Alistar was amazing, very entertaining, very knowledgeable, and thoroughly enjoyable to have as a tour guide for the Skip-the-Line Edinburgh Castle Walking Tour. I highly recommend this tour.
With an inordinate amount of historic attractions to go see, you won’t want to waste any time during your vacation in Edinburgh. Save up to two hours of waiting with a skip-the-line admission ticket to Edinburgh Castle, one of the Scottish capital’s most recognizable monuments. On a guided tour, discover secret histories and hidden details that you’d otherwise miss as you watch your guide bring the fortress’ history to life.
Your tour of Edinburgh Castle begins at a central Edinburgh location, where you’ll greet your guide and sail past long lines with a skip-the-line admission ticket. Having saved up to two hours of waiting time, explore the grounds of the castle and visit curiosities such as the world’s smallest shrine and a cemetery reserved exclusively for dogs.
Stroll through Crown Square, see the crown jewels of Scotland, and enrich your knowledge of Scottish military history in the National War Museum. Once your tour concludes, feel free to continue exploring the castle independently at your own pace.
