About this activity

Sip afternoon tea with a selection of snacks as you go around the Scottish capital in a vintage bus tour of Edinburgh. Indulge in optional gin cocktails while admiring the beautiful sites of the city.

Full Description 

Enjoy a sophisticated afternoon tea with a refreshing gin “pot-tail” (a cocktail in a teapot for larger parties) of your choice, served from the onboard trolley bar on a guided bus tour. Tuck into an afternoon tea consisting of a sandwich, petit fours, cupcake, warm scones, and mini quiches. Get a warm welcome from the bus staff with a glass of prosecco. Sit back, relax, and indulge your senses whilst taking in magnificent sites of the city like Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish Parliament Building.

With this afternoon tour, indulge in 2 traditional British classics – tea and gin – based on the option you choose. If you upgrade to the gin option, get flavoured gin cocktails supplied by Edinburgh Gin Company served in teapots with aromatic herbs and topped with dainty edible flowers.

Treat your taste buds to traditional scones with fresh whipped cream and jam, a selection of finger sandwiches, mini rolls or wraps, mini quiches, and a selection of petit fours and cakes, all washed down with as much tea and coffee as you can drink.
