  • Hugh has been phenomenal! We are having the time of our lives
    [Oct 17th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We had wonderful time in Scotland!! It was everything we had hoped for and more . Totally was worth the wait. The absolute best part was having Scott as our tour guide. We can't say enough about the huge contribution he made to our experience perfect . He was a great story teller, knowledgable historian, and an authentic Scotsman. He made us laugh, sing(!! ) and feel his passion. He was also very professional. The car was immaculate. He handled all our luggage at all stops and made sure we always know what to do and where to meet and what was coming for the day ahead. He was especially accommodating; really reading the crowd and being flexible enough to suit our special needs. I also loved that at every stop he had a book of Outlander pictures that corresponded to that location. He knew how things were shot and the directions the actors moved for filming. He gave us photo ops aplenty, even knowing the best backdrops to take pics pics in front of. I learned so much more than I expected to learn about Outlander, Scottish history, Scottish folklore and the Scottish way of life. He was excellent in every way.
    [Sept 19th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Hi, Kathie. I’m happy to report back to you about our Scotland trip. Let me start by saying that it was a dream come true! We had a fabulous time and great weather. The itinerary covered the real highlights of the books and show, I loved that. Our guide, Scott Guthrie, was phenomenal, and really made the trip enjoyable for everyone. He was very knowledgeable about Scottish and Outlander history. He was an excellent story teller. He was an excellent driver. He was also very kind and accommodating to us, as he realized that our group needed less strenuous activities, as well as assistance in and out of his vehicle. He also handled our luggage nicely. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Scott was! Keep him! I also loved the presentation by Gillebride MacMillan. He was delightful, and this was a highlight for me. The hotel in Aberfeldy was excellent, with a lift!, and great restaurant. Another terrific highlight was the costume experience! How unique and fun, we all loved it. This was very special. The dinner show experience on the last night was wonderful, too, a very nice way to end the trip. Everyone we interacted with was very welcoming and friendly. The Scottish people were lovely!
    [Sept 19th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I wanted to send an email letting you know how very much I enjoyed the Outlander Immersion Tour! Dave was PHENOMENAL! He is extremely knowledgeable, full of humor, and a completely lovely Scotsman. Above all, the care he took to ensuring the best experience for his guests was outstanding. I would absolutely come back for another tour with Dave.
    [August 8th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I certainly will keep you in mind when anyone mentions visiting Scotland. Our tour was very special—Dave Fyfe was great and I loved how small our group was—and I’ll remember it always. Now, if I can just get my husband to take me back for more Outlander!
    [August 8th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I had a great time on the tour even though my luggage was missing for the first 48 hours, I finally got it, thanks to Laura Moon. The meals were excellent and surprisingly creative and varied. Highlights: "Gwyllyn the Bard", Craig na Dun, Lally Broche, Clava Cairns, Gleneig Ferry, Costumes, the Highlands! But frankly, Laura Moon made everything better. She was excellent! I could sit in a car all day and listen to her tell stories. She handled everyone with good humor and tolerance even when we wanted to go rogue a couple of times. I needed more time in Edinburgh, there's so much more to explore there. I will go back, and soon!
    [June 27th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Just wanted to say thank you! The trip was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed every minute of it. And I cannot say enough wonderful things about Scott, he added so many personal moments to the trip. He is a treasure! He truly went above and beyond! Thanks again!
    [June 13th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Ian was outstanding in dealing with us and the bnbs were excellent choices.
    [May 16th, 2022 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • What a great tour!!!!
    Hugh was absolutely the best tour guide- more of an ambassador if you ask me!
    Kathie- if you want to use me as satisfied customer- I’ll be glad to give my opinion to anyone!
    [September 20th, 2021 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I want to thank you and Hugh for a tremendous tour of all the Outlander sites and just getting to know the country of Scotland. It was a wonderful trip and we enjoyed so much sharing it with [our tour companions]. They were the perfect traveling companions with all their enthusiasm and their family ties to Scotland. I hope Scotland knows what a gold mine of tourism they have with the Outlander series because it is what brought us to sign up for your tour. My Italian family roots are deep into Italy but I want to be an honorary Scot because of Outlander!
    Thank you again. Both you and Hugh provided us with a tremendous, professional and extraordinary tour. We will never forget it.

    Keep doing what you’re doing because your tours are something special and exceptional. It was worth all those anxiety-producing 3 COVID tests, jet lag, long plane flights, hours waiting for our flight connections and on and on. It was worth it all!!!!
    [September 20th, 2021 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We had a FANTASTIC time on our trip! I felt we really lucked out with the group we had, and Scott was an excellent guide. While the itinerary may appear jam packed and hard to fit everything in, I never felt rushed at a site. The morning we went went Culloden was very misty so visibility was not the greatest (which we all expected at least a few misty days) but Scott doubled back at the end of the day so we could see Culloden after the mist lifted. It was honestly one of the best trips I've ever been on.
    [September 6th, 2021 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • The tour was more than I could have dreamed of. Scott was an amazing, kind, caring and very patient and knowledgeable guide. Very appreciative to all he did.
    Thank you for your patience and for putting together such an amazing tour.
    I loved every minute of it.
    [September 6th, 2021 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Thank You! Just wanted to thank you for the most wonderful experience in Scotland! Every event,every place visited and our wonderful guide, Hugh Allison were fabulous. Also, having a private audience with Gillebride MacMillan was exceptional.
    [October 1st, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Please use Scott Guthrie as much as you can -- he is worth his weight in gold. All of us enjoyed him and he was so knowledgeable and took such good care of us.
    [July 9th, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Dear Kathie, I can't even begin to tell you what a sensational time I had on this tour! Whenever I look at a picture on my phone, I recapture the wonder and awe I experienced at that particular site--and the tour was FILLED with incredible sites and so many of those enchanting moments.
    #1 - Our tour guide, Scott, was simply tremendous--so accommodating, so patient, so knowledgeable, so witty, the list could go on forever. His stories about the history of Scotland--the political intrigue, the love triangles of the royals, the plight of the common people--made everything come alive for me.
    #2 - The size of the tour was absolutely perfect. Traveling with only 6 other people made every experience noteworthy for its intimacy and personal touch. We had such a lovely group of travelers as well--Rosemary & Carol, Andy and Mary, Deb & Chelsea. The whole gang shared their perspectives on Outlander as it pertained to each of our stops. Even though I was the only one who came solo, I immediately felt welcome and at ease.
    #3 - The stops on the tour made my experience with both the novels and the series that much more magical. I actually went back and watched individual episodes that tied into the places we had visited, and I reread the first book before and during my time in Scotland. Everything now is so much richer and so much more powerful! Walking around the filming sites for Castle Leoch, Lallybroch, & Craigh na Dunn were just a few of the spectacular highlights of this trip.
    #4 - Scotland is a breathtaking country; it is comprised of such an amazing blend of old and new. Although I wasn't a big fan of Glasgow (too much like NYC for me), Inverness and Edinburgh stole my heart. The journey through the Highlands was, without a doubt, my favorite. The air was so pure, the sky so blue, the mountains awash with heather. (I'm not sure, but I think I left a part of my soul there because of that resplendence.) The day that we visited the Church of St. Kilda and the Isle of Skye was a perfect 10 for me.
    #5 - I'm sure that I could go on and on about so many other details--like our wonderful lunch stops and our costume parade down the streets of Edinburgh on the final day--but suffice it to say that this was the trip of a lifetime for me, and I am so grateful that I found your website, Kathie, and booked this tour. I'm already checking out your Outlander Redoux for next summer !!!!!
    [July 9th, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Every time I wear the Outlander bracelet it reminds me of the adventure of a lifetime that Jimmy and I had on your Outlander Immersion Tour! Jimmy and I both agree that the tour exceeded our highest expectations and that we would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Every bit of the tour was expertly planned and we are so thankful for your attention to detail and phenomenal choice of tour guide! Laura was absolutely amazing. She was our favorite part of the trip and we are so thankful for all of her kindness, wisdom and humor! We wouldn’t have wanted our experience to go any differently and we can’t thank you enough for coordinating the perfect experience.
    [June 25th, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Selling this Scotland tour as an Outlander tour is really selling it short. I for one had never watched a single episode of Outlander but my wife is a huge fan and along with the other three women on the tour, they helped me understand why a location was significant to the program. For me though it was not about some TV show, but rather it was an excellent way to see the back roads of Scotland. We went where the big coaches could never go, saw country-side that those tourist never dreamed of seeing and sites that were far off the big-group itineraries. Couple this with the excellent guides (Dave & Suzy), good hotels, food and daily activities and this was by far my best vacation. I have already recommended this tour to many friends and co-workers. Thanks Kathy for a trip of a lifetime!
    [June 11th, 2019 Outlander Redoux Tour]

  • Thank you, Kathie, for putting together such a great tour with Hugh! We loved seeing all the natural beauty and historical places, along with hearing the history and lore of the area. It was so informational and entertaining! Hugh is truly amazing! I was so impressed by his ability to manage such a diverse group of people while also managing to change our itinerary on the fly when weather or facility issues took a turn for the worse. And always with a cheery attitude! It was a joy traveling with Hugh and I hope to tour again with him in the future.
    [Sept 3rd, 2019 Outlander Redoux Tour]

  • I can't even begin to tell you what a thrilling experience we all had in Scotland. It was the best trip EVER! It was absolutely everything I had hoped for as an Outlander fan, and it went well beyond expectations. The lodging was great, the excursions with Ian were fabulous and the memories we made are priceless. We all fell in love with Scotland! Jan and I are already discussing Scotland, Round 2: The Redoux tour! Thank you so much for putting together an agenda that checked all the boxes for an Obsessenach such as myself.
    [May 7th, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Kathie, it was fabulous, from beginning to end. Well-organized, comfortable, great service, great food, Hugh, the comfortable van, our fellow travelers – just spectacular. Definitely exceeded my expectations.
    [April 23rd, 2019 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Dear Kathie, Just wanted to say thank you for the Outlander tour you created. As you well know, the star of the tour is Hugh. His ability to lead a group of highly diverse adults is phenomenal, and his depth of knowledge matches that as well. I thought the tour was organized quite well ~ I appreciated the time to get acclimated to jet lag while exploring Glasgow. I thought all three B & B locations were very nice. While I am not a fan of B & Bs generally, all were clean, comfortable, and spacious, and the breakfasts were delicious. All of the B & B staff members were wonderfully accommodating. I especially appreciated the B & Bs that had an area where you could order dinner because after a long day of travel, sometimes it’s nice just to stay in. I really loved all of the restaurants you chose for our group dinners. The food and service could not have been more amazingly wonderful.

    Because of this practically perfect tour, I have memories and knowledge that I will carry with me forever.

    Many thanks, and congratulations on a fantastic adventure for all of us.
    [October 9th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Dear Kathie, I was on the recent Outlander Tour in Scotland from the 25th of September to the 3rd of October with Hugh Allison. I just wanted to let you know that it was an amazing experience. When I was booking it I was really annoyed that I had to book it through the United States to join a tour from Australia to travel in Scotland as it seemed crazy to not be able to work directly with them but I am so glad I went through your company. All the details you included far exceeded anything I could possibly have done without you, the accommodation, the restaurant choices and the slick organization of it were all exemplary. As for Hugh, he is the most knowledgeable and interesting tour operator I have ever had the pleasure to travel with. There were so many extra tidbits of information he generously shared with us all and he went far above and beyond what he was required to do in order to make the experience a positive and memorable one. I have recommended you both to everyone on my social media lists and I hope to travel through Scotland again in the near future. Hugh mentioned a follow up tour based on the Outlander one we just did which is on my bucket list. Big thanks to you.

    [September 25th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

    Thanks to you and Hugh for organizing such a full, fun and adventurous tour! Your pre-trip assistance and communications were always spot on (or should I say Scot on?)!
    Our time with Hugh was sheer delight! I will traverse Scotland with him again in the future and have already passed on your tour info to some interested parties. With his sunny disposition, deep knowledge and wit, and his efforts to go the extra mile for his tourers, it was a blast to hop in the van each morning!
    We enjoyed our fellow travelers, and I know for sure that none of us could have imagined a more spectacular trip, a trip of a lifetime for me personally. I’m back at Pipers Tryst tonight before I head home tomorrow. Can we go one more round?!
    But on a final note... I can’t wait to see your 2020 dates for the redo tour!
    Best to you, and thanks again for offering such a great experience through Celtic Time and Inverness Tours.
    [August 28th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Just wanted to let you know that my Scotland trip was great! You organized it perfectly, not a misstep or problem in any way. You even orchestrated perfect weather! (We would have been disappointed if it hadn’t rained a little, but the days it needed to be dry it was!) Hugh was an exceptional guide. Knowledgeable, prompt, easy going, funny, can’t say enough positive about him. When he had extra time, he even took us on “mini adventures” which added to the fun.
    you and Hugh did an excellent job organizing and guiding my trip to Scotland. Most group trips have a hiccup or two, but this trip was flawless. Thanks so much!
    [September 25th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • What a fantastic trip. My friend and I took the Outlander Immersion tour Sept. 11 to l9. We wanted to celebrate our mutual BD together as she lives in Texas and I in Maryland. Kathie was just so great. She had someone meet us at the airport in Glasgow to give us directions and a cab to our first hotel. She also had a BD cake and champagne given to us at one of restaurants on our tour, She thought of everything and we were much appreciative. Our tour was just as fantastic, We had a wonderful tour guide, Dave Fyfe, Dave was very knowledgable and professional and the enthusiasm for his country was outstanding. He made us feel very comfortable and was so helpful with all our questions or requests. He just had an outstanding personality and we were lucky to have him. We hope to come to Scotland another time to visit other places in that beautiful country. I certainly rate this trip a #5.
    [Sept 11th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Kathie, the tour was absolutely fantastic! Dave Fife was so awesome; he was extremely helpful, so knowledgeable about Scotland's history and Outlander and has a great sense of humor. It was a dream come true, thank you for everything!
    [Sept 11th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I had to wait a few days for my fuzzy jet lagged head to clear before I emailed you to express to you how wonderful my trip to Scotland was!!
    You covered every detail so thoroughly that I was absolutely comfortable traveling there by myself. The accommodations were in every case the best. The extra's like the Hop on Hop Off pass and The Heritage Pass were a welcome bonus. The included dinners were wonderful as well! But the best part hands down was spending six wonderful days with Hugh Allison touring all the Outlander sites and being able to hear him share his vast knowledge of Outlander and Scotland. He is a gentlemen and a scholar and so engaging and charming. The consummate professional!! ... For me it was the trip of a lifetime and I want to go back tomorrow! So thank you Kathie for your expertise. My tour mates were so wonderful and I have made 6 new friends for life. I will not hesitate to recommend It's Celtic Time and Hugh Allison to friends planning to go to Scotland.
    [August 28th, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I returned here full of wonderful pictures and impressions which will certainly stay with me for the rest of my life! And, of course, I was telling everybody here about this fantastic trip!
    I think it's wonderful that you have worked out a 'Outlander Redoux' and I am pretty sure that I will participate in one of the tours. As to your question whether there is anything which could be improved, I am very sorry, but...there simply isn't. The places we were staying were great (although I do have to admit that in the beginning I was kind of apprehensive about staying in a b&b, which I normally don't...), the members of the group were very nice, I absolutely fell in love with the Scottish Highlands and, of course, it is needless to say that Hugh is by far the best guide I have ever had. So - sorry, but nothing there to improve, just continue in the same manner.
    [July 3rd, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We cannot thank you enough! We had the most wonderful time, perhaps the best vacation we’ve ever had as a family.
    All 4 of us thought the tour with Scott (from Inverness Tours) was incredible. It did wind up being a private day with just the four of us which was a real treat, and I am so glad it worked out that way. My husband and I loved it — the teenagers (who say they don’t like history) LOVED “all the stories” (which of course IS history.)
    We are all getting our feet back under us slowly, but look at photos or talk about our trip almost daily. Thank you again for everything, you helped get us organized and your help with the timing was wonderful, we couldn’t have done it without you!
    [August 2nd, 2018 Family of Four Scotland Tour]

  • WOW, what a great time we had in Scotland... it was nice to meet you for a minute but if we had met you at the end, you would have heard us rant and rave about what an AMAZING job you have done in setting up this experience. Everything was wonderful and we had a great time but I cannot even express how wonderful Ian was as a driver and guide.... we all had a great time and he even helped us with hints about how to use our phones for photos. I would be happy to recommend this tour, you and Ian anytime.... and I will when asked by friends and family.
    [July 31, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I have been wanting to write about the marvelous Outlander tour. ... The tour is so well organized and full of activities—just the right amount. The group size makes it work and the van was very comfortable. I have been on the big bus tours and smaller Rick Steves Ireland tour. It was a joy to explore and have lovely lunches and dinners with a small group. ... Aberfeldy was awesome and close to town. That was a plus for me. At the end of the day I enjoy a short walk to dinner and the possibility of live traditional music. ... Ian was beyond terrific ... Thanks for putting together a wonderful tour and for your support throughout the process. I feel like I made a new Colorado friend! I will highly recommend you and your company.
    [May 22, 2018 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Fabulous, Fabulous trip! The trip was absolutely marvelous and exceeded my very lofty expectations! Dave Fyfe was a dream combo of testosterone (for my hubby) playful Highlander (for us ladies), historian, singer, dancer, story-teller, nimble driver, local site and tidbit expert. He was THE BEST GUIDE IMAGINABLE.
    [September 21st, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We feel so lucky to have had Laura. She was AMAZING! She always got us to places before the crowd somehow, she had lots of stories, she arranged for great restaurants, set a good tone and pace. We also lucked out with our group. We all really enjoyed each other.
    [September 7th, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We had a great time and I would definitely do it again through your tours! We visited so many sights, can’t think of any we missed as far as outlander goes and the Highlands are SO beautiful. We enjoyed the other couples on our trip immensely. Laura Moon was fantastic! She told stories, was always upbeat and we had several perks as her husband is a re-enactor. And one of the best things is her uncanny ability to get us to all the sites BEFORE the tour buses pulled in. That was great! The Bard was wonderful, we could have listened to him speak for hours more. A lovely man and very funny and knowledgeable. Scotland is a beautiful place and I hope to go again!
    [September 7th, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Just a note to tell you what a wonderful time we had on this tour! Hugh was the best at his job and we totally fell in love with Scotland! My husband was a little apprehensive at first but absolutely loved it because of Hugh and his ability to share his love of Scotland! Thank you so much for all your helpful advice on how to pack. We were gone 3 weeks with just a carry on and a mini bag...we did it!! Again...great job! Thanks!
    [August 24, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • The trip was wonderful; Laura Moon was spectacular. She brought Scotland to life for us.
    [July 20, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • THANK YOU! We all had a wonderful trip and it really felt seamless! I really appreciated how everything was planned out for us, instructions were clear, and everything was good to go! Ian was a great guide and we had a lot of fun with him!

    I'm trying to reflect on any feedback. It really was one of the best trips I have been on! Thanks so much! I would love to do the part 2, but I will have to wait at least a few years!
    [June 22, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I just wanted to thank you for coordinating such an incredible tour for us!
    It really was amazing. Ian was so knowledgeable and quite entertaining!! He really did a fantastic job explaining everything and telling stories. His great sense of humor kept us all laughing.
    I have to say this was one of, if not the best vacation I’ve had. I highly recommend this tour, and hope to someday work with you again in the future.
    [June 22, 2017 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Martha wrote me in July of 2015 to start planning a tour for 11 people - her and her sisters and her nieces. Martha, Hugh Allison (from Inverness Tours) and I worked together to create a tour for Martha. This is her response when she returned:
    Well, I got a fantastic deal!! The bus and driver were top notch....plenty of room, very comfortable. All the hotels were super nice. And then Hugh....couldn't possibly be anyone better than Hugh! Thank you for all of your hours of planning and all the detail work. ... It was an amazing trip that everyone will be talking about for years!!

    So glad I found you!!
    [July 16, 2017 Custom Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Kathie - I would not even consider going to Ireland and/or Scotland without getting you involved! The trip Kathy and I took was so effortless and so very enjoyable, I can't imagine letting anyone else handle the arrangements.
    [May 21, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • The Scottish Highlands were stunningly beautiful in July when I traveled there this year with a small group (7 people plus one amazing guide) on the Outlander Immersion tour. Seeing the Outlander film locations was "frosting on the cake." Overall, it was one of the best trips I have ever taken!
    [July 29, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Your help with our trip to Ireland and the Outlander Immersion tour was beyond expectations. We could not have had a more wonderful time. Thank your for your hard work and care. We cannot thank you enough.
    [June 25, 2016 Ireland & Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • You've done a wonderful job with this tour...everyone in the group really "fits" and gets along nicely...I've definitely met some new friends and I think the pace is perfect as Ian has allowed us a wee bit of time to shop along the way too.
    [May 21, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • You take such good care of us! Thank you. I still regret I will not meet you in person. But, each day, I will be thinking “this is good because Kathie takes such good care of us!” Of course I will recommend you to others.
    [June 12, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • We are delighted with the tour and would recommend it to anyone. Five stars!
    [June 12, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • I can't believe all that you are doing. You amaze me! Thank you for all your great information and constant watching out for us.
    I tell everyone I know about you and your company. I only hope some will heed our suggestions.
    [June 25, 2016 Ireland & Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • Kathie: I received a very nice letter (yes, he took the time to write an actual letter) from a gentleman who elected to go on the Outlander Immersion tour with his daughter and her friends. He said I could use his text on my website. He wrote:

    He wrote: The Outlander Immersion Tour you organized in concert with Hugh Allison was spectacular. Hugh is a highly Professional tour Guide and knowledgeable historian. He conducted the most interesting and exciting tour I have ever been on. His knowledge of Scotland and its history was phenomenal. His wit and charm made every day and exciting, entertaining journey. He took us to places that large tours would not be able to accommodate. Also, each day he found a delightful local restaurant to satisfy our mid-day dining pleasure. Some of these restaurants would not be able to accommodate a large tour.

    The trip was filled with the most varied things that it would be hard not to satisfy most tourists. As a bonus, everyone on the tour got along beautifully which made our time in Scotland so special. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are considering a return trip in a couple of years.
    [Oct 30, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • "Kathie thank you for everything, you are doing a fantastic job and I can just sit back and enjoy this trip. THANKS"

  • Thank you again for all of your help. I know that were are a high maintenance group, and all of your help is truly appreciated."
    [May 9, 2016 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • "You have done a great job with this itinerary, [my wife] will love it. I am also excited by the photos of Scotland included with your picture of the bag - really looking forward to this trip for myself and [my wife]. Thanks again. ...
    Once again, thank you for your efforts here, this will really be a special adventure."
    [Oct 8, 2015 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • "A day doesn't go by that I don't think back and smile remembering the beautiful beyond words sights, sounds of Scotland. Good company made it that more memorable. Thank you all!!!"
    [July 10, 2015 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • "Didn't we see such truly awesome sights? I will never forget them, nor our very special tour together. It was truly a dream come true."
    [July 10, 2015 Outlander Immersion Tour]

  • "I should have added that the key thing you offered was personal communication, care and support!"

  • "Thanks as ever- we are having a great time and you are getting high marks from everyone!"

  • "You really are good at this and clearly this is your passion. Made me want to hop on a plane straight away."

  • "Fabulous information you have supplied. Thank you."

  • From a client who brought is family to the US: "We would like to thank you for the itinerary you had put together for us. Everything went off very well. The kids too had a great time. Hotels and the tours were great.
    Special mention on the Spiderman show which was fantastic - the seats were a great selection.
    We would be happy to recommend you to any of our friends planning a trip to the US.
    Many people were amazed that we had managed to cover the depth and breadth of the vast US with your help.

    It was time well spent planning with you."
