Itinerary Description:

Your journey through the British Isles begins in England’s buzzing capital of London, exploring the bright lights of the city with a private driver and guide. During your three days in London, an exciting itinerary will be created for you and perfectly-tailored to your unique interests – from culture and art, to fine dining experiences. Enjoy an exclusive private visit to the underground crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral; gaze across the city with unparalleled views from your private pod on the London Eye; set out on an after-hours tour of the Tower of London; and take a helicopter flight along the River Thames to spend a day in Oxford – The City of Dreaming Spires – famed for its university and place in history.

After three days in London travel north to the beautiful Scottish capital of Edinburgh where you will have the chance to wander through the medieval old town and elegant Georgian new town with neoclassical buildings galore. Explore Scotland’s captivating history and heritage, including the marvelous Edinburgh Castle which looms over the city in all its glory. Enjoy three nights in Edinburgh, with an exciting program crafted for you to enjoy the highlights of the region, including a private experience aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia and a round of golf at the stunning Old Course in St. Andrews.

Onwards to the Highlands and across to the pristine Isle of Skye – a beautiful island of rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages, and medieval castles. The award-winning Kinloch Lodge will be your home-away-from-home for the next two nights and is perfectly placed for you to explore the Isle of Skye.

From Scotland your journey will continue to Ireland and the lively capital of Dublin where you will be immersed in Irish history and culture, with an active program designed to experience Dublin at its best. As one of Europe’s oldest cities it has history and charm aplenty, but you can also enjoy shopping and elegant restaurants in the Irish capital. Dublin is a vibrant place to discover accompanied by your private guide – from the Victorian People's Flower Gardens set on 22 acres, to the hub of Grafton Street with boutiques galore, and onwards to Trinity College and Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.

After two nights in Dublin, you will journey west to your final destination in the heart of the Irish countryside: in County Clare at Dromoland Castle. Experience the fabulous scenery from above, being whisked up for a private helicopter flight over the Cliffs of Moher, followed by a secluded picnic on the beautiful islands of Aran. Soak up the panoramic views with long walks, excellent gastronomy and spa relaxation for the afternoon – the perfect end to your British Isles adventure!
