Edinburgh has been the Capital of Scotland since the 15th Century and stands proudly on seven hills creating the dramatic skyline of this lively cosmopolitan city.

What better way to see this fantastic city than from the top of a City Sightseeing Tour Bus? Compare Edinburgh's Old Town, where families lived in cramped conditions and rubbish was thrown out of the windows to the elegant Georgian New Town with its three main streets and a square at either end. Hear about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above you and hear about the attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle. See the Royal Mile which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House. City Sightseeing will highlight all the things to do and see in Edinburgh as you tour through the city streets.

Why not combine your visit to Edinburgh City Sightseeing with other famous attractions and activities in Edinburgh such as Royal Yacht Britannia or Edinburgh Dungeon

Worth it, although i would choose not to stop at the castle on this, and stop at the castle on a different day, we spent half the day at the castle! But still worth it.
