So this was an interesting experience of two halves really. Imagine balancing your food, wine and cup of tea whilst travelling over cobbled streets in a very old bus with bad suspension. It certainly made for a bit of fun, although we were relieved that none of our food or drink ended up all over us like some of the other passengers. The cakes were absolutely fresh and scrumptious; the curly sandwiches and appetisers sadly quite the opposite, so they were fast abandoned in favour of the sweeter treats. There was no tour guide, which we were a bit disappointed about, and the service was not the best - almost comical. But it was a pleasurable way to spend 90 minutes, especially if you like juggling your drinks!

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.
