Frequently Asked Questions
About Private Europe Tour Packages

You may want to know more about visiting Northern Europe on a privately guided tour. To help you decide if this is the right choice for you, we’ve answered the most commonly asked questions here. If you want to ask us something else, or you want to start planning your trip, get in touch with us.

Alternatively, find out how to make a booking, have a look at our FAQs, or learn about our Book With Confidence travel plan.

On a private tour, you and your party travel with a handpicked guide. They drive you from one attraction to the next and share their insider knowledge with you. This way you get a unique insight into the destination you visit and don’t need to worry about driving or sharing transport with anyone else.

When you book a private travel package with Nordic Visitor, you don’t need to find local tour guides yourself. We already have expert private guides who are fully licensed. We handpick the best professional to accompany you depending on your interests, such as history and ancestry.

Private touring offers you the chance to travel deeper into the places you visit. Your personal guide will bring your trip to life as they share their authentic perspective with you. They are passionate about the destination you are exploring and you’ll be able to learn so much from them.

What’s more, we will choose a professional for you who specialises in your interests. You might want an expert in photography, history, whisky, northern lights or something else. We have all the right contacts and will make sure you get the perfect tour guide for your trip.

At Nordic Visitor we pride ourselves on our high service standards and carefully choose our guides. When you travel with us, you’ll see hidden gems that only a guide who lives and breathes their home would be able to share. They’ll help you connect with local culture, history and nature.

Another benefit of exploring Europe with a private tour guide is that they’ll also be your private chauffeur. Sit back and relax as your driver-guide takes you around your destination, leaving you to enjoy the journey. This is extra convenient if you want to take a whisky tour in Scotland, for example.

Alternatively, you could opt for a guided small group tour of Northern Europe. This is great for connecting travellers with others from around the world, and you still get to learn from a local tour guide.

The best time to take a private tour of Northern Europe depends on the sort of trip you’re looking for.

To experience long daylight hours and mild weather, we recommend you visit in the summer. This is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities, boat tours and wildlife sightings. Bear in mind that the months of June, July, August and September are the most popular for trips to Northern Europe.

If you’d like to travel when it’s a bit quieter, go in the spring or autumn (May or October). You’ll find fewer visitors at top attractions but you still get a good amount of daylight hours.

Or time your trip for the winter (November to March or April), which tends to be the quietest season. Your tour guide will be your chauffeur so you don’t need to worry about driving in cold weather conditions. In some destinations, like Iceland, you’ll even get the chance to see the northern lights!

All of our vehicles are spacious, clean and comfortable. We cover all group sizes from 1 to 16, so the size of your vehicle will depend on the size of your party.

As an example, you might travel in a Land Cruiser in Iceland if you are a group of 3. If your party has between 4 and 9 passengers, you could tour Iceland in a Mercedes Benz Sprinter.

In Scotland, on the other hand, your vehicle may be a luxury 4x4 or saloon car if there are up to 3 people in your group. One of the options for parties of 3 to 6 is a Volkswagen Transporter. Meanwhile, groups of up to 15 passengers might travel in a Mercedes Benz Sprinter minibus.

We can accommodate large groups for our private tours of Northern Europe, although each destination has slightly different regulations.

For private tours of Iceland, you can book directly on our website if there are up to 9 people in your party. For groups of 10 or more, we’ll give you a custom tour quote and booking link.

For private tours of Scotland, you can reserve your trip online if there are up to 6 people in your party. For a larger group, we’ll provide a custom booking link for you.

In Scotland you can travel in a private group of up to 7 people for as long you like. However, for parties of 8 and above, a 6-day tour with one guide would be the maximum duration. This is due to minibus tour regulations in the UK.

Tipping is rather different in Europe compared to North America. Here, tipping your guide is entirely up to you. While a tip is not expected by your guide, we have no doubt that the gesture would be greatly appreciated.

Usually you would meet your travel guide on the second day of your trip, once you’re rested and refreshed after travelling.

When you first arrive, your private transfer will be waiting to take you to your hotel in comfort and style. You then have the rest of the day to relax and explore your arrival city at your leisure.

However, if you’d like more time to explore independently, you can always choose to meet your guide on the third day of your trip.

Yes, you can pick an arrival date that suits you and your party.

Our privately guided tours of Northern Europe are some of our most flexible packages. As such, your dedicated travel consultant will gladly tailor your trip to suit your specific interests. You decide how long you want to explore for and what sort of attractions and activities to experience.

We suggest that you book your flights once your Nordic Visitor travel consultant has confirmed your tour package. This ensures that you have all the correct timing information when you book your flights. You can of course check for flight dates and times beforehand.
