The best history lesson ever! Our guide (Eric) through The Borders and along Hadrian’s Wall was excellent - knowledgeable, entertaining and a very good driver. The scenery en route was stunning and the times allowed at each stopping point just right. Jedburgh is an attractive town with an Abbey, Mary Queen of Scott’s house and a range of independent shops. There were other shorter shops which I hadn’t expected but found very interesting. Our final stop at Vindolanda was fascinating and much bigger than I expected. It is worth taking time in the museum as well as wandering around the ruins. On the way home Eric played a range of Scottish music and he explained his choices. This made for a relaxing trip home. I would wholly recommend this trip - but wear sturdy shoes!

Alex was awesome on this chilly winters morning. Lots of local knowledge shared giving us insights to the history of the toon. Good pace, not too hurried, well worth the experience and recommend to anyone considering!

Interesting and just a nice fleeting review of history. Disappointing that some areas were not open, and other than covid there was no reason why. Enjoyed it though and would recommend it.

The mini bus was comfortable, we were allowed ample time at each location and offered additional rest stops throughout the tour. Jedburgh and Vindolanda were amazing historical sites.

This is an excellent tour. The tour guide, Sean, was very knowledgeable about the areas and the history. The bus was comfortable and the driver, Mark, was an excellent driver.
