The bus was good at keeping its schedule at each stop. If you got off, visited a site and waited for another bus to pick you up, it was prompt in showing up. Best attractions in my opinion were the Holyrood Palace and the Parliament Building.

Edinburgh was a beautiful place. Riding the hop-on-hop-off bus helped me see all of it. Stops were right smack the places I wanted to visit.

Pretty nice! Takes you to all the main stop. One tiny thing, this one driver was kinda snippy with his passengers, perhaps he was having a bad day but all in all with recommend this. Merci!

Getting Around
, May 2019
Our cruise ship shuttle dropped us off very close to the Castle, so we started there. After touring the Castle the Hop-On Hop Off bus stop was right there and we handed in our pre booked tickets for the bus. It was an audio commentary but went into detail about all the stops. Great way to see the beauty and history of the City.

We enjoyed the bus tour all staff were really helpful. Lots information through the earphones provided & even TV with subtitles for visitors hard of hearing. It gave us a good insight into the attractions, but we could have walked to most if them & would have liked to see Royal Yacht Britannia, but this bus didn't do that stop, so for £15 each for the tour felt it was expensive.
Very good and practic

It wasn't well informed as to where we could reboard and the weather was bad which did not help either.
Lovely tour

As always the hop on hop off is a great way to get an overview of the city and this was no exception. It was very enjoyable and gave a great overview of the city. Well worth the money.
