What people are saying about Edinburgh

Great short trip but the best thing was the information given by one of the crew, Don (not sure of spelling). He made the cruise much more interesting than by just hearing the recorded info.

Excellent boat trip, really good guide, lots of interesting historical information as well as a bit of seal spotting! Forth railway bridge is spectacular!

It was an amazing experience and planned tour. It's a must if you want to experience and see the 3 bridges and relax at the same time.

Really nice boat ride with a very helpful host. Must to do trip if you want to enjoy sea and view for 3 bridges from close
