This tour was great! Our tour guide, Marty, had loads of knowledge to share and had a great sense of humor. The tour agenda was perfectly planned and timed. Would definitely plan other tours with them. Thanks!

This trip is a must see. Our tour guide was Gregor. He was dressed as a true Scot in his outfit. Was great to be able to experience seeing someone wear a kilt and work! Rosslyn Chapel had so much history. The guides within the chapel were very knowledgeable. I thought it was interesting to find out why they had a cat in the chapel, too! The added history of the Scottish borders was a treat and the stops to take pictures were greatly appreciated. I am not a whisky person but I truly enjoyed Glenkinchie Distillery. I even sampled some of the whisky during the taste test. It is amazing to see how these guides can take you to the most remote spots in those tour buses. Gregor was a pleasant guide to be with the entire day. He made sure that everyone felt welcome!

We were lucky to have Erik as our driver guide - he has an amazing background, was fun and very knowledable. Loved his personnally chosen sound track for the trip... added a lot. Distillery tour was excellent, and the Chapel was very different and the guides provided some interesting historical insights. Well worth the trip!

Gregor ws an excellent guide as we visited sites on this tour. He provided bits of Scottish history and music as we traveled to beautiful Rosslyn Chapel and to the border town of Melrose. We had a lot of time to leisurely explore the town and visit the abbey. Our visit to Glenkinchie allowed us to sample the water of life.

Fantastic Tour made even better by our guide Eric. He was so knowledgeable and funny and made the trip just perfect- despite the heavy rain! The Rosslyn Chapel was beautiful and enchanting - just wish we could have taken pictures, but totally understand since our admission/shop purchases helps with the conservation of Rosslyn Chapel. Next stop was the town of Melrose for lunch and the abbey. Truly amazing! The town is so cute and wonderful places to eat but the star is the Melrose Abbey. It was on my must-do list and even in the downpour, I loved every minute of it. Last, but definitely not least was the Glenkinchie Distillery. Even though the tour was more corporate owned by Diageo than others we visit, the tour and guide where still delightful. The tasting was wee, but good enough that we still bought! Highly recommend this tour and if you can get Eric, you are in for a treat!
