Saw everything as promised. Had plenty of time at each site. Frequent breaks to walk, eat and sight see. Knowledgeable guide.
The tour was great- the guide was funny and personable and very knowledgeable. The format was vert good- taking people to places they wanted to see and giving them time to see what they wanted with no pressure to shop or eat at any particular place. The only dowside was that the bus was a bit cramped for people with longer legs.
Where to begin I guess with the guide he was very passionate about his beloved Scotland as well as being very well informed. We headed off through the beautiful Scottish Border countryside towards our first stop which was Melrose a very pretty little town with a very interesting Abbey.We had a couple of stops along the way one to see The Statue of "Wallace" and our guide played us a couple of tunes on his bagpipes it was really great. After Lunch in a cute local restaurant we headed off to Rosslyn Chapel with a couple of little stops along the way ths chapel was the site of parts of The Da Vinci Code. We headed back to Edinburgh after a very interesting day would highly recommend this trip.
Brilliant Tour! Our guide "Mac like the hamburger" was great, very informative and had a great scense of humour! We had a great day and highly recommend!
Al was an excellent tour guide - very well-informed and happy to share his knowledge of the sites we visited (as well as anything else we asked about). Most importantly, he seemed far more concerned about making sure everyone got their money's worth on the tour than rushing us from place to place as quickly as possible. Great experience and I would definitely recommend for anyone!
The tour was fantastic to scenery is amazing and our tour guide was a proud Scottsman who was really informative, kind and very knowlegable. This is a great tour to take
Very nice trip, we enjoyed it very much. Enough time at locations. Our guide is a very pleasant tour guide who did his very best to entertain us with lots of information and nice music. He is a very good and relaxed driver, no hurry and speeding. We recommend this trip to anyone.
It was a great day our guide Mac was great but I don't know why it is called the da Vinci code trip and was disappointed that the entry fee to Roslyn wasn't included
The stops on this trips are excellent and visiting the chapel was especially interesting.
Excellent trip! Great guide! We did 3 tours in Edinburgh through Viator. All 3 were great and I'd do them again. Go inside the Abby and take the tour. Its very interesting.
Loved this day trip. The borders area of Scotland is breathtaking. Our tourguides Bob and Doug were amazing and kept us educated and entertained. While the main reason we went was to see Rosslyn Chapel, Melrose Abbey was so much more impressive and I loved it so much more! Such a great way to see some amazing scenery and some amazing historic sites!!!!!
I enjoyed this tour a lot. I love history and seeing both the Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel was a great experience. Our guide was very good and well informed.
Although Edinburgh and all of Scotland were experiencing heavy rainfall, the tour went on as scheduled. We really enjoyed the small group tour and would recommend this to anyone who asked. The driver was very well versed in Scottish History and he gave us a good dose of it while traveling from place to place. The ruins of Melrose Abbey were spectacular to see and the travel through the towns near the border fascinating. The highlight was Rosslyn Chapel. We could have spent more time here, but enjoyed the whole day. Although we did know ahead of time some of those on the tour were surprised to find they had to pay entry fees into these two sites. Well worth it, though!
