I'd highly recommend getting the 'Grand 24' Ticket. Which can be purchased online or via a tour guide or tourist Information. Valid for 24 hours this enables you to use 3 of the 5 bus tours. 'The Edinburgh Tour' - Green and Yellow bus. The 'Edinburgh City Sight Seeing' & 'The Majestic Tour'. All take you to different sites across Edinburgh and it's states on the side on the buses. Can also be used like a regular bus was you can hop on and off as much times as you like. I only took the full tour with the 'Edinburgh Tour' which was the only one to feature a live tour guide - The other two bus tours do features audio commentary, free headphones can be picked up next to the driver to listen and it has the option of choosing different languages. You can also get a ticket which lasts £48 hours so it depends how long you are staying and which

The different route of the 3 buses was great. I especially enjoyed the in person comments on the History tour bus. The guides added some individual experience.

Took the blue line and used it to go to royal yacht , then back on to holyrood , went to the castle on the second day and did some of the green route

Great tour with lots of interesting facts. Great routes to get to the attractions. Would definitely recommend.

Very good service loved the flexibility of the 3 tours
