The Tour explores all the main attractions in Edinburgh, including the historic Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Old Town to name a few. Duration of tour is between 70 – 90 minutes.

Something a little different

A cracking couple of hours. Greeted with a glass of bubbly. A fantastic afternoon tea - the food was delightful. Followed by gin. Staff great, didn't want for anything. Well worth it!
