Me and my mum both loved the ease of using the hop on and hop off bus service, the tour itself was very interesting and easy to listen to through the ear phones provided. We also thought it was very reasonably priced and would book again when we return to Edinburgh. The driver helped with whatever questions we had I.e. which stop to get off at for different things and gave us directions to help us out which was very much appreciated.

Really great way to see the city and stop at the most well known sightseeing, especially in the rainy weather.

Was able to tour around the city conveniently. The drop points are near the tourist spots.

I did not have a QSR code, only a gyg number; bus driver was very helpful.

Great price and pickup every 10 mins right near our hotel.
