If you book this tour, ask for Graham as your driver. Graham provides a safe, very informative, and funny tour. The stops at Rosslyn Chapel, Melrose Abbey, and Hadrian’s Wall are excellent with ample time to explore the site. The 16-passenger bus is just right for size of the group and size of the bus to negotiate the narrow roads. The path to the museum and site at Hadrian’s Wall is steep, so that might be a challenge to some.

Our trip to Rosslyn Chapel, Hadrian's Wall and the Melrose Abbey was a day very well spent. The tour driver/guide was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and above all fun. The times allotted for the visits to three sites were sufficient to cover those sites. Furthermore, the travel through the south lands and the border areas to see these attractions were breathtaking. I would highly recommend this tour!

My guide was Angela and she made this trip the best I’ve ever tried.The attractions were beautiful as expected, but what really made the trip great was Angela’s countless, educational and intriguing stories about witches, Jacobites, Romans etc. She managed to keep everything she said relevant as well as the perfect amount of fun and educational. She also supplied the trip with very suitable music that offered well-timed breaks where you could relax, enjoy and still learn something through the soothing tones of the traditional music.The length of the trip and the pauses were great, and Angela even added a few additional photo spots; which were quite satisfactory.Overall it was a fantastic trip, which I give my warmest recommendations!

Rosslyn chapel was awesome unfortunately an accident closed the road to hadrian's wall. Our tour guide tried to find other ways to get there but an alternative was impractical due to time. He worked with his company, offered alternative sights for us and truly delivered in a challenging situation. In the end, without asking, the tour company refunded half of our money before we arrived back from the tour. Wonderful company to do business with, I highly reccomend the tour and the company.

- excursie minunata si foarte echilibrata
- din nou un ghid incredibil. Chiar nu inteleg de unde gasesc acesti oameni culti, carismatici, plini de umor
- as repeta oricand acest tur

We had a wonderful day on this outing with Gregor. He was very knowledgeable about the area and told us many additional facts along with lots of folklore. Great day trip - worthwhile for sure!

Our driver, Angela, made this a wonderful day. Her love of Scotland and Harry Potter was delightful. Her patter was non-stop and we loved every minute of it. The Rosslyn Chapel docent gave a terrific talk about the carvings, the castle ruins were 'spooky and our lunch stop was fun and just the right amount of time. We enjoyed walking on Hadrian's wall and avoiding all the sheep. I highly recommend this day trip yeah Edinburgh!!!!!!!!, ask for Angela.

Tour was great - comfortable and well organized. Wish we had a bit more time at Hadrian's wall and less free time at the lunch break.
