    A very well organised and thoroughly enjoyable few hours.Even in these difficult Covid times everything was very good. Staff were extremely helpful and exceptional housekeeping. The tour was not crowded at all and when we were there social distancing was very well observed. It was amazing to see how the Royals lived on the yacht, and I can’t believe how cramped the staff quarters were! It was very very good.and well worth a visit, although the road works getting through Edinburgh are a nightmare at the moment, so allow plenty of time to get there as the Sat Nav doesn’t pick up all the road closures.

    The visit to the yacht was amazing. So interesting and the commentary on the handsets was spot on. Not too long or short. The system devised to move you around the boat was very well done too. So much history and so much to see. Well worth a visit. Worth noting there are lots of steps but a lift is available.

    Well organised, audio guide via head phones or from own phone was excellent. Following this gives you the 90 min duration so all the visitors flowed with no congregations. Very nice to go have afternoon tea - the signs said you needed to be in there by 345pm. I would plan on 330 pm as people were turned away on arrival before 345 pm.
