What people are saying about Royal Mile

Must see if you love the Scottish history

Absolute iconic building located in Old Edinburgh, few minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station following market street. A truly lovely destination knowing how the Scottish struggle to keep the castle fight with the English. The castle is divided into three parts : Upper Ward, Hawk Hill and lower ward. Main attractions are Prison of War, Royal Scots Dragoon Guard, Royal Scots Museum and Queen Jewels. Keep an easy 3-4 hours to visit the castle. It can get very busy at times, we went on a long weekend August Holiday. You can enjoy the best view from the top which gives you history on how the new Edinburgh was build up. Don’t forget to walk on the royal mile as it is worth going with lot of things happening. We were lucky enough as they had a fringe festival. Can’t wait to go back. Love you Edinburgh, a beautiful and lively city.

An excellent and a must see place for anyone who is visiting Scotland.

I liked the one oclock artillery gun fire. It was a great treat to see how land was ruled and controlled by the rulers in the old days. Wars were fought for land, money and women. The dress codes and the weapons used during wars were astonishing. Justice and fairness were never the number one goal may it be in the past or in the present. Achievements were always measured with wealth that got acquired at the end of wars. It is also great to see how records were kept in those days and how those records were safe guarded against enemies. Hats off to those Who had the foresight and the determination to safe guard all those remaining wealth. Thank you once again. Rajah

The best way to start your visit at a spesific destination!

We bought a 48-hour Hop-on-hop-off Bus-pass and took full advantage of all the routes (red, green & blue). After doing the Red-route first, you can decide what you want to do/see and when. This is so easy! Information via audio-phone and/or live commentary, is excellent and we learnt so much! This Pass even included entrance-tickets to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace as well as the Royal Yacht Brittania in Leith Harbour, just wonderfull! Don't hesitate, just do it!

A great way to learn the history and experience the sights of Edinbur.

Very informative tours of all the sights of Edinburgh. My third trip using this service and it has improved so much. An excellent service for anyone with walking difficulties as the hilly terrain could be taxing. Enjoyed it immensely but would have liked more than 24 hours to see the sights. We were stuck in traffic due to the Royal Garden Party so missed seeing the gallery. We would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to other visitors.

The tour was good. The walk to the castle wasn't.

Our guide, Jen, was great. Informative, funny, and seemed to be enjoying her work. I was less than happy with starting the walk to the castle so far away and at a pace that my wife and I had trouble keeping up with. According to the description of the tour, the walk was supposed to offer an opportunity for the guide to present background on the castle and the tour but it just turned out to be a speed walk to the castle.
