Fabulous tour bus. Loads of information. Hop off and on any stops. Castle was a must stop. Best way to get around Edinburgh. Been a few times and never been on the bus learnt so much about this amazing city.

We had the 48 hour plus, which included the Forth Bridges and a boat trip, which if you have time in Edinburgh are a must-do. The buses are modern, great commentary, friendly staff and cheaper to buy everything together, with over 60's discount thrown in!

We chose the live guide tour. Kerr was the best tour guide we have ever had on any tour. He was so informative and very funny! We got a tour and a comedy show in one. Highly recommend to everyone!

are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
