Full description
Edinburgh The train from London's King Cross Station arrives at the Royal City of Edinburgh at around 11.30am. Right by the station you board the open-top sightseeing bus where you'll get a bird's-eye view of this majestic city! The hop-on hop-off ticket allows you the freedom to leave and re-join the bus as often as you like. You will see the Old Town quarter, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, the gloriously intricate Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyrood House and the brand new Scottish Parliament building. You might want to wander through the cobbled city centre streets or stroll along Princes Street checking out the tartan, whisky and shortbreads that have made Scotland famous! Your tour includes tickets to Edinburgh Castle. The train back to London leaves Edinburgh in the late afternoon returning to London's King's Cross at around 10:30pm.

I really liked the practicality but unfortunately I had problems finding the representative at the train station, both at Kings Cross and in Edinburgh. I almost missed the one-way train looking for it and had to buy the ticket to the castella again there because I couldn't catch it with the representative.

I understand covid rules but it is May 2022 No meeting at Kings Cross No meeting at Edinburgh Was left to explore on my own I'm not an adventurous person so wanted a tour guide at least for an hour or two to do what tour guides do. What I got was a £200 return ticket and free entry to the castle Very poorly run, I'm convinced the tour guide didn't even bother showing up, no contact number provided. Imagine if I got into an accident, they wouldn't know a thing and no planning ahead for precautions
