Each touring course lasts for 6 days, from midday on Sunday to Friday afternoon. Three days are based in and around Edinburgh and 3 one-day trips take place outside Edinburgh. What better way to visit Edinburgh and learn about the history, sites and tastes of Scotland?

Why is Plus English different?

During the tours you will always be accompanied by two native English speakers; a professional tour guide and a qualified English teacher. There are a maximum of 6 clients per tour so you will always have the opportunity to listen to authentic English and improve your speaking skills.

Each tour has English language incorporated in a natural way throughout the day. Mini English lessons and correction sessions take place on location in the places visited or at our English school in central Edinburgh. Lessons are taught by a qualified English teacher and vocabulary and grammar notes are provided. You will have plenty of opportunity to practise new vocabulary during the tours. The teacher is always there for you to answer any language questions and the guide is there to answer questions about Scotland and the locations on tour. You get the best parts of a guided tour and an English course!
