Absolutely! However, we do only have one Henry, so it is best to get in touch with us as soon as possible not to avoid disappointment. If we have a free day and one of our friendly and experienced drivers is available, we will happily accommodate your event. Please note that bookings made less than three months prior to the event are required to pay the full hire fee at the time of booking.
Henry works throughout the year – the different seasons have their own beautiful effect on the tours, with Summer being our most popular! The only reason Henry wouldn’t be running is due to adverse weather conditions that could be dangerous for our passengers and drivers.
We generally try to keep all pickups and drop-offs within 35 miles of Dundee City Centre. However, if your event is out of this area, we may still be able to accommodate you! Please mention this to our event organiser when making a booking enquiry and we will do our best. Please note that extra charges may be incurred in addition to those on our price list for travel out of the area.
Henry is driven by a number of drivers who adore and care for him as much as his “Mum” Angie. Our drivers are attentive and experienced, in both driving Henry and providing five-star service to their passengers. From educating tourists on Dundee and the surrounding areas rich history to lending a hand to the bride as she steps off of Henry, our drivers will be with you every step of the way.
Henry comfortably holds eight passengers and your driver. The passenger seats are inward, luxury cushioned seating which gives him his distinct interior. You can check it out in our photo gallery.
Unfortunately, Henry does not have disabled access. As much as we would love to accommodate everyone aboard Henry, his vintage design does not accommodate for wheelchair and other mobility support devices.
That being said, previous passengers who have required the use of walking sticks have managed to on and offboard Henry with the use of our onboarding steps.
If you would like to go into more detail on Henry’s mobility access, then please contact us.
Absolutely! Henry accommodates children of all ages onboard. At the responsibility of the adults, children under two should be on the lap of a seatbelted adult. Children over the age of two should be on booster seats. We ask that you provide your own booster seats where possible, but have two booster seats available for children of +2 years if needed.
Unfortunately, we do not permit you to bring your own alcohol abroad Henry. However, we do have the option to add bubbles onto any booking for a small fee, which we can happily present chilled to you in Henry’s crystal glasses. If you are interested in adding this onto your package, please mention this when completing your booking enquiry.
We just have Henry at the moment, although working within the Tourism & Wedding sector around Dundee, we are part of a great network of local companies. Please get in touch if you would like any suggestions or advice – we are more than happy to help!
We will try our best to accommodate any last-minute bespoke requests. However, please bear in mind that this may not always be possible. Depending on the change, some additional charges may apply which we can discuss with you at the time of the request.
