We were extremely impressed with the four city tours trips. They are all hop on, hop off, so you can take a tour, work out what you want to visit, and then use these buses to get to the attractions you want to visit again...More

All the staff on the two busses we went on were friendly and helpful. We learned lots of interesting facts about Edinburgh's history and really enjoyed the experience. I'd highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city - definitely worth the money.

Not your average hop on/hop off bus tour! The bus is vintage with an open-air top deck. The tour takes about an hour and hits all the hot spots. The guides (not recorded!) are hilarious! We loved the running commentary! We rode around 1.5 times...More

Get some flexibility and buy a 24/48 hour ticket that will cover a number of tour buses. Kids (teenagers) had a laugh with horrible histories audio. Bit of craic and a good way to get familiar with the city and history.
