What people are saying about Edinburgh

Must see if you love the Scottish history

Absolute iconic building located in Old Edinburgh, few minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station following market street. A truly lovely destination knowing how the Scottish struggle to keep the castle fight with the English. The castle is divided into three parts : Upper Ward, Hawk Hill and lower ward. Main attractions are Prison of War, Royal Scots Dragoon Guard, Royal Scots Museum and Queen Jewels. Keep an easy 3-4 hours to visit the castle. It can get very busy at times, we went on a long weekend August Holiday. You can enjoy the best view from the top which gives you history on how the new Edinburgh was build up. Don’t forget to walk on the royal mile as it is worth going with lot of things happening. We were lucky enough as they had a fringe festival. Can’t wait to go back. Love you Edinburgh, a beautiful and lively city.

An excellent and a must see place for anyone who is visiting Scotland.

I liked the one oclock artillery gun fire. It was a great treat to see how land was ruled and controlled by the rulers in the old days. Wars were fought for land, money and women. The dress codes and the weapons used during wars were astonishing. Justice and fairness were never the number one goal may it be in the past or in the present. Achievements were always measured with wealth that got acquired at the end of wars. It is also great to see how records were kept in those days and how those records were safe guarded against enemies. Hats off to those Who had the foresight and the determination to safe guard all those remaining wealth. Thank you once again. Rajah

A very well organised and welcoming Tour.

The whole Britannia Team was welcoming and helpful, taking photos of us on board when asked! The exhibition as we waited was very interesting and took me back over my history of the Royal Family. It was obvious what a homely yacht this was, having family photos in the rooms on board yet the state rooms were really grand. It was interesting seeing how the crew lived and what a whole community this was/is. A thoroughly enjoyable visit in a beautiful setting.

Fascinating, well thought out and a real ‘must see’

Apart from a little hitch finding the entrance, escalator not working and no extra signage, the whole experience was excellent. The routing of visitors works really well and the access to the various sections within the ship works well giving, it a very inclusive feel. The various photos and artefacts add immensely to the overall impression of a family home, how sad the Queen and her family were denied the use of it in her later years.

Really interesting, and staff are very helpful and polite

Marred by a very loud American girl who felt it was OK to bawl out someone who had moved in front of her in the line. It should be made clear at the beginning that you do not have to move round with the line of people you entered with, and that everyone is entitled to move ahead should they so wish. Would check the less busy times for a more relaxed walk round
