This tour is currently out of season

Full tour takes about 3 hours

This tour runs seasonally, look out for its return in Spring 2018.

Board your bus in the heart of Edinburgh for a tour to South Queensferry, followed by a boat tour aboard the Forth Belle on the Firth of Forth. Enjoy superb views of Edinburgh and Fife’s coastlines as well as the iconic 3 Bridges; the Forth Road and Rail Bridges and the new Queensferry Crossing. Get your camera out and look out for puffins and seals along the way! If you don't see a seal you're guaranteed to sail again FREE.

Why not break your return journey in South Queensferry and discover one of Edinburgh’s coastal gems, before boarding your bus tour to take in the sights of the city on the way back to Edinburgh?

Highlights include:

  • Princes Street
  • New Town
  • Queensferry
  • Forth Railway Bridge
  • Inchcolm Island*
  • Forth Road Bridge
  • Queensferry Crossing (under construction)
  • HMS Queen Elizabeth

*Please note: In order to visit Inchcolm Island you need to purchase a ticket, which can be acquired on board the boat. You will be on the Island for approximately 1 ½ hours before picking up the next boat to complete the rest of the cruise and return to Hawes Pier, South Queensferry and the bus. For this reason it is not possible to visit the Island from the last tour of the day.

Tour start and end times vary according to tides. Please allow at least three hours for your tour (excluding time for a visit to Inchcolm Island). To see the seasonal timetable please download the 2017 tour leaflet here.
