Edinburgh Afternoon Tea Experience aboard a 1966 Routemaster Bus
USD 46.35
Overview
Enjoy the very best afternoon tea that Edinburgh has to offer. Indulge in a selection of sandwiches, cakes, savouries and warm home baked scones with Traditional preserves and fresh whipped cream. The Tour explores all the main attractions in Edinburgh, including the historic Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Old Town to name a few. Duration of tour is between 70 – 90 minutes. We are licensed so additional drinks can be purchased from our onboard bar.
What to Expect
Sit back, relax and enjoy our truly eclectic Afternoon Tea Experience. Start the day off with a celebratory glass of fizz, then be guided to your seat where a dainty cake stand awaits. A sumptuous selection of sandwiches, petits fours, cupcakes and warmed, freshly baked scones await.
As the tour trundles around the streets of Edinburgh, you’ll be able to take in the sights while imbibing lashings of tea and coffee or the wine of your choice, specially chosen for you from our ‘buy on board’ drinks trolley.
Our tours typically operate at 12 noon, 3.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m., with each tour lasting approximately 90 minutes.
