We used the green and red buses and they were just what we needed to help get our bearings and learn about this interesting and attractive city. Our 8 year old was kept well amused via the Horrible Histories commentary on the sightseeing bus. Well done everyone and a special mention for our first guide Neil!

Last week, we were in Scotland and took the hop on hop off bus around the city of Edinburgh. Our guide was TOM and unfortunately, don't remember the excellent driver's name. Tom was terrific! The best guide we had during our British Isles trip. He knew so much about the city (even though he is originally from England) and was... More

This is a great way to discover the city of Edinburgh. If you don't want to wade through the various tourist guide books then this is for you. It offers a whistle stop tour of the main attractions in both the 'New Town' and the 'Old Town'. If there is a particular attraction you want to explore in more detail,... More

We thought we would grab a seat on the Bus and get a Wee Tour but at £14 Each!!! Thats totally Scandalous. Fair enough you can jump on and of as much Times as you like In 24 Hours but in my Opinion thats them taking advantage of Tourists. The old Chap telling us about the Sights and the City... More

The best way to see the city and get your barrings of the city. I recommend the 48 hour deal. They have 5 different buses that you can take in 2 days. I great way to get around town and hop on and off as often as you like. The best ones are with the guides. They are both informative... More

We bought the £48 48 hour ticket which gives unlimited travel for 48 hours and includes entrance into the castle, Holyrood and Brittania. There are about 4 different tours and you can hop on and off and interchange tours. Some come with a guide and some with recorded information. Both are good but all the guides were friendly, well informed... More

Edinburgh's bus and boat tour offers the opportunity to go by tour bus around Edinburgh and head to the small town of South Queensferry. From there you take a trip over and around the Firth of Forth and later enjoy your bus tour back to the City again. Firstly after waiting with anticipation on the bus we were all very... More

The bus tours around Edinburgh are very good, lots of different types of routes to choose from, very well organised and well priced. Of course, it makes a great difference if the weather is nice. And it's really good to be able to get off, look around, then get on the next bus.

Last week me and my family bought the tickets for 24 hours with the Edinburgh Tour and we experienced different guides throughout the day. The last tour that we did was with our guide Madeleine and David the driver. The tour was very interesting and we found out a lot of information about the city and its history. Comparing this...
