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.

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.

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.

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.
