Amazing! simple as that. A must see.
We spent a whole day at the Castle and would happily return for another look around as there is so much history to take in. We had the audio information devices which were easy to use as and when you wanted.

One of the best castles we have visited.

The Edinburgh Castle is a must see. We opted to purchase advance tickets, which saved us a lot of time at the door. We spent about 3.5 hours exploring the castle on our own. There are tour guides available if you prefer a guided tour. The castle is amazing and there is so much to see. I would definitely recommend taking your time and spending at least 3 hours here. So much history and incredible views of the city from the castle.

Being able to purchase my ticket before I left home made it so easy to get into the castle. It was very busy the day we there, but we saw most of the exhibits. I found the jewels and the royal apartments very interesting.

Too many people on tattoo festival but the history is great .be sure to take the free guided tour ( he's in a kilt)!just like the Tower of London. Most important-get your tickets from viator first as the lines are enormous!

Wonderful tour - allowed us to freely move about the Castle and take our time to see everything. Clear info given at each point of interest.

Well, the ticket is just that - access to the castle. There are audio devices you can pick up and listen to as you roam about the castle grounds, and I think there were some guided tours available as well, but we opted to sight see on our own and just look at stuff. There is plenty to see; the castle is actually a collection of buildings within the wall itself. We had lunch inside the castle as there are several places to get food inside, as well as a souvenir shop that sells Scotch whisky and whisky liquers (yum!). The parapets are a great place to stand to get a birds-eye view of Edinburgh, too. The castle has an amazing history.

Edinburgh Castle was fantastic. lots of crowds but with the Viator voucher we were able to bypass them all and go straight to the service desk and get our tickets and enter. The tour was good especially Mary Queen of Scotts. I loved the vistas from the castle and can see why it was the safest place in the land.

This was great......except.... We had a front of the line ticket and we lined up for 20 minutes to get in and when we got to the front of the line we were told to go to another office to redeem our tickets......we were not happy....perhaps some signs or assistance to guide you to the correct redemption place would be helpful!!!! Once we got into the castle...wow it was amazing. Perhaps coming from Australia where everything is so new we are a little in awe of these amazing castles. Stayed for the cannon blast at 1pm.....boom it was loud...don't forget to stay for it. Very impressive and definitely worth the visit.
