Norfolk, VA

What made you want to travel to Scotland?:
“I love the beautiful country and the easy way of life in Scotland.”

Who did you travel with on your Scottish adventure?:
“I travelled with my best friend, Shellie. We have been friends for forty years.”

Where were the top 3 places to visit on your wish list? Did they meet/beat your expectations?:

“1. Edinburgh – wonderful city with great shopping.
2. Isle of Skye – beautiful country
3. Eilean Donan Castle – great history

I was able to visit all three places and they all exceeded my expectations.”

What was the best part about your vacation?:

“The best part of my vacation was not having to worry about transportation or setting up hotel reservations. Everything went so smoothly – no issues at all. The people at Tenon Tours did a great job getting the itinerary set up for us.”

Why did you decide to book your trip through Tenon Tours?:

“Tenon Tours was suggested by my friend. They took care of booking our flights, transportation, hotels and creating a wonderful itinerary.”

Anything to add about your personal sales representative?:

“Very helpful. This was my first time traveling internationally and she was extremely kind in answering all of my questions. She had also visited Scotland and stayed at the same hotels so she was able to provide insight.”

Do you wish you prepared better for any specific part of the trip?:

“No. My sales rep was very helpful in explaining to me what to expect. I also referred to the website which has a ton of information. The Q&A section was a big help.”

Any advice about the weather?:

“I travelled in the middle of September and the weather was gorgeous. I took a raincoat with a zip out liner – some days were a little more warmer so I just removed my liner. I suggest taking a coat like this if you have one.”

Tell us about any new friends you may have met along the way.:

“I met two new friends on the singles tour. Both ladies were very friendly and had used Tenon Tours before. We went to dinner several times together, travelled together on trains and taxis, and did some sight-seeing on the side together. I also met a husband/wife couple on the tour and had a great time talking to them.”

What are your favorite souvenirs you brought home?:

“My favorite souvenir is rocks from Loch Ness. It may be a simple item, but it will remind me of the fabulous time I had.”

Were there any unplanned parts of your trip that wound up turning into one of your favorite travel stories?:

“Traveling to Loch Ness. My friends and I hired a taxi for the afternoon and the drive took us to Loch Ness and other surrounding sights. He was very knowledgeable about the area and we spend four hours with him. It was a great time.”

What destination is next on your list?:
“I think I would like to travel to more of the British Isles.”

Do you have any stories about taking scheduled transportation while on your Hopper Tour? (buses, trains, etc..):

“The train rides were great. Very comfortable and met so many great people. The buses were very clean and comfortable as well.”

Would you suggest traveling with a group of like-minded people? Do you feel it enhanced your experience?:

“I travelled with several people close to my age. We were all able to relate well to one another and had many similarities in life – kids, careers, etc…”

Is there anything else that you would like to mention, Tracy?:

“I suggest visiting the Queen’s Gallery in Edinburgh. Great history and the tour guides are fabulous! I also suggest visiting the Edinburgh Zoo. Great interactive walk-thru’s with the animals.”

Thank you Tracy! We look forward to working with you again in the future- Bring Shellie too! šŸ™‚
