AWESOME pass. We wish we just had more time to do all the castles. Well worth the cost.

It was easy to exchange at Edinburgh Castle and the young lady was very helpful in explaining everything.

Well worth using the Explorer Pass even though we were mostly in Edinburgh. We saw and enjoyed Melrose Abbey, Craigmillar Castle, Edinburgh Castle, and Stirling Castle. Tip for Edinburgh Castle: go in the morning. We arrived at noon and had to wait an hour for the audio headsets as they were all in use. Definitely worth renting but the wait was very long. I think our favorite was Stirling Castle -- not as crowded and they had several very excellent tours included. The Oxfam book shop in Stirling was a big hit with family members too.

We used this pass for a number of locations- Stirling and Edinburgh Castles, Elgin Cathedral, Blackness Castle, Linlighgow Palace, Urquhart Castle, Glasgow Cathedral, Holyrood Abbey, and Kilchurn Castle. Just by visiting Stirling and Edinburgh, the pass pays for itself. We were in Scotland for 10 full days, so we got the 7 day pass, meaning on 7 of the 10 days, we could enter an unlimited number of locations free with the pass. If you are visiting multiple historic locations on Historic Scotland's list of properties, by all means, get the pass!

Well worth it. My only suggestion is that the tickets given were simply printed on paper like a receipt. Extremely easy to lose or throw away. Real tickets or a pass card would be SO MUCH BETTER!

Well worth it! We used the pass in enough places that it paid for itself and then some.

What a fantastic purchase and experience. The admission to Edinburgh Castle alone was worth the price, but it also included Stirling Castle and so much more. Having the pass encouraged us to explore some of the lesser known sites which were well worthwhile. Wonderful time.

MUCH better value. Fewer attractions to see on this but they are all the MUST SEE places and very 'do-able' in the time frames offered.

Good value for money and no waiting in queues.

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.

The pass was wonderful and wonderfully priced from viator. We used it 6 times over the 3 days - well worth the money

This is well worth it to buy if you are visiting more than a few castles. You still have to wait in line. The only thing is there are only a few places that you can convert this purchase into the actual pass. Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle and a few others. So you need to make sure one of the spots is one of the first places you visit. Luckily we stopped at Stirling on our first day.

I'm giving it 5 stars. But we never went to the Edinburgh Castle. We visited Elgin Cathedral, Duffus Castle and Glasgow Cathedral. Nice venues, easy using the pass.

We were so glad we bought this pass! If you are going to visit several places that are listed on the pass, it's well worth the money. We even used it a couple of places that we hadn't planned on.
Go to the Explorer Pass website to see what places are included. There are about 75 throughout the country.
When you purchase this pass on Viator, you print off a voucher, and the turn the voucher in for the pass at one of three places listed on the voucher. It's very simple.

A breeze to swap our vouchers for the passes and they have saved us lots of money on entrance fees, well worth it.

So glad we purchased the tickets ahead of time, helped with the lines. We discovered the Holyrood House was not included. Had to buy additional tickets for the tour.
