We loved our time in Edinburgh and wished we could have stayed longer. However, after arriving in Edinburgh, it was very difficult to find where to receive our tickets for the hop on/hop off bus. The directions should be made more clear. Great trip, though.
Great trip, despite the almost 10 hours on train, Edinburgh really worth it!
Amazing. The train ride was very pleasant and we went passed the sea at one point. Beautiful Scottish countryside. We didn't have much time in Edinburgh and the weather was atrocious apparently unusual for this time of year. Very cold wet and windy. Nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it. First stop was Edinburgh Castle where I warmed myself up in the cafe with a haggis pie! John Knox's house was also a priority. I also climbed the monument for 3 pounds which gives you good views of Edinburgh. 287 dizzy spiral steps. I'm a thin guy and only just squeezed through the staircase at the top. Wet and slippery, but I think it cured my fear of heights! Would love to return to Scotland.
Excellent one day trip. We got to see all the important sites and enjoy lunch all in one day.
Although it was a long day, it was well worth the trip to Edinburgh. You had plenty of time to visit the castle and the hop on and off bus was a great way to see the city
Excellent for a one-day tour. Everything was prepared and booked for us, no queue, no time waisted. Edinburgh is marvellous, we wished we have stayed a night. Even if the tour lasted 16 hours, we were really no tired and enjoyed the train voyage with its beautiful scottish sceneries.
loved it!! how cool it was to visit scotland while vacationing in london..
What a great way to see Scotland for a day! Viator made the trip effortless and fun; we were able to concentrate on the fun of the adventure instead of worrying over details and time constraints. What a great opportunity to make the most of limited time. Our time in Edinburgh will never be forgotten. Great fun, highly recommended!
Excellent! Edinburgh is a beautiful city worth the long trip. Off course this is only a taste... Will come back for at least 1 week to this beautiful city.
Loved the trip! Edinburgh is so beautiful and the countryside viewed from the train is not to be missed. I had a great time
My husband and I recently did this trip and loved it! Yes it was a full on day but the train was comfortable and a chance to see the countryside views was good. Edinburgh was a fantastic city even though we only had a shor time there. We would have no hesitation in recommending this day trip. Katherine & Richard Perth Western Australia
For a one-day excursion, this tour is a great way to see a bit of Scotland. The train ride provides beautiful views of the landscape between London and Edinburgh. We got off the train and went straight to the castle via the bus passes provided. We had plenty of time to tour the castle and visit some other sights while we were there. Our group split up so we could see the sights that interested each of us. I toured the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which was definitely worthwhile, although I only listened to the first part of the audio tour in each room to save some time. Other places visited include Scottish Parliament and the Library. Plan well and you will be able to get a good taste of the city.
