Explore and discover the fantastic city of Edinburgh with ease

If you’re planning a trip to Edinburgh with the family or some friends and you're set on seeing and learning as much as you possibly can, you need to hop on to this bus.

You’ll be taken to a number of amazing tourist attractions across Edinburgh soaking up all the knowledge as you go.

If you're anything like us, you'll be jotting down all the facts from the on-board commentary and snapping photos and videos every step of the journey!

Some great places you'll be taken to include Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Palace of Holyrood and so many more.  

‘Hop-On and Hop-Off’ - how it works

One of the great things about these tours is the option to ‘hop-on or hop-off’ at any stop you like; this really gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace and return to the tour at whatever stop is on their route later on.

Bright Bus Tours operate two routes:

Edinburgh City Tour - offers a delicious taste of Scotland's capital

Britannia Tour - discover the attractions and sights fit for royalty, plus soak up the culture like a local in some of Edinburgh's most trendy areas

There are two ticket options for each tour: 24 hours or 48 hours. This lets you freely ‘hop-on and hop-off’ whenever you like for as long as those tickets are valid, so really there’s no rush, take your time and enjoy the sights!

I want to see it all - can I do both tours?

If you’re someone who wants to see it all then don’t worry because Bright Bus Tours also has an option for you. They offer a two-tour package so you can experience it all and it works just the same as the two tours above, so explore at your own pace and get back on at the next stop when you’re ready.


What to know before coming:

  • The Bright Bus Tours buses are exactly what they say on the tin - they are bright orange. Which makes it easy to know what ones you can catch. Plus, every bus stop you can 'hop-on and hop-off' will have their logo. Easy peasy!
  • The tours operate 7 days a week from 9am and both starting points are at St. Andrew Square
  • You get free headphones to keep but you can also bring your own for the on-board commentary if you wish
