Very fun, very cool! Maybe a slightly more detailed
Map would be nice and have a covered top level. But it was fun!
Great choice! We can hop on hop off any bus, route and people are nice and friendly. Thanks Scotland!
A great value and a great choice for us. Loved the castle, yacht and palace and had hop on hop off privileges to all the buses and routes. Well worth it.
Very helpful drivers and useful headphones for the tours. Bad weather, but the fact that the top decks of some of the tours buses were half-roofed helped a lot.
These buses are a great way to get an overview of the old town and out to Leith for the royal yacht. We were not able to get into Holyroodhouse since HRH is currently staying there but we will go back later to tour. It was fun to watch the attendees at the Royal garden party. There is something very sexy about guys in kilts. Not so much ladies in funny hats. The tour of Edinburgh Castle was fascinating and informative and would be a hit with kids. The tea room was a very fine respite from the rain. The royal yacht Britannia is not to be missed. It was a view into the mostly private part of the royal family's lives and is a fun tour for kids. The 48 hour time period to ride the buses was a big plus. We stretched it over 3 days from noon on the first day to noon on the third day. There is some overlap of the routes but we found that to be helpful when we started walking the city as it all seemed familiar. We took each bus all the way around on the first ride and then got off and on where we liked on subsequent rides. We preferred the recorded tours because they were easier to hear. Since the live tour guide was riding on the upper level and we were on the lower level to keep out of the rain hearing was a problem. I have mentioned rain. It has rained every day but Edinburgh is used to that and it didn't keep us from going wherever we liked. That said, it also doesn't rain constantly so it's fine if you have good rain gear with you.

This was a great value. We were able to visit the Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the royal yacht. We used the hop on/off bus both days to get us prom place to place, as well as riding a the complete loop on a couple of the lines.
This tour was very worthwhile. We travelled on all four buses and got a really good overview of the city. The advance tickets for the castle, Royal yacht and the palace meant we skipped some very long lines. While it rained off and on during our 48 hours that didn't cause any problems. It was very atmospheric. Also we took advantage of the hop on buses to get out of the worst of the rain. The 48 hours is truly 48 hours. We started off at noon one day and ended at noon two days later. We did as others suggested and rode the entire route before deciding where to hop off. It worked nicely to get us oriented. This is well worth booking.
What a deal! I only wish we had had more time. The drivers were charming, the tours interesting and informative and the sights too wonderful to describe. this was an excellent value and our skip the line ticket to Edinburgh Castle was worth the whole price.
Its an easy way to explore the city.
The best, but a bit pricy. WE got a two day deal, because you need two days to see everything. Also, be sure and ride it once all the way around with a guide to hear the history. It is well worth it, and a great way to hop around.

Great opportunity to see the sights with one set of buses easy to distinguish. Viator didn't offer much of a dscount. The price was 51 GBP directly. PLUS the palace was closed due to Royal Week - paid for an attraction I could not visit - the site and tour should have advised and not sold tickets to that attraction.
Great way to see the main attractions - the Royal Yacht Britannia was a wonderful experience - complete with cream tea !
The Hop on Hop Off bus was very good taking us around the city to get our bearings.
Excellent way to see Edinburgh in just a day.

Gotta say Hop on Hop off is a great way to see a city if time is limited.....Edinburgh Castle is a must see.

Lots of fun....saw a lot in a short period of time.
This tour worked out well for our group of 6 people and we felt like it was wroth the money
holyrood house and the royal yacht were my favorites. enjoyed the history in the yacht especially. didn't realize the royal family had a royal yacht since the 1600's. royal tour worth the price of the ticket.
This is the only way to see Edinburgh so easy to hop on and hop off, tour guides excellent, bus guides no queuing and the whole experience highly recommended.
