made our trip easy and no waiting in lines. All staff incredibly helpful and polite. well done !
I would highly recommend buying this ticket. Helped us get the most out of the time we has in Edinburgh x
In rating the cities we visited, we all agreed Edinburgh was the most fascinating for historical and entertainment value. The Hop-On Hop-Off tour with admission to the three venues was excellent and went by all the places we or anyone else would want to visit. The narrator was both entertaining and knowledgable. We never had any issue getting a bus, however there was a bit of a challenge on April 16 due to a marathon. Highly recommended.
This was a great value for seniors and very convenient. It allowed us 5 different bus lines and we used 3 of them over 2 days. Buses came quickly, drivers were helpful, and the access to the 2 castles and the Royal Britannia saved us time getting tix at the venues. We stayed right near the Waverley Station and picked the buses up each morning there. Great fun!!
Brilliant value-for-money tour. We enjoyed 48 hours of sightseeing all the major sights of the city - including the Castle and Holyrood Palace and Royal Yacht Britannia on the Quuens 90th as an added bonus. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to see as much as possible with limited time availability
Preis-Leistungsverhältniss war gut, Orga spitze
Absolutely brilliant. Royal yacht very interesting. Thank you.
Excellent well worth the money
Great way to travel around the City and get your bearings as to where the main sites are.
Would certainly recommend the Green Hop on Hop off bus, great live commentary from knowledgeable staff.
Glad we booked in advance as we did save on the price of entrance tickets to Castle ect.
Have booked with Viator on a number of occasions and would certainly recommend as professional service throughout.

Great way to see Edinburgh! Different lines to choose so you can cover most of the must sees in Edinburgh. The attractions that are included with the tour make the price a great value. I enjoy the leisure pace of hop on/off tours because you can choose where you want to spend the most time. The ticket booth was easy to find and access and buses came by fairly frequent considering it wasn't the tourist season.

The castle was cool, as was the palace, but the surprise of the day was the H.M.Y. Britannia yacht. The tours were fine, but a bit difficult to understand especially on the busses with pre-recorded commentary.
Saw lots of Edinburgh. Got to pick and change between 3 bus routes which was great.
The Hop-On Hop-Off Tours were very handy given the short amount of time we had to see everything. However, some of the bus stops could be clearer but when in doubt return to Waverley Bridge because all of them depart from there. The Edinburgh Castle Admission was practical even though when there weren't any queues when we went. However, since we didn't stop at the ticket booth we had to look for a map as there weren't any at the entrance. Even though the castle tour could be done without the audio tour, I was disappointed that this wasn't included in our admission. Overall, it was a great experience!
This tour allows you to HOHO buses of all operators in the town. This makes sense because each operator operates on different routes and the HOHO pass allows you to explore the pass on all routes. Buying a HOHO pass from a single company may restrict one to a particular route. Further, the entry tickets for HMS Britannia, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace can be used even after the expiry 48 Hrs., which is good considering that one does not have to rush through all the places.

This was a fascinating insight into the Royal Family and household. It was wonderful to be able to see the Royal apartments and learn about the traditions and daily routine of the royals that stayed on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. Great audio commentary too. Would highly recommend.
Doing what: The Royal Yacht Britannia
Hop-On Hop-Off was very good to figure out where things were located and to gain insight into the history of Edinburgh. It made getting around town easier. I was able to do all of the routes which allowed me the opportunity to see more of the area.
The hop - on hop - off tour in Edinburgh was amazing. Staff did an outstanding job. I had the opportunity to see and do everything I wanted to do while I was there. Can not wait to return in a year or two to enjoy the Military Tattoo and all the events that surround that show ..... You can bet I will be taking the hop - on hop - off bus to go everywhere!
An amazing value! Everyone - from TOMMY at the ticket booth - to the tour guide - were MOST friendly and helpful!
Had a wonderful day at castle ,walked down Royal Mile to Holyrood palace. Used hop on / off bus to see the Britannia ship-great time, then did 3 routes around Edinburgh. Worth the value of ticket.
We had great tour guides and it was wonderful hearing about the many great sites.
Excellent value trip, saw 3 of the main attractions
This tour was amazing!

Fast track entry to main attractions was not necessary due to the time of year. The bus drivers on each segment were not helpful when loading/unloading at each stop. We didn't know which way to go to get to the attraction.
