This tour was great, David was an amazing guide. Our ride was filled with interesting facts and stories about the places we were passing and visiting! The only downside was due to the tide, we only had about 30-40 minutes at the Holy Island, but it was worth the visit! Alnwick Castle was beautiful!
We were very happy with this tour. The driver/guide David I think, was just great. Told us a lot of stories and history, funny and very nice.
This was a great tour to Holy Island and Alnwick Castle. Both sites were great to see but it would have been nice to spend more time on Holy Island to go through the castle. It was a lager bus but still well organized and the driver was really nice.
absolutely loved it! The sights were beautiful and our driver was funny, attentive and very kind. 10 out of 10!
Rose did an excellent job driving the bus and narrating the tour.even though zeal wick castle was closed she took us to several other places that were very interesting. Her knowledge of the area and its history and folklore was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this tour . R. Carlson
Rose was spectacular!!! Her knowledge of history was very insightful and the combination of story telling and music made the tour quite exceptional!
I found the trip to Holy Island and Alnwick Castle excellent and the driver, David, was full of energy and personality, coupled with an excellent commentary. The day seemed to fly by. I would have liked more time on Holy Island as early Christianity is an interest of mine, but perhaps others would rather the castle which I did find interesting. All in all, a wonderful tour, full of interesting tidbits of history and enjoyment.

The tour was great and I highly recommend it. The tour started promptly and our guide/driver was excellent. I would have liked to have arrived earlier to Alnwick Castle in order to take one of the guided tours of the castle. Our arrival time there did not allow this, so we did a selfguided tour. Overall the trip was excellent experience!
David was great he made the trip entertaining and kept us on schedule! We covered alot and this tour was the best tour on our trip!
Holy island was beautiful! Alnwick castle was impressive and the activities were entertaining!
Very nice driver/tour guide Eric. Beautiful scenery, interesting places to visit!
Excellent Scottish tour guide who provided history and information on the sites we visited. Fantastic tour of Holy Island and Ainwick Castle!! We loved it!
Wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL! Great info as we were heading to a place, plenty of time at each place, and fascinating background and stories in between. We highly recommend this tour, even for muggles!
David was an amazing tour guide. He was funny and had a lot of stories and background knowledge. All the places were beautiful.
Vers nice tour. The driver had all the relevant information, and knew the history of the area vers well.
It was a joy to attend this tour.
I am quite pleased with our tour and guide David. We were most fortunate to also have lovely weather the entire week. Holy Island was beautiful- I could see booking a B and B there. Alnwick castle and the town was charming. David and #39;s knowledge of the history and land was excellent. Would do again!
This was a great tour. Our guide Rose was amazing. She was a great storyteller. She played music that was wonderful and shared her music with us via email. I highly recommend this tour!!!
Rose was a star and she really went that extra mile for us. It was brilliant. Would have liked longer on Holy Island but I can always go back!!
We enjoyed this all day tour. Our guide Rose made the history of each place come alive with her great storytelling interspersed with thematic Scotch music from folk to modern. Remind patrons that discounted tickets are available.
The Holy Island was amazing! The fact that you can only explore the island when the tides are out is unique. The castle and cathedral ruins are a photographer's dream. Alnwick castle is huge and you can only do parts of all the activities that are offered. A very professional tour with time to explore both sites.
It is a pity we didnt have more time in the Holy Island, the place is just magical. Altwich castle is worth visiting, but the discount should be bigger bearing in mind what yoy pay for the excursion. Generally speaking, it was a great day.
Beautiful locations and friendly guide.
Only wish is for more time at the main locations, though hardly possible given the distance to travel.
My biggest complaint was the tickets for Alnwick Castle. We purchased our own online to save money instead of paying full price on-site, only to find out that the tour operator could get heavy discounts the day of!
David was our guide and driver. He was very informative and explanatory! I'll give him 10 stars.
The single small issue I had with the Alnwick Castle that was nothing interesting about it. I'm not a Harry Potter fun and may be that is why.
