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

You definitely have to go on this tour! The paintings are beyond belief. When listening to the audio, you're amazed at what details and facts are mentioned in the various paintings. I highly recommend this tour/experience!

The hop on off bus was great way to get around and see sites. Very informative the guides where great always felt welcome aboard.
