Customized Itineraries for Age Diverse Groups My 76 year old mother, teenage son and myself did a five day tour around the Scottish highlands with Braw. Our guide/driver, Tony, was fantastic.

I really didn’t have a specific agenda when initially planning the trip so I requested Braw put together a standard itinerary. After getting to know the group, Tony suggested some alterations to the itinerary that involved activities specific to our group’s interests.
