Helen organised a personalised 4 day trip for me and it was just wonderful from start to finish. We started from Edinburgh, driving to Mallaig through Glencoe and Rannoch Moor up past Glenfinnan to Mallaig where we took the ferry over the sea to Skye for 3 days there. Helen knows that I love wildlife, so provided every opportunity for... More

This is my second vacation with Helen. After emailing her an overview of what I wanted to see and do in Scotland this trip, she planned out a full week of adventures. I appreciated the attention to details throughout the planning process. This time I wanted to walk (really, tramp) in the hills more. My trip was wonderful! As we... More

Couldn't post pics before - see BEGUINE REVIEW 5 STAR - extraordinary vacation with Helen as a warm , knowledgable and very caring guide who wants you to love Scotland as much as she does. And she achieves it. Not your bus tour quotidian experience when you book with Afternoon Tea Tours .

My wife and I had two lovely days with Helen, first to St. Andrews and second to Highland Perthshire. Both days weather forecast was cold and cloudy but the sun came out both days and weather was glorious, so first bit of advice is don't pay attention to weather forecast and be prepared either way. Helen is knowledgeable and eager... More

We had a great time with Helen for two days of touring. She is very knowledgeable and also passionate about Scotland. We saw a beautiful chapel, country home, castle, waterfall, wildlife. The tea was in a beautiful setting and everything you could hope for. We saw much more than we could ever have done on our own. We highly recommend... More

Helen planned and guided us on a very enjoyable day tour from Edinburgh through East Lothian. We had requested seeing a variety of sights and Helen delivered an excellent itinerary. She was easy to work with in the planning stage and accommodating to our requests. On the day of the tour, Helen guided us through an ambitious day of sightseeing... More

Helen is knowledgeable, personable, and passionate about Edinburgh! It was my daughter and my first time in Scotland and we only had two days to tour. I contacted Helen via email to discuss our plans first, great communication...she custom designed a tour for our tastes! It was wonderful despite the miserable weather (it rained the entire time;( ). But we... More

We visited Edinburgh in late February and had 2 days reserved with Helen. My wife had mentioned to Helen that we were interested in some historical aspects of Scotland, so she suggested a trip to Bannockburn and Sterling Castle on the 1st day which we thoroughly enjoyed. The scenery from the castle of the surrounding areas was breathtaking and the... More

Although we didn't have great weather my daughter and I had a lovely day with Helen. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and Scotland overall. She showed us beautiful areas, we did a fun, informative whisky tour and had a fantastic afternoon tea at a beautiful hotel that we wouldn't have found on our own.

Had the pleasure of a personal tour by Helen whilst on our 1st trip to Edinburgh. As we where only here for a few days, I wanted to try and see some of the places of interest that are not part of an organised tour. Helen tour was excellent, we viewed places off interest in East Lothian! Stopped of for... More
