The guide was very friendly...

Sharon Z | Oct 2019

The guide was very friendly and informative. Alnwick Castle was amazing even though it was a rainy day. Lindisfarne is a nice little village with a historic castle and priory, worth viewing. I Recommend this tour when visiting Edinburgh. Visitors

Our tour guide shared so much history, ins and outs of getting around the areas we visited and more on our day trip to the Coast. It was great to leave the “research” up to the guide and listen to him tell us about the coast and it’s history.
