Want to get the family together in style? Our small-group trips are perfect for bringing everyone together to make memories that last generations. Here is our selection of the best group tours to take with your family.

Before we get started, it’s worth noting that our trips have a minimum age requirement of 25, so these itineraries are aimed at grown-up families. If you want a trip with younger travellers, you’ll need to book a private trip – you can have the exact same itinerary, you just need to chat to our team first!

Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands by Train

Fond memories of travelling by train as a kid? This trip will get you very nostalgic, as we explore the most beautiful corners of Scotland via some of the UK’s most stunning rail routes. We’ll actually start in London, taking the sleeper train north to Fort William, waking up to private cabin views of the rugged Scottish countryside. In Fort William you’ll get an amazing whisky-tasting experience – big selling point for the dads out there – before embarking on a trip to Mallaig the next morning. This isn’t any old journey, however, as we hop onboard the charming old Jacobite steam train, immortalised as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies. We’ll cross the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct on our journey west, which is full of spectacular views of mountains, forests and lochs. We’ll explore the Isle of Skye, Inverness and the Cairngorms National Park before eventually rounding off the trip in the capital, Edinburgh. Who’s having haggis and who’s going for the deep fried Mars bar, then?
