"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!"

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-5pm in the summertime (Apr-Sep) and 10am-4pm during wintertime (Oct-Mar). Bear in mind that your ticket will only be valid for one day.
