    Great way to see the city and learn about the popular attractions. Essential first day activity.

    I enjoyed the City Sightseeing Bus in Edinburgh. It was easy to purchase our tickets online but I did have trouble accessing a map to find a stop near where I was. The City Sightseeing Bus in London had an app you could use, and I think this would be a great tool to add for those touring In Edinburgh. I found the stops to be worthwhile, taking in all the key places and areas of the city, and the commentary was engaging and informative. I would definitely look to do other City Sightseeing tours in other cities I journey to.
