“Again, I want to stress that the
Travel Director did a great job trying to accommodate us,
but Trafalgar as an organization has tied his hands with
respect to what he can do. There was some trouble with
the bus, which doesn't even factor in to this.
Most people know stuff happens - I'm not concerned
about that.
About
1.5 to 2 days are free days which we have to pay for
ourselves. Why? Start the tour the next day
and let people arrive by the day before? Also, you
have to pay for extras? Why? We paid for the
tour! We missed seeing Culloden??? Why?
It was annoying seeing the road sign saying it was 2
miles away and we turned the opposite way? Include
everything (no extras with additional payment) and don't
make folks pay for the extras?????
The good stuff (as it wasn't all
bad, just not sure we got value for our money - see above) -
The last meal at the farm house - that was great. The
tour of Eilean Donan Castle which wasn't supposed to
happen, but the weather forced us to do this as an
alternative was fantastic. Not pleased that the visit
to the Isle of Skye was a driveby (about 15 minutes inside
the bus). The tours of the Edinburgh and Stirling
Castles were good, but a little rushed.”

“Enjoyed seeing three views of Scotland so get an idea of the whole country rather than just one city.
There was still a lot of bus time which I thought we would eliminate with the leisure trip. I guess the bus time was necessary to see everything in the short time.
It might have been better to add a couple of days to give more free time.”

Edinburgh - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

An ancient city dating back millenia, Edinburgh is a mass of captivating layers that demand to be explored. From the majestic Edinburgh castle that looks down over the city to The Shore in Leith, a trip to Edinburgh is a magic mix of old and new that offers unrivalled Scottish nightlife, cuisine, and festivals that are as traditionally and culturally significant as they are fun. Get lost amongst the cobbled side-streets, revel in the reputable Scottish hospitality and gulp down some fresh air in the great outdoors.

Tour Highlights

  • A half-day tour to Edinburgh Castle is worth the entrance fee. See the crown jewels, get a glorious view of Edinburgh from up on the hill and learn about the historical tapestry of Edinburgh.
  • Be a tourist and walk the Royal Mile from the royal castle to the royal palace.
  • Edinburgh is home to many historical ghosts. Take a ghost tour and learn a thing or two about Edinburgh’s history while giving yourself a spook.
  • If you are in Edinburgh for New Year’s, it’s essential to celebrate the Scottish way with Hogmanay. Thousands tour to Edinburgh every New Years for the legendary festivities.
  • Hike up to Arthur’s Seat at magic hour for a breathtaking view of the city and a breath of fresh air.
  • During a summer, there are countless festivals to get involved with the comedic Fringe festival being the most famous.
  • The National Gallery is free and has some great work by Monet, Rembrandt and more.
  • Edinburgh Zoo is big on conservation and has helped save multiple endangered species.

Travel Tips

  • The best way to save money on transport and admire the beauty of Edinburgh is to walk!
  • Food and drink prices on the Royal Mile are higher than elsewhere in the city.
  • Parks, gardens, museums and galleries are mostly free in Edinburgh.
  • Edinburgh stays fairly cool year-round. You can always expect some wind and rain in Scotland but the winters are freezing. Pack lots of layers.
  • Many of Edinburgh’s restaurants offer set menus and drinks for as little as £20 per person.
  • Hotels away from the city center are much more cost-friendly than those on the Royal Mile, for example.
