We did the trip today to Rosslyn Chapel and the down to Hadrian's wall.The tour operator, Keith, was fantastic, and really made the tour something special. Other tour operators could take lessons! We had a lot of history, a number of stories, some songs, some music, and some quiet time, in what was a long and exhausting day. He went out of his way to make sure that we had enough stops and got food/toilet breaks. Have nothing but good words for the whole day -strongly recommended!!

My friend and I did the day tour that went to the highlands and Loch Ness. We really enjoyed ourselves, although it was a long day you get to see so much of Scotland.
We had Keith as our driver, he was great, he had a heap of stories to tell which kept the drive interesting and went out of his way to ensure he stopped enough for us to take pictures.
I will definitely be recommending this tour it is well worth the money spent.

Thanks for your great 5 star review! It is a great way to see some of Scotland and of course Nessie too (if you're lucky)...

Hopefully we'll see you back again for another trip.

Our tour operator James Donaldson did a fantastic job with the presentation of our tour. He was VERY informative and an excellent story teller! We learned more from him on the history of Scotland than anything we learned in school. Even my 15 year old daughter enjoyed his historical presentation. Not only was he a great tour operator, but he helped my 70 year old mother up the hill to Hadrian's wall. Very charming man :)

We would HIGHLY recommend this tour!!!

We booked this tour last minute as we had not planned our vacation very well. The company called us right after we booked to advise that Alnwick Castle was closed on the day of our tour and gave us the option to cancel. We decided to go ahead and we were taken to Bamburgh Castle instead which was great. We enjoyed the small group of 12 people and had an excellent time. We would definitely recommend Heart of Scotland Tours.

Took two tours with them. On schedule departure, nice comfortable buses and above all a very nice tour guide come driver. Ours was Keith ( I hope, have spelt your name right.) He was kind, considerate knowledgeable. We were fortunate to have Keith for both the tours. He gave us historical information, stories and anecdotes with some humor thrown in between. The whole day passed quickly.
The tours were arranged well with consideration for needs of older tourist. The stops were well spaced out.
Will recommend to all.
