We are based on the Isle of Skye. We offer a wide range of value for money, small group, guided tours throughout Scotland. We constantly update and improve our tour programme, we always try to do a bit better and we respond positively to customer feedback. Time off the bus is important and we stop and explore at every opportunity.
Our guides are native Scots and they love a good story, it’s in their blood. They are a friendly approachable bunch, sometimes funny and always informative. We have experience in history, clan history, geography and geology. Our principal guide on Skye is Bill. On extented tours from Edinburgh you will meet Nory. James and Danny look after larger private groups. They have many years of experience and their flexible approach helps to make each tour relaxed and they will work hard to make your tour special. After all, it may be a long time before you pass this way again!
We take you on a real journey. Our tours are the best way to see and learn about Scotland in a relaxed and informal way. You will be with other travellers from around the world. People of all ages and backgrounds book tours with Real Scottish Journeys and many lasting friendships have been formed over the years. There are as many stops as possible throughout the day, with short walks to explore and experience special places for yourself. On extended tours we may walk for up to two hours.
All our tour prices do not include any accommodation costs. This allows you to choose the type of accommodation that best suits you. We recommend great value award winning hostels and cosy B&B’s that are locally owned and run. For your evening meal, we will direct you to the nearest pub or restaurant. If you are self catering in a hostel, there will be plenty of opportunity to buy food.
Tourism is important to the highland economy. We think it is important that the money that you spend stays local. We always try to support locally owned and run shops hostels pubs restaurants and B&B’s. This helps sustain small communities in the Highlands. By touring as group this also helps to reduce the number of vehicles on the road and carbon emissions. We try to minimise the amount of written material that we produce and recycle when possible.
