Based on his book Horrible Histories:Edinburgh (Scholastic) Terry Deary has done the commentary for an open-toped bus which tours the city. In special livery, you can listen as Terry tells of the city's often lurid past - Burke and Hare the Body Snatchers, the site of the public gallows, murder and mayhem galore! Sure to be enjoyed by the over 8s! Catch the bus at the Waverly Bridge every 20 minutes ( most of the Lothian Region tour buses carry the commentary although there is only one specially decorated bus) Family tickets available - you can jump on and off the bus all day.

Please note the commentary is on Edinburgh Bus Tours - City Sightseeing Tour - the Edinburgh Tour, MacTour and Majestic Tour are live guided or on a different route.
