We enjoy hop on hop off tours when visiting cities. This one was alright but we did find it difficult to locate the first stop them found ourselves packed along the pavement with folk booked for our company and two other tours companies for 15 -20 minutes waiting for a bus. A bus next to our was cheaper but I don't know if it was a different experience. The lady driver was lovely and friendly, she drove well. We did one full lap to listen to the pre recorded guide information before alighting. We felt the stops were further apart than other city tours we have done but maybe they are restricted to certain areas. I feel for the person cleaning the bus as the floor at the front was disgusting were others that day had dropped litter and headphones. I suppose the cost is OK however we had a 24 hour ticket that we couldn't start until 3.40 when we arrived and the buses don't operate late. The following day we had tickets for the zoo and so didn't get value for money due to our timing.

Dull, overcrowded and impossible to see the sights!

Not for me! Myself and partner, 2 teenagers. We thought this might be a good way to explore Edinburgh. It was far too busy. Only a lucky few got seats in the open air, the rest of us “cooked” inside an airless bus which it was impossible to view the sights from as often you had to strain to see them- they were often out of sight for us, we were on the bottom deck. The commentary was dull and was advertised as ‘not a boring bus tour’, I beg to differ sorry guys. Not worth the money.

Hi Susan, Thank you for taking the time to feed back on our tour, and I'm very sorry to read that your experience was not positive. We're sorry to hear you couldn't get a seat on the top deck. Seats cannot be reserved, therefore we can't promise there will be seats available on the top deck. I'm also very disappointed to hear our tour was not interesting to you - we pride ourselves in our commentary, written by a true Edinburgh local and offering a light-hearted insight into all Scotland's Capital has to offer. We pride ourselves in offering customers a great experience on board our tours, offering an insight into all Edinburgh has to offer, and I am very sorry to hear that you did not have a positive experience on this occasion. Thank you, Scarlett Bright Bus Tours
