About Rabbie's Hop-On Hop-Off City Tour:

See Edinburgh's iconic locations from the comfort of an open-top mini-coach. Operated by nationally famous tour provider Rabbie's, this new hop-on hop-off service lets visitors explore the Scottish capital at their own pace, but without the touristy feel of a double-decker bus.

It's conducted from the comfort of a spacious, 16-seater mini-coach. On-board features include a retractable, panoramic glass roof for all weather sightseeing, USB charging points, and geolocated audio guides. Commentary is currently available in English and headphones are provided upon boarding, though you can use your own earphones if you wish. Throughout, a professional Rabbie's driver will also regale passengers with fascinating local stories.

Tours run every 30 minutes from 09:30-17:00, and a full loop lasts approximately 50 minutes. The departure point is at the southern end of Waverley Bridge, close to Market Street. Each coach holds a maximum of 16 people, so you can be sure of a more intimate and fulfilling sightseeing experience.

Ticket Usage Instructions:

Simply select your desired date, print off your ticket (sent immediately via email), present it to the driver at any stop (see above) and enjoy the tour!

Rabbie's Edinburgh City Tour | What Will You See?

Assuming you begin Rabbie's City Tour at Waverley Bridge, your journey will start with a trip down Princess Street - past the luscious Princess Street Gardens and Scott Monument. Turning left up Lothian Road, you'll meet with a chance to hop-off and explore Edinburgh’s West End. Those who stick with the tour will circle around the back of Edinburgh Castle and emerge at the western end of the Grassmarket.

The Grassmarket is a historic square, once synonymous with cattle drives and public executions. Today it's a peaceful (if fairly busy) location packed with restaurants, cafes and small shops. Hop-off here if you'd like to grab a bite to eat or do a bit of souvenir shopping. Sticking with the Rabbie's coach takes you on a brief loop around Edinburgh’s university district, followed by a stop at the Lawnmarket.

Lawnmarket lies at the high western end of the Royal Mile. Disembark here if you'd like to visit the Castle or take a stroll down the capital's most famous street, otherwise, stick with the coach and descend back towards the city centre. The first stop as you proceed into Edinburgh's Georgian New Town is Charlotte Square. Charlotte Square is a green space surrounded by grand neoclassical buildings with an equestrian statue of Prince Albert at its centre. Hop-off here if you'd like to visit nearby Dean Village, St Mary's Cathedral or the Gallery of Modern Art.

Remaining aboard the mini-coach takes you to St Andrew Square - one Edinburgh's most recognisable gathering points. From here the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is only a short walk away, as is Multrees Walk, a designer brand shopping street. Next you'll travel east towards Arthur’s Seat, passing the Old Royal High School and Burns Monument as you go. The eventual stop on Horse Wynd places you beside the Scottish Parliament Building and Holyrood Palace.

The final leg of Rabbie's City Tour takes you up through Canongate, and right onto Jeffrey Street. Jeffrey Street is the last stop before the tour returns to its initial departure point at Waverley Bridge.
