Customer Reviews

  • Anita Subtil

    A good overall view of Edinburg, more complète than just the réd line, which takes just over an hour. We definitely recommande the Grand Tour instead, if one has the time.

  • David Glass

    We did 2 of the bus tours, the City Sightseeing and the Regal Tour. Would highly recommend as an enjoyable and educational way to see historic Edinburgh. The City Sightseeing tour is approximately 1 hour start to finish and the Regal Tour is 1 hour and 20 minutes.
