Excellent option. Informative and affordable

The buses run frequently and you really can hop on and off. The guides, real people, are knowledgeable and very helpful ensuring we didn’t miss the long history of Edinburgh. All questions were answered and they were so engaging made you excited about history. The drivers moved at an appropriate pace so that you could take in the commentary. We will certainly be using this service on our next trip.

Fantastic way to see the sights of Edinburgh.

Great value, well organised, friendly & helpful staff. A relaxing way of sightseeing in comfort. Live commentary by Ian was particularly entertaining. The headphones provided by drivers were very comfortable. Buses arrived promptly & were clean & modern. Fast track tickets to 3 venues very useful. Our favourite was Royal Yacht Britannia, especially the afternoon tea! We would highly recommend it!

Easy to use and no waiting in line to access attractions.

Hop on, hop off buses were very convenient, came frequently and had friendly, helpful bus drivers. Really enjoyed the Royal Botanical Garden and the Britannica. We would probably not gotten to these sites were it not for the bus. It was convenient to not have to wait in line for tickets, vouchers all accepted easily. Also saved some money on other attractions when showing your voucher stub.

An excellent introduction into this interesting city.

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.

Brilliantly spooky fun, a must if you visit Edinburgh.

So glad I booked this tour. Great fun led by a very knowledgeable guide who worked both floors of the bus really well. The bus itself really looks the part and adds to the whole ecperience. Education, storytelling and comedy all rolled into one. I will definitely do this again next time I visit.
