Frequently Asked Questions

    • How much time do we spend off the bus each day?

      As much time as possible! The aim is to get you out and about to fully experience the country you’re in. You'll embark on walks, explore castles, recount local myths and legends and tell you about Scotland’s often turbulent history.

    • What is the average age of the travellers on this tour?

    • Will there be parking facilities near the bus departure site where we could leave our car while on the tour?

      The tour departs from their office on the Royal Mile in the old town of Edinburgh, so any parking facilities you find in the centre of the city will suffice.
