Perfectly tailored to our expectations...

Our guide, Gordon, was personable, funny and interesting and knew an incredible amount about the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. He started by asking us exactly what we hoped to get out of the tour and adapted as required. We were full of questions and he always knew the answers as well as having many interesting or amusing anecdotes that made the tour more interesting than being told a stream of dates and facts. We had a tremendous time and couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thanks Gordon!

Edinburgh: Private Guided Walking Tour Reviewed by

The best way to start your visit at a spesific destination!

We bought a 48-hour Hop-on-hop-off Bus-pass and took full advantage of all the routes (red, green & blue). After doing the Red-route first, you can decide what you want to do/see and when. This is so easy! Information via audio-phone and/or live commentary, is excellent and we learnt so much! This Pass even included entrance-tickets to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace as well as the Royal Yacht Brittania in Leith Harbour, just wonderfull! Don't hesitate, just do it!

A great way to learn the history and experience the sights of Edinbur.

Very informative tours of all the sights of Edinburgh. My third trip using this service and it has improved so much. An excellent service for anyone with walking difficulties as the hilly terrain could be taxing. Enjoyed it immensely but would have liked more than 24 hours to see the sights. We were stuck in traffic due to the Royal Garden Party so missed seeing the gallery. We would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to other visitors.

Excellent option. Informative and affordable

The buses run frequently and you really can hop on and off. The guides, real people, are knowledgeable and very helpful ensuring we didn’t miss the long history of Edinburgh. All questions were answered and they were so engaging made you excited about history. The drivers moved at an appropriate pace so that you could take in the commentary. We will certainly be using this service on our next trip.

Easy to use and no waiting in line to access attractions.

Hop on, hop off buses were very convenient, came frequently and had friendly, helpful bus drivers. Really enjoyed the Royal Botanical Garden and the Britannica. We would probably not gotten to these sites were it not for the bus. It was convenient to not have to wait in line for tickets, vouchers all accepted easily. Also saved some money on other attractions when showing your voucher stub.
