Autism Friendly Tours

Join us onboard our 1966 Routemaster Double Decker for our Autism Friendly Tours. You will board the bus at Stance ZF, Waterloo Place (a few minutes walk from Waverley Station) where we will embark on a tour around the main tourist attractions that Edinburgh has to offer. The tour will last approx 90 minutes. We have comfort breaks filtered into the tour, however we can stop as and when needed. This tour can accommodate up to 28 passengers (upstairs) which allows for our downstairs area to be used as our quiet / chillout area for our guests if required.  Our Red Bus Bistro Crew have taken part in an autism awareness session and therefore have a good understanding of the condition and the Crew will do what they can to make our guests comfortable.

The prices for this experience are based on the Tour only (i.e. no Afternoon Tea) if you do wish to have an Afternoon Tea, we ask that you make a donation towards National Autistic Society  – this is at your discretion.
