Meet your top-of-the-range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach in the morning in central Edinburgh before spinning out of the city with your guide into the borderlands between Scotland and England for your tour.
First, stop in the market town of Kelso and explore top attractions including Kelso Abbey. With your guide to lead the way, hear about bloody conflicts between the Scottish and the English through the centuries.
Continue southward to Alnwick Castle—famous across the world as the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter movies. On arrival, enjoy free time to explore at your leisure. Stroll the expansive grounds, and perhaps pay the entrance fee to explore the castle’s interior with a guide (own expense).
Afterward, head onward along the Northumberland coastline, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as you make your way back to Edinburgh.
