Day trip to Edinburgh

  • How’s the view from the train and the bus ? Outstanding !
  • Children under 4 travel for free.




Edinburgh, the showcase capital city of Scotland, has one of the most beautiful cityscapes in the world—making it the perfect setting for an open top bus tour. And, as you’ll quickly discover, Edinburgh isn’t just about bagpipes, shortbread, and haggis. It’s a city grounded in history and culture. The castle itself attracts over one million visitors a year. Perched dramatically on a volcanic rock, you’ll be absolutely awed by its spectacular skyline views. The bus tour takes you along the Royal Mile to the Holyrood House, the regal residence of Her Majesty The Queen, best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots. And don’t forget to climb (it’s easy !) Arthur’s Seat, the extinct volcano that looms over the city and provides even more stunning panoramic views. Want to “blend in” with the locales ? Wear tartan.

Here’s what’s included :

  • Unescorted full-day tour.
  • Roundtrip train transportation from London to Edinburgh.
  • Open top bus tour through Edinburgh covering all major sights.
  • Entrance into Edinburgh Castle.
