Skipton: 2-Hour Afternoon Tea Cruise
- Duration: 2 hours
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.
The only fault with the beatles story is their marketing. You don't get any idea from the website or promotional leaflet just how good this exhibition/museum of all things "beatles". The experience far exceeding both mine and my partner's expectations. The quantity of original material and the scope of what is covereed are truly awesome.
We had Tony as our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic! He has so much knowledge about the Beatles and Liverpool in general as well. He was a delight to take the tour with and it’s the best tourist attraction related to the Beatles that we’ve ever had. Recommend to everyone.
This was a superb tour. There were only five passengers, so a good deal of chat between courier Tony and ourselves. With a wife coming originally from Liverpool, but having moved away over 50 years ago, there was lots to talk about. His commentary was excellent.
Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Liverpool as well as the Beatles. He kept us entertained with his wit and humour as well as his wealth of knowledge. Would definatley recommend this tour.
