Great Experience
11/07/19 by 1st-time traveler Jean
We had a great experience on our tour of Edinburgh and the Castles of Scotland. David our tour director and John our bus driver were the best. David made each day an adventure, was well prepared on all excursions and John made it easy to enjoy.

The tour itself was wonderful and filled with historic sites and beautiful scenery. Our personable Scotland bus driver James and our knowledgeable tour guide Kat were the best! They made the trip interesting and fun.

This was my first trip with Go ahead and my first overseas trip. I could not be happier with our experience. Our tour Guide David Hoole was absolutely amazing. He made every person feel special and worked extra hard for all of us.

Tips for planning a trip to Edinburgh

Some of the best places to visit on any trip to Edinburgh include:

  • Edinburgh Castle. No Edinburgh trip is complete until you see this centuries-old stone fortress, home to years of history, famous crown jewels, and incredible views.
  • The Royal Mile in the Old Town. With all the historic architecture and authentic pubs and shops, it’s no surprise that this is a UNESCO World Heritage site—and one of the most popular places to visit on Edinburgh tours. It starts on the slope of an extinct volcano and continues to must-see spots. (think: Parliament, churches, and museums.)
  • The Georgian-style New Town. Another UNESCO-listed site, this is the opposite of its older counterpart. It’s much more modern with chic bars and exciting shops.
