What people are saying about Edinburgh

Doug provided a great summary of the process of distillery, aging and distribution of whiskies. Then we enjoyed a "flight" of 4 whiskies at one historic bar in Old Town, then moved on to another lovely bar to try a couple more whiskies (more aged...21 and 34 years old). Explanations, ratings and methods of tasting.... All in all, a wonderful, entertaining, educational and tasty experience!

Edinburgh is quite a big city so the bus really helped with the walking. There are three routes to choose from and it’s great for getting out to the Botanic Gardens, the yacht and Holyrood House. Loved the Royal Yacht Britannia and would recommend the tea room.

We bought the £59 ticket, it was really good value and easy to activate. Only downside was people upstairs on the Bus ( covered in part) with no masks! Regardless of signs saying masks must be worn.

Easy to use. We had a great tour of the city and we able to see and learn more about it.

amazingly efficient airport too Edinburgh transportation.
