I took my best friend to Edinburgh for the night for her birthday and bought this tour as an extra surprise (we love that kind of thing). We all met at a set location for 7.30pm and the tour started right at that meeting point. You go from place to place and the host tells you the history of each location, covering topics such as witchcraft, body snatchers and ghost sightings. It was such a different experience to anything I’d done before and I would highly recommend it for couples, friends or family. I think it would scare younger children so I wouldn’t take them along. Most of the places we visited had really uneven ground so make sure you have sensible shoes on and also a warm jacket. The host really made all the difference to the experience and he was fantastic at his job! His character was perfect for the tour.

My ticket gave me access to 3 buses, which I think is necessary to know Edinburgh in depth. The Red bus is without a guide and goes to the Old Town Castle area. The yellow bus, Majestic, goes to the Ocean Terminal and the harbour. Finally, the guided tour is the green bus. Edinburgh is a compact city, but I feel all three buses were necessary to know the town in depth.

Very informative tours and great to have 3 options to choose from. Opportunity to hop on and off and theres plenty of warning before approaching stops.

We were on three different bus tours. We enjoyed them all, possibly the one that had a live tour guide givinginfo was best. All tours were good

Staff were friendly and helpful, the bus was kept very clean with wiping down in between each trip. The commentary was very informative.
