Discover the best of Edinburgh during this full-day, moderately active guided tour via motorcoach to Scotland's capital. Enjoy a guided panoramic tour of the city to see Princess Street, Edinburgh’s primary shopping district. View the Sir Walter Scott Memorial and the historic Holyrood Palace, the official home of the queen when she visits Scotland. Visit Edinburgh Castle perched at the top of the Royal Mile for over a millennium. Independently explore St. Margaret's Chapel, the oldest building in the city. Peruse the Great Hall commissioned by King James IV in 1511. Marvel at the Scottish Crown Jewels, the oldest set of crown jewels in the British Isles. Take time out to explore, browse, have lunch on your own and shop in the city center at your leisure.
Edinburgh has cobblestone streets and inclines that can be steep leading up to the castle, so comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
