    Great value for money to use 3 bus services and for 48 hours it was great value. The attractions were all very good , bought separately this has saved us about £50 and we used the bus all day on both days to go to different areas of the city and not just the attractions

Do it! Honestly I booked this tour under duress. My son wanted to look for Nessie (eye roll) and I didn't want to spend all that time on the bus. But the hours on the bus passed very quickly. Stuart, our tour guide and driver, was a very erudite and entertaining host. He talked about films, music, books and history and geography in a very interesting and low key way. And of course we get to get off the bus to see a very beautiful part of the world. I really recommend it.

Was on this tour on Saturday, 25 September…… absolutely brilliant. Our guide regaled us with beautiful stories about the history of Scotland, the story of Robert the Bruce…. Absolutely captivating. The bus was super comfy, and the driver absolutely brilliant. Excellent value for money. Our tour guide was Andrew G and the Driver Jim D. Very well done guys!!!!!!!
