Great start for Edinburgh

This is also good for cruise passengers, a lot less expensive than the ship’s excursion. We were on Princess cruise, and the ship was docked at South Queensferry port, about 1 hour away from Edinburgh city. There is a public bus X99 for £6 that picks up cruise passengers at port & directly drops off at St Andrews Square (every 20 min I think). Then we walked about 10 min to Waverly Bridge to catch this HOHO bus. I suggest to get off at #6 stop, which is right at the gate of Edinburgh castle. It’s good to do this early in the morning til noon, but may skip this in the afternoon as the traffic is very slow in the city center. After our own tour, we just walked about 15-20 min from Royal mile back to St Andrews square to catch bus X99. We left National museum at 3pm & got back to the ship by 4:30pm.

We were suppose to be picked up at the ship. Waited for over 1 hour, talked to several officials at the dock, then finally paid for transportation to the town. When we talked to the contact in town they said they do not run out to the ship to pick people up. We showed them the reservation that said we would be picked up by a person with a sign with my name on it, they apologized and told us to contact Viator. The hop on hop off is always a great waay to see a city.
