    I had a brilliant time on this tour. Stirling Castle and Dunfermline Abbey were amazing to see but the highlight was Rosslyn Chapel. Absolutely stunning, inside and out. Had a good amount of time at each place, didn't feel rushed at all. Driver was ok, gave some good history and played Scottish music which was great.

    We thought the itinerary was good, allowing just the right amount of time in each place.
    The guide was very nice, but could have been more informative with more detailed information about the places we were going to visit as we drove from one place to another.

    Attractions were great BUT driver left an enormous amount to be desired. This was JOHN’S first time doing this tour...he walked us in the wrong way at the Abbey so we walked COMPLETELY around the place in the cold and wet. Had to ask another driver where to park at the Battlefield stop. When asked what the chapel would be like...”I don’t know anything about it. They’ll tell you inside”. It seems HE or the company would have required him to do at least one drive to know what he was doing and he would have taken the initiative to find out something about the places. Also....absolutely no narrative on the whole drive. Dead silence. Please pull JOHN. He seems very nice, but he needs further training or another assignment.

    Steven B. gave us a lot of information and we viewed numerous sites. Bus was comfortable and we kept to schedule without being stressed. Nice time.

    The driver was informative as to history location. He got us to our locations comfortable and in timely manner. I wish the cost of location had been included, not a big thing
