“Plan a cold night!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Loved the bands but hated the scramble out of the place. Disorganised chaos. Never seen so few people take so much time to get out. Football match is easier.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Definitely the highlight of our Scotland experience and the reason we came back, it did not disappoint. It stopped raining during the show too, but the rain wasn't going to dampen our high spirits, just felt honoured to be there and enjoyed the festival type atmosphere.. The bagpipes are amazing, and the precision of the top secret drummers were a standout. Loved it.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The setting for the Tattoo couldn't have been more striking! The musicians exit the gate to Edinburgh Castle. Hearing bagpipers there is quite moving. No seat seems bad.

“My heart still skips a beat when I think about that night!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was one of the most amazing nights I have ever experienced. We are from Chicago and were visiting during the Tattoo. Everything from the crowd entering the castle to the moving piping was incredible. My wife, daughters, 8 and 10, and I were BLOWN away by the beautiful night of pipers. You have to experience the thrill of hundreds of bagpipers playing from all over the world.
