“This type of tour was the first of its kind for us. We were going to Europe/Scotland for the first time, and were nervous as first time visitors we would make those planning mistakes every international traveler worries about.
I then found Purple Heather Scottish Tours and read about the unique offerings and planning services they provide ; more so, they completely customize your vacation with some intial input on what you are looking to do on your trip. My husband is a golf fanatic, so they arranged everything from transportation to the course, the left handed clubs to t times for a few courses for him, and for me, I wanted to see castles and history – Jeff from Purple Heather took me on some castle tours while my husband golfed… what an experience to have your own planner, guide and driver all in one!
Ive never experienced anything like it, and what a way to travel! – we were able to utilize thier knowledge of the country and venues to craft a week long itinerary for just for us. An experience like this will change the way you want to travel. At the end of the trip, it felt like we left with a friend in Scotland. We are already planning our second trip with them for 2021.”
“The tour guide gave my family a wonderful experience with a full day of going to Bannockburn, Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Dunfermline Abbey and Culross. We felt like he was an old friend by the end of the day and his knowledge about everywhere we went was amazing.”
“My wife and I just returned from a great 3 week trip to Scotland, through Purple Heather Scottish Tours. This trip was originally planned for April 2020, but was postponed twice due to Covid. That meant that Jeff had to organize and plan our trip 3 times.
Jeff is a true travel professional who has drove all through Europe in his career with the large coaches, but now focusses on smaller, more intimate excursions in his native Scotland. In addition to booking all of our B&B’s, meals, excursions, etc., Jeff served as our driver and did a superb job telling us about the history of Scotland and attending to our every need.
Jeff will tailor your trip to whatever you want to do and see, and he is a stickler for planning details that only a local would think about.”
