Tours start at Edinburgh Bus Station, before winding their way through the best-known landmarks of the Scottish capital, including the historic Royal Mile, Princess Street and George IV Bridge. While enjoying the views and listening to a commentary from the staff, participants can feast on our excellent food from the Christmas menu.

Trip was good. Could do with someone on the bus giving a bit of information about where we were, and some history about Edinburgh. Afternoon tea wqas fabulous and staff were great.

I bought a voucher for elderly relatives. They were very well looked after and had an amazing time.

Fantastic experience. Lovely food and staff couldn't be more helpful. We went for my son's 16th birthday. He is autistic and loves burgers and buses so ideal. The staff were amazing - we sat at the front of the bus and they gave us cupcakes as a special treat for my son's birthday and the whole bus sang Happy Birthday. We did the gourmet burgers and they were delicious. Would definitely recommend and planning on an afternoon tea tour with the girls 😁 ☕️

I think the bus could be am amazing experience, but the generator wasn't working, so there were no lights for ambiance. I wants perturbed by that though. I do feel that ceramic mugs, a cloth or even pretend linen table cloth would have made a huge difference. The part that bothered me the most was that there was no guided tour. At no point did we know what tourist site we were lookin at. The chef was pure charm and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The lady who took our booking also went above and beyond to accommodate us. In all, not an entirely bad experience, just one that could do with a few touches to make it better...oh...and an actual tour or even a pamphlet to say where we were

Went on the xmas dinner trip was really good. Were running a few minuted late but we phoned up and they held the bus for us. Hadn't realised we would be stopping at Ocean Terminal as it wasn't mentioned in the sales pitch but that wasn't a problem. Would definitely recommend!

Generator was not working so no heating. No commentary of the sights. Rushed back early to drop people at station which was good for them but we missed out on part of trip.
