I bought a 48 hour ticket and was surprised to see the ticket is valid for the Edinburgh city tour bus, city sightseeing bus and one more bus. Usually it is my experience that the tour buses (HOHO) compete with each other. The only problem...More

Lesley was our guide and she was superb-full of information but more importantly her warmth and welcome to Edinburgh was superb-I could have listened to that accent all day. I would highly recommend a tour on a visit to Edinburgh.

Our tour guide, Ciara, had wonderfully colorful stories about Greyfriars Kirkyard. She was an engaging storyteller and did not shrink from the macabre (but it was more fact-based than a ghost tour!). We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to see...More

This was a most informative and interesting tour. I have lived in Edinburgh for many years but I learned so much in one and a half hours! The churchyard is steeped in history and even includes Greyfriars Bobby. Thanks to our tour guide Catoline

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
