Fantastic way to see the sights and learn a bit about wonderful Edinburgh. You can hop on and off throughout the day to spend more time exploring the sights that interest you. The live guide is fun and informative.

I always enjoy using sightseeing buses when I am exploring cities. It is worth the money for even just one day. It helps to give you a good overview of the whole city and gives your feet a break!

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
