We throughly enjoyed our half-day adventure. The bus was easy to find and our bus guide did a lovely job of taking us through the New Town and country to Queensferry. The boat trip was also a great way to learn more about the area while seeing the beauty of sea above Edinburgh.

It was very nice we saw seals on our way and the bridges were fantastic! The guide on the bus was also funny and gave us a lot of information about Edinburgh and the surroundings. On the boat you could buy drinks and crisps but I‘d recommend to buy/eat sth before going to the meeting point so you won‘t get hungry during the whole trip. Other than that, everything was good!

Great trip always helped with good weather. Interesting information on bus before reaching the boarding point for the ferry. Also further interesting info on the boat.Drink and snack facilities on the boat. You can either be the shelters part of the boat, or sit in the open the at the front or rear of the boat.
