Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Edinburgh and discover its famous sights - including Princes Street and Jenners (the world's oldest department store), the imposing cliff-top Castle, St Giles Cathedral, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile.

Depending on your arrival time, you will either transfer to the hotel to check in after your tour, and take advantage of a transfer back into the city centre to enjoy the rest of the day in Edinburgh, or enjoy the city and your tour after check-in.

Day Two

Spend today relaxing in the hotel or exploring the city further. Visit one of the impressive museums or the Castle, or perhaps browse the stores along famous Princes Street.

Edinburgh's colourful Christmas Markets offer plenty of entertainment and gifts galore. From Scottish handicrafts and foodstuffs in the Traditional Highland Village in Princes Street Gardens - transformed into a winter wonderland complete with an ice rink and a funfair - to tasty delights and unique gifts at the authentic German Market, there's something for everyone.

Day Three

Spend another day in the city, or board the coach for the included transfer to Ocean Terminal at nearby Leith. Search out special presents in the designer stores, and step aboard the former Royal Yacht Britannia, which lies at rest in the harbour (entry payable locally).

This afternoon, transfer to the airport for your return flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 20 minutes.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
