The visit at Edinburgh itself was fantastic, with the visit to Edinburg Castle making the trip worthwhile.Be prepared to walk uphill a very long way! The train ride was the only difficult part of the trip. It was 4 1/2 hours up and 4 1/2 hours back. Bring a book if, like me, you can't sleep sitting up.
Our visit to Edinburgh was a one-day excursion, since our main focus was London. It was a nice introduction to Edinburgh which made us realize that we needed to return for more than one day to city the town and get a better feel of the culture. We went in August and we later found out that August is a popular month for visitors. This explains the massive crowds in the streets and everywhere. The tour representative was at the specified train station with the necessary documents for us to take this excursion. The train was clean and on time. There was food for purchase if desired. The hop-on-hop off was a great way to see the town and get off when we wanted to. The historical information provided by the hop-on-hop-off (HOHO) guide was interesting and informative. I will be returning to Edinburg for a longer stay and will definitely use the HOHO option again.
The coordination at the rail station in London was somewhat haphazard, but everyone got on. Edinburgh was fun to explore - everything close in, and with HO/HO, riding and walking was easy. Return train was crowded, many commuters, making for a long, long day.
Great experience - Evan Evans rep was at King's Cross as directed, was very clear with our instructions, and had all materials ready. We did first-class, which was fun but probably not necessary for another go-around - standard would have been fine. Once in Edinburgh we went to the castle first. We ate lunch in the castle tea room and then explored that area of town - lots of fun shops. The hop on/hop off bus was reliable and quick, and the audio commentary was very good. We unfortunately didn't have much time to explore much else of the city given how cold it was and my parents are a bit slow-moving, but this trip was enough to give me a taste of Scotland, and I definitely will go back - this time on my own, knowing how easy it is to travel there from London.
We met the representative at the coach station after given the package and after that in our own, we had a great time and will recommend it ...it was a taste and wanted more! just an amazing place...if you can advise priority seating. Enjoy and have a poncho handy.
It’s a long train ride, but if you’re short on time and can’t dedicate anything more than a day to Edinburgh, it’s worth it. It’s a beautiful city. This is an independent trip. A guide gets you on the train and then you’re on your own. You will only have about five and a half hours max in Edinburgh.
This was a great trip - from getting on the train, to arriving in Edinburgh and back again. Train trip was long each time - just over 4 1/2 hours each way, but Edinburgh is beautiful. Castle was fantastic - plenty of time to see and then the Hop on Hop off bus, was really easy to catch and get on and off as well as walking the royal mile. Would recommend to anyone.
I loved this tour. I had not been to Scotland before so this was a nice introduction. I loved the history this city holds which can be seen in the architecture, the statues, the castle and monuments. My plan is to go back and see more of this beautiful country. My only complaint is that my time there was too short.
