Customer Reviews

  • Lesley Irvine

    Staff were very pleasant and ran on time, it’s a bit deceiving stating it as a city tour and Brittania tour, as it does not include entrance to the royal yacht Brittania - this was an additional £20 pp charge

  • Judy Blake

    Great way to see Edinburgh- drivers helpful and polite. They advised us of best walking routes and what to expect re steps and inclined. Value for money for the 2 days

  • Tracy Marfleet

    Very informative tour however Sometimes the
    narrative on the headphones didn’t meet the place where we were
    Apart from that we really enjoyed it ??
