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.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, loved the palace which was only made better by the great commentary given on the audio guide. Covid guidelines followed well with sanitisers available. Great tearoom too.
The people I encountered were friendly and helpful plus I found the audio guide to be useful I don't normally use them And the palace was not crowded so was able to move quite freely
With the hand held screen it was an enjoyable visit, the audible details were very interesting and the close ups of the art work etc help make it easier to see the details
Very organised due to current restrictions. Good interaction with the audio guide. Very clean. And a glimpse into Royal living and the past
