We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The positives for us was the small group, plenty of time to visit the sites, and the fact that Da Vinci Code was a minimal part of the tour. We were more interested in visiting Rosslyn Chapel for its historical significance than its inclusion in "that fictional book" and in seeing some of the Borders country. Our driver/guide was interesting and informative. Well done!

Loved the tour, loved the guide David. He was very informative, figured he must have been a history major with all the information that he shared. Tour bus was very comfortable and clean. Staff at Rabbis were very professional. Thank you for making our trip perfect.

Our driver "Eric" was excellent. We saw beautiful countryside, stopped at the William Wallace statue, had lunch in Melrose and then went to the Rosslyn chapel. I liked the smaller bus (16 passenger).

THis was a great tour. Lots of amazing scenery and ruins, plus Scottish history and lunch in a cute village. We bought food from the grocery store and had a picnic on the Melrose Abbey grounds.

Tabbies was wonderful. Our guide was from the Boarderlands and really made the trip.

The driver was a gem. He knew tons about almost anything you asked. His knowledge and ability to describe Scottish history is a national treasure. He included a small town in the tour for lunch (Melrose), which was an absolute gem. We loved it!! The chapel was interesting, but the lecturer didn't discuss several items tourists might find interesting, such as the connection to the Templars. She did provide several other interesting stories. You can't take photos in the chapel because the trust doesn't want you to. That was disappointing. We learned a ton about Scottish border history.

A very interesting trip to the Borders. We learned so much about the history of the area and enjoyed both Melrose abbey and Roslyn Chapel.

We Loved this tour!
Our guide was very informative. I just wish we had more time at the Abbey....we opted to eat first, then went in. But we feel if we went into the Abbey first then we wouldn't have been able to have lunch.
What a beautiful setting. Rosslyn Chapel was such a quaint, spiritual place to visit. There is a sense of calmness when you walk in...and it was nice to see that ALL of the visitors were respectful and adhered to the request to not take photos inside the Chapel.

We choose this tour because of the small group and it was an area we wished to see. The driver Dave was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and made us feel like we were with a friend telling us about the history and scenery. It was perfect for me as I can not walk fast and keep up with large groups. Thank you for offering small group trips.

Excellent tour on a cold and rainy day. Dave was a great entertainer and guide, providing stories of his youth and other local legends ("Marmalade, Bereavement and Blackmail"). Stops and Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel were perfect.
