One Edinburgh Hop-On, Hop-Off ticket is all you need to get the most out of your visit to Edinburgh by exploring the splendours of Scotland's capital city and experiencing its magnificent royal attractions.
The Royal Edinburgh Ticket is the only ticket that includes fast track entry to Edinburgh Castle, The Palace of Holyroodhouse and The Royal Yacht Britannia, and 48 hours unlimited travel on three bus routes – Majestic Tour, The Edinburgh Tour and City Sightseeing Tour, covering the length and breadth of the city. Plus, the cost of this ticket combo is 20% less than the total cost of tickets when brought separately.
The hop-on, hop-off tour allows you to easily make your way around the city. The routes are interchangeable, giving you even more flexibility. The buses in all the three routes have commentary, either through headphones or from a live guide.

A great bargain, and easy to have all the tickets in one. Didn't have to worry about getting tickets at each attraction.
We had wonderful service in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. One of our days in Edinburgh saw a very strong windstorm blow through and some of the "draws" were closed for safety reasons (ie Edinburgh Castle). The "Hop On / Hop Off" staff were very vigilante telling everyone what was open and what was closed. This advance notice enabled all visitors to plan their day accordingly. We appreciated the advance warnings and acted on the information. Thanks for the support!
Overall great way to see all of Edinburgh and not have to stand in line for tickets as they are included.
