Booking a Vehicle For Your Tour

For larger groups of 9 – 53 passengers we can provide minibuses or coaches for your tour.

Please advise us of your vehicle requirements, along with the number passengers on your tour.


Booking Venue Entrance Tickets for Your Tour

STGA provide the easiest way to arrange entrance tickets for your group to all Historic Scotland properties. This includes Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Urquhart Castle, Huntley Castle, and many more. See here for full list.

We are the most convenient way of booking these tickets, as your guide will have the required tickets ready at hand on your tour.


Child Car Seat Hire for Your Tour

For driver-guided tours, children must use a child car seat until they are 12 years old or at least 135cm (4′ 51⁄2“), whichever comes first. Learn more about this law.

When making your booking, please inform us of your requirements for a child car seat –  your child’s height and/or weight.
