What people are saying about Camera Obscura & World of Illusions
Camera Obscura is a must visit if you are in old Edinburgh. Just walking distance from Edinburgh Castle. This building is over 5 floors and every floor is very unique and funny. We loved the Mirror Maze, farting chair and big size mirror. My wife truly enjoyed her day out. The final floor shows the Camera Obscura Show done by Lizzie was amazing. She was very funny and accommodating. She went in details about the camera Obscura invention and showed us around Edinburgh. Overall absolutely lovely.
We have been to Edinburgh twice before and have mainly focused on the Royal Mile along with Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. This time we opted for the Hop on Hop Buses and bought the Grand Tour (3 tour bus companies for 1 price) so we could take 3 different routes. 2 had audio guides and 1 had a live tour guide. Fantastic decision as we saw parts of Edinburgh that were hidden to us before. Booked the tickets before the trip and it worked like a charm!
Took a 24 hour ticket and did all 3 tours in a day. This is the best way to introduce yourself to the city pointing out the highlights. Should have taken the 48 hour ticket and made more use of the Hop on Hop off option. But hey -ho, because of this tour will be back in Edinburgh to take in the attractions and actually visit more of them.
Used the hop on off system to find out locations which we were interested in then planned our outings to suite With a little planning we could visit multiple sights with very little actual footwork. Good commentary and helpful staff. Best way to make most of limited time visit
A great way to spend a couple of hours and great views and insights into beautiful Edinburgh. Lots of family fun and a few giggles. Good luck to anyone who ventures through the tunnel - you’ll see what I mean... I was laughing and almost crying at the same time!!
