Edinburgh City Tour

from Edinburgh

Tour Highlights: Edinburgh Castle, Royal Scottish Academy, The Georgian House, St Giles Cathedral, The Scottish Parliament, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Greyfriars Bobby and Our Dynamic Earth

Edinburgh, the Royal and ancient capital of Scotland, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The ancient Royal Mile with its cobbled streets forms the backbone of the Medieval Old Town and leads from the Palace of Holyroodhouse (HM The Queen’s official residence in Scotland) all the way to Edinburgh Castle. This impressive fortress is home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and the historic Stone of Destiny. The views from the castle ramparts are just simply stunning. Along the way you’ll see the iconic Scottish Parliament building, John Knox House, St Giles Cathedral and much, much more!

iscover the sinister Grassmarket where the infamous murderers, Burke and Hare, had their lair. Many of their victims were enticed back here on their final journey! This was also the location of the city’s gallows and as executions drew a big crowd the expanse of the Grassmarket meant everyone could get a good view!

By contrast the 18th Century New Town boasts gracious Georgian terraces, crescents and grand squares. Shop until you drop in the designer shops of George Street or take a walk along Princes Street with its magnificent gardens, an outstanding feature making this one of the most spectacular shopping thoroughfares in the World.

Our open-top bus tour of Edinburgh is the ideal way to discover all that is best about Scotland’s Capital city. There are up to 4 departures every hour and you can hop on and off at stops along the route so that you can explore the places of interest that you are hearing about in the commentary. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours. The commentary is provided in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Russian plus 'Horrible Histories' Kid's Commentary.
