Highlights of Edinburgh City Sightseeing Bus Tour

  • The bus travels around all of Edinburgh's top tourist attractions and locations including Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Calton Hill, Holyrood House, Arthur's Seat and much more – Get your camera at the ready!
  • The audio guide will allow you to hear about the hangings at Grassmarket and hear about historic attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle and so much more of the city's dark history.

Is It Suitable for Me?

  • Great for the whole family – No more complaints of too much walking and tired feet!
  • If you enjoy taking hop-on-hop-off bus tours in other cities, this is much the same and not to be missed as you get from A-B with ease whilst learning about the sights you're passing and the history of Scotland.
  • Good for people who like to make their own itinerary for the day but with the comfort of knowing they won't get lost on public transport!
  • If you're a wheelchair user the hop-on-hop-off tour gets you as close as possible to the top sightseeing attractions without the need to negotiate the steep cobblestone streets.

Your Experience With Edinburgh City Sightseeing Bus Tour?

  • Hop on board the open-top double decker bus at any one of the 14 stops and take your seat either upstairs to enjoy the panoramic views or downstairs if the weather isn't cooperating. Then plug in your complimentary headphones and learn about the history of Scotland and all of the sights that you're passing.
  • You can either take an entire loop to acquaint yourself with the city, this taking between 60-80 minutes, or hop off at one of the stops to go sightseeing before picking the bus up later in the day whether from the same stop you alighted at or one further along the route.
  • The route and well-placed stops allow you to visit Holyrood Castle, the Scott Monument, Burns Monument, Calton Hill, the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland and so much more.
