Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking

  • Please advise your Edinburgh accommodation name and address to allow us to organise our FREE hotel/guest house morning pick-up service for the day your tour departs Edinburgh.
  • You can update your reservation by emailing the information or contacting us on arrival to Edinburgh.
  • We will endeavour to collect from the door to as many hotels and guest houses as possible. If this is not possible, then usually the nearest main road, or certainly a landmark within walking distance.
  • If you are staying outside the city or coming from a private address we can arrange your nearest pick up point.
  • Drop Offs: Although we are happy to collect you in the morning, we are unable to guarantee you will be dropped off exactly where you were picked up at the end of the tour. If you are staying en route back into the city you will be dropped off, the tour driver will discuss this with you. We drop off at convenient points back in the City Centre.
  • Please note that we deploy several vehicles to complete our morning pick-up service and then transport our passengers to the main coach to begin the tour. Therefore, the vehicle you board initially may not be the one that takes you on the tour*

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

Response from Gray Line S, Manager at The Outlander 1 Day Experience
Responded 11 Oct 2019
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.
