Great tour
Toni_B, Sep 2023
I had a great time on this tour. The history and stories behind these sites were amazing and Maj was an informative, friendly and funny guide.
Great trip and guide
marywolfmann, Sep 2023
Our guide and driver Maj was so knowledgeable and personable. Really enjoyed his commentary. Timing at each stop was perfect and he never made us feel rushed.
Carrie_S, Sep 2023
Our guide, Dave, was great!! So much information. Was around to ask questions at all our stops. Great experience!! The scenery and the sites we saw were fantastic!
Two great historical buildings and a somber beautiful battlefield.
Paul_A, Sep 2023
Rosslyn Chapel was hauntingly beautiful. Stirling Castle was handsome, especially the interiors. Driver/guide was an excellent driver and a below-average guide. Too many stupid jokes and long rambling stories that never really paid off.
Wonderful experience
DonnaTiocao, Sep 2023
Our guide Nestor is knowledgeable and entertaining. We had sufficient time at each stop to enjoy the amazing sites.
Easy fun day.
Azan_N, Sep 2023
Pretty cool. Buy the Sterling Castle ahead of time. You get two hours there, and we wasted 30 mins in the queue for the tickets. Ofcourse ask the tour operator the time slot they will be at the castle.
A proper day excursion

Sterling Castle. Like the view on the castle wall. Easy walk by oneself. A good 1 1/2 hr exploring finished off a light meal at the cafe.
Linda_F, Sep 2023
I loved Stirling Castle, but Rosalyn chapel was wonderful. I have always loved anything to do with the Knights Templer.
Terrible tour and operator
Cindi_E, Sep 2023
Terrible day with an even worse tour guide or rather bus driver, very opinionated and political. Nestor didn’t provide much information, basically dump you off for you to fend for yourself, no one needs to hear what he thinks about things, we’re on holiday!!! Never again with this tour guide, we’re booked on another tour with this company which isn’t cancellable, so we will lose $$$, but not again
A great one-day "snap-shot" history experience
Thomas_B, Sep 2023
Great day trip. Sterling Castle was as spectacular as we expected; Rosslyn was even better than expected. I recommend this tour to others interested in Scottish history. A 5-star history experience. - Why a 4 rather than a 5 overall rating? The vehicle provided by Highland Experience Tours was uncomfortable, and the ventilation/cooling system did not work.
Three great locations in one tour.
Paul_D, Sep 2023
Whereas we were excited about going to Rosslyn Chapel we were very impressed with Dunfermline Abbey and the history it represents along with Sterling Castle, so we got three great locations in our tour. The history is remarkable and our tour guide was knowledgeable, charming and professional.

Great way to cover a lot of Scottish history in one day

Worth Leaving Edinburgh For
Amy_A, Aug 2023
Iain gave us a fantastic tour, incorporating history, music, and humor into his narrative. We had just the right amount of time at each stop and the total tour length was perfect.
Mostly just transportation
Terry_T, Aug 2023
Could have had tickets purchased at starling castle included in price with a guided tour if wanted for some instead of waiting on ticket line
