“What a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

A marvellous experience. The Tattoo is worth seeing at least once in your life. The backdrop of the Castle just adds to the spectacle. You can't beat sitting on the Castle Esplanade on a warm Summer's evening, watching massed pipes and drums. Brings a lump to the throat! A must have experience

“Edinburgh Military Tattoo.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had a whistle stop tour in Edinburgh to see the Tattoo. It was absolutely wonderful full of colour, precision and vitality.The castle itself was so imposing and dominated the scene. It changed its aspect to match the activities in the arena. Groups came from all over the word to perform in this Tattoo, man , machine and beast. All the best of their kind. The whole of Edinburgh seemed alight with Tattoo fever and the energy seemed to travel the streets with all the jolly stalls and the Fringe activities. Everyone should try and see this at least once in a lifetime. It is a special and unique experience.
