What people are saying

We don't like to brag about ourselves, so here are some nice things our travellers had to say.

Orkney & the Highlands, July 2016

Couldn't be more thrilled with everything

Oh my gosh! We had the BEST time, and Maria did an all around FABULOUS job!  All the hotels were very nice, clean, comfortable and had lovely views!..I appreciated that all hotels had a tea kettle in the room to make hot water, and nice hair dryers.

We really enjoyed the book that you put together for our trip with suggested sites. It was very helpful. If it only came with a time management button it would be incredible, haha! We totally missed the sights in Inverness because we spent too much time at a castle and then things were closed. Maybe including hours of sites would be helpful. We did get better as we went!

The North Link ferry was so fun. This was a wonderful experience, with a restaurant, observation decks, a store, comfy chairs....Etc. Going to Orkney Island was so worth it; actually one of our favorite places, along with the Highlands, Glencoe area, Edinburgh castle....maybe we have too many favorites..) 

For food, it was interesting. We found great restaurants (Rollo and the Smoo Cave Hotel restaurant come to mind as delicious!), and luckily we stopped at a grocery store several times for easy food to be able to eat whenever.

As far as driving, it was fine and nice to be on our schedule. The single track roads in the highlands worked out fine... We drove 1,235 miles, saw wonderful sites, hiked amazing places, took thousands of pics and couldn't be more thrilled with everything that Nordic Visitor planned and prepared for us! We have several people that were interested in our opinion after our trip, and we will certainly be giving Nordic Visitor a fabulous endorsement, and Maria of course! Thank you so much for an unforgettable epic trip!

Most incredible experience on honeymoon

This vacation was our honeymoon. We had just got married in the states a few days prior to the start of our trip. We had the most incredible experience. Everything was just wonderful. Working with our travel agent, Maria, for months prior, could not have been a better experience. She was so helpful, always quick to respond, answered all of my (many!) questions with great detail, and was so friendly. My sister secretly reached out to her to choose a restaurant to treat us to dinner for the last night of our trip, and Maria's suggestion was perfect. I especially loved the folder we received upon arrival that included vouchers for each day. This was helpful to enter in the destination to the car's GPS to help us get around. The spiral bound itinerary/suggestion booklet was really great. Not only did it suggest what to do each day, but it gave you a little history of each item. Since we were on our own most of the trip, these little blurbs of info gave me a nice bit of history, the perfect amount. The section at the end that provided helpful tips on traveling, money, tipping, weather, packing, etc. was awesome. I could not have asked for a better experience at any stage of planning or the trip itself.

Highlights of Scotland, August 2016

Fun & educational

Tour director Brian Collie was amazing! He made the trip fun & educational. 

Brian provided us daily bonus stops in addition to the planned itinerary. I loved that we didn't hit all the usual crowded tourists stops!

Classic Scotland, September 2016

Loved the travel guide

We recently visited Scotland using Nordic Visitor’s Classic Scotland drive yourself tour, and I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed it. All of the hotels were wonderful, and the staff was so nice. Everything was in order, and there were no glitches with any of our reservations. We especially loved the travel guide — the itineraries were well laid out and we made good use of the suggested highlights and optional activities. We will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor to any friends who may be considering this type of trip.

Classic Scotland, July 2016

Organization couldn't have been better

Hi Maria,

We're just on the train back from Edinburgh, and wanted to say a big thank you for all your help organising our trip!

We had an amazing time travelling round Scotland, and all the organization couldn't have been better. Everything went so smoothly - all the information you provided was so detailed and really helped us make the most of our trip. And all the accommodation was just amazing!!

We've had such a great time, thank you again for all your help! I will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor to my friends!

Best wishes,

Classic Scotland, September 2016

Well curated trip

We had an amazing trip! It was so well curated! All of the destinations were thoughtful both in terms of location and distance traveled during the day. The sightseeing suggestions in the tour guide were excellent. The hotels and guest houses were all wonderful - comfortable and full of character. To put together a trip like this on our own would have required weeks of online research and we never would have been able to achieve something this perfect! Thank you so much for a great trip!

Orkney & the Highlands, August 2016

Lovely time in the Highlands

Just wanted to say we had a really lovely time on our 'grand tour' of the Highlands and Islands. We hadn't realised how many mountains Scotland had! And how beautiful the scenery. All our accommodation was great. Thanks for organising it.

Scotland Winter World, November 2016

Thank you very much for everything!

Back to Portugal, we cannot tell you how much we have enjoyed travelling arround your beautiful ​country. It would not have been possible without a superb organisation and support from your side. The map with the itinerary was a great help, without doubt, as well as the booklet with lots of useful information. We used them both throughout the whole time. Let us also tell you that we have enjoyed very much all the hotels and rooms you've booked for us. Needless to say that we look forward to using Nordic Visitor services again, in the future!
