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.
Missed long lines for tickets by taking voucher to gift shop and then walking right in.
There was a huge line to purchase tickets that we were able to by pass..... Definitely saveed us time and hassle.
Jane, our guide, was fantastic. Her stories were told with a sense of humor and a solid understanding of history and the countryside. We saw wonderful Scottish castles and lochs and were not disappointed at all.
Great idea to pre purchase the ticket, we went straight in when it opened,joined the first free tour and had a good look around before the crowds arrived. Well worth a visit.
I love Edinburgh castle!! Amazing view of the city on the top of the castle
With the use of your "voucher", I was able to bypass the ticket line and go right into the Visitors Center to get my entrance ticket. I did not know this before I got into line, but a ticket agent spotted the voucher and told me where to go, so I did not have to stay in that line. I was offered the auto tour or a guided tour, and with so much to see and learn, I opted for the guided tour, which run about every hour. I was not able to stay with this tour, as I got too tired and due to an previous injury at home, I opted to continue on my own. Lots of steps. The room where the Crown Jewels are kept was extremely hot. Very interesting and informative picture murals as you walk up to the crown room. No photos in crown room, not even without flash, guard on hand to enforce this rule. It took me between 2-3 hours to explore the castle and eat lunch, then I opted to visit the Princes Park and the Cemetery. Luckily, buses and taxis everywhere. I was exhausted, but great to see the old castle with all its history. It truly is a "Castle in the Sky."
Very interesting. Especially the Scottish Crown Jewels. We had a nice lunch at the tea room.
