[b]Hi Fellow Travelers!

I'm very interested in taking a tour with a company called Across the Pond Tours. They look fantastic, but I'd love input from anyone else who may have utilized their services. What I like about this company is that IT IS NOT TRAVEL WITHIN A GROUP! You travel on your own (i.e., with a friend, spouse, family, whatever) and their prices are very reasonable. I'm considering doing the Stately Estates Tour (although my husband wants to do a golf & whisky tour aptly named, "A Long Drive and a Wee Dram".

Here's the link if anyone's interested...

Any input/feedback would be most welcome! Cheers! Abbey

3000 USD for 9 days of Scotland without airfare???

Did you win the lottery or what???

I could do the same tour for 1/4 of the price. I would eat the same food, see the same things. I would also sleep just as well in my bed in a hostel or a B&B as in a luxury hotel.

Mods, I hope this turn out to be spam. Taking that tour without a good reason is like burning money - and which sane non-billionare person does that?

Most definitely spam . . . The itinerary looks rubbish - Aberdeen, Elgin and St Andrews??? Hardly constitutes a tour of Scotland. I doubt that many will have "utilized their services".

Perhaps they know where we can download the Nav4all software.
