Student street performer playing the trumpet in Edinburgh, Scotland during the Fringe Festival – the world's largest arts festival.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Travel to Scotland's capital to experience the world's largest arts festival. This will be the 70th time thousands of performers from around the world will gather here for three weeks in August. Last year, there were 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows in 294 venues!

Your group will be immersed in the arts as you stroll past the many street performances throughout the city. Groups can also purchase tickets to a wide variety of shows including: theatre, comedy, dance, circus, cabaret, musicals, opera, poetry, exhibitions & more.

And, if you're worried about accessibility, don't. This event is highly focused on "access to the performance." Access includes, but is not limited to, British Sign Language interpretation, audio description, captioning & relaxed performances. Please ask your agent if anyone in your group is in need of these services.

Custom Tours Through Scotland

Scotland is known for its lush landscapes, dotted with both imposing historic castles & quaint stone cottages. But, its down-to-earth people are where the country really shines. Take some time to venture out into the countryside to interact with the locals to learn more about the rich culture & history of this enchanting land.

Or, choose to keep to the cities, if you prefer. From the rocky hills of Edinburgh (one of Europe's most beautiful cities) to the quaint town of Iverness (made famous by its shyest loch-dwelling resident), Scotland has an abundance of charming locales waiting to be discovered.

Wherever you decide to go, don't forget to taste the local fare (regardless of what you may have heard about Scottish cuisine). Sure, the country has more than its share of crowded pubs, but you'll also find a wonderful array of decadent restaurants & fabulous little pastry shops as well.

Just let us know where your interests lie & we'll create the perfect itinerary for you.
