QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • How many days do I need in Scotland?

    While you can hit the main city spots in around five days, we recommend 10-14 days to explore the Highlands and islands to their fullest. For more information, check out our guide on how many days to spend in Scotland.

  • What is the best way to travel to Scotland?

    Unless you are traveling from the UK, the best way to travel to Scotland is to fly into Edinburgh, Glasgow, or Inverness. There are ferries from Northern Ireland and frequent trains from England, with ferries between Scotland and mainland Europe expected to resume next year.

  • Is Scotland expensive to visit?

    As with a lot of countries, it is all about where you visit. As a capital city, Edinburgh can be quite expensive, but like most cities around the world, you can easily find cheaper places to stay and eat. On the islands, there is import costs from the mainland to consider, which does hike up prices. Still Scotland is pretty affordable , compared to other countries in the UK.

  • Which Scottish tours should I go on?

    Realistically, this depends on your main interests, but we would recommend tours that take you out of the main cities to explore rural Scotland, the Highlands, and the islands. Here, you can learn more about Scottish history and culture, while soaking up the natural beauty that makes this country so special.
