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!

The chapel and whole trip were really beautiful. The visit and whisky tasking in Glenkinchie distillery were just a cherry on top of a cake :

Very good tour! Paul was very knowledgeable! We loved Rosslyn Chapel and the Melrose Abbey. Also, it was very cool to learn about the hospital at Soutra Aisle.

Paul, our driver was the best. Very well spoken and had a lot of history and personnel experience to share. We got a lot more than what was advertised. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

This is a beautiful chapel. We didn't read the exclusions which is our fault, so be prepared to pay to get into the chapel and the distillery it was pricey. The price you pay is just for the bus ride. The scenery is just gorgeous!

My husband and I enjoyed this trip to the Scottish Borders. We had a marvelous red-headed tour guide, Gillian. Since she lived in the area of the Borders we were visiting, she was very knowledgeable. The visit to the Chapel was great, beautiful and a wonder. How could it could have been constructed without modern tools. The trip to the distillery was also very interesting. The process of making whisky explained, samples enjoyed, and great displays and gifts. I bought the tiniest bottle of whisky, which I gave to our B and B master for his emergency use. He joyously showed it to the other guests. We saw lots of gorse, a yellow flowering bush found through much of Scotland.
