Well worth the money. We chose to do both the city and the Britannia routes. We did the entire circuit first and then chose the sites we wanted to visit. If you have the time, I would recommend the 48 hour ticket, we ran out of time to visit all the places we would have liked to.

Loved the Edinburgh hop on bus! Great service and good working audio! Very informative! My advice is to skip the Paris hop on bus by get your guide!! Was awful! And super expensive. This one for Edinburgh was great!

Such an amazing experience, the actors were amazing and remained in character when things went wrong. I Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good scare and a laugh.

Great way to see the city and stop you from getting completely tried out too quickly

A fun and educational experience for the whole family. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
