Wow... if you are into history, this is a fantastic tour... Don was an excellent guide and provided bits of history and music along the ways. Rosslyn Chapel is an amazing piece of history, the guides in the Chapel were well into the Christmas spirit, and the staff was polite. Yes this is where the Di Vinci Code was filmed, but it is so much more than just a film location. Take time to enjoy the different carvings and find the little details that make this a treasure! Melrose Abbey ruin is also very beautiful and you can spend time running around and seeing the ruins and cemetery from different angles, and find a few surprises along the way.
Hadrian's wall is a bit of a walk, which seems much longer in cold biting winds, but well worth the effort to see the information on the fort, and the Roman influence in the area. The date I booked this tour for did not have enough people but I was contacted in enough time to switch two tours around and made both. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great memories!!!!

Angela was truly an amazing guide. She made the day for us with her knowledge of history, sharing of music and stories that prepared us for what we were to see. The day passed by so quickly.

This is an amazing tour! Rosslyn Chapel was beautifully unique on its own. A must see! Hadrian's wall was very cold at this time so make sure to check the weather so you can dress appropriately. It is about a mile walk going to the wall. Melrose Abbey was also eerily beautiful. This is basically a tour of Southern Scotland. So many stops and so many wonderful things to see.

Excellent tour, beautiful Mercedes van/vehicle and very knowledgeable
driver/escort. You get a lot for your money. Plenty of time at Rosslyn Chapel and plenty of time to explore Hadrian's wall.

This tour was great! I had no idea what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised. Niall was an absolutely wonderful guide--good-humored and knowledgable, and very careful to check in with everyone to make sure they were comfortable and had what they needed. It was a jam-packed day, but looking back, nothing felt rushed lots of wonderful scenery, gorgeous ruins, historical tidbits and fun stories. A great way to spend a day!

From William the cat at Rosslyn to the sheep at Hadrian's wall. Maybe the Abbey at Jedburg was the most interesting of all. Great tour guide. Small group of 16 was ideal. Weather was horrible but it didn't dampen my spirits. I should have enjoyed a longer lunch break. I didn't have time to visit the rugby shop at Melrose or fully enjoy the abbey. The aqueduct at Leadersfoot. Yep. Do it.
