Oxford & Blenheim Palace

  • Approximate Cost: $199 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 8 hours
  • Location: Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England
  • When: Full-day tour

A day of visual riches awaits on this all-day combination tour to Oxford, “the city of dreaming spires,” home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, as well as stunning Blenheim Palace, ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill. Starting in Oxford, take a tour through the medieval center and the university, including the Old Covered Market, the Radcliff Camera, the Bodlean Library, Christchurch Chapel, and the quad and interior of one of the colleges. (Note that interior visits to the college are dependent on their opening times, which are not published until a few days before.) Stop for lunch on your own and leisure time in Oxford. Then, just a short drive away is Blenheim Palace, set among some of the most famous gardens in England. Your visit includes a tour of the palace interior, the Winston Churchill Museum, the palace’s painting and tapestry collection, and more. You’ll also have time to stroll the grounds, with lakes, lawns, and gardens that are considered some of the finest works of Capability Brown, the English landscaping pioneer.

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.
