Eating Out

One dinner is included during our stay giving us the opportunity to sample the many local restaurants and bars this fantastic city has to offer. Due to the great location of our hotel, there are plenty of places within walking distance for us to soak up the atmosphere and grab a bite.

Saturday

On the Saturday morning we take a guided walking tour of Edinburgh’s Old Town and the famous castle. From here we head into the castle where this national symbol forms part of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site. This majestic attraction has dominated its surroundings for centuries and been a stronghold for over 3000 years. The tour gives us a great way to discover the city’s history and a chance to familiarise ourselves with our surroundings. The afternoon is free at leisure to explore further so perhaps explore Holyrood Palace while the shops along Princes & George Streets are right on our doorstep.

Sunday

Sunday morning we head over to the Scotch Whisky Experience and The World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky. Our tour includes a ‘nose’ and a tasting as well as a Whisky barrel ride through the production of Scotch whisky and a viewing of the World’s largest collection.

Useful Information

Location & Transport
Perfect for exploring the Old Town, our hotel is just a 10 minute walk from the Edinburgh Castle, Grassmarket and the Museum of Edinburgh. Discounted parking facilities and Waverley train station are within 5 minutes' walk of the hotel.

Included Programme
A morning guided walking tour is included of the city as well as entrance to Edinburgh Castle. On Sunday we include a guided tour of the Scotch Whisky Experience.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £10. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
