Let us highlight all the things to do and see in Edinburgh as you tour through the city streets. Compare Edinburgh's Old Town. Learn about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket and see the Royal Mile which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House.

Description

Edinburgh has been the capital of Scotland since the 15th century and stands proudly on seven hills creating the dramatic skyline of this lively cosmopolitan city. What better way to see this fantastic city than from an open top bus?

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. Learn 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.

We will highlight all the things to do and see in Edinburgh as you tour through the city streets.

What a great overview of the city!! We hit great weather and enjoyed the upper deck and the narrative explanation of the history of the city. This gave us the knowledge we needed to go back to the spots that we wanted to explore in more detail. Great Job!@!

It was very expensive for what it was. Wish we’d just walked it instead!
