Tours and Tickets by Edinburgh Hop on Hop Off Tours
Overview
An Edinburgh city sightseeing bus tour means you can enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transport and onboard audio commentary—but still explore the sights at your own pace. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, and Arthur’s Seat, or stay on board and take in the views aboard an open-top double-decker bus.

We went on the Edinburgh tour. £32 for 4 the guide was very informative. The green route. It was out of season & so the bus comes round every 30 minutes. You get to see places you might just walk past not knowing their history or use. Ideal for people who don’t want to walk to all the obvious things to see. Great you can get off as & when. We were lucky enough to have lovely winter weather on our tour.

Annefromryder It sounds like you had a lovely sunny day exploring Edinburgh. I am always delighted to hear that we have pointed out places you wouldn't have seen or found out about on your own and that you made the most of the validity of your ticket to hop on and off. Many thanks for choosing our Edinburgh Tour and for taking the time to share your experience here. With best wishes from chilly but sunny Edinburgh Elaine

We were able to choose from 3 different routes, one of which goes righ to the harbour area. There was a live tour guide on one bus, a headset tour on the other. Buses were frequent.

Whenever we visit a new City, and our stay is limited, whether in UK or abroad, we always use a HOHO service; Edinburgh was no exception. First time visit over 3 nights, booked a 48 ticket, embracing 3 routes; Red, Green, Blue. Concessionary cost £22. All buses start from St Andrews Square, just off Princess St, Green route primarily the Old & New Towns with a guide giving commentary, which we found most interesting, especially some of their anecdotes.. Blue route mainly the suburbs, especially useful for visiting the Royal Yacht Britannia at Leith. Red route covers a wider spectrum of the Old & New, and does overlap in parts. Both Red and Blue have an Audio commentary and headphones are provided as you board. The buses themselves are fairly standard that you find in most Tourist Cities and we had no complaint over any aspects of our trips. Did all 3, extending the round trip at times to visit various attractions. The Company provide a simple, but useful map, showing all the stops and a rough timetable. We paid our money and got what we expected. Edinburgh quite compact; each tour lasted approx an hour and well worth the money
