    • Good quick way to see Edinburgh

      Long day, but worthwile if you do not have much time to see Edinburgh. Edinburgh was surprisingly small & really only needs a day to look at. Return train ride home was...

    • We were very unhappy with what happened with our tour to Port Arthur because of your company. We had booked the tour with you because the site said that in August they didn't do...

    • Very well organised. The only thing I would say is that the timing concerning the departure of the train and meeting the rep at Kings X could be better explained. The party had a wonderful time. They were from the US and wanted to experience Edinburgh. The time was enough for us. Excellent
