    The time management of the tour guide was good. We are a small group of people and we are able to visit all the spots and also an additional stop at a beautiful beach. The vehicle is very comfortable.

    Our one day tour was to Alnwick Castle, Rosemont and North Berwick Harbour. Jamie was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable, funny and an excellent driver. He covered just about everything and we enjoyed his humor. Jamie couldn't do enough for you making sure everyone was comfortable. We could have spent another hour at the Alnwick Castle. Just not enough time to see the castle, the gardens, have lunch and check the town out. Rosemont was charming with the Abby and gardens. We loved going to North Berwick Harbour, a hidden gem. Nice driving along the coastline. Just lovely. Would definitely definitely recommend this tour. A negative would be that the seats in the van were very small and very uncomfortable. Other than that, the tour was fabulous. Thanks Jamie for a wonderful day!!!!' You're an awesome tour guide!!!!
