“Magic afternoon tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We went on a forth boat tour from South Queensferry. We chose to stop off at Inchcolme island. Lovely place. Had a great visit. A must - climb up the very narrow steep stairs to the top of the tower, if u can, there's a great view to be had! The commentary on the boat was very informative and interesting. Although this is recorded the captain stops the recording to tell you interesting things that are happening or things that can be seen at that time. He stopped the boat to let us see a few seals and take photos. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend to everyone.

“Transport Heritage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

It is a wonderful sight and a pleasure to stay by it.The trains make a sound like distant thunder. You can sail under it as well as ride over it.

“Nice few hours on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We took the tour bus from St Andrew Sq which has an interesting commentary about things you are actually passing on the way. eg Victorian and Georgian architecture. We arrived and got on the "Forth Belle" cruise boat and had a very nice 90min cruise or so. Again interesting commentary. The boat stops at Inchcolm Is but we didn't have the time to get off. We were lucky with weather and on a day like that the tour under the bridges is well worth doing.

“Fantastic piece of craftsmanship.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Went over the Forth Bridge on the way to Deep Sea World and the views were fantastic even on a overcast day.

If you are visiting Edinburgh I recommend travelling by train just for the experience of travelling over this brilliant piece of engineering.
