Perfectly tailored to our expectations...

Our guide, Gordon, was personable, funny and interesting and knew an incredible amount about the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. He started by asking us exactly what we hoped to get out of the tour and adapted as required. We were full of questions and he always knew the answers as well as having many interesting or amusing anecdotes that made the tour more interesting than being told a stream of dates and facts. We had a tremendous time and couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thanks Gordon!

3 Tours in 1! Best Decision for Edinburgh Tour Ever!

We have been to Edinburgh twice before and have mainly focused on the Royal Mile along with Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. This time we opted for the Hop on Hop Buses and bought the Grand Tour (3 tour bus companies for 1 price) so we could take 3 different routes. 2 had audio guides and 1 had a live tour guide. Fantastic decision as we saw parts of Edinburgh that were hidden to us before. Booked the tickets before the trip and it worked like a charm!

An excellent introduction into this interesting city.

Took a 24 hour ticket and did all 3 tours in a day. This is the best way to introduce yourself to the city pointing out the highlights. Should have taken the 48 hour ticket and made more use of the Hop on Hop off option. But hey -ho, because of this tour will be back in Edinburgh to take in the attractions and actually visit more of them.

Brilliantly spooky fun, a must if you visit Edinburgh.

So glad I booked this tour. Great fun led by a very knowledgeable guide who worked both floors of the bus really well. The bus itself really looks the part and adds to the whole ecperience. Education, storytelling and comedy all rolled into one. I will definitely do this again next time I visit.

The best way to see Edinburgh is from the top deck of a double decker

This is an inexpensive way to see Scotland's capital city, the commentary provided gives a good account of the city's history. These buses run every 15 minutes & with a hop on hop off service there,s plenty to see & do.
