Sooo interesting. Audio equipment excellent, explained every step of the way. Exhibition of Prince Philip’s collection was especially interesting. Mary Queen of Scots rooms were set out realistically. The gallery where the Queen Elizabeth presents honours and the photos of them.

Helpful staff when collecting the tickets, informative commentary on the tours. Handy for getting about the city. The three attractions were interesting and informative. Top tip - do Britannia and holyroodhouse palace in one day and Edinburgh castle on a different day.

Our guide Tuesday was absolutely fabulous. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Vaults and the history in Edinburgh old town. She has a knack of taking you right back to how it used to be with her soft lilt and descriptive tones. 100% effort - amazing thank you:)

The staff at the start were very efficient and friendly in organising our tickets for the activities. They make the journeys special, a bit of humour,laughing at themselves and always giving interesting facts along the way.

Very interesting, spooky and funny all in one! Tour guide was excellent clearly loves his job
