The duration of the whole trip is 1:15 mins, which is great, and the descriptions are not timed properly for the landmarks you are looking at, so it was very confusing at times not knowing what you are looking at and listening to. Otherwise, it was ok overall.

There are plenty of these buses and they pass all the obvious places of interest. The stops are quite far apart and the circuit is one-way, so it’s better for staying on for the entire tour than using as a hop-on, hop-off service. During the Festival and Fringe in August, the route changes (because parts of the Royal Mile are impassable). This wasn’t marked on the leaflet with route map, which made it hard to know where the temporary stops were.
