Alnwick Castle & Scottish Borders Day Tour from Edinburgh

Your full-day tour begins in Edinburgh and continues further south through the Scottish Borders, where you’ll stop at Melrose Abbey. This is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful ruins in Europe. The heart of Robert the Bruce is said to be buried at the Abbey, which is also the final resting place of a number of other Scottish Kings. From here it's on to England, where you'll have lots of time to explore the tour’s main attraction, Alnwick Castle. Alnwick is the 2nd-largest inhabited castle in England, having been lived in for over 700 years. It’s filled with fascinating things to see and mysteries to uncover. You may recognize it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films.

Ich hatte Steven (B) als Guide. Er hat uns sehr viel über die Geschichte des Landes erzählt, uns die Musik nähergebracht und die Fahrt aufgelockert. Melrose Abbey war sehr interessant, aber die Hauptattraktion war das Schloss mit den Gärten. Wir hatten genügend Zeit beides zu besichtigen. Ich würde jederzeit wieder diese Tour machen.

楽しみにしていたのに、前日にメールで「ドライバーの問題で行き先が変更になりました。」ときました。しかもアニック城が含まれないツアーになっていました。連絡先に連絡すると、Get your Guideに聞け、と回されそうになったので、反論して返金してもらい、自力で行きました。 ツアー運営側なのかGet your Guide側なのかわかりませんが、気をつけてください。アニック城は素晴らしく、ハリー・ポッター好きならとても楽しめると思います。ホウキ教室は大人でも恥を捨てれば楽しく参加できます。

Brendan, our tour guide, was fantastically accommodating. He is a wealth of knowledge re: local lore and actual history. My experience felt as if it was personalized just for me, and I am greatful to have had Brendan as my guide.

Great trip, lots of information
Our guide Jamie took us from the romans to Brexit, through the Scottish borders via Hogwarts back to Edinburgh and added some magical spice with a short stop in 'Jamies special' North Berwick. Great stories, great knowledge, dry scottish humor, dedicated to his job and his country. Great trip!
Great guide and great tour! Very beautiful landscape and a great insight of the Scottish history. As for the price, the group gets a discount for both the abbey and the castle. The abbey isn't worth the money (around 5 pounds per person) The castle is 11 pounds per person if you do not visit the garden.

Great places, great guide, great day.
We enjoyed a lot. We were lucky to have Mike as our guide. He knew very well all the places, he is an authentic scotsman, kind and humorous, showed us much more than we expected.

We enjoyed our tour of Melrose Abbey and Alnwick Castle very much.
Being huge Harry Potter fans, we were very anxious to see Alnwick castle and it did not disappoint. We spent the day touring the gardens and castle at Alnwick, the hauntingly beautiful Melrose Abbey, Bamburgh Castle, the Tweed River Bridge and a few other places. Our guide was Gary and we had a lot of fun listening to his many stories about Scotland & England, the monarchs, wars, the castles and the history of the area. We learned a lot and enjoyed his stories told with humour and passion for the country. Gary was great to answer our questions and willing to stop for photos along the way. We had a very full, interesting and fun day and were very glad we had signed up. Thanks for the great day Gary.
