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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
