Helen's love and knowledge of her country shines through every detail of her fantastic tours. My mother and I were treated to a day trip with Helen's Afternoon Tea Tours by my brother. After we had both viewed her delightful website, we chose a day in the Lowlands of Scotland as we both were keen to see Roslyn Chapel and... More

I am so glad that I found Helen's Afternoon Tea Tours on Trip Advisor before my trip to Scotland. I sent her an email asking for a day that we could do a tour, and what may be involved. She responded very promptly with a good day, and asked for more information about myself and my friends so that she... More

My sister and I had an amazing day with Helen, one of the highlights of our trip to Scotland! Everything was so well planned and organized and a welcome break for us! We would never have had the chance to see this beautiful area with someone who lives here and was so willing to share.

For our first trip to Scotland from the US, we decided to make Edinburgh our home base. We were introduced to Helen Fraser and "Afternoon Tea Tours" by a friend who had visited Scotland some years ago and had made two day trips with Helen. After exchanging a few e-mails in which in which Helen got a sense of what... More

I had the pleasure of spending 2 wonderful days touring the area of Edinburgh and the lower Highlands area near Perthshire. I was visiting Edinburgh for a conference but chose to travel over 3 days earlier than the conference start. This way I could tour and see the hilly areas around the city as once the conference started, I would... More

Helen organised a personalised 4 day trip for me and it was just wonderful from start to finish. We started from Edinburgh, driving to Mallaig through Glencoe and Rannoch Moor up past Glenfinnan to Mallaig where we took the ferry over the sea to Skye for 3 days there. Helen knows that I love wildlife, so provided every opportunity for... More

This is my second vacation with Helen. After emailing her an overview of what I wanted to see and do in Scotland this trip, she planned out a full week of adventures. I appreciated the attention to details throughout the planning process. This time I wanted to walk (really, tramp) in the hills more. My trip was wonderful! As we... More

Couldn't post pics before - see BEGUINE REVIEW 5 STAR - extraordinary vacation with Helen as a warm , knowledgable and very caring guide who wants you to love Scotland as much as she does. And she achieves it. Not your bus tour quotidian experience when you book with Afternoon Tea Tours .

My wife and I had two lovely days with Helen, first to St. Andrews and second to Highland Perthshire. Both days weather forecast was cold and cloudy but the sun came out both days and weather was glorious, so first bit of advice is don't pay attention to weather forecast and be prepared either way. Helen is knowledgeable and eager... More

We had a great time with Helen for two days of touring. She is very knowledgeable and also passionate about Scotland. We saw a beautiful chapel, country home, castle, waterfall, wildlife. The tea was in a beautiful setting and everything you could hope for. We saw much more than we could ever have done on our own. We highly recommend... More
