Went to Edinburgh on Thursday, went to the Tattoo on Friday, toured the city on Saturday and came home on Sunday. The Tattoo was way above expectations and much better than the TV version, as the atmosphere was absolutely electric throughout. This event is most highly recommended. Just remember to take a Mac!!

My neighbor is from Scotland and told me, "You MUST see and experience the Tattoo. It will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up." I still get goose bumps when I tell people about it. Absolutely fabulous!

Would go to Tattoo again in a heartbeat! So many talented people from all around the globe performing. It was a memorable night with tons of entertainment and so many different cultures represented. The package that included the Scotch Whiskey Experience before the Tattoo was a great choice!

Went to the Military Tattoo from a cruise ship. Went as an excursion because I was concerned about getting a taxi afterwards but I don't think it would have been a problem because once you left the Royal Mile it wasn't that crowded. The event was great! Because of the venue in the Castle Esplanade you felt like you were one of the king's subject visiting the castle and being entertained. All the bands were good but the bagpipes and dancers were very good. The light show on the castle during the performances really added to the spectacle. I had side seating and it was fine. I don't think there are any bad seats. Highly recommend!

Put this on your must tick list ,what a city what an experience. Take one of the many tours available well worth it , tickets are pricey but hey you get what you pay for , when the pipers come out the castle !!! Wow it makes the hair on your neck stand up. Access to the city straight from the airport by tram , great , we stayed at premier inn and had a room at the back over looking the fourth road bridge and beyond lovely. Tick from us something for all the family you gotta go.
