Got this experience as a delayed wedding gift and it was a great afternoon. It was good to have a tour of the city at the same time as having afternoon tea! The staff aboard the bus were amazing and created a great atmosphere. They had a good selection of food and drink and our server Emily was excellent at making sure we were looked after. All in all a really enjoyable experience.

This was an afternoon treat for my daughter and me. It was very nice but the bottomless prosecco wasn't available due to the lockdown in Edinburgh. Shame.

Great little experience

Had a lovely time on the red bus bistro. The afternoon tea was delicious and the staff were great. The only thing i think would have made it better is if it had been more of a guided tour. The girls shouted out a couple of places every so often as we passed but a bit more of an organised talk would have been better i think. Overall, really good though.

Fun way to tour Edinburgh

My work colleagues bought this for me and as my wife and I were visiting Edinburgh we decided to use our voucher. It was a fun way to see a bit of the city and the young lady serving us was very attentive. Nice selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes along with a couple of glasses of prosecco and cups of tea. Only an hour and a half so doesn't eat into your day too much. Great fun!
