Indulge in an amazing evening of guided excursion via motorcoach to Edinburgh Castle to see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. As the sun sets, take your place in your comfortable reserved seats within the exclusive VIP seating area and join thousands of spectators gathered to experience Scotland's most popular attraction. Enjoy a breathtaking 1.5-hour performance that features military precision drills with massed bands, bagpipes, and drums, all representing various international Scottish Regiments. Marvel at traditional Scottish dancing, and enactments of historical events. Take in the wonder of guest performers from all over the world. Be awed by a finale that includes a fireworks display and the most moving of all Scotland's performances - a lone piper, floodlit on the castle battlements, his haunting music reaching out across the historic setting and into your memory forever. After the show, you are invited to join the Producer of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo for a Pommery champagne and canapé reception in the VIP Suite. Following the reception, return to your awaiting motorcoach for the return journey to Greenock.

Special Notes:

This tour has a very limited availability. Princess purchases the maximum number of tickets permitted by the Tattoo for any single performance. Tickets for this tour are allocated approximately seven months prior to the call. Until this date, all reservations are considered tentative pending the final confirmation. The number of tickets available is limited; please waitlist everyone in your party as early as possible for the best chance of confirmation.

Please note the dress code for all Royal Gallery packages is Formal. The Royal Gallery seats 148 guests and this can (but may not always) include politicians, high ranking military officials and even Royalty from the UK and overseas, as well as those who are enjoying corporate entertainment or special occasions. Denim and sports shoes are not permitted in The Royal Gallery. Guests are advised to dress as if for an onboard formal night. As The Royal Gallery is open to the front, it can become colder when the sun goes down and we recommend you bring a warm coat.

Once onboard, tickets are nonrefundable as they have been confirmed and purchased for the event.

The drive from Greenock to Edinburgh is approximately 2.5 hours each way. A restroom stop will be made en route.
