"Flawless rendition of the history about the castle! The guide was overly knowledgeable and had diverse views on many other historical issues and events. His sense of humor is matchless and that even made the tour more interesting!"

Tour Description

Bloody battles and dramatic conquests, no visit to Scotland is complete without visiting its most famous fortress. Our Edinburgh Castle Tour includes a ticket with skip-the-line entrance!

The Mons Meg, the Stone of Destiny and Honours of Scotland and all the secrets and most interesting spots of Edinburgh Castle are all included on this 1.5 hours tour, which will make the most of your visit.

Edinburgh Castle stays open 9.30am-6pm in the summertime (Apr-Sep) and 9.30am-5pm during wintertime (Oct-Mar). Bear in mind that your ticket will only be valid for one day.

You will have time to explore the Castle after the tour but if you wish to go back another day, you must buy another entry ticket. For this reason, we recommend planning the visit to allow yourself enough time.
