If you want to treat yourself to something special, I'd highly recommend booking a tour with Helen. She can customize the day (or days) according to your interests. Even though I'd traveled to Scotland many times, Helen took me to places I'd never seen before and would not have seen if I had booked the day with a large tour group. She is knowledgeable, personable and her love for Scotland is apparent. The day I spent with Helen was one of the highlights of my trip!

Helen did a fantastic job in planning and coordinating our Scotland vacation for my wife and me and two other couples. We accomplished everything we wanted to do including golf, hiking and visiting scotch distilleries. Helen also arranged the transportation, first class accommodations and wonderful meals! I would recommend Helen to anyone who wants a terrific tour of Scotland.

As I listen to Duncan Chisholm, a wonderful Scottish musician Helen (Afternoon Tea Tours) introduced us to, I must write a review of our experience with her. Thank goodness she is not a “tour company”. She is a native who desires to introduce travelers to a country that she deeply loves and knows a great deal about. You let her know your wishes and something about yourself and she will put together a day or two...or as many as you would like...and your time with her promises to be memorable. For us it included golf for my husband, a visit to St. Andrews and the beautiful town, a wonderful lunch in the country, an afternoon tea in a lovely manor home lodge, walking around town and visiting shops, a drive around Edinburgh and learning so much about the city and the land...and much more. We need to go back! Thank you so much, Helen, for your hospitality. If you’re visiting Scotland, I recommend you check out Afternoon Tea Tours.

Helen carefully planned every part of our journey, taking into account that we were traveling with our 6-year-old son and that this was our first trip to Scotland. She truly knows her stuff and kept us engaged during our one-day journey around Perthshire, pointing out landmarks and filling us in on interesting historical facts that we wouldn't have learned elsewhere. The waterfall at the Hermitage, the magnificent Queen's View, the unforgettable Blair Castle - all experiences that my family will cherish, thanks to Helen!

Without a doubt, Helen is one of the best guides we've ever had. She has a genuine talent for quickly understanding what you're passionate about and what you value from a tour. We honestly felt like part of her family for the entire day as we traveled around Edinburgh, Stirling, and the Trossachs. Scotland should be proud to have a cultural ambassador as thoughtful and dedicated as Helen. Don't hesitate to book something with her!
