Full description
Edinburgh The train from London's King Cross Station arrives at the Royal City of Edinburgh at around 11.30am. Right by the station you board the open-top sightseeing bus where you'll get a bird's-eye view of this majestic city! The hop-on hop-off ticket allows you the freedom to leave and re-join the bus as often as you like. You will see the Old Town quarter, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, the gloriously intricate Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyrood House and the brand new Scottish Parliament building. You might want to wander through the cobbled city centre streets or stroll along Princes Street checking out the tartan, whisky and shortbreads that have made Scotland famous! Your tour includes tickets to Edinburgh Castle. The train back to London leaves Edinburgh in the late afternoon returning to London's King's Cross at around 10:30pm.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to go to Edinburgh. It is truly a beautiful city and there is SO much to do. I like how we received all of the tickets on our phone so we did not have to meet a representative prior to leaving. As we were travelling and planned the trip last minute. We found it a lot more challenging with getting access to the site seeing bus tour - as it requires you to print the email out and it is not a physical ticket. Otherwise. It was a good time.

I really liked the practicality but unfortunately I had problems finding the representative at the train station, both at Kings Cross and in Edinburgh. I almost missed the one-way train looking for it and had to buy the ticket to the castella again there because I couldn't catch it with the representative.

Fin tur, men sammenpresset til en dag med så lang togtur, måske lidt dyr i forhold til oplevelsen, brug heller længere tid i Skotland og oplev mere når man er der.
