Good value for the price and a great way to see the city. Very grateful for a rest from all the steps and steep hills in Edinburgh. Beautiful city and a great tour.

great facility for touring around the city, my advice is first taking a hop-off at Edinburgh castle where you would appreciate a spectacular view from the top of the hill overlooking the whole city! You can't miss it! Later go for St.Giles or other great places around. Friendly staffs and helpful in pointing out local directions to us the foreigner. Highly recommend this trip to all who are going for Edinburgh.

An amazing way to see and learn about Dublin, and some Irish history. What makes this Dublin tour unique is that the drivers do the talking, there's no listening on ear phones to some recorded story! The drivers are funny, and they sing! Really an excellent experience, I would highly recommend it.

Wonderful bus tour of Edinburgh, not as extensive as my last trip, as they no longer go down George Street but a great and informative thing to do if you are in Edinburgh. With the ability to get on and off at many worthwhile sights. I highly recommend it..
