My friend and I had a thoroughly wonderful time in Edinburgh and as we were on a short break we saved so much time using the hop on hop off bus!! There were 3 different routes and between them they covered each venue we wanted to visit. They were on time and the staff were very friendly and informative and a lovely guide called Anne gave us a tip to go into the Dome for a drink which we would have missed otherwise!!!!
I will recommend using this service to my friends.
Well worth booking in advance and planning out our time. Castle was fab as was Royal Yacht Britannia. Easy to use service. Audio guide on the bus was brill. Learned so much. Free audio guide on board the yacht. Good value audio guide for the castle. Excellent
Royal Mile Palace of Holyroodhouse Scottish Parliament Arthur's Seat. Hop-on Hop-off buses are so easy to catch all over town! Very convenient, helps you get your bearings as well. I highly recommend advance purchase of Edinburgh Castle so you don't have to wait in the long line. I took the Hop-On Hop Off to the Royal Mile it drops off right by Edinburgh Castle where there are lots of pubs, restaurants and shopping. Give yourself a few hours at Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh Military Tattoo @ Edinburgh Castle, St. Margaret's Chapel. I had lunch after right by the the Castle at the Witchery, delicious splurge! try and make a reservation ahead of time. Worked by way to Holyroodhouse where Scottish Parliament is as well and you can begin your ascent up to Arthur's seat comfortable hiking shoes, water, camera and give yourself 45 minutes or more for the climb, absolutely worth it!! Sunrise or sunset the best!! Finished with dinner at at Whiski Bar and Restaurant, flights and delicious food!!
This was an amazing way to both get around and see the places you want to see and experience
Needed more time to enjoy Edinburgh...Beautiful Castle. I wasted money on the hop on hop off cause of time issues my fault. We only had a day in Edinburgh and next time, I will plan better...You need more time to experience this beautiful city.
This was an awesome tour - with some planning you can see all of the major sites in Edinburgh in 48 hours with plenty of opportunities for exploration. Once we redeemed the voucher, everything was super easy. They also offer fast-track admission to 3 major sites as well as additional discounts with their partners.
Awesome package! Perfect to discover both the Medieval Town and the Georgian Town.
Using Viator was very easy and efficient, went very seamless and would definately use them again.

Well worth the price - and much cheaper to buy ahead of time on Viator than to wait and buy there. The tours are great, very informative and entertaining. The city is beautiful and the tours of the castle, the palace and the Brittania are extremely well done. Highly recommend!
Well worth investing in this tour as you will never get around everything on foot. It makes it far easier to be able to jump on any of the buses to get around the next part of Edinburgh. My personal favorite was the Royal Yacht which I thought I'd be around in an hour. It turned out to be around 3hrs with a stop off for a beverage on board. Superb and can't recommend it enough.
Thoughly enjoyed the Hop on Hop off and the drivers were very helpful in directing us where the entrances were to the museums, castle and anywhere else we wished to go.
This ticket is just amazing!!! I couldn't get to all the places because I didn't have time, but this ticket is totally worth. You can get to know a lot of Edinburgh. All the tours are great, totally recommended. I will do it again with more time to enjoy it more.

The bus tour is great. We got the lay of the land on the first day, and then knew where we wanted to go after that. Having the yacht and castle tickets as part of the package was very convenient. The one thing you need to know: You'll see multiple buses in different colors. This was confusing to us when we started, because we thought they were different companies, and we didn't know which one we could use our ticket with. It turns out that they are all part of the same company and all honor the ticket. So hop on any bus and have fun!
Great ticket covering all the bus tour lines and skip the line admission to Castle, Palace and Britannia. Friendly drivers and the earphone system is brilliant.
This is really worth the money. We found one of the routes stopped quite near our rented apartment and used that stop as our way to get to the center of town and the other bus routes. The Royal Britannia Yacht was great and we took the advice of a Hop on Hop off employee to have lunch in the dining room there. Loved it.
This tour was well worth the money and enabled us to see far more than would otherwise have been possible in only two days. The ticket included entry to the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh castle and Holyrood Palace and a choice of 4 different bus tours. We saw lots of the city and also went to the royal Horticultural Gardens ans St Arthur's seat. The only trip not included and which we did on our own was to Rosslyn Chapel another great experience. Would highly recommend this tour the Majestic.

Totally recommended, because one day will not be enough to see and enjoy all the beautiful areas I do encourage you to get the 2-day ticket
This was the best purchase I made for our entire 2 week trip to the UK. You can get to everything you could ever want to get to from the buses available with this pass. Not to mention the fast pass for Edinburgh Castle and admission to the Palace of Holyrood. Time did not allow for us to get to the HMY Britannia but we did take the bus that goes out to Leith and the Britannia which was highly enjoyable just in itself. My recommendation is to start your day early because the buses do not run very late into the evening. If I had one complaint it would be the fact that none of the tour buses include evening tours, which would have offered a different view of the city as well as being able to get around easier for more dinner options. Overall, EXCELLENT experience and a MUST buy if you plan to stay in Edinburgh!
Really great value and saved us quite a bit of money. Loved all the attractions.
Great service. Very easy to find where to change our tickets.
The people of Edinburgh is very friendly and make us feel at home. It was a great idea to have hop on/off included, we use it as our public transit as we were only for 3 days and we were able to see many things in short time.
MY favorite city and tour. The Edinburgh Castle was amazing and I could have stayed there all day but we had the Palace too. Both amazing! Have to admit we just did not have enough time for the boat but still feel like my ticket was worth the price and we did not have to wait in line anywhere! Bus driver pointed out all of the highlights and it was easy to get on and off-do not miss this!
We were able to visit all the sites in one day. This ticket was a great help.
