Start your journey following in the King’s footsteps in London where you will explore the city from above. A helicopter ride will see you soar over Buckingham Palace, Whitehall, Westminster, Big Ben and the Tower of London to take in some of the most iconic sights. Staying at The Goring – a favorite of the Royal Family – you’ll enjoy accommodation fit for a king.

No royal experience would be complete without a trip to Hyde Park to watch the Household Cavalry Division march out on horseback. Having taken in the city from above, you’ll now explore the heart of London from the River Thames as you stay on board a luxury superyacht docked opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

The Cotswolds

Whilst Highgrove – the private residence of His Majesty – may be out of reach, you can still enjoy a grand affair at Cliveden House where Meghan Markle stayed the night before her wedding. With this famous hotel as your base, refuel after your helicopter ride with a decadent afternoon tea served by one of the royal butlers. Then, be whisked off through the Cotswolds in an Aston Martin to Blenheim Palace for a private dining experience like no other.

The following day, live like a member of the Royal Family as you enjoy a private polo experience with Prince William’s old teammates on The Great Tew Estate before a visit to Gatcombe Park to meet extended members of the family. To see the best of this picturesque locale, take to the skies for a hot air balloon ride and gaze down at some of the Royals’ favorite haunts, pubs and private residences such as Highgrove Estate, as well as the incredibly beautiful English countryside. Whilst in the Cotswolds, you will stay in comfort and luxury at Thyme – a quintessentially British hotel loved by the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Edinburgh & St Andrews

Characterized by awe-inspiring landscapes and ever-changing scenery, Scotland is a remarkably dramatic location of overwhelming beauty. From rugged mountainous peaks and vast tranquil lochs to the enchanting coastline of beaches and striking islands, Scotland’s landscape is mesmerizing.

Start your Scottish adventure in the capital: Edinburgh. An array of tours awaits including out-of-hours access to Holyrood Castle and Edinburgh Castle, as well as a private behind-the-scenes tour of Royal Yacht Britannia where you will enjoy evening drinks. Next, head to St Andrews to explore this historic university and see where Prince William and Kate met.

Yacht Experiences

If seeing Britannia got your sea legs excited, there are many yacht-based experiences to enjoy in Scotland. The coastline is a thriving hub for wildlife with the rich waters home to various species of whale, dolphin, seals and otters, as well as countless bird species including puffins and eagles. After a day on the water, anchor off the coast of Castle Toward – an ancient castle that has been recently renovated – before enjoying a spectacular evening of entertainment here (think a traditional Scottish Ceilidh accompanied by a local band, highland games, and fine dining).


No Scottish journey would be complete without a visit to the Scottish Highlands. Travel by 4x4 to a highland estate near Braemar to enjoy lunch accompanied by Scottish storytelling and music. A playground for the outdoor adventurer, Scotland’s diverse terrain provides endless hiking opportunities through craggy peaks and rugged landscapes. Get out into the heart of the highlands on an expert-led hike to the historical cairns erected by the Royal Family on the Balmoral Estate, the late Queen’s favorite home. Then, embark on a private tour of the Royal Lochnagar Distillery (this distillery malt was first made for one of Queen Victoria’s royal banquets) where you can sample the different malts and see what Scotland is so famous for.
