What our customers say

 

Discover what our amazing clients, who travelled recently, thought about their experience with Nordic Visitor.

Nordic Visitor help us plan for the perfect Scottish vacation. Their attention to detail and allowing us to customize our holiday went above and beyond. Then when the unexpected happened, they were there for us every second, showing kindness, compassion and thoughtfulness. Cannot thank them enough.

- Kyia, visited Scotland in 2022
I have so many great things to say about Nordic Visitor! We did the self-driving Express Scotland tour and it was wonderful! Our contact Rebecca was amazing, answering every question, responding to all my emails and planning the trip to my specifications perfectly. She was able to customize the tour to fly in and out of two separate airports, we added an extra night in Skye, and she arranged hotels and private transfers for us, so we didn’t have to think about a thing except showing up and have a wonderful time!

- Amy, visited Scotland in 2022
Having everything "Simply Work Out" according to plans was the most satisfying part of our recent vacation to Scotland. We worked with Annie for many weeks to get the details squared away for a vacation during "the Covid-period". Once we arrived in Edinburgh until the time that we left, everything simply went according to script. 

- Mike, visited Scotland in 2021
