There are a wide range of tours available in Edinburgh & The Lothians, and an Edinburgh bus tour is a great way to see the whole city. Edinburgh boasts a great variety of tours from city sightseeing buses to ghost walks, limousine rides and unique trike excursions. You can also venture further by minibus or coach to experience more of Scotland’s regions.

Edinburgh is a compact city meaning it is easy to see the sights on foot. Several organised walking tours provide a great insight into the history, culture and traditions of the capital. Stroll through the streets of Edinburgh with a knowledgeable guide, enjoy the opportunity to ask questions and meet fellow visitors along the way. Edinburgh boasts a rich history filled with stories of ghosts and ghouls and it is a great place to experience a mysterious underworld.

With several bus tours to choose from, there is no better way to travel between attractions than on an open-top sightseeing bus. Each is distinctive, providing a unique insight into the city, and with hop-on hop-off tickets valid for at least 24 hours you have the freedom to see the sights in your own time. Combination packages also make it easy for you to visit attractions such as the famous Edinburgh Castle in addition to using the buses.

Treat yourself to a trike tour of the city or enjoy a unique private tour to see Edinburgh & The Lothians from different perspectives. If you want to tour this region on the road, there are several companies offering a variety of options from chauffeur-driven limousines to trikes.

A visit to Scotland would not be complete without sampling a dram of the national drink and there is no better place to do this than a local distillery, such as the picturesque Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian with its fascinating exhibition. You can also enjoy a trip to the historic Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian.

Why not take some time out of your city break to experience more of Scotland? From the breathtaking scenery of the Highlands to the individual character found on each of the islands, you are sure to be captivated by the country’s magnificent regions. Whether you want to head north to see towering mountain peaks or you wish to journey south to the borderlands, a whole range of companies run tours starting from Edinburgh. You can book many of these at the VisitScotland Information Centre on Princes Street.
