City Sightseeing Edinburgh Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
An Edinburgh city sightseeing bus tour means you can enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transport and onboard audio commentary—but still explore the sights at your own pace. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, and Arthur’s Seat, or stay on board and take in the views aboard an open-top double-decker bus.
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 14 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker city sightseeing buses.

The entire circuit takes around an hour and you can jump off at any of the stops along the way to tour the sights, visit the city’s museums, or stroll around the UNESCO-listed Old Town on foot. While on board, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the onboard audio commentary, which will point out all the main attractions along the way and offer background history and fun facts to help you get the most out of your visit.

Wonderful Experience

I really like the idea of Hop-on Hop-Off tour, during the tour if you feel that place is worth staying more you can simply Hop-Off from the bus, enjoy the place and hope-On to the next one.

Three different routes and the green and gold tour was the best!! There is a live guide which makes it really memorable! Collin and Wayne were the best - both very interesting and knowledgeable! Definitely recommend!!!

great way to see the city

Buses stop at all the hot spots. The route is the perfect length to take a whole trip around once and then do one to hop on and off. The buses came frequently and were well marked on the regular bus stop signs. Definitely recommend...More
