Do not book will cancel 30 mins before you go.
Oct 2019
We were on limited days in Edinburgh. 30 mins before the tour company calls the hotel where I am staying at to say that the driver was sick. Did not even have the courtesy to talk to me directly rather left a message to wash their hands of the situation. I can not believe that a company this big does not have back up drivers or a manager who should have taken over the route. I wasted one hour time trying to get a hold of them via the hotel only to be told to book another day. I was leaving next day. We could have gotten on another tour if they had the decency to let us know earlier. Very unprofessional not to speak to me directly on the phone. They refunded it but left us scrambling to find something to do. Unacceptable.

We whole heartedly apologise for the very rare last minute cancellation due to our driver guide calling in sick. Everyone on board was offered the opportunity of a similiar tour with a different operator where we would still offer the pickup service and take you to the starting point or alteratively a full refund and the opportunity to take a tour with us complimentary on a different day. Passengers who leave us a direct number at the time of booking are contacted directly but if you booked through your hotel then we would have no choice but to contact you via them. Unfortunatley we are not in a position to have standby drivers and if we did then of course we would have chosen this option rather than cancel. We are a local Edinburgh company that are a small part of the international Gray Line Organisation and hope we have the chance to impress you in the future.

Jamie outlander and history in one. Door to door service
What a great way to discover history, see Outlander related sites and be entertained on the way.
Jamie was faultless, professional and interesting to listen to, the day went so fast. Perfect amount of time at each location. Being an outlander fan he talked about the events that happened there as well as making history live.

Take some money for some entry to castles as it is worth while. There is a small discount due to being on the tour.

Also if it is Sunday, take time to look in at St Michael’s church Linlithgow as they had fantastic apple pie on their produce bench for 50p. Good to support them and great views.

We were picked up on time and dropped off after the tour even though we were out at Western harbour.

Book your tickets online and do it early in the day as the plan the pick up route. We booked late, they were very helpful and called us, then changed the route to fit us in.

We found the food prices acceptable so no need to take your lunch, there plenty of spaces to eat if you do though.

Well done grey line tours.

Fabulous Tour!
Sep 2019 • Friends
GREAT tour and highly recommended. Jamie is an excellent storyteller and integrated music perfectly into each stop. I am a history lover and was thrilled with the amount of Scottish history we learned along the way. The views were amazing, and I was pleasantly surprised at how close the locations were to each other so that most of our time was spent in the different locations and not on the bus. The best value of all our tours for sure!

Great experience for Outlander and Non Outlander fans
Sep 2019 • Couples
This has been our first trip to Scotland and were to experience the Outlander tour with a guide named Jamie of all things!!! He even wore a kilt!! He was a wealth of information on the tv show and on the Scottish countryside and the history of Scotland itself!!!! We thoroughly enjoy this experience with Gray Line Scotland and will highly recommend it to friends of ours!!!!

I even got to kiss Jamie!!!

Priceless Outlander experience
Aug 2019
I would highly recommend! Me & my friend had an amazing time on this tour visiting the sites from the Outlander as well as learning about Scottish culture, history and nature. Jamie, our tour guide was phenomenal, thanks to him we laughed and learned a lot, you could see the true passion for the people and the job! The tour is very well made, not a long bus drive and lot to see, a good balance of free and guided time. All in all a wonderful time!

Nice tour
Aug 2019
It was nice seeing a bit of the countryside and some castles. To call this "Outlander"-Tour was a bit of a scam though. I understand that theme-tours make better revenues. But our driver emphasised right at the start that he has not seen the series and is not knowledgeable about it. We also did not like him checking his mobile on the motorway several times. Bringing a whole bus of people in danger in order to be updated on social media should not be worth the risk. The tour itself was nice, but for sure no Outlander-tour.

Thanks for joining us on our new for this year "Outlander" one day tour. We may still be trying to persuade some of our driver guides just how amazing the Outlander TV show is, but they are certainly armed with information on each scene at all the main attractions filmed in the series where our tour visits. I urge you to contact us for further information on the allegations of phone use while driving as I can assure you that we take the safety of our passengers, staff, vehicles and of course other road users extremely seriously and once we have more information we can start an investigation to ensure anyone driving our vehicles acts responsibly at all times on the road. We always rely and appreciate feedback whether that be positive or negative to allow us to continually improve our service and hope to welcome you back in the future.

Outlander joy!
Jun 2019 • Solo
The tour lived up to expectations and our guide Jamie was a mie of information about the Jacobite period of history. The tour was really well organised with pick up and drop off right outside my guest house. It was my first proper visit to Scotland and I was blown away by the stuccning scenery. 'Cranesmuir' was outstanding and looked so much like the village in the series. But 'Lallybroch' just left me speechless. I could just picture Clare sitting on the steps when she came back before going to find Jamie, and when she and Jamie first rode through the stone arch in season 1. Loved it.

Jamie, our driver and historian, provided us with much more history than just the filming sites for Outlander. He went out of his way to make the tour very memorable.
