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!

Helpful staff when collecting the tickets, informative commentary on the tours. Handy for getting about the city. The three attractions were interesting and informative. Top tip - do Britannia and holyroodhouse palace in one day and Edinburgh castle on a different day.
The staff at the start were very efficient and friendly in organising our tickets for the activities. They make the journeys special, a bit of humour,laughing at themselves and always giving interesting facts along the way.
Great activity to do. You get to see all around Edinburgh and get on and off at your leisure. Even better that we found out we could use 2 other buses with this ticket and that they lasted for 24 hours. Very much worth it!
Excellent services but better to buy your tour tickets at pick up points works out cheaper than buying on line thanks
