Experience the heart of old Edinburgh on a guided walking tour along the historic Royal Mile. Board your motorcoach and enjoy a lovely scenic drive to Edinburgh, a thriving UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your walking tour of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's oldest and most historical street, will take you from the Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. You'll want to have your camera ready as the medieval buildings, statues and monuments that line both sides of the street make for dramatic photographs. As you stroll, a guide will impart information and facts about the area's fascinating past. Standing proudly at the end of Royal Mile is the magnificent Holyrood Palace, which was the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen whilst in Scotland. Your tour includes an opportunity to step inside to see the royal residence and view the unrivalled collection of tapestries and antique furniture. Return to the ship via motorcoach.
