Rainy day in Edinburgh, WONDERFUL tour. Next year we are going to do all three tours!
We really enjoyed the tour. It was a great way to see the major city sights. The tour guides were excellent and told great stories about the city along the route. It was great that the tickets were for a 24 hour period because we took part of the tour the next day since we ran out of time the first day. The best seats are on the open-air top deck, but if the weather is rainy there is nothing wrong with the seats below stairs. Dress accordingly!
My husband and I enjoyed our hop on and off tour. The live commentator was wonderful and we easily visited every site on our Edinburgh agenda.
Great way to see Edinburgh. Pace, price, and number of stops exceeded our expectations.
Great guides! Couldn't have been better! Highlight of my trip!!!!!
I loved the Horrible Histories commentary on this tour. It is aimed at children but it provides light entertainment on the history of the sights being passed and is so much more interesting than the adult version of the commentary. The bus goes past all the main sights of Edinburgh and gives you the opportunity to get off and spend more time at any of the sights that interest you. I always recommend that you do a full circuit to check out what there is to see then later on get off at the places you'd like to explore more.
The Hop on Hop off buses were great. Very convenient. I wish we had something like those buses in Indiana.
Hop On Hop Off tours are always the best way to see each city and Edinburgh was no exception. Its a beautiful city, with many interesting stops along the way.
Great way to see Edinburgh. We just got a one day pass for the city route and this was enough.

Recommended for travellers with limited time. Informative.
Great way to get your bearings. I went as soon as I arrived for a one-week stay and it helped me throughout my stay to have a sense of the city layout.
Nice opportunity to see alot of the very easily. No problem finding person on Waverely bridge to redeem voucher. Took the bus with live commentary and very happy with that choice.
Great way to initially orientate yourself with the city. The guide was interesting and informative with his commentary - great value!
The buses ran at frequent intervals. All of the stops were located in locations close to the attractions and the commentary was informative and entertaining. It is a bargain compared to guided tours. I would recommend.
Very interesting and informative we managed 4 out of 5 tours thoroughly enjoyed them all! Brilliant value for money.
Great day definitely worth it, our tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable
This tour picks you up at the train station and takes about 1 and 1/2 hours to complete. I used it to see the City before I visited the Castle. It has about 9 stops and the bus offers several languages with the use of ear buds. The historic info is also displayed on a screen on the fist deck of the bus, but the best views and the best pictures are from the upper deck.
Very well organized service. Highly recommended.
Perhaps can extend the time until 8.00 PM in summer.
Great way to see the city if you are not a walker. Live guide gave a great overview of the history of the city. I was able to they go back and visit the areas that where of interest to me.
