  • Fully guided tour

This can vary from tour to tour, but Invisible Cities prefer to have tours starting with three customers. The maximum capacity is usually 20 or 25.

Is your group bigger? Don’t panic. They can accommodate any size, if you have more than 25 people they will simply split your group between several guides at no added cost to you!

The tours delivered by Invisible Cities take you on a unique route, but most of them are wheel-chair accessible.

They can also adapt their tours to your group and guests, so everyone can enjoy them!

No! Rain or shine, your tour will go ahead, unless there is a weather warning and you have been advised to stay inside (which has happened in Scotland before!)
