City Sightseeing Edinburgh

City Breaks

What better way to see Edinburgh than from the top of a City Sightseeing Tour Bus.


Capital of Scotland since the 15th Century, Edinburgh stands on seven hills creating the dramatic skyline of this lively cosmopolitan city. Compare Edinburgh's Old Town, where families lived in cramped conditions and rubbish was thrown out of the windows to the elegant Georgian New Town with its three main streets and a square at either end. Hear about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above you and hear about the attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle. See the Royal Mile which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House.

Use the 24 hour ticket to hop on and off the tour as you please and really explore all Edinburgh has to offer. With great visitor attractions, museums, galleries and restaurants to suit every taste (and budget) Edinburgh's got it all! See the fantastic Scottish Parliament building as well as Dynamic Earth as we take you through Holyrood Park - the Queens Park with Arthur's Seat the extinct volcano at its centre. Have your cameras ready for this fantastic tour through this beautiful City.

Our Horrible Histories Children's Tour offers our younger passengers the chance to hear about all the gory bits from Edinburgh's turbulent past. Researched and recorded by Horrible Histories author Terry Deary this is a brilliant addition to the City Sightseeing experience ensuring that the whole family are informed and entertained.
