Tour Of Edinburgh, Scotland

Leisurely Edinburgh
(Tour NWHE1111 Provided by Norwegian Cruise Lines, Approx. Duration: 3-1/2 Hours Level 1, 8:30 AM - 1:45 PM, Adult $75, Child $49).
This is a perfect option to get to know Edinburgh for those who may not be able to negotiate walking and climbing. A narrated drive introduces you to the historic capital of Scotland. You'll take in the main city sights and get an interesting overview of Edinburgh. Your tour takes you through the Old Town descending eastwards along the ridge from the castle. This is the historical ara known as the "Royal Mile" where you drive along Castle Hill, Lawnmarket, High Street and Cannongate passing delightful multi-storied houses and quaint side streets. In the area of the old town, you'll get a flavor of what 16th and 17th century Edinburgh was like -- a cramped, impossibly crowded area of tall buildings on either side of the mile of road between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood. At one end of the Royal Mile you'll see splendid and regal Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the Queen when she pays official visits to Scotland. Drive to the top of Arthur's Seat from where you'll have a marvelous view of Edinburgh Castle standing proudly on its soaring rock. This notable landmark, dominates old town and the entire city. You'll also drive along Princess Street, flanked by shops and beautiful garden parks as you continue to Georgian New Town where in the late 18th century, prosperous Edinburgh commissioned the finest architects to create a city of classical buildings, tree-lined squares and crescents linked by wide streets that exude elegance and harmony.
