Fun day. Wish we'd stayed overnight so we could have enjoyed it even more. Saw the highlights, though, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Great intro to Edinburgh. The information provided by the tour wet our appetite to return. The train rides take up most of the day so plan to do a lot in a short time.
If you are just looking at spending about 4-5 hours in Edinburgh, that this will be just perfect for.
Train from London to Edinburgh is about 5hrs.
Great tour. Another well organized trip by Viator. Be prepared to ride the train though for 5 hours to and from Edinburgh. L-o-n-g ride.
The trip is worth the length of the time on the rail, we recomend it. There is a lot of things we were not able to see because it was a short time in the city, but it was a great opportunity to see some things as the castle.
Thr trip was awesome!!! The Castle was awesome!!! however we didnt get a tour? not sure why? We were given paperwork and then sent on the train to Scotland and that was it. Rest of the time we were on our own
This trip was nice and we enjoyed it! The only thing is we only had 4-41/2 hrs there. Most of the time was on the train. 4 hrs there and 4 hrs back.
The city is very nice, worth knowing. It is a bit long journey for a tour of only one day, but is also good to see the countryside and other cities around. Too bad the train did not have a service such as aircraft and that the seats are too close together. It feels a long journey.
The trip went well. The only problem we encountered was finding the bus upon arrival in Edenburgh. With all the construction going on in and around the train station, we went the wrong way on leaving the station and it took us awhile walking around to locate the bus.
The day rail trip to Edinburgh is a must for a traveller who has a bit of time on their hands and want to see a bit more of the United Kingdom. The train ride itself was very relaxing but would recommend that you bring your own snacks and drinks as the train prices are a bit pricy. Remember to take a book or a game to pass the time. Edinburgh is beautiful. The whole city reminds you of medieval times with knights and dragons. Very interesting for younger travelers too.
Edinburgh itself was spectacular! It's a very long day and a long trip. What was very bad for us was that the tour company (not Viator) made a mistake in our train bookings back to London - it was made for a month after the actual date!
A full on day, but worth doing. The hop on hop off bus wasn't really necessary. We sat for 30 precious minutes waiting for it to leave. We got off at the castle and then walked the Royal Mile ourselves. We certainly had time to see what we wanted to see and enjoy a memorable lunch at Deacon Brodies Tavern
