The castle is very photogenic has great views over the city and is well kept and organised.
Skip the line was good but we had to queue up to convert the booking into real tickets anyway.
This was the way to go ! We arrived at the set up of the stands for the tatoo. I t was extremely busy and we just walked by and in ! Beautiful Castle and the history is very emotional for those who had relatives who fought in WW1.
By getting my ticket ahead of time, I was able to enter the castle without waiting in any lines. This is my second time visiting the castle. It is wonderful to be immersed in history.
This ticket really helped me get past the crowd and get some good pics before any one else walked up to the top of the castle. Get there 30 min before they open.

Highly recommended as save time to avoid the long line buying ticket over the counter.
Worth purchasing as the lines get long to enter the castle. Recommending going early or late afternoon. Plan to spend several hours there.
This tour was amazing! We loved learning about Edinburgh Castle.
Skipping the line was great and the audio tour at the castle was very informative and allowed one to proceed at one's own pace. Touring the castle was a very worthwhile experience.
It was great to skip the long, long line to enter Edinburgh Castle. We printed the paper voucher. It was unclear where to receive the tickets, but the castle staff were very helpful and gave us directions.
Its important to go to the information center to get a new ticket. You cant go in with just the vouge.
Well worth purchasing this ahead of time....especially during the August festival time. The line can be pretty lengthy!!
Excellent guided tour which explains the essentials of the Castle including the history and how the Castle is being used nowadays.
The best idea was the skip the line ticket as about 10,000 people a day visit here and on the day we went there was a passenger ship in as well and they were expecting 5,000 more visitors. Be there for the gun being fired at 1pm.
The Edinburgh Castle was a gem. The guided tours of the grounds provided a great overview of the Castle History and structures. It is a must see for anyone visiting Edinburgh.
Wonderful tour and visit to the castle! The fast passes were well worth their price!
well worth purchasing tickets for skip the line otherwise i would have been in an hour long queue at 10.30 in the morning with two young boys and the trip to the castle would not have spoiled by the wait. I would rate this tour as a definite 5 as did my daughter and grandsons.
Highly recommend this tour and to pre purchase tickets !! Lines can get long ! Great history and at the end you can walk down the Royal mile !!
I loved how we were able to skip the lines and just walk right in. We decided not to get the audio tour and just walk around the castle. Loved that we were able to see and take pictures of everything, but the crown jewels. Highly recommend seeing the Edinburgh Castle.
Really enjoyed the experience.very interesting.the weather was great. Would visit again.
If you are going to Edinburgh you have to visit the castle. I recommend getting tickets to skip the line. When we arrived the line to purchase tickets was at least a 45 minute wait. Saving time allowed us to enjoy the castle longer. Be sure to watch the one o'clock guns go off!
