Small Group tours of Scotland

My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland next June and are looking at small-group (less than 20 pp) tour groups, such as Kensington, Odysseys Unlmited, Lynott, Backroads Touring, etc. I've seen a couple of (older) awful reviews of Lynott, but can anyone attest to any o fthe other groups?

We'd like to spend 10-12 days seeing the sights and some off-the beaten path, insider stuff, but tour companies make me nervous. Our other (more expensive) option is a driver guide, but we'd miss the experience of other travelers.

Any opinions are welcome, and thanks!

Odysseys Unlimited is a fantastic group for small group travel for the over 60 generation. We have taken 5 trips with them and are hoping to go to Scotland in June with them if other people sign up. Great hotels and food, terrific guides and a comfortable schedule. And you meet very interesting people.

We will be in Scotland for 9 days the beginning of June and were also looking at small group tours. After a bit of research we decided to do time on our own in Edinburgh and Glasgow with some Rabbies tours; 2 day trips and one three day trip to the highlands. I have used Odysseys for a recent trip to South America and liked their tour. I'm going to India with them later this year. I think there are many good options in Scotland depending on your time and interest.

Natural Habitat Adventures has an excellent small-group tour of Scotland. They focus on nature sites as well as flora and fauna. There are also many places of cultural, geologic and historic interest.

Sorry, I didn't see any other options for fully escorted small group tours of Scotland. I would think that the forum administrator would delete (or not allow) the post if it wasn't permitted.

I expect it will be deleted very shortly Judy. The posts aren't manually approved before being posted, but they will be removed when they are reported by members as violating the guidelines here.

Ah, it's already gone.

Well, I was just trying to be helpful. I suppose that it's not outside of the rules if one of my travelers posts?

Advertising isn't allowed. If any post reads like its an advert for a company it will probably be taken down.

This thread began in 2013 and the last post, until today was June last year. Can we not let it rest in peace now?
