Easy to get on and off buses at frequent intervals but best place is st andrews square where lots of guides to answer your questions. A couple of the tours went past same things but thats only to get elsewhere. Loved the bus with the speaking guide on it made it much easier to see places of interest.

It was a great experience. If you wear hearing aids ask the driver for the different headphones. For people with hearing impairment it can sometimes be difficult to understand what was said. If they provided subtitles that would be amazing. Overall the drivers were very friendly and made the experience even better.

It's a easy but intense experience. You have a driver taking you to the most beautiful places and telling you a little bit of history, with fun, joy and love. There s a lot of cover in one day. It can be exhausting though. Be prepared. Be reasonably fit. Take pack food with you. There's no much time to queue and buy stuff if you need toilet trips and like me (being a woman, lot of queuing in front of female toilets)! Overall really worth it
