scotland. Helen's love for her beautiful country and her personalization of each tour makes you ready to plan your next visit! I was unsure how begin to plan a trip to the parts of Scotland I wanted to see in 4 days, but... More

This is the 2nd tour I have had with Helen, the last one being 5 years ago, and this time I brought my grown daughter. On this trip, we were able to spend more time and took the tour up to the Isle of Skye---highly recommended! Helen's tours are such a quality visit to Scotland. Not only does she inquire... More

Would just like to thank Helen for a wonderful afternoon tea tour. You made us feel comfortable you were very knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble. The visit to Roslyn Chapel was excellent but the afternoon tea at the Cringletie house hotel near Peebles definitely took the biscuit ( literally lol ) loved the whole tour and what fantastic...

My wife and teenage daughter along with myself had six full days to explore Edinburgh and its surrounding areas. A year earlier we spent one day there, as part of a cruise tour, which whet our appetite for more. One day was clearly too little, but with so much to see how could we maximize our experience for the six... More

Helen planned a brilliant day tour of Perthshire for my husband and me. We were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary, had only a few days to spend in Scotland, and were looking for a tour that would give us a flavor of the Scottish Highlands without having to spend too much time in the car. Helen's husband Robert picked us... More

I booked a tour as a surprise for my mothers birthday, as a part of our holiday. The places we were taken to by our guide were absolutely amazing and were exactly what we were hoping to see on our trip, but were only able to visit because of afternoon tea tours. I would highly recommend getting away from the... More

Nine of my famiy (from the east coast of the US) traveled to Scotland, in part to check out some information about our ancestors. We had a geneolgy report, and passed on that information to Helen and Robert of Afternoon Tea Tours. Helen planned a tour to Dundee to see the neighborhoods where our ancestors lived and their burial sites.... More

Helen Fraser, experienced and knowledgeable guide and proud Edinburgh resident, picked us up in her comfortable car and drove us to Holyrood Park and then through the city to see its highlights and to view the distinctive castle from different perspectives. Then we headed out of town and stopped at an unusual Japanese garden at a gracious old country house,... More

We have just had a dull Wednesday afternoon turned into an adventure not to be forgotten. As a Christmas present we received an Afternoon Tea Tour. Unsure what to expect as this was new to us and not coming from another country (in fact from Bonnybridge, between Edinburgh and Glasgow), I put off booking. O how I wish I had... More

We had the best of times in and around Scotland with Helen, more than we ever expected! We found Helen on the internet and read the TripAdvisor reviews. She was quick to suggest an itinerary to match what we wanted to cover and see. She was so much fun, full of facts and surprises! She made our trip so much... More
