Edinburgh, the showcase capital city of Scotland, balances the modern with the medieval, offering a potpourri of history, culture, attractions, and nightlife. And you’ll have time to experience it all with the Edinburgh Overnight Tour. Travel by open top bus tour down the Royal Mile to visit Holyrood Palace—once home to Mary, Queen of Scots, and her turbulent-ridden reign. Then it’s time to visit Edinburgh Castle, majestically perched atop an ancient volcano in the city’s center. On Day 2, there’s time for some retail therapy, or perhaps take a self-guided tour of Her Majesty’s Royal Yacht Britannia in the historic port of Leith. From Churchill to Yeltsin, Gandhi to Mandela, some of the world’s greatest influential figures have been welcomed aboard. And since you’re overnighting it, don’t miss out on Edinburgh’s renowned club scene. Or catch an outdoor gig on the lovely Princes Street Gardens with the picturesque Castle as its backdrop.

Q. What is the difference between a flexi pass and a consecutive/continuous pass?
A. A flexi pass is valid for a specific number of travel days to be used within the overall validity period of that rail pass. For example, 15 days of unlimited train travel to be used within a 2-month period. With this kind of rail pass, you can pick and choose any days (they don’t have to be consecutive) to travel within the rail pass’ validity period.
Continuous (or consecutive) rail passes such as the Eurail Global Pass, are valid for unlimited train travel during the whole duration of the pass’ validity period. In other words, with a 15-day Eurail Global Pass, you can travel for 15 consecutive days by train. Even if you don’t take the train each and every day, those days will be considered used
