An extremely interesting and innovative tour.Really opens your eyes as to what life was truly like on this remarkable boat.A pleasant couple hours on board and your kept very well informed through the hand held terminals and commentary which are also easy to use.
Wonderful experience. Followed the audio guides from one deck to another. Viewed the Admiral's quarters, Queen's Boudoir, Phillip's Boudir, and guest room where Charles and Diana spent their Honeymoon. The sun room was beautiful. Enjoyed a delicious lunch on the Royal Deck and purchased many practical souvenirs for use on return home. A great tour.
A wonderful insight into the history and eventual end of the active life of the Royal Yacht. The audio commentary was perfect as you could spend as much or as little time on the five decks open to the public as you wished.Very glad I booked in advance as the queues were quite long to buy tickets on the day.A MUST attraction on a visit to Edinburgh.
Lots of great history given and audio tour very convenient
I think it was one of the best bits of my weekend only surpassed by the Dolly Parton concert in Glasgow and the Tattoo in Edinburgh. It was something that I have wanted to see for a long time and until the Thursday I didn't realise that I had enough time to do it. I would most certainly recomend this to anyone who has any interest in our countries history.
An interesting tour and I was pleased that there was no rush to get around. The signage on the yacht is easy to follow. The only minor difficulty was finding where the entrance to the yacht was from the shopping mall but the person on the information desk gave me excellent directions. I caught the bus from Princes Street which was easy, quick and inexpensive. This tour is a must if you are in Edinburgh.
Lots to see. Exterior stairs made moving from deck to deck very past and safe.
Definetly worth a visit. The tickets may as well be bought at the dock.
Highlight of a 7 day Ireland/Scotland trip. It was very informative and interesting.
Really interesting tour. Audio tour is easy to use and would recommend
If you dont visit anything else you must visit Britannia! We spent 3 hours on board and found it absolutely fasinating. It has been well looked after and there is so much to see. The fudge tastes as good as it smells too, wish we had bought more. Drinking tea view such fantastic views from the tearoom deck doesnt get much better. There were times when it was easy to forget you were on board a boat and not in a house. Will go back again, excellent value for money and so interesting.
excellent great tour really enjoyed it
