If you are on a cruise you will have to take a city bus into town to get on the bus. Right outside the port, across the street and takes about 20 minutes. If you buy the pass with the 3 tours you can take the blue tour back to the ship as it stops at the port.

It was a fun fulfilling day trip despite the long drive but our tour guide Tanya made it fun and entertaining. Wish we could have stopped at more places to take quick pictures but other than that it was a fun trip!!! Thank you for a great experience!

The hop on hop off 3 bus city tour is the best way to see and learn about the history of Edinburgh. I would highly recommend on any visit to this beautiful city.
