      This was a great package that gave us access to all the sites we wanted to see and more. The buses came very frequently and the city didn't have too much traffic slowing us down. Highly recommend if you're wanting to visit Brittania, Holyrood and the castle.

      Had a great time touring around Edinburgh with the hop on and off buses. We had the ticket that covered the 3 different tours. Really great tour guides and bus drivers on each trip, special shout out to Jonny and Faye on the Edinburgh tour bus who were excellent, both went out of their way to make the tour special. Really recommend this tour to get around the city and learn more about Edinburgh's rich history!

      We bought the package that included 2 days rides on the three different lines, the Edinburgh castle, Hollyrood palace and the Royal Yacht Britannia. It was an easy transaction and everything worked perfectly. We always enjoy the Hoho in various cities.

      Hop On Hop Off is always the best way to see the City. The staff and drivers in Edinburgh were some of the best!! They were so kind and helpful. We bought a 48 hour ticket with entrance tickets to Castle, Holyroodhouse, Brittania yacht and then the next 2 days we bought 24 hour tickets to see more of the City. Well worth the money!

      This ticket allowed 48 hour access for 3 different tours, entry into the Edinburgh castle, Holyrood Palace and Britannia. This was the best value. The drivers and tour guides were very nice and entertaining! Would recommend this all access ticket!

      Really convenient, great value and allowed us to plan our trip in advance. I would recommend. It allowed us to move around the city and visit three landmark locations with great ease. All Customer Service Assistants I spoke with were polite, knowledgeable and helpful.

      Had just 3 nights to spear in this beautiful town so we try to make the most of it. The tour buses are amazing. You can reach all the historical locations with them and also learn about the history of this amazing place. The green buses have life guids who are so so friendly and entertaining. The red and the blue buses are operated guides in multiple languages with headphones wich you can pick up from the bus. The staff are very professional helpful and going above and beyond for you. All trips are well organised and easy to found. The trip to the castle was the biggest and longest from all. Holyrood Palace it is just amazing and the last but not list is the Britannia Yacht visit was a real pearl of history to visit. This 48 hours tickets are the best if you want to see this gorgeous town and learn about his history in budget. Thank you for all of the staff to made our trip stress free and relaxing. High recommended.

      We enjoyed the Royal Hop-on Hop-off excursion during the very busy New Years Eve /Hogmanay weekend. Everyone we spoke to was kind, courteous, and helpful! The advanced tickets were a trip saver for such a busy weekend!

      Three busses with different routes but so worth the money! We managed to see all the attractions (Edinburgh Castle, Royal Yacht Britannia & Palace of Holyrood). Green bus tour guide was fantastic! would recommend the Royal Edinburgh Ticket - well worth the money. The ticket is valid for 48 hours - so you can activate at 1 pm on the first day and it's valid until 1pm on the third day, so that was really good.

      If you're clueless about what to see and where to go - this is a very handy option. I didn't want to walk 50 miles a day to see everything I wanted to see - this provided the perfect solution. Enough stops, close enough to major attractions that you just hop on and then get off when you've reached something you wanted to see, then get back on again and head off the the next attraction. I booked the 48 hour pass that came with entrance to Holyrood and Edinburgh Castle and the Britiannia. Definitely worth the money.
