What a lovely day we had! The tour was a rather small group of delightful people from all over, and we felt right at home. Our guide Greg was absolutely the key to enjoying the sights. Not only was he professional and very knowledgeable, but he was also pleasant and accommodating throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this tour while visiting Scotland.

Greg is the ultimate guide. Very professional. Great stories with history, myth, legend mixed in. And lots of good Scottish humor.

We had a great day with our guide, I think his name was Steven B. The only part we would change is we would prefer to not stop at the bridges and see the Kelpies instead or have more time at Rosselyn Chapel. Rosselyn was the only site we felt rushed and would have liked about 15 more minutes. Overall though this was a perfect day trip. The driver gave lots of stories and history on the way and added some local culture with music and it was a lot of fun. We would go with this driver and this type of tour again for sure.

Loved the humor of Russ and friendly driver Fran. Abbey was under construction so hard to hear the lady tell about the vast history what you could hear was interesting. Stirling Castle has a lot of history, the young girl who was a guide did a fine job of explaining the time period and answering questions that we had. The icing on the cake was Rosslyn Chapel. Just PLAIN Beautiful and it's history, the lady gave a wonderful insite to this Beauty. Russ gave a history lesson of each site and interesting facts along the way to each area that made this trip wonderful to enjoy for the day.

Had the best day trip! Dunfermline Abby was very cool with a very informative talk via someone that worked there. Saw where Robert the Bruces body was buried as well as William Wallaces mother. Gary was filled with great jokes all the way making the trip very fun. Stirling castle was quite impressive and I was glad there was hot food served. I had chicken and vegetables. I got the audio guide and walked around the castle listening to the history. Rosslyn Chapel was amazing as well. Enjoyed the history talk there and walked the grounds. Definitely recommend. Gary is the best guide I’ve had all trip!

I would recommend this trip to anybody interested in the history of Scotland. It was very interesting to see the battle place and learn about Robert the Bruce. Stirling Castle was a revelation too.

David our bus driver and historical tour guide as we were driving was amazing. All the sites were incredible and our driver kept us entertained throughout our journey. We were never bored and so glad we had such a outstanding tour experience. This was our second tour with this company because our first tour with them was incredible.

Get your fix of Scottish history on this small group day excursion! I enjoyed exploring and learned a lot. The amount of time we spent at each place was reasonable. Going on a small group tour is a plus. Steven B was a knowledgable driver/guide. We got the real history behind the movie "Braveheart" and Robert the Bruce. If you have a limited amount of time in Edinburgh, I recommend this tour!

We had an excellent time with Garry who is a very knowledgeable and funny guy. Would do it again just for the Dad jokes :)

This is an excellent tour of three fascinating sites, although it seemed a bit rushed. Wished we had head more time at the abbey and Stirling Castle. Brendan is quite entertaining.

Wow! What a great tour we had! We thoroughly enjoyed all the stops and most of all our guide, Russell! He was so charming, authentic and hilarious! His tales were so well told and his humor was spot on. The stops were fantastic and I felt we had just the right amount of time for each. These particular places are spectacular and we felt our time was well spent on this tour. It allowed us to see many sites we would otherwise not have been able to see in that amount of time. Russell also made sure we had enough spots to stop and use a bathroom or grab a snack. If you’re from America, I will say Russell is the Bob Ross of Touring! Calm, kind and funny. His soothing voice and tone will charm you! Enjoy! Can’t wait to return to Edinburgh and hopefully get on another one of his tours!
