Edinburgh Bus Tours welcomed children from Royal Mile Primary School to be the first visitors on their new city centre, family-themed Cobbles’ Tour.

The pupils had the chance to see some of the capital’s most iconic sights aboard one of Edinburgh Bus Tours’ new Cobbles buses, designed entirely in-house.

Officially launching on Sunday 3 April, the Cobbles’ Tour departs from the Lawnmarket and offers residents and visitors to the city an exciting new open top bus experience, just in time for the summer.

Onboard the modern, low emission zone compliant, fully-accessible vehicles, customers can listen to a pre-recorded commentary provided by one of Edinburgh Bus Tours’ own local expert guides, bringing Edinburgh’s landmarks to life with the help of Cobbles. Tickets are priced at £10 per adult and kids go free.

Gaynor Marshall, Communications Director for Lothian, said: “We were delighted to welcome children and teachers from Royal Mile Primary School to be the first visitors on our new Cobbles’ Tour.

“Cobbles has been an excellent addition to our team, and our new tour offering will provide plenty of fun and excitement for customers – young and old – with adult tickets from just £10 and kids go free!”
