Route

Entdecken Sie die Mythen und Legenden rund um den “Da Vinci Code” (Sakrileg), die Tempelritter und die Grabstätte des Herzen von Robert the Bruce. Ihre Tagesfahrt bringt sie zum berühmten Ausblick, “Scott´s View”, mit atemberaubendem Blick auf das Tweed Valley und die Eildon Hills. Von hier aus geht es weiter nach Melrose wo Sie die Möglichkeit haben, die großartige Border Abtei zu besichtigen, die im 12. Jahrhundert von Zisterziensern gegründet wurde und wo das Herz von Robert the Bruce begraben liegt, nachdem es von Kreutzrittern aus dem maurischen Spanien zurückgebracht wurde. Nach dem Mittagessen in Melrose, fahren wir zur Rosslyn Chapel. Sie stammt aus dem 15. Jahrhundert und wurde durch Dan Brown's Buch “Sakrileg” unsterblich gemacht. Dort können Sie mehr über die Mythen und Legenden herausfinden, die den Verbleib des “Heiligen Grals” umranken. Von hier aus werden Sie wieder zurück nach Edinburg fahren.

Itinerary (English)

Your tour takes you south to the beautiful Scott’s View. You also get the opportunity to visit the nearby statue of the great Scottish patriot, William Wallace.

From here, you travel to Melrose with the opportunity to explore its great abbey, founded by the Cistercians in the 12th Century. The Cistercian monks had very close connections with the Knights Templar and Melrose Abbey is the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart, brought back from the crusades in Moorish Spain.

Following lunch in Melrose you make your way to the stunning 15th century Rosslyn Chapel, immortalised in Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code”. You get time to explore the chapel and find out more about the myths and legends surrounding the whereabouts of the “Holy Grail”.

From here you return to Edinburgh.

Great trip! August 31st

Clifton Cowan Posted on 31/08/2017

We had a great experience today with our guide, Bob! The Scottish countryside is beautiful and scenic, but it came alive and increased in intensity by having Bob as our guide. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Rabbie tours are the best

Suzanne Grace Posted on 30/06/2015

Dear Gillian, You are a great guide and we enjoyed meeting you so much. You are the heart of Scotland for sure. You took the time to talk with me about various Scottish things I wanted to know. It meant so much. My friend and I had to take another type tour on a big bus once, it was not the same as a rabbie tour. When I can, I will be back. If I could get my family moved to Scotland I would. Your tours are the best way to see Scotland and learn the history. Suzanne , from the U.S.

Borders Tour with Sarah McKenzie

Therese Fitzgerald Posted on 25/11/2011

I never really contribute my opinion to these types of things but my experience was so memorable thanks to our amazing tour guide and I had to come on here and give her some credit. I was on a 2 week trip across the UK and spent 3 days in Scotland with my boyfriend and we loved our tour guide for the Scottish Borders Tour. She told us the Story of Mary Queen of Scotts and the Drive and played Scottish music on the bus. I had been on many tours during this trip and hers was the one that stands out by far. She even told me where I could find the cd she played on the bus! I bought 2 of them. We loved Sarah! And Scotland!

I had a private tour

Heidi Giesbrecht Posted on 24/02/2011

Rabbie's keeps their word, if you book you go. I booked this tour and was the only passenger. I had to go as I was leaving the next day. I had my own personal tour. Richard, I don't know how you know and remember all that you do, but I learned so much on this tour and my tour on Monday. I loved Melrose and Rosslyn, this was my favourite tour. You are fantastic! and I enjoyed listening to your stories and all the information you imparted. I would love to come back on day and take a tour of the islands. Thank you all so much for making this special holiday a dream come true (my 23 year old daughter saved for the last three years to send me on this trip for my 50th birthday). I will have special memories and joy as I think on all that I did, for the rest of my life. Heidi ps will upload pictures once I get them organized.

gret tour

Judith Posted on 09/11/2010

Big thank you to Bob, for a great day at Rosslyn Chapel and the Borders. The whole trip was a wonderful day out (in spite of the slightly dodgy weather), and Bob was professional, fun and informative. Would definintely recommend this trip, and Rabbies ... and Bob, of course. Thank you!

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?
