Took three different day trips with Heart of Scotland in October of this year (2018). Without a doubt - excellent, well worth the money, and highly professional - had a great time! Drivers/Guides were top notch, good-natured, patient, and informative. Good senses of humor, safe drivers and knowledgeable tour guides - our guides were "Iain", "Paul" and "Angela" and each tour was equally enjoyable. So glad we booked with them and can easily refer this tour company to others.
Had a Hadrian’s Wall & Rosslyn Chapel tour with Gregor, who is the best storyteller with fun music on. Every site was amazing, it was also very interesting to hear slightly different stories of Scottish Borders and Borders. I had quite a few bus tours and it wasn’t always easy to follow all the stories guides tell in between. Greg was by far the best storyteller, literally drew me into every stories. Even though our car broke down eventually and had to wait for another vehicle at a small village, it was another funny experience to talk about in the end.
