Follow the route map along as you go & do the route twice. That way you will know exactly where to get off & where to get back on a different pick up spot, if that's what you decide.

A bit confusing knowing what bus to get on but once your on its smooth sailing. Can’t hear at all in the earphones but the views are top tier

We tried this possibility as the first thing of our stay in Edinburgh. A perfect way to get a sence of the city when it is your first visit.

Very good value for money. The best way to see and learn about the city.

It’s great going around Edinburg on these buses. It’s cheap and fun!
