Our awards

Our luxury holidays are renowned and revered not just by our loyal guests but by the travel industry too. Here you can see some of the awards we've received recently.

We're thrilled to continue to be recognised by our guests and the media as one of the world's leading luxury tour operators. When Andrew Dunn founded Scott Dunn in 1986, his philosophy was that 'nothing is ever too much trouble' and our teams remain committed to surpassing guest expectations.

Top Travel Specialists 2019 - WINNER

Condé Nast Traveller – Top Travel Specialists 2019

We’re delighted that our very own Jules Maury has been included in the Condé Nast Traveller list of Top Travel Specialists. Jules knows how to craft pan-generational and extraordinary itineraries, like her murder-mystery experience at a castle in Scotland (before taking off on a private jet to the Dolomites to ski), a family takeover of one of Sri Lanka’s most luxe coastal hotels with a private safari in Yala National Park followed by a picnic overlooking the tea plantations; or a heli trip to New Zealand’s Alps with fly-bys of 2,000-foot waterfalls and glaciers, before dropping in amongst the fur seals and foraging for fresh lobster. And as an avid skier, sailor, and rider, Maury knows just how to tire out restless teens.
