When we set up Stravaigin, we realised the importance of offering you something different. Our individuality and our personal touches are what make us such a popular choice with customers worldwide, and it’s why we have people returning to us again and again.
Here at Stravaigin we pride ourselves on providing you with customised tours and private guided tours of Scotland. To give you the ultimate experience in our remarkable country, Stravaigin can create, just for you, unique, customised, personal and private itineraries tailored to your exact requirements and budget. Each tour is meticulously planned and jointly created with you, our clients, to ensure the best possible experience for your vacation in Scotland. Not only that, but unlike other companies out there, we offer a genuine door to door service. No travelling or extra cost to get to us. This is also a welcome bonus for you as you’ve probably heard about our weather! We really do pride ourselves on going that extra mile for you, so whichever tour you decide to choose, our unique approach will leave you heading home with the warmest of memories.
Whether it’s a Whisky Tour of Scotland’s famous distilleries, a day tour or a week long ancestral or historical tour, we will create the perfect itinerary for you. All of our itineraries are very flexible so even when you are out on the road we can alter your itinerary at a moment’s notice. If you suddenly decide to stay a bit longer at one place or a bit less at another, Stravaigin aims only to please and will make sure that your needs are met. Scotland has so many interesting and beautiful places to visit, we will always have something up our sleeve to surprise you with too! We can even organise to have your very own Bag Piper pipe for you at a special location or event.
Our tour guides are all friendly, full of character, knowledgeable and professional, and will look after every aspect of your requirements while you are touring Scotland. We will source and can recommend all your accommodations, trips and excursions, so that you don’t need to worry about anything other than enjoying our country’s stunning beauty and colourful history. We know all the best places to stay, all the best places to eat, and of course all the best pubs in which to sample our most famous export! Your own personal tour guide will take you to the wee secret places only a Stravaigin guide would know, and that you would never see on a typical coach tour of Scotland. Whether you want to go off the beaten track or visit the popular tourist spots, our guides will make sure your trip to Scotland is the trip of a lifetime.
We cater for small groups from 2 to 16 on our private guided tours, and we use only top of the range Luxury Mercedes Mini Coaches with all the top quality comforts and facilities to make your travel both relaxing and luxurious. Each vehicle has free Wifi, Air Conditioning, individual Leather Reclining Seats, Mini Bar, PA System and TV/DVD Screens, and plenty of extra luggage space.
Stravaigin – Giving you a real taste of Scotland, its history, and its heroes.
The Year is 2009
Ambitious Glasgow businessman and proud Scot Ian Byers makes it his personal mission to establish a company that specialises in 5 star luxury small coach tours and vacations in Scotland with customised itineraries, but without the pretentiousness, pushiness or stuffiness applied by some of the existing companies out there. Having experienced substandard service on similar trips as a customer, Ian also vowed there and then that his new venture would always remember to take great care in ensuring that all of Stravaigin’s clients, no matter where in the world they were from, would receive exemplary service, enhanced by using only the best top quality accommodation and Scottish produce and cuisine on all of its tours, bar none, and travel in luxury & comfort in top of the range vehicles.
And so – Stravaigin was born!
Now firmly established as a go to company specialising in Scotch Whisky and Distillery Tours, Historical and Sightseeing tours, Golf Outings, Personal and Customised Tours, and Specialist tours like its Outlander Locations and Robert Burns tours, Stravaigin is making waves in the travel industry. Stravaigin’s considerate ethos is at the heart of everything it does, and the company is undoubtedly reaping the rewards of this with fantastic word of mouth bookings, repeat business from customers worldwide and wonderful reviews from people who’ve experienced a Stravaigin tour.
“When I set up Stravaigin, I realised the importance of offering potential customers something different. Our individuality and our personal touches are what separate us from our competitors out there. This approach is what makes us such a popular choice with our clients, and it’s why we have people returning to us again and again, or sending friends and family to us to live the Stravaigin experience. We will continue to look at innovative and forward thinking ways to improve our already excellent service because we never want to rest on our laurels.”
