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.
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.
a must see .. a little confusing to find, best bet is to go into the shopping centre and follow signs or ask someone!
Great experience to see the yacht with original furnishings where many historic figures met or dined with the Queen. To be able to see all different sections of the ship and have the relevant audio commentary was fascinating. Highly recommend taking tea in the cafe on the Royal Deck.
A very good, interesting trip. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We took tea on board and this added something to an already excellent visit.
Fab bit of history - loved it and the tea room is a great experience, really felt like royalty.
The ability to tour at our own pace made this a wonderful excursion!
It was really interesting. The audio guide included with the ticket price is the best I have ever used. The restaurant is a "must" to have afternoon tea in. I am planning to go back very soon with friends.
We were very impressed with the tour on the Britannia and felt that it was one of the highlights of our trip to Edinburgh. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
good value and interesting to see how everyone lived especially the sailors and marines
A fascinating audio tour of this splendid vessel. We found it to be good value for money and a great way to wile away a morning prior to embarking our cruise ship.
The Yacht is amazing. Hard to believe it cruised all over the world with its 1950's engineering. Pure class. We loved it. All the staff on board were really cheerful and so keen to share information
Interesting tour of Royal Yacht, quite an eye opener. Very enjoyable, would recommend.
The main dining room was fantastic - all parts of the ship interesting. Crews accommodation very spartan in contrast to the rest of the ship.
Engine room unbelievably spotless
Really awesome to see and the carrot cake in the Tea Room was divine!

A good tour and you have the luxury of doing it at your own pace
Lovely old yacht with so much history, it was comfortable without the glamour I thought it would have being a Royal Yacht.
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.
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.
