So, the obvious question is, "What's the catch?"

Put simply, we work on a TIPS-ONLY basis. We saw lots of apathy in the Scottish tour industry, and wanted to offer an alternative. This allows YOU to decide how much the tour is worth, rather than being dictated to. As soon as the other tour companies have your money, it makes no difference whether they deliver a great tour to you or not.

We're handing the power back to you, the customer, and this guarantees the highest quality of tour possible. We believe that if money is given; it should be in direct proportion to the quality of the tour, and the level of customer service you feel has been provided. No catch!
