Let me start by saying how appreciative I am of the way that Rabbie's does business. My wife and I were the only 2 people on this tour and they didn't cancel it. Their policy is that if they have a tour, and even one person pays for it, that tour is going to happen. That is customer service.
Our tour guide was Dougie. He was one of the very best tour guides we've ever had. Dougie is very knowledgable about the area and could answer any questions my wife or I asked. Since this was basically a private tour, we were able to discus anything we wanted to.
As for the tour itself, if you are into history this is a fabulous tour to take. Melrose Abby was beautiful. There is so much history there. Rosslyn Chapel was the highlight of my entire vacation. There was a girl there names Rene. She was our guide at the Chapel. She spent about an hour with us and answered every question we could think of. We couldn't get enough of it.
A long the way Dougie stopped everywhere that we wanted to take picture or get a closer look of. The restaurant that he recommended was fantastic as well. We couldn't get enough of this tour. It was difficult for he rest of our holiday to live up to this. Well done Rabbie's and Viator
This was a wonderful opportunity to learn more history and visit parts of beautiful Scotland that we might have missed. Ewan B. was an entertaining and knowledgable guide.
An excellent day - very well balanced with delightful small roads followed leading to locations of real historic and scenic interest. The driver of our small coach displayed a passion and expertise in the historical backdrop to the locations we visited.
Had a great tour on 11/15/15 I believe Jim was our guide and was very informative and amusing. I was blown away by the countryside as well as all the sights on this tour. It runs a perfect amount of time to see everything without being too long on the bus. Melrose was a charming town but all the stores were closed due to it being a Sunday.
Interesting trip through the Scottish borderland. The tour guide was interesting and very informative. Rosslyn Chapel was the highlight of the trip.
Great tour. Our guide, Gordon, did an excellent job, provided plenty of time to see the various sites, and was very informative. Would recommend this tour.
Our guide told us the history of Scotland and the borders while driving us around the beautiful countryside. She took pictures for us, answered questions and advised us on the best places to get a quick lunch and find toilets, very helpful. We visited a William Wallace Statue, Melrose Abby and Rosslyn Chapel. Photos are banned inside of Rosslyn Chapel. I wish we had more time at Rosslyn Chapel.
Our tour guide Stephen really made the day. As we travelled around he explained the history of the countryside we passed through in an engaging interesting way. We had enough time at our main stops, Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel. The whole day was professionally organised.
Thanks for a wonderful day.
Absoultely perfect day. I cannot say enough about this company and their guide. She was terrific.
A great tour. Seeing Rosslyn Chapel and Melrose Abbey was on my to do list for sure and they did not fail to impress. Our tour guide/driver Gillian was very knowledgeable, down to earth and funny. Overall a great day out listening to great stories and good music!
Neil, our driver was very informative, without being overly talky. He was an excellent driver. He gave us a short drive around Melrose so we knew all the lunch choices. I would recommend this tour to my friends.
Loved it! Our tour driver was extremely informative and seemed to really have an interest in Scottish history. That made the trip so much more enjoyable
A great trip. Rosslyn Chapel is one of a kind and a place you don't want to miss seeing. Our guide and driver Joe was great. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and a great safe driver.
Roslyn Chapel visit was all I hoped it would be. Melrose also a great stop for pics and lunch. Our driver, Joe, was very knowledgeable and helpful.
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.
