This was a great way to explore Edinburgh. We went all the way around on each bus deciding where we wanted to back and visit. On Sunday we had live guides who were excellent and very informative. On Monday we had only the headphone recording which I did no care for.

It's good to hear how much you enjoyed our live guided Edinburgh Tour - always our top recommendation for English speaking visitors. Our multi-language tours are popular for those who want to find out about the city in their own language. I like your opening line describing our tours as a great way to see Edinburgh - we agree. Many thanks Elaine

Took the green bus with Jim as our bus guide to Holyroodhouse Palace, which is a beautiful place. Husband realized he left his cell phone on the bus while we were on the tour of Holyroodhouse. Hours later back at Waverly Bridge we saw a green bus and Leslie from the 1st bus.

This was the most convenient and efficient way to see the city especially if just staying for a few days. It is also economical; although everywhere is within walking distance if you are the type to explore.

Thanks for your 5 star review of our Royal Edinburgh Ticket. You'd have to be a really keen walker to want to get down to Britannia then back up to the Castle, glad you found our tours useful and good value. Many thanks Elaine
