  1. Rick Steve’s of course! Why didn’t I think of that! I’ll hit the library tomorrow.
  2. Thank you! Sounds like a perfect day!
  3. Terry, thank you for your post. Great information. We are stopping in Lisbon on our upcoming TransAtlantic. We have a tour of Lisbon planned. In our research, Sintra sounds so lovely we are considering flying back from London to see a Sintra. What would you do in a day & a half? Do you think we would need a rental car? Thanks!
  4. We will be arriving in Southampton on a Saturday in April. Our flight leaves from Heathrow the next day. We are more countryside folk rather than city. We would love to find an excursion that would take us to Salisbury, Windsor and possibly Stonehenge. We are open to other charming stops. I found one company whose prices are £179 each, up to 8 people. The price drops to £140 with 9 or more. (I’ve posted it on our roll call). I’m just wondering if anyone has other suggestions.
  5. We used Ed’s Taxi Tours in Dover. We went to Canterbury, Leeds Castle & the White Cliffs. Ed was knowledgeable and fun! He was able to throw in a few stops we had not requested...a WWII aircraft museum and a Battle of Britain memorial. We put together a group of eight on our Roll Call Board and it was only £56.25 each. It was great!
  6. We used them in Edinburgh & we very happy with our tour. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable & friendly. While I can’t comment on the tour you are thinking of, I would recommend the company based on my experience. Have fun!
  7. And don’t you know...within 5 minutes of posting of this, I got a reply from Rabbies. No need to pre-pay excursions. They get discount tickets for us.
  8. We have a tour booked on Rabbies out of Edinburgh to Rosslyn Chapel & Melrose Abbey. I know we are responsible to pay the admissions to attractions. Is it advisable to pre-purchase these tickets to save time? I emailed Rabbies but haven’t gotten an answer. Thanks!
  9. Thank you so very kindly! I think we will take a taxi to be sure we get there in time for our scheduled visit. You are so helpful, Tartan! We appreciate you taking time to help us!
  10. Thank you all for the good information! I was apprehensive about DIY in Edinburgh...but with your good recommendations, I think we can do it! We will prebook tickets to the castle & palace. Starting from the castle, we will spend 2-3 hours there. Then mosey down the Royal Mile, being sure to see Canongate church and St. Giles Cathedral. Then head down to the palace. My question is, what is the best way to actually get to the castle to start our day? I read about the ship’s shuttle and about buses. But I don’t know exactly where they let off passengers. If a taxi is the only way to get directly to the castle, does anyone have an estimate of the taxi fare? Thank you all so much!
