My husband and I wanted a day outside of Edinburgh that wasn't on a tour bus. So, we found Helen on the internet. We chose the Whiskey and Chocolate tour. Helen is so easy and relaxing to be around, it was like having a friend show us around for the day. It was just beautiful seeing the Perthshire area; she... More

Helen is not only a good guide, but I can tell you firsthand that she is flexible, patient and accommodating. We put Helen through the wringer. I initially booked with her as a solo tour from Edinburgh to Oban, where I was to meet up with my husband and his mom. She was kind enough to offer me a small... More

I was delighted to return to Afternoon Tea Tours for a short break exploring Glencoe and the surrounding area. Helen had organised everything with meticulous detail. She loves to surprise and the level of detail in her knowledge of Scottish history and local anecdotes really adds to the experience. I had asked to walk to the Lost Valley, where the... More

Experiencing the Highlands while in Helen's hands was like spending time with an old friend my wife and I hadn't seen in quite a while. We exchanged information and stories as we left the airport and became caught up and comfortable fairly quickly, which was good considering we were going to spend six days together. Helen was guiding us in... More

Helen had planned a perfect tour for us six middle aged people from Sweden. Even if it was January the weather was perfect - sunny and clear - so we had beautiful walks at every stop. The day ended perfectly with afternoon tea at Prestonfield. Thank you Helen! We really want to come back another time of the year!

Helen's love and knowledge of her country shines through every detail of her fantastic tours. My mother and I were treated to a day trip with Helen's Afternoon Tea Tours by my brother. After we had both viewed her delightful website, we chose a day in the Lowlands of Scotland as we both were keen to see Roslyn Chapel and... More

I am so glad that I found Helen's Afternoon Tea Tours on Trip Advisor before my trip to Scotland. I sent her an email asking for a day that we could do a tour, and what may be involved. She responded very promptly with a good day, and asked for more information about myself and my friends so that she... More

My sister and I had an amazing day with Helen, one of the highlights of our trip to Scotland! Everything was so well planned and organized and a welcome break for us! We would never have had the chance to see this beautiful area with someone who lives here and was so willing to share.

For our first trip to Scotland from the US, we decided to make Edinburgh our home base. We were introduced to Helen Fraser and "Afternoon Tea Tours" by a friend who had visited Scotland some years ago and had made two day trips with Helen. After exchanging a few e-mails in which in which Helen got a sense of what... More

I had the pleasure of spending 2 wonderful days touring the area of Edinburgh and the lower Highlands area near Perthshire. I was visiting Edinburgh for a conference but chose to travel over 3 days earlier than the conference start. This way I could tour and see the hilly areas around the city as once the conference started, I would... More
