* A traveler said: "Murray, our driver from Aura Journeys was wonderfully flexible in giving our group of 6 adults choices about what we wanted to see while in Edinburgh. Our first choice was the magnificent Castle which we were able to tour first with pre-ordered, timed tickets. Murray then took us to an area with several restaurants for our lunch. We saw the Royal Mile, then split up as the women shopped and the men visited the Royal Yacht Britainia. Edinburgh left us wanting to return another day as there is so much to see."
