Excellent day trip from Edinburgh. We had a lovely friendly guide/driver who told us all about the local history of the places we went to and gave us plenty of time to look around. Rosslyn Chapel was very interesting and a little bit spooky. You can't take photos inside the Chapel unfortunately. It was great visiting the Roman fort and Hadrians Wall, however guests should know that it is a considerable uphill walk to get to the wall and fort. A couple of unfit people in our group couldn't make it up. I really enjoyed this day trip.

Great tour. Our guide Helen was awesome. She was personable, very knowledgeable of the history of the whole area and offered to take some pictures for me since I for forgot my camera. I took four tours while in Scotland and this was by far the best one.

I loved this trip, the local guide Nial was very good - friendly, smiling, told us many stories about Scotland so time on the bus was not boring. In addition, comparing to the other tours I think its very convenient to have a smaller bus. I liked that we had enough time at all stops we made and it was very comfortable pace as for my taste.
Rosslyn Chapel is very interesting place, I am personally not found of catholic religious places since they all look more or less similar but this one has impressive old carvings and good design in general.
There are also ruins of Roslyn castle nearby, not so much to see left but anyway nice to have a glance.
Hadrian's Wall gave me a bit mixed feeling. It iis a great construction since it s very long and kind of impressive how Romans decided to control the border but in general it is not so much to see - imagine a stone wall in a field- that's basically it. There is a fort, where the tour goes to, and museum where you can read about history and the place in general. I found it very informative and since we were very lucky with the weather - we had a nice walk.
