Great activity to do. You get to see all around Edinburgh and get on and off at your leisure. Even better that we found out we could use 2 other buses with this ticket and that they lasted for 24 hours. Very much worth it!

I had a great time, the drivers are very polite, the routes are interesting. I will remember this time for a long time.

Excellent services but better to buy your tour tickets at pick up points works out cheaper than buying on line thanks

Very well explained and entertaining conductor on the Edinburgh tour
