Traveler Tips


  • "Be aware it’s a bit of an uphill hike to the main area of the wall and fort so you may want to reconsider if you have a physical infirmity." See review
  • "Take advantage of all visited sites and make sure you've got on a good pair of shoes- by the end of the day, we did over 22k steps on my fitbit!" See review
  • "It may be a good stop to use restrooms but 30 min for a long day was just excessive." See review

Keith was simply a wonderful tour guide! From the start of the tour he made us feel welcome and he answered all of our random questions along the way. His knowledge of the area and its history were captivating. The wee bus is a great size. Just the right size to comfortably fit 15 people. There was plenty of time to explore Roslyn’s Chapel and Hadrian’s wall. We stopped in Melrose and has plenty of time to enjoy a lovely sit down lunch. A perfect day from start to finish!

Great scenic drive and sites.

This was a nice drive full of great scenic views. Just be aware, the cost does not include the abbeys and Hadrian's Wall center. If you have a Historic Scotland Membership, you can use it to get into Melrose Abbey for free and you also get discounts at the shops. You also get a discount at the Hadrian's Wall because it's an English Heritage site..

Tour with Some Nice Surprises
Lewis_W

We were most looking forward to the Hadrian’s Wall experience, but Rosslyn Chapel blew us away with its detailed and unique architecture. Melrose was a wonderfully quaint and picturesque town where we enjoyed a delightful Scottish lunch (from The Bakehouse - check it out!). And Hadrian’s Wall/Housesteads Roman Fort did NOT disappoint! One more thing: the Scottish countryside, coming and going, was beautiful. Great experience!

Long day, but worth it!

We had a lovely day in the Scottish countryside. The stops at Roslyn Chapel and Hadrian's Wall were our main focus, of course, but our driver Howard had some other stops planned along the way for stretching our legs and sightseeing. The Chapel was beautiful, and I could have spent hours soaking up the artistry of this tiny gem. Hadrian's Wall is stunning in its scope!

Alan was an amazing guide, very informed and funny. There’s obviously quite a bit of bus time as you are visiting 3 different places, but Alan kept it entertaining the whole day. My husband was fascinated by Rosslyn Chapel. I was amazed by Hadrian’s wall. A great way to see a variety of sights outside of Edinburgh in one day.

Rosslyn Chapel & The Wall, Hadrians
Cat_J
, Jun 2022
Rosslyn Chapel is impressive & lovely. The Chapel guide presentation was informative & fun. Seeing the landscape up & back from Hadrians Wall was a joy. Best of all - the guide Kevin (nope, won’t try to spell it in Gaelic or Gàidhlig). Such a great sense of humour. Knows his stuff & excellent driver. Only drawback for me was not being able to see the castle or the ruins at the Chapel. Group was to fast on their feet. No way to keep up but did see the graveyard before they were gone down the path beyond. Not able to do it all but Kevin was kind & considerate to find a way for the elderly disabled lady with me to see the Wall. No regrets & very pleased. Not sure now why we had to see the Wall but maybe the seeing of it cleared that up. Next time, will do something that is just Scotland. 😉

Both locations were lovely but the real star of the tour was our guide. He was personable and talked about daily life for the average Scottish person as well as history. I would do this tour again if I came back to Scotland.
