“Great Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The Atmosphere Up on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle when the Tattoo is on is Phenomenal!
Seating Can Be Hit & Miss as some seats are very High up & they're not the Most Comfortable, be sure too ask where the seats are Located when you book.
There is also a steep Climb up too the Castle Esplanade & when Tattoo is on The Royal Mile is Very Very Congested.
Allow yourself plenty off time to get there.
Well worth all the Effort though, as the Performers Who come from all around the Globe are so Professional & Very Entertaining!!!!

“A late review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I went to Edinburgh Military Tattoo in 2011. As it is often in that time of the year in Edinburgh, it was raining. Performance was at best average for the price of the ticket. It would be good if tickets are not priced as high as they are.

“Great Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Once again a great night out - precission and discipline. Very enjoyable and emotional. I was privilaged enough to take 9 of my guests out one evening from Carberry Tower - each one couldnt stop talking on the way back to Carberry Tower - each act was entertaining, professional and worth every second.

First time I have ever been and can't wait to go again. The skill and precision involved and the show and music itself makes the hair on your neck stand up. Go see it if you can !!
