The Chapel is intricately beautiful and Stirling Castle is well worth your time. However, our guide Nick was not clear in his directions, and we were also late for 2 local guides out of 3 and were not compensated for it by Nick in any way. Had we not ventured into Rosslyn on our own against Nick's directions, to study the architecture, we would have missed out on the glorious details within the artwork itself.
Obviously I let myself be fooled by the Da Vinci code, but in fact I expected the visit to Rosslyn's chapel to be much more exciting!
Anyway, the tour was good and Scotland is my fav place in the world, so I liked it anyway.
This was a very well timed tour with a number of very interesting stops. Stirling Castle was the highlight and there was sufficient time for a full tour. Great photo opportunities except for Roslyn Chapel which did not allow any photos inside the chapel. This was a bit disappointing and was not indicated in the tour information.
Get your fix of Scottish history on this small group day excursion!
I enjoyed exploring and learned a lot. The amount of time we spent at each place was reasonable. Going on a small group tour is a plus. Steven B was a knowledgable driver/guide. We got the real history behind the movie "Braveheart" and Robert the Bruce.
If you have a limited amount of time in Edinburgh, I recommend this tour!
David our bus driver and historical tour guide as we were driving was amazing. All the sites were incredible and our driver kept us entertained throughout our journey. We were never bored and so glad we had such a outstanding tour experience. This was our second tour with this company because our first tour with them was incredible.
