My husband & I went on this trip. In the description it says Kings Cross Rail Station & Kings Cross is huge. We had taken the underground from our hotel and this trip is international which is across the street. So give yourself enough time to find the correct check-in point. It will be at the information center between the platforms for international above ground trains. Once we figured out the meeting point the remainder of the trip went well. It is self guided so once you check in you will be given your tickets to board the appropriate train and off on your own from there. The train should be about 4 hours there and back however on our way back it ended up being a little more than 6 due to a train ahead of us having some trouble. So be aware that transportation could have delays. I would definitely recommend this trip as the Edinburgh Castle is great and the hop on hop off bus was perfect since its a day trip.

Not quite what I expected. Arriving at 11:20 then leaving by 5pm was not enough time. You could book a train yourself and do the excursion. Self guided tour was too short.
