Overview
An Edinburgh city sightseeing bus tour means you can enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transport and onboard audio commentary—but still explore the sights at your own pace. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, and Arthur’s Seat, or stay on board and take in the views aboard an open-top double-decker bus.
Highlights
  • Convenient hop-on hop-off transport on an open-top double-decker bus
  • 14 city stops include Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, and World's End 
  • Onboard audio commentary ensures you don’t miss anything
  • Buses depart about every 20 minutes: save time for more sightseeing
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 14 stops to validate your 24-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker city sightseeing buses. The entire circuit takes around an hour and you can jump off at any of the stops along the way to tour the sights, visit the city’s museums, or stroll around the UNESCO-listed Old Town on foot. While on board, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the onboard audio commentary, which will point out all the main attractions along the way and offer background history and fun facts to help you get the most out of your visit.
