Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

        About Coopersmith's One-of-a-kind Tours

        Founded in 1984, North American based Coopersmith Tours offers unique garden tours in the United Kingdom.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Unlike many tour companies, Coopersmith is unique in that they intentionally only offer between 7-8 itineraries. Every year they create different offerings, though standard favorites always remain. Tours are designed by their expert tour leaders, who all have diverse backgrounds. Expect an all encompassing true English countryside experience. You’ll stay in local inns, country manors, and enjoy gourmet meals along the way.

        Who Travels With Them?

        If you’re an Anglophile, you will love taking a tour with Coopersmith. Although the average age on their tours is 65, any age is welcome. Group size is limited to 16-18 max. Tours are in mid to high budget range.

        Where Do They Operate?

        Their tours are mainly focused in the UK, where some of the world’s most beautiful gardens can be found. They do offer tours in France on a limited basis.

        Why Travel With Them?

        For a truly magical and immersive look at English country gardens, where you’ll feel straight out of Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey. Their tours operate at a decidedly slow pace - allowing you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

        About St Hilda Sea Adventures

        St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

        Who Travels With Them?

        All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

        Where Do They Operate?

        The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

        Why Travel With Them?

        Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
