Tours geared towards senior citizens allow them to travel with like-minded companions within their own age group. Generally, the tours go at a more leisurely pace, and often seniors are transported between destinations via buses or other vehicles so they don't have to do as much walking. A variety of senior tours are available to the major destinations in Scotland.
Scot-It offers a number of tours for all age groups, including school groups, individuals, seniors and the disabled. Their tours run from 3 to 21 days long and explore a number of sites throughout Scotland.
The tours for senior citizens and the disabled take travellers to destinations that are easily accessible to these groups. Lodging, meals and attractions are included in the price. A group representative will also be available throughout the tour to assist the travellers should any need or problem arise.
