TOUR COST:

As it is the same cost to run a day tour with 1 or with 8 passengers on board, it is the same cost overall for the hire of the 8 passenger mini-bus with driver/guide per day, regardless of how many passengers are travelling on board.

Winter rates are much reduced, so you might still find it economical per person for you and your friends to go ahead with the tour, even if we don’t manage to fill the coach and you can’t find any more of your friends to join you. So even if you are only 7, 6 or 5 passengers in total, you will still find the price per person competitive and in the end it is your own private tour and you have more space on the mini-bus.

Alternatively if you give us enough notice, generally 4 days + on a tour involving overnight accommodation, you may decide, that as there are too few guests, you are cancelling the tour, as the per person rate is too high.

November to February weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) are £199 per day https://unicorntours.co.uk/nov-feb-low-season-adults-students-sat-sun/

  • £49 per person based on a tour group of 8 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £56 per person based on a tour group of 7 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £65 per person based on a tour group of 6 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £78 per person based on a tour group of 5 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £98 per person based on a tour group of 4 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £129 per person based on a tour group of 3 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £195 per person based on a tour group of 2 guests for a 2 day weekend winter tour
  • £398 per person based on a tour group of 1 guest for a 2 day weekend winter tour

= £398 for a 2 day weekend tour (hire of 8 passenger mini-bus with driver / tour guide)

Either

you are a group of friends, i.e. a group of 3, 4, 5,6 or 7 people booking a tour altogether and YOU KNOW FROM THE OUTSET THAT THIS IS A DEFINITE GO AHEAD – in which case you would pay £49 per person – and we would advertise the remaining seats left. In the event of there being less than 8 passengers on the tour, you then just pay the difference on the day

  • if the final group size is 7 and you have paid £49 pp, you would pay the difference of £7 per person (= £56 pp if 7)
  • if the final group size is 6 and you have paid £49 pp, you would pay the difference of £16 per person (=£65 pp if 6)
  • if the final group size is 5 and you have paid £49 pp, you would pay the difference of £29 per person (=£78 pp if 5))
  • if the final group size is 4 and you have paid £49 pp, you would pay the difference of £49 per person (=£98 pp if 4)
  • if the final group size is 3 and you have paid £49 pp, you would pay the difference of £80 per person (= £129 pp if 3)
  • etc.

 

OR

you wish to join the tour as an INDIVIDUAL, a COUPLE or a GROUP of 3 or 4 FRIENDS, WHO WOULD ONLY LIKE TO JOIN THE TOUR, IF THE TOUR IS FULL (group size 8) or near full (group size 7 or 6)  – in which case you can register your interest by being put on the WAITING LIST and don’t pay until more people have come forward, who wish to book and pay for the tour later.

I will keep you up-to-date, i.e. send out an email, we are currently 5, 6 or 7 on the waiting list, would you like to book and pay the £49 per person now and any difference (in case there are less than 8 passengers) on the day of travel.

Once we have a group size of 8, 7, 6 or 5 passengers you can then decide, if you wish to proceed and book yourself onto the tour (the usual deadline is about 7 days before the tour date) and pay or alternatively cancel and being removed from the waiting list.

P.S.:

  • Extension option (only if everyone in the entrire whole group, i.e. all of up to 8 passengers decided for it and discussed it with ourselves well ahead of the tour): Currently the afternoon of Friday, 2nd November is still available, midweek rate is £75 for half a day, which works out £9 extra per person per tour for the half day on Friday + 1 more night at the hostel + if the group so wanted, this extra time could enable us to have
  • a full day tour of the Isle of Mull and Iona (Oban – Mull return currently £7.20 per person + Mull – Iona return currently £3.40 return per person)
