One Edinburgh Hop-On, Hop-Off ticket is all you need to get the most out of your visit to Edinburgh by exploring the splendours of Scotland's capital city and experiencing its magnificent royal attractions.
The Royal Edinburgh Ticket is the only ticket that includes fast track entry to Edinburgh Castle, The Palace of Holyroodhouse and The Royal Yacht Britannia, and 48 hours unlimited travel on three bus routes – Majestic Tour, The Edinburgh Tour and City Sightseeing Tour, covering the length and breadth of the city. Plus, the cost of this ticket combo is 20% less than the total cost of tickets when brought separately.
The hop-on, hop-off tour allows you to easily make your way around the city. The routes are interchangeable, giving you even more flexibility. The buses in all the three routes have commentary, either through headphones or from a live guide.

I initially thought this was a lot of money. However, after going, it really was not! It was well worth it. Picking up our passes that we bought in advance was really easy and the guy gave us great suggestions at the ticket counter. The bus was clearly marked and the headsets were nice to listen to on the drive. We learned a lot of little tidbits about the city that we would not have learned otherwise. The busses came regularly and we didn't have any issues finding the locations to get back on. The admission tickets it came with were easy to use and helped us avoid lines which was really nice. This was my first hop on hop off experience and I am now hooked and will use them again for sure!
Beautiful yacht, great stories.
Good value for money and very goos attractions plus a simple way to get around Edinburgh
