Scotland has seen a huge increase in the amount of Cruise Liners that have visited over the last few years. Since 2004 I have personally been picking up passengers for private day tours from all the major cruise liners that arrived at Greenock (Glasgow), Invergordon (Inverness) and South Queensferry (Edinburgh). Cruise liners such as the Celebrity Silhouette, Jewel of the Sea's, MSC Splendida, Crown Princess, Caribbean Princess, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary 2 now regularly visit Scottish waters during the year.
All my private tours from Greenock, Invergordan and Edinburgh from cruise liners are very flexible and I can devise an itinerary based on your requirements or you can choose from a selection of tours that I feel maximise the time you have in port. I pride myself in not visiting the tourist traps that the bus tours go to and prefer to show the quiet, country roads when possible. For lunch I can recommend some cracking wee historic Scottish Inns or Taverns that DON'T cater for bus parties (no room!)
These private and personal tours from Greenock can be for 1 to 8 persons, although I can arrange transport for larger groups up to 16 or over. I will personally meet and greet you at the security point at the cruise terminals and get you back to ship in plenty of time - even stopping for supplies at the local shops for you if you require (much better value Single Malt Whisky and fine wines available!) But please contact me as early as possible as these tours are very popular and I often get booked a year in advance.
