I'm now obsessed with the castle! Great tour guide Naomi! She was very funny and knowledgeable.
We had such a great time on this tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and you could tell he was proud of his city. He even gave us more information every time we ran into him after our tour had ended. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Edinburgh.
Guide was excellent, very knowledgeable about the Royal Mile.
It was a bit late by the time we got to the Castle.
Second time leaving a review- first of all, this system could be better as it doesn't go through the first time. The places themselves were beautiful but unfortunately our time had to be cut short from the first one on due to an inconsiderate couple being almost 30 mins late. The bus was freezing cold- the driver said the heat was on as high as it went but everyone sat their shivering in their coats. Several people commented but we were frozen over by the time we got back. This may or may not be the drivers fault but you definitely need heating in November in Scotland. Also, Viator tours still has their original office address up and we almost missed the tour because we thought we were supposed to go to their old office on the Royal Mile.
The castle is absolutely magnificent and the audio tour is very comprehensive and helpful. Plan on spending a couple of hours touring the castle and make sure not to miss the room where Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to King James, it's very touching.
Doing what: Skip the Line: Edinburgh Castle Entrance Ticket
On our trip we visited Glasgow Cathedral, Stirling Castle, Urquhart Castle, Balvenie Castle, St. Andrew's Castle, St. Andrew's Cathedral and Edinburgh Castle. We purchased out pass before leaving home and it was well worth it. The lines to get in weren't too long when we visited with the exception of Edinburgh Castle and there it was so nice to have a separate line to get to the ticket office. Well Worth It.
Doing what: Historic Scotland Explorer Pass
Very fine and interesting trip with a great driver and a knowing and considerate guide. Been there before but this was better.
We had a grand time with Jerry. He most definitely knows his Outlander! Would go back again and spend another day with him.
Tour was very interesting. Two people had to use the restroom and missed over an hour of the tour. Guide was very concerned in their well-being, but this distracted from the tour. She was easy to understand and mixed enough of the old with the new throughout the tour. She had some print-outs that she showed us in a binder and I quite enjoyed being able to see what she was speaking about.
Excellent walking tour around the o,d town in Edinburgh. Our guide William was excellent and kept everyone well informed and also had a very entertaining way of telling stories.
Our guide was wonderful and skip the line is definately the way to go :
