Amazing walking tour with enthusiastic guide

Since we were but with 4 in total, Simon - our tour guide - had oceans of time to stop and explain every bit of mystery and history surrounding the Royal Mile. We wandered around town, strolling into hidden closes and discovering curious nooks, at a relaxed pace. The guide was able to provide us with plenty information and facts about the Mile and the city of Edinburgh itself, that you immediately feel like you'd lived there yourself for some time. Pity that he had to leave us at the Palace (since no guides are allowed inside), but even there he set us on our way with the audio-guides. In all a great experience, and would definitely recommend this organisation (and this tour)!

3 Tours in 1! Best Decision for Edinburgh Tour Ever!

We have been to Edinburgh twice before and have mainly focused on the Royal Mile along with Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. This time we opted for the Hop on Hop Buses and bought the Grand Tour (3 tour bus companies for 1 price) so we could take 3 different routes. 2 had audio guides and 1 had a live tour guide. Fantastic decision as we saw parts of Edinburgh that were hidden to us before. Booked the tickets before the trip and it worked like a charm!

An excellent introduction into this interesting city.

Took a 24 hour ticket and did all 3 tours in a day. This is the best way to introduce yourself to the city pointing out the highlights. Should have taken the 48 hour ticket and made more use of the Hop on Hop off option. But hey -ho, because of this tour will be back in Edinburgh to take in the attractions and actually visit more of them.

Get away from the crowds & see more of this beautiful city

Our guide was Peter, who is a little disorganized but over compensates with his interest in both the city itself & those taking the tour. He has a number of great facts & stories. The tour takes you away from the maddening crowd & you get to see many vantage points & the city through the lovely parks.

The best way to see Edinburgh is from the top deck of a double decker

This is an inexpensive way to see Scotland's capital city, the commentary provided gives a good account of the city's history. These buses run every 15 minutes & with a hop on hop off service there,s plenty to see & do.
