There are 3 different Hop on Hop off trips
The Red Bus gives you the most. A suggestion is to go early (on Princes Street)

Most Hop On Hop Off tours are audio recordings but this one had a real person and she was fabulous. We found the people of Glasgow friendly and the city has none of touristy feeling we experienced in Edinburgh
Although it only hits 10 or so stops this was still a great way to get around and see the downtown area. Very informative narrative recording and clean and frequent buses so you never wait long. Spend time at grass market and walk around.
I have to use my wheelchair when on holiday and was a bit worried that I would not get on the busses,I needn't
have worried the drivers were so kind and helpful they made it so easy for my husband to get me safely on...More
This is a pretty good way of packing in lots of Edinburgh's highlights, leaving you free to hop on and off when they get to a particular place you wish to see in more detail. It's pretty good value. The running commentary is quite good...More
We went on one of the hop-on-hop-off bus tours on our first full day in Edinburgh. It's a great way to get your bearings and to work out what you might want to do for the rest of your stay.

A very handy service to have in a crowded urban area in which you want to sight-see. The audio commentary also adds a nice element to the travel--when it works (on one bus we caught, audio did not work)
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
