City Sightseeing Edinburgh Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
From US$20.42
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.
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 14 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker city sightseeing buses.

The entire circuit takes around an hour and you can jump off at any of the stops along the way to tour the sights, visit the city’s museums, or stroll around the UNESCO-listed Old Town on foot. While on board, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the onboard audio commentary, which will point out all the main attractions along the way and offer background history and fun facts to help you get the most out of your visit.

Great value

We used this and hopped on and off at points we wanted to visit also along the way the guides point out interesting sights and this helps you see Edinburgh in a new light, also shows you areas you wouldn't normally visit or hear about

A nice way to see a lot of the city with good commentary. Has regular buses. Has an upper area for sunny days and a downstairs area if it is wet or windy
