We enjoyed our tour of Melrose Abbey and Alnwick Castle very much.

Being huge Harry Potter fans, we were very anxious to see Alnwick castle and it did not disappoint. We spent the day touring the gardens and castle at Alnwick, the hauntingly beautiful Melrose Abbey, Bamburgh Castle, the Tweed River Bridge and a few other places. Our guide was Gary and we had a lot of fun listening to his many stories about Scotland & England, the monarchs, wars, the castles and the history of the area. We learned a lot and enjoyed his stories told with humour and passion for the country. Gary was great to answer our questions and willing to stop for photos along the way. We had a very full, interesting and fun day and were very glad we had signed up. Thanks for the great day Gary.

It was an interesting journey filled with intriguing history

I would had preferred to have had the entry tickets for Alnwick included in the total price instead of having to pay more upon arrival. The Lindisfarne visit was a bit shorter then what i would had liked but still offered a brief insight into the history of the island. The tide might have been the the cause for that though. Alnwick offered nice scenic views and interesting objects on display in the Fusilier museum and the stateroom. All in all, a good day.

Tour guide was great! Attractions better suited for the fully-abled.

Niel was wonderful. I found Alnwick very cheesy and hype-centered; I wish I'd done the gardens instead of the castle. As a mildly disabled person, I found parts of this tour too lengthy to complete within the time given, and I did not attempt the lengthy walks to/around the castles either on the Holy Island or the last castle of the day. I took my photos from a distance. Alnwick also involved a large amount of walking.

Stunning countryside and magnificent castle

We drove down to the castle from Edinburgh and had 3 hours in the castle. Paul, our guide, was right it was not enough time as there is so much to see. Missed out on the archery and the broomstick lessons but the castle rooms are magnificent. Only thing that would have made it better would be audio guides. Th drive back to Edinbugh was via the coast, which was really beautiful. Thanks Paul!

A living castle and a tidal island all in a days time.

The quick trip down to Alnwick was great as we had lots of time to explore the castle grounds, gardens, and the tree house all on the same property. Exploring some of the living quarters of the castle was amazing to see how Dukes and Earls have lived throughout history. On top of the that you can see some spots that were used in movies like Harry Potter and Tv's Downtown Abbey.
