Joe, our tour guide, is an amazing story teller. I had so much fun listening to him putting all the history into a compact and understandable context. The places were awesome and we were so lucky with the weather!

Great tour with history buff Mike as our driver and guide. Highly recommend this tour and any tour Mike conducts. You will be assured of an interesting and informative tour.
Very nice tour. We appreciated the guide. She show us the good spot to see the parade. I recommande this tour, it's take half day.
Rabbies was awesome. And we had a very good tour guide Eric. Nice voice too! Thanks viator
This tour was amazing!
This is a nice day trip from Edinburgh. The guide was friendly and knowledgable. The itinerary was good. Note that if your main objective is to see Rosslyn Chapel, it is only about 25 minutes from the Rabbies office, so you will be spending several hours at other locations before stoping there for an hour or so.
Richard was an amazing guide; very knowledgable and gave a great history of the city. While there wasn and #39;t a lot we were seeing, it was a great way to acclimate to the country. Well done!
Nothing wrong with the tour's agenda. Our experience was marred, however, by a talkative passenger who sat next to the driver. Instead of asking her to shut up, the driver engaged in a boring dialog over the van's PA system.
This tour should have been the highlight of my trip to London. It wasn't. To be fair, part of the problem was the traffic caused by road changes and closures around the city that meant lengthy delays and some changes of bus route. My sons and I are interested in the history and royalty, and have zero interest in learning about the stores we were passing and how upmarket they are. That aside, the main problem was with how the Changing of the Guard Ceremony was presented.
We expected that we would be taken down to the palace and be able to watch the entire changing of the guard. Instead, we were taken to one area to watch the new guards coming out, then we had to hurry down the mall to watch them march through the palace gates - and that was it. We didn't see the old guards march out. Therefore there was no changing of the guard. We then had to hurry back up the mall to watch the horse guard coming past. I assumed that this tour would have allowed us to watch the entire ceremony from one spot and not keep moving. The tour guide for the day was also not very clear when we were supposed to be moving - that could be have been a technical fault with his audio equipment, but it did make the tour more stressful. For anyone who, like me, wants to watch the entire ceremony, I suggest you get a taxi down the mall about an hour before the changing of the guard is due to start rather than choose this tour. My sons had been really looking forward to watching this and we were all incredibly disappointed with what we were allowed to see. If we hadn't have been issued audio equipment that we were told we must return to the bus, we would have dropped out of the tour and remained at the palace to see the change occur.
My 3 star rating reflects the fact that the bus was on time, the guide was pleasant and the driver did manage to get us to the palace on time despite the traffic. The tour itself was disappointing-
Tour was a great disappointment. We expected to be at Buckingham Palace in time to see the Changing of the Guard ceremony as advertised . In fact we had a lovely view of the backs of the heads of the people who did get to see the ceremony. We will not book with this company again.
The tour was great.John,the driver,was a mindful of information.I definitely recommend the tour,driver and coach company.
The tour guide was informative and the bus was clean. The guide took us to the best area to see the guards marching. It was a full bus tour with about 45 people. We made several stops throughout the morning to see sights.

A lot of fun, saw some cool sights especially Roslyn. Although calling this a DaVinci tour is really a misnomer, there was really no mention of the book or movie except to say Roslyn was where some of it was filmed and Roslyn now has a large visitor center due to divine provenience a.k.a. having thousands and thousands of DaVinci tourists entry fees.
We were unable to take tour. Meeting point was too far away from the port and we didn't know about the time constraints of getting from the ship, etc. So sorry we missed it.

Marvelous and uplifting experience. It's really old but beautiful
very good tour with a driver who helped to make the trip an enjoyable event. The restaurant suggestions for lunch were excellent. His willingness to involve all the passengers in conversation was commendable.

Excellent! Well worth it. The guide was entertaining and knowledgable . they used radios and ear buds to communicated with us when we weren't on the bus. We could hear without being next to the guide and didn't have to find them in the crowd by the stick they other tour guides had to hold in the air.

Brilliant trip and great guide, Catty.
We had a fabulous time! I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, John, was the best! He gave us a lot of history while we drove and kept everyone interested!
