“The staff on board the buses were VERY helpful and gave us great recommendations! The trips around Edinburgh were timely and smooth. The on-board audio information was amazing, and we learned a great deal. In addition, I left my phone on the bus and the Bright Bus personnel tracked it, found it, and shipped it back to me in the US. What a company! Top notch customer service.”
