Victorian Electric Railway & Lady Isabella

  • Approximate Cost: $99 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: Douglas, Isle of Man
  • When: Afternoon tour

Take a ride on the Victorian Electric Railway, which has run for more than a century along the Isle of Man. You’ll visit Laxey and the Laxey Wheel, also known as Lady Isabella, which is the largest working waterwheel in the world. Then, take in the sweeping views of the Isle of Man’s coastline when you embark on a tram ride to Derby Castle, where you’ll board a motorcoach back to scenic Douglas Port.

Duart Castle

  • Approximate Cost: $55 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours
  • Location: Tobermory, Isle of Mull, Scotland
  • When: Morning tour

The ancestral home of the Maclean clan is yours to discover on this self-guided tour of the castle, but inside and out. After a picturesque drive along the coastline of the Isle of Mull, you’ll learn about the history of the original structure, dating back to the 13th century. After being restored a few years ago, it’s since been featured in several popular movies. The Great Hall with its soaring ceilings, historic artifacts, and bedrooms and dressing rooms is like taking a fascinating trek back in time.


Tour Image

Skara Brae & Skaill House

  • Approximate Cost: $69 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: Mainland, Orkney, Scotland
  • When: Afternoon tour

The Neolithic village of Skara Brae dates back to 3000 BC. Discovered in 1850 by William Graham Watt, a Scottish lord and the landowner of the property, it was partly revealed after a storm. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site gives viewers a look into the past about what life was like five millennia ago — including stone furniture like cupboards, storage, and a sophisticated drainage system including plumbing. Then, walk over to Skaill House, overlooking the stunning Bay of Skaill. It is the finest 17th-century mansion in Orkney and was the ancestral home of William Graham Watt. You can explore the elegant living quarters which have been maintained as they were in the 1950s, and which are filled with art, antiques, and Neolithic and Iron Age artifacts.


Tour Image

Stirling Castle

  • Approximate Cost: $139 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours
  • Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
  • When: Morning tour (Extension only)

Spend a memorable half day visiting Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s most historically significant manors, sitting high on volcanic rock and offering wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. Stirling Castle was a hotbed of Scottish history — this was the childhood home of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the site of her coronation. Learn about the history of William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and the battles fought here during the Game of Thrones-esque Wars of Independence. With lots of interesting things to see and do here, the Stirling Castle experience is a must for any visitor to Scotland.

Guinness Storehouse Tour and Literary Pub Crawl

  • Approximate Cost: $99 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4-5 hours
  • Location: Dublin, Ireland
  • When: Afternoon Tour

Get a real taste of Irish culture — and one of Dublin’s most amazing views — when you tour the recently reopened Guinness Storehouse. Honoring one of the Emerald Isle’s most famous beverages, you’ll step back in time and learn about the family that founded the brewery, their 999-year lease, and the historic St. James Gate neighborhood. You’ll sample plenty of this dry stout, and enjoy some time to relax in the stunning rooftop bar at the end of your insightful tour. Round out your tour with literary pub crawl, a walking tour of Dublin's most historic places to toast. A spirited actor will introduce some of the most famous works of literature from Ireland's storied history and perform scenes punctuating your on-foot explorations today.

Glendalough, Wicklow, & Powerscourt Gardens

  • Approximate Cost: $129 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 6 hours
  • Location: Dublin, Ireland

Travel south of Dublin to beautiful County Wicklow, where you will explore the spectacular Powerscourt Gardens, a 45-acre extravaganza of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, exquisite statues, and ornamental lakes. With more than 200 varieties of trees and shrubs, Powerscourt has been described as one of Europe's greatest gardens. From here we visit Glendalough, one of Ireland’s oldest and most important monasteries, founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Set between two idyllic lakes, its most prominent feature is the iconic High Tower where monks stored precious manuscripts and artifacts. We’ll return to Dublin on a scenic route that features the Wicklow Mountains, Wicklow Gap, and Blessington Lake.
