The name of the bus tour reflects the character of the itinerary. The Majestic bus tour takes in the three major Royal attractions in Edinburgh: Royal Yacht Britannia, Royal Botanical Gardens and Holyrood Palace, the Queen's official residence in Edinburgh.

Highlights of the City Sightseeing Edinburgh tour

The tour starts from Waverley Bridge and unlike other bus tours, avoids Princes Street, Edinburgh's main street. The Majestic bus tour takes you straight to the New Town via St. Andrew's Square, and then past the Water of Leith to the Botanical Gardens.

The Majestic Tour continues to Newhaven and then to Leith for the Royal Yacht Britannia. You can have lunch or do some shopping at the Ocean Terminal and then hop back on the bus.

The return leg of the Majestic Tour takes in Leith Walk, Holyrood Palace and the lower half of the Royal Mile before coming to an end in Edinburgh City Centre.
