ST GILES CATHEDRAL :
Entrance fee without photos
Our guide will meet you at the port of Leith or Queen Southferry where we board an air-conditioned coach to take a guided tour of Edinburgh.
We will start our day with a panoramic tour of the old and the new city.
In the new city we will see: Charlotte Square, George Street, Moray Square (if access is allowed),Edinburgh's largest square, Robert Louis Stevenson house and Arthur Conan Doyle neighborhood, St Mary's Cathedral, St Andrews Square, and the area of the banks ...
Then we will enter the area of the old town passing by the Princes Street and the gardens, the museums, and the monument to Sir Walter Scott.
If weather permits, we will go up the hill of Calton Hill, the best place to enjoy the scenery of the River Forth and get to the Palace of Holyrood that we can contemplate from the outside.
Our guide will give us all the explanations from the outside and we will have time to take photos and listen to some stories that happened inside its walls.
Important note: if it rains or there are people who can not walk, Calton Hill can be replaced by Arthur Seat Hill in Queen's Park, this is done by bus and also has excellent panoramas. It is done after or before the palace stop.
We will enter the Old Town and the Royal Mile, which separates Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle. We will pass by the old walls, the bridges, the Cathedral of Saint Giles and the alleys called "closes". We will visit Edinburgh Castle on the inside.
After the visit to the Castle, we will start our walking tour of the city with our guide, where we will enjoy free time for lunch (not included).
We will visit the Cathedral of Saint Giles (and we will know how Scotland became a country of Protestant religion) and the Mercat Cross area.
Return to the port of Leith so you can rejoin your ship for onward passage to you next port of call.
We trust you had a wonderful day with us and we shall look forward to seeing you again soon.
Bon voyage !!
