This was such an amazing tour. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Scotland's monuments and history. Even though the journey between stops was lengthy in parts, he had a lot of interesting tidbits about the surrounding landscape and towns and entertained us with lots of Scottish music. Rosslyn Chapel is a must to see, with its fascinating carvings and rich history, and its use in the Da Vinci Code (though they don't focus much on this). Hadrian's wall was also fantastic piece of history and there is plenty of time to explore. You stop in a couple of quaint towns as well, and if time, at couple of extra interesting viewpoints like the Scottish/English border. For those concerned about taking this tour while COVID is a risk, it felt very safe to us; the tour guide sanitised the bus regularly and we were well spread out from other guests. Rosslyn Chapel was actually less crowded due to restrictions as well which was great.

Had a wonderful time on this tour! While the destinations were wonderful and exactly what I was expecting, it was the driver and tour guide, Iain, who was the best part of this day and reason for the 5 stars. He was extremely knowledgeable of English and Scottish history which was an excellent addition to the tour. He was warm, funny, safe driver, and also played enjoyable music that fit with the overall theme of the tour. Overall, would recommend!

The tour was really amazing- it's realy worth of the money. Our guide Andrew was very nice, provided us a lot of interesting facts about the Scotland. I really recomment thos great tour to everyone who loves art and history. Melrose abbey was like from Game of Thrones we would just appreciate more time spend there. Thank you once again for this experience

The tour was a great experience, even though it rained most of the day, we were able to see the Rosslyn chapel and visit the little town of Melrose, the distillery was very entertaining too! Our guide, Paul B, had great stories and kept us well informed all through the drive to and from every place we visited.

The tour was great. Small group of 6. Comfortable car. Positive and storytelling guide Iran (hope I spelled name correct) Everything in time. Good for adults, not sure about the kids under 10. On the way back home we were enjoying very authentic local music. I liked it very much.
