Borders Journeys welcomes you to Scotland! There is no better year to visit and explore Scotland than in the year that we celebrate Homecoming Scotland 2014, a year long celebration of all things Scottish.
Are you looking for a tour company with exceptional local knowledge and your interests at heart? Look no further.
Borders Journeys provides friendly private and small group sightseeing tours of Scotland.
We recognise that for many of you this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity and our emphasis is upon making your time in Scotland an experience you'll always remember.
Our wide range of tours are a wonderful way to discover the beauty, history and culture of Scotland. You can explore the winding lanes and fascinating histories of historic towns, walk the grounds and ornate rooms of fairy-tale castles or simply marvel at the magnificence of Scotland's lochs, mountains and coastlines. Each tour is led by a knowledgeable and experienced local tour guide with expert local knowledge, who will take you off the beaten track to the roads less travelled. In such out of the way places you'll discover beautiful local crafts, including traditional woollen and cashmere products, before resting your feet and enjoying home baking and hospitality at village tea rooms.
We know you want to spend your time sightseeing rather than just travelling, so we make sure to stop regularly for refreshments and photographs.
All of our scheduled tours are available for private hire with a departure from a place of your choice. If you would like us to create a private tour for you, we will be happy to offer you our advice and plan the tour around your requirements so that we can build the perfect tour for you.
City and Walking Tours
Our half-day and full-day city walking or minibus tours of Edinburgh and Glasgow are a wonderful way to explore these fascinating cities while learning about their tumultuous histories. We'll introduce you to the thriving cultural life of these vibrant cities, while telling you tales of former inhabitants whose names are etched in their pasts.
Want to walk in the footsteps of your ancestors?
Borders Journeys will design a tailor-made ancestral tour especially for you, taking you on a journey of discovery where you'll connect with your Scottish ancestors by walking in their footsteps. Your ancestors will be brought to life when you learn about the people, places and traditions connected with them. By the end of the tour you'll have gained a real insight into your ancestral heritage and where you came from, which you can share with present and future generations.
