Shannon and Mario Owners.

Scottish Dream Tours is a small group tour operator that creates, arranges, schedules and conducts each of our tours personally in order to bring you the very best that Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England have to offer. The Scottish Dream Tours Team is made up of Shannon McDonald Tate who has been conducting tours for over 20 years and Mario Torres in his 17th year of conducting tours. We generally offer each tour just once a year and we only offer 12 scheduled tours a year which fits perfectly into the touring season in the British Isles and Ireland and more recently Tuscany, Greece, Switzerland, New Zealand and in 2024 Portugal, Andalucia Spain, South France and Germany. We specialize in small local and family owned accommodations, quaint tearooms, amazing castles, glorious gardens, cozy pubs, fascinating history, local folks and flavor, picturesque villages and spectacular scenery. We believe there is no better way to see these lands than on a small group tour that allows for a slower pace and time to enjoy the scenery, lovely villages and the warmhearted people who inhabit them.

All of our tours are designed for small groups of a maximum of 10-12 people(depending on the tour) in order to take advantage of the many different kinds of accommodations, eateries and sights that would not be available to larger groups. You may find yourself staying in a lovely city guest house, a small country house hotel, a centuries old coaching Inn, a Victorian seaside hotel, a secluded farmhouse and even possibly in a wee Scottish Castle all in the same visit! You will find yourself dining in unique tearooms, cozy pubs, old coaching inns, seaside restaurants or out to a Highland Dinner and Show, Irish music night, a castle afternoon tea or to a Irish or Welsh Banquet. We will take the road less traveled and wind our way through the spectacular countryside while taking in castles, cathedral, country houses and stately homes and historic sites. You will not find a more intimate small group experience!

We love taking advantage of the local theatre, Highlands nights and impromptu music sessions which is very easy when we have such small groups. We might take a side road off on a new adventure or help someone find an ancestral home if the opportunity presents itself. We love to have you meet the locals as often as possible, and try to arrange a unique experience on each tour to see how people live and interact within their community. We often come across sheep dog demonstrations or a shepherd moving his flock down the road along with the help of his trusty dogs. We also try to include some kind of wildlife experience into each tour with a puffin cruises or a wildlife safaris. We want you to feel like you are experiencing these lovely countries rather than just visiting them. We truly want you to fall in love with these places as much as we have!

Scottish Dream Tours now in our 23rd year of sharing our love of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and many parts of England that we treasure.
