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

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.

I took the entire loop of the Edinburgh Tour to find out where and what I wanted to see. An invaluable resource for the City

We we're disappointed that the narrative was taped, would have preferred a live tour guide. The narrative was out of sync with the location of the bus as well.

We love HOHO bus tours to get oriented in a new city. That was equally true for Edinburgh, especially in our jet lagged state! It was a perfect way to get the lay of the land and figure out the definite places we wanted to go in the following days. it was a recorded narration with headphones, which droned a little at various points, but that may well have been the exhaustion talking!

Always good to do this whenever you arrive in a city as it is a great way to get your bearings and to see the city

, Aug 2018

Good way to see the entire City the entire day.

I cant leave a review because while we tried to change our day, we were never able to get through to the tour company because they do not answer their phones. Viator did their part immediately and even kept in contact with us, provided alternate numbers but we were never able to get them to answer our calls.

, Aug 2018

Tour was great and covered the best spots around Edinburgh. Commentary was super clear though some part can be not boring if you are not a history buff.

, Aug 2018

A must do! Fantastic!
