What our travelers say about their
castle trips

This feeling of "Wow!" happened every day!
By first-time traveler Connie on 7/9/19
The tour kept us very busy. We saw so many castles, churches, palaces, statues, paintings, mountains, small village towns, large European cities, and much more! We were able to go on top of a couple of the Alps and then underground in Salzburg for a tour of a salt mine. It was outstanding!

Rainbows, Castles, & Guinness - the best tour ever!
By 1st-time traveler Greta on 10/3/19
I had such a wonderful time on my tour through Ireland! The hotels that we stayed in were beautiful, and we visited a number of adorable small towns along the way. My favorite part of the tour was the optional trip to the Aran Islands, and of course the Cliffs of Moher were even more stunning.

Outstanding Tour of Edinburgh and Scottish Castles!
By 4th-time traveler John on 9/26/19
Six castles were programmed into the tour. After visiting Edinburgh Castle, we spent some time walking the Royal Mile toward a castle, Holyrood, not programmed into the tour, and visited it. The non-castle elements of the tour were excellent. We strongly, emphatically recommend this tour.

Cornelius and Castles of Scotland
By 2nd-time traveler Ruth on 10/3/19
Despite unusual amounts of rain, the tour was awesome. We went in October. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see the Scottish highlands and understand the history of the area. The castles were awesome and the scenery breathtaking.
