It was a fun fulfilling day trip despite the long drive but our tour guide Tanya made it fun and entertaining. Wish we could have stopped at more places to take quick pictures but other than that it was a fun trip!!! Thank you for a great experience!

Tickets were easy to buy online, the pick-up point was clear on the map and the instructions and was very easy to find. The bus was clean, the ear buds new and the driver professional, courteous and very helpful. Would definitely use again.

The bus was a great way to see the city and visit local areas with ease. The commentary was informative and funny as well. Lots of buses so our waits were not very long.

Good service and very convenient for visiting major tourist sites.

a great way to get anoverview of the history of Edinburgh
