What people are saying about Edinburgh

I took my folks ( who are in their 80's ) on the 90 minute Three Bridges Cruise, I bought the tickets on line and headed to the kiosk to be booked in. The ship left on time and the weather was fantastic. There was a valued commentary given by the captain, assisted by a crew member who pointed out things of interest. My folks and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and I would recommend it for people of all ages.

Firth of Forth: 90-Minute Three Bridges Cruise Reviewed by John, 13/10/2020

The tour guide/driver (Alan) was really enthusiastic and spoke about the history of the highlands and every location we passed. He has an excellent amount of knowledge and throughout the entire journey was able to teach us about the history of Scotland. He even made an extra optional quick stop for us to get a good photo of the Nevis mountain range.

We had a really great time on our tour with Alan B. He was super knowledgeable, interesting to listen to and even occasionally sang us a tune or two to help reflect the beauty of all Scotland has to offer and it's connection to music :) The trip was safe, enjoyable, comfortable and overall a great day out from Edinburgh. Highly recommend it.

Amazing trip! I grew up in Edinburgh but this was my first time visiting the north and I couldn’t be happier with the tour! Martin was great and super knowledgable. Loved all the stories and histories. 12.5 hours trip was a bit exhausting but the views and scenery are definitely worth it!

Enjoyed the day out with my grandson who had wanted a go on a boat and he was over the moon with the trip seeing the seals and the bridges , money well spend and very informative
