Edinburgh Day Tours and Trips
Suggestions for day and half day trips and tours
Taking trips and tours in and around Edinburgh on your own is easy when you know what buses and trains to take, what is worth visiting and how long to spend touring places of interest. There is also the option of organised bus tours or train trips.
Getting to Edinburgh by Coach
Long-distance coach tickets to Edinburgh from £15. Guaranteed seats on comfortable coach, overnight or daytime journeys.
While organised tours are quite inflexible, they are ideal for those more comfortable travelling with a group and guide. The commentary of local guides is an added bonus. No guide book or foreign guide could possibly compete with the entertaining story-telling Scots are famous for or with their unmistakable accent.
