Hadrian's Wall & The Borders Luxury Private Tour with Scottish Driver

The Romans came, they saw, but they couldn’t quite conquer. After centuries of raiding, plundering, and fighting the ancient north of Britannia, they decided to build a wall.

But this isn’t just any wall, it’s an astounding achievement. It showcases the might of the ancient Roman Empire and illustrates how the Roman's interacted with tribal Britain.

This excursion takes you to the most interesting parts and lets you learn about Rome’s influence on Britain, while also giving you a chance to explore the gentle rolling hills of the borders, and visit an ancient abbey.

It’s perfect for anyone fascinated by the collision of cultures and quintessential British landscapes. No waiting for other passengers remember you call the shots this is Your Day, Your Way!

With Door to Door service from Edinburgh along with complimentary Bottled Water and Wi-Fi Access you truly are getting that First Class experience the Scottish Way.
