Great trip always helped with good weather. Interesting information on bus before reaching the boarding point for the ferry. Also further interesting info on the boat.Drink and snack facilities on the boat. You can either be the shelters part of the boat, or sit in the open the at the front or rear of the boat.

We have been coming to Edinburgh for many years so know a lot of the history. The guide on the bus called the tour connections and gave us interesting information about how Queensferry connected with Edinburgh. The boat trip very informative about many things to do with the area including historical stories, stories about mathematicians, financials and heiresses!! Plus of course all about the three bridges. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this trip, the tour Guid was explained everything we wanted to know about the three bridges and the area. The only thing that was a disappointment was that on the description of the package said castle/island was included but when reach there I was told buy another ticket for the island. This should changed and make it clear to the customers .
