We do not offer live or recorded guide commentary on our buses. We are a dining experience whilst touring Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Tickets are only valid for the date and time stated on the booking confirmation.
Passengers with mobility concerns should contact us immediately after booking to ensure a suitable downstairs table is reserved for them. Should there be no availability for the date/time chosen, a suitable alternative will be offered.
Unfortunately due to the age and design of the Bus we cannot accommodate wheelchair passengers. We have a small storage area to store a fully collapsible wheelchair, if the passenger can transfer to a seat downstairs.
There is no toilet on board, however all tours will include a comfort break.
Passengers should expect to share a table, especially on our busier weekend tours. If passengers would rather not share a table, we can try and accommodate them on a quieter tour.
All seating plans are allocated by our bus managers and are subject to change right up until the departure time.
To guarantee exclusive use of a table for four, a supplement of £10 per unused seat would be charged. Please contact us to arrange this reservation.
To select a specific seat on the bus, there is a charge of £4 per person. Please contact us to arrange this reservation.
To guarantee the use of the upper-deck front tables, there is a charge of £6 per person. These seat just two people and there are only two available. Please contact us to arrange this reservation.
Passengers are requested to arrive ten minutes before departure from your indicated pick-up point. Unfortunately, we cannot wait for late comers as we run a strict timetable.
Refunds will not be offered to latecomers.
We offer gluten free, dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian options. These should have been requested at the time of booking, but please contact us immediately if this was overlooked.
As food served on board is prepared in a small kitchen, we cannot guarantee the absence of nuts in any of our tours.
If you have any other specific dietary requirement, please contact us immediately so we can accommodate you.
Smoking is not permitted on the Bus at any time.
