I absolutely loved this tour. Rosslyn Chapel is amazing. We arrived and were lucky to take part in a talk by one of the workers. This really helped us appreciate the site. Would highly recommend.
What a great day!!! Great drive and really interesting tour. The small Roslyn Chapel was so welcoming and exquisite. The Melrose Abbey ruins are some of the best of Henry VIII's destructive stupidity. I liked the walk into the William Wallace Statue and the statue itself. Great views of the borders.
Great view during drive and sights at stops/locations, knowledgeable and pleasant driver/ tour guide one person did both Vans used are very nice, clean and modern, however if you're not a small or skinny person the width of the seats are very uncomfortable if sitting next to someone more narrow than aircraft seats when you fly if that gives you a hint can't even fasten seat belt without leaning sideways to latch, I'm not small but far from huge 6' average build for that height in my 50's, same for my wife and son, the larger buses I've ridden in most tours before weren't as narrow and at least allowed the aisle seat to slide out for more room, these don't.
I have to say that Pete made this trip. He was hilarious. Such a great guide, loads of energy, a good laugh, great stories and just kept the whole day alive and going really well. As a result we really enjoyed it. Cheers Pete!!
Tour was very good, made more enjoyable by our guide, Jan.
I would suggest more time @ Rosslyn chapel. After 3pm overview by the guide, here was only 15 min to further browse gift shop etc.
Wonderful tour! Bob our guide was really good and made the trip so much more interesting. Very scenic, beautiful and historic.
Was not exactly sure what to expect for this tour but was pleasantly surprised! Melrose Abbey exceeded my expectations, as did Rosslyn Chapel. Was a little weird that we had to pay for each separately but it was well worth it! Also good to know that Rabbis conducts tours even for one person.
The folks from Rabbies were super. Really enjoyed all the stops. Great tour.
We were the only ones booked this day so had a private tour, no additional cost, and the driver from Robbies was wonderful, informative, and loves his town and truly knows his history. He was a true xelight and took a few side trips for us since we did not mind. Would truly recommend this company to anyone going to Edinburg.
Great tour and guide. Very private group, there was only 2 of us. Plenty of time to see all the sites. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about Scottish history and gave us great insight.
It was a wonderful tour! Not too much time in the van and plenty of time to see Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel with the option of time flexibility as well! Our tour guide (Audrey) was very knowledgeable and vivacious. It was a fabulous day all around.
Rabbies is the tour operator. small group and bus which makes it all the more personal. Heather was our driver/guide and very knowledgeable on Scottish history and great story teller. Visited Melrose Abby where Robert The Bruce's heart is. Climbed the steps to the top of the spire, great view. Visited one of the "Wallace" Statues/Monuments (not the main one in Stirling). Then onto Roslyn Chapel, absolutely beautiful. A most enjoyable day.
Jayne was a great guide! I enjoyed her stories and learned a lot on the trip! I enjoyed all of the stops.
We loved the tour, the guide everything. Unfortunately that day the van where we were traveling had a problem and we stayed for a while on the road. But the driver worked it out wonderfully, being nice, fun and soon we were on track. The tour was wonderful. Thanks a lot, We would love to do more next time we visit UK.
Wonderful tour! Our tour guide, Dave, was fabulous and added so much to the tour- including history and humor! Another nice touch he added was music! Truly one the highlights of our entire vacation! Thank you!
Very interesting tour! My guide Bob was wonderful and very personable and informative. Rosslyn Chapel was absolutely stunning and had so much to look at. Very easy to lose track of time. The tour operator is a wonderful company and I'm glad I booked all of my tours with them. It was a great experience.
We really enjoyed this trip. Our guide (Davie-boy to his friends) was informative, organized, professional, and very amusing. His commentary on the history of the Borders area added a great deal to the experience, and he readily responded to our group's questions and comments. The scenery was stunningly beautiful, the stops well timed, and Roslyn Chapel is a 'must-see'.
The small Rabbies tour group was the perfect size for this trip. Our guide was full of information, stories and was a lot of fun. They should rename the tour though, as it really has nothing to do with the DaVinci Code.
This was amazing and our guide David was out of this world! He was entertaining and so so helpful! He took us back to the cruise ship when we missed the last transfer!!! How special is that. Thank you Dave again!!!! We really got a feel for the Scottish history because of Dave.. Go Dave I am your biggest fan!
Really enjoyed Roslyn chapel and our guide Dave was very good. He was informative and a lot of fun. The scenery of the border area was beautiful. Perhaps a little too much time in Melrose but the tour was great overall and well worth doing.
