The Scottish Driver Guides are all accredited Blue Badge Guides, qualified to guide throughout the whole of Scotland. Our specialist knowledge enables us to create tours especially tailored to your own particular interests and to suggest accommodation to suit your taste and budget ranging from homely Bed & Breakfasts to luxurious hotels or castles. Tours can vary from a half or full day in cities such as Edinburgh or Glasgow to extended tours of any length. We are happy to provide a cost quote for your tour at the planning stage and delighted to meet you on arrival at the start of your holiday.

Included:

Driver Guiding Services: The services of your driver guide – generally available to you for eight hours per day (flexible).  Where relevant, their overnight expenses will be included in the tour quote.

Vehicle: All costs relating to the vehicle – fuel, insurance, parking etc. All rates quoted are per vehicle, not per person.

Insurance: The law requires those who carry paying passengers to have Private Hire or Hire and Reward Insurance and all our vehicles have this.  Some insurance policies say “social domestic and pleasure” and give cover for use “in connection with the policy holder’s business”. This can NOT be interpreted as cover for driver guiding. We will be happy to provide evidence of our insurance cover on request.

All of our driver guides are insured individually for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity.

Not included:

Guest Accommodation: This is not included unless by arrangement with the driver guide. We can make suggestions and organize this for you on request. 

Entrance Fees to visitor attractions, Ferries, Tolls: Not included unless by prior arrangement.

Gratuities: Gratuities are at clients’ discretion.

Travel Insurance: This is not included and we would advise you to arrange personal insurance cover before travelling.
