Three of us did the royal tour with Lothian bus tours. The routes were well planned and the commentaries were excellent. The staff at the Waverley bridge and on board the buses were very helpful and considerate. The buses were spotless. On one of the live guided tour the guide was very good at explaining everything on the route. We could not fault the trips even although ther were many traffic situations. These trips are well worth the money and we will do these trips again.

We took this tour over the 2 days we were here. We did pay for the 3 bus route ticket, seemed like the best deal. We definitely enjoyed the green line more than the red line, we found the live tour guide shared some great stories and had great knowledge of the sites we passed, it was also a great way to see Edinburgh and with another bus coming in 15 minutes getting back on was also easy.

Pre booked 48 hour three location ticket (Castle, Holywood and Britannia) -proved real good value and an efficient way of maximising our time in city. The commentary provided gave us a good insight to what we were seeing and as it rained for quite a lot of our time gave us a welcome respite from the wet. All in all one of the better hop on services we have experienced in our many world-wide city breaks.

I was SO impressed at the price and quality of this tour. The ticket lasts for 24 hours and the guides are absolutely excellent. They are full of knowledge and don't run out of things to say even when the traffic is really slow! They also know lots of stuff about opening and closing times of the attractions. They are funny and easy to access. If you want to get to know the city, do this tour! I'm so pleased that we managed to do this on our first day! £15 very well spent!

Pros: 1. Standard hop on-hop off advantage of being able to use the bus multiple times and for 24hrs 2. Box office service is great and professional. Cons: 1. The guide was hard to understand and was making a bit inappropriate jokes at times. 2. It would be great if the bus could have wifi for tourists. Would not cost much but would make the experience better.
