Tell me about the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo?
Staged every year as part of the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a unique and memorable celebration of music, dance and military pageantry.  Set against the spectacular backdrop of the floodlit Edinburgh Castle, almost a thousand musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers perform at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the cobbled Esplanade.
Each year some of the most memorable highlights are the stirring performances of the Massed Pipes and Drums and the Massed Military Bands that emerge from the huge castle gates playing the stirring battle tunes of Scotland's famed regiments.  
Add to this the spectacular displays from the many overseas performers who bring music, action and colour to the event in Edinburgh and you have a winning blend that always keeps the Tattoo fresh, exciting and alive, even for the many faithful fans who return here every year.  
This unforgettable spectacle is brought to an emotional and poignant close each evening as a lone piper, spotlit high on the castle ramparts, plays a haunting lament. Fireworks, a mass chorus of Auld Lang Syne from the audience and the roar of jets from a military flypast bring the curtain down on a truly memorable night's entertainment. 
Can children travel this tour?
Children aged 5 years and older are welcome to travel on this tour. Children aged 5 to 16 inclusive travel at the appropriate child rate. We are sorry but children below the age of 5 cannot travel on this tour.
