Sooo interesting. Audio equipment excellent, explained every step of the way. Exhibition of Prince Philip’s collection was especially interesting. Mary Queen of Scots rooms were set out realistically. The gallery where the Queen Elizabeth presents honours and the photos of them.

Helpful staff when collecting the tickets, informative commentary on the tours. Handy for getting about the city. The three attractions were interesting and informative. Top tip - do Britannia and holyroodhouse palace in one day and Edinburgh castle on a different day.

Excellent way to enjoy all the city and surrounding areas . We bought tickets for the 3 bus routes and planned our days accordingly., Buses were clean and ran on time , no problem waiting . Would recommend especially to people who have not been to Edinburgh before.

The staff at the start were very efficient and friendly in organising our tickets for the activities. They make the journeys special, a bit of humour,laughing at themselves and always giving interesting facts along the way.

Worth every penny! Easy to purchase tickets using the app.
