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.

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.

Exactly what is promised, no more, no less. We had plenty of time to explore the city after the hop-on hop-off bus tour we took and time to see the amazing castle! It was also early enough in the morning that we had the harry potter platform 9 3/4 picture spot to ourselves :

I really enjoyed this tour - everything was well organised, the guide we met at the beginning of the day had plenty of information for us and was able to answer all of our questions :
It is important to remember that you really don't have a lot of time in Edinburgh - we had about 5 hours - but you are still able to achieve a lot during that time as long as you plan it. Edinburgh Castle was fantastic and I was so glad that we had included tickets to see it, I went inside the National Museum of Scotland, saw the outside of Holyroodhouse Palace, the supreme court and took a leisurely stroll down the Royal Mile. On top of that, I tried some delicious haggis and a glass of proper scotch! The hop-on-hop off tour was also fantastic, very informative and well organised.

Overall, I had a fantastic day and met some wonderful people - I'd definitely recommend it :

Excellent rail accomodations snack trolley provided to and from the city! The castle entry was super easy and let us skip the loooooooong line. The castle itself is quite crowded so we hurried a bit more than necessary. From there, it was down the Royal Mile and over to the bus tour - which was very informative and timed well. We took advantage of the listening guide and just enjoyed the drive.

Love Edinburgh! Great to be able to wander at own speed and return to London when ready rather than being rushed. Poured with rain on the day we went - advice: don't let a little rain spoil your chance to visit any fascinating site. I know some on the tour just turned around and went back to London - I was most disappointed for them -they missed a great city!

this has been awhile but it was good going. Hard to fine a seat coming back because of Prince Williams wedding and everyone celebrating. One person had beer spilled on her. Edinburgh castle was interesting. wish had more time. wish the trip was longer then three hours before got back on train.

GUIDE MET US AT THE TRAIN STATION TO GIVE US VOUCHERS. ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS AND WAS PROFESSIONAL. LONG TRAIN RIDE, BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT....AND WE DIDNT MIND... WE SLEPT AS WE WERE STILL JET LAGGING!
REALLY NEAT CITY. THE CASTLE WAS VERY COOL WITH GREAT LOOKOUTS OVER THE CITY AND THE OLD STREET DOWN FROM THE CASTLE WAS SOMETHING OUT OF A FAIRY TALE. LUNCH AND SHOPPING WAS PRIME AND THE DOUBLE DECKER BUS WAS RELAXING AND A GREAT WAY TO CHECK EVERYTHING OUT.

This was a great tour mostly because we were left on our own. The tour rep met us at Kings Cross station, explained our tickets, gave us a map and a guide and told us which train to be in for the return trip and off we went. Edinburgh Was easy to navigate and there was plenty to see and do at our own pace. It was the perfect amount of time to spend there. I highly recommend this trip.

More info or a guided tour in Edinburgh would have been more enjoyable.
Overall it was a very good tour and experience. The train ride with Virgin was great too.

We met the travel agent exactly on time and where we were told she would be. She was very helpful in telling us how and when to do things to optimize our time in Edinburgh as it was an unguided tour. The trip was awesome! Our family of 6 is Scottish so we thoroughly enjoyed the history of the city. Take a few minutes to go to the Edinburgh museum in the old city, its free and very informative. The inclusion of skip the line tickets was a lifesaver as the weather was very nice and the castle was very busy.

The tour was through Evan Evans. The contact person at the train station was very helpful, explaining in detail the itinerary and walking us to the train. Traveled coach with assigned seats so I don and #39;t think traveling first class is necessary. Used Hop on/Hop off to get to Edinburgh Castle.

This was an awesome day. Very long but well worth it. The train travel was long but being prepared with reading material made the time pass quickly.

Good tour but you can probably arrange this one on your own. Train ride through the countryside is beautiful and Edinburgh Castle is beautiful and very historic. Since there is no tour guide, I would recommend staying overnight so that you have enough time to see more of the sights. The train trip takes 4 1/2 hrs each way so there isn't a great deal of time to see the sights if you're trying to do it in one day like we did.

The train trip was easy and went by quickly. Edinburgh is easy to manage and the tour operators make it simple to get on board the train, buses and in the castle. It was not a guided tour, but it's not a problem because the Edinburgh Waverly Station is central to the things you want to see. Overall, I would highly recommend taking a day and going to Scotland!
