MIchael was terrific!!! He gave us a wonderful tour of Old Edinburgh, filled with enough history and charming stories. He did a great job getting us from one place to another with the crowds of the Fringe around us. Very enjoyable.
Sue was an excellent guide. She managed to get herself heard despite the festive atmosphere around. Enjoyed it very much.
Wendy was an excellent tour guide, showing her passion for Edinburgh. She knew how to keep the group listening to her many stories and history of this great town. I learnt a lot, especially the meanings behind many of our words and phrases - 'the loo' related to people in the olden days calling out above when they were to empty their 'slops' from above, 'daylight robbery' with the window tax implemented etc. Wendy was well prepared and carried a folder of photos and illustrations to support her stories and knowledge. Well worth the money.
The tour was great, Margaret did a wonderful job and her knowledge was exceptional. We were there on Sunday when Edinburgh was celebrating the Fringe. The streets were jam packed and Margaret knew her way around the crowds.
Margaret, the tour guide, was excellent.
She made the area covered come to life in a very unique way.
I would highly recommend this tour.
The cost was quite reasonable too.
Excellent and very informative tour. Our guide, Margaret was extremely knowledgable and kept us entertained throughout the tour.
The weather in Scotland can be changeable and this tour had it all. It started out raining then the sun came out then more rain and hail even but not 1 person left the tour. Our guide was so entertaining and he knew so much about the history of Edinburgh.
Very very interesting and well presented . Our guide Margaret was very informative, helpful and friendly and made it a lovely tour.
It was great! We only had two days in Edinburgh, so I'm glad we did this tour. It gave a quick history of Edinburgh and pointed out things we would've missed if we were on our own. I highly recommend it! We didn't add the Castle Tour, but I would. We ended up doing the Castle separately, but it would have been nice to have a guide there as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was interesting to find out things that are not commonly know about the Royal Mile. Although after several days of visiting Edinburgh my feet were aching nothing to do with this tour by-the-way. It is worth every penny!
a professional tour guide with extreme knowledge about the city and its secret, very nice tour, and very knowledgable tour guide
a great tour and tour guide, although we where late to the tour the guide did every thing to accomodate our needs and complete the tour for us highly recomended
Steven our guide made history come to life. He was entertaining, and very informative. Edinburgh has so many historical stories it was really worth doing - cant recommend this highly enough
Loved it the guide was excellent she was witty and smart and very helpful! We added the castle tour a must see!
It was pouring with rain the whole way through our tour but we barely noticed as the guide kept us so interested and entertained. He was very knowlegeable and entertainig and the history of Edinburgh is very interesting. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Wonderful tour! We got to see so much of the local flavor. Rather than fighting the crowds of "The Fringe Festival", our guide took us into quieter places, gave us the historical background, then took us back to the Royal Mile where we were able to see the places he had told us about.
Excellent and well worth it! More in-depth history of the royal mile, along with going behind the scenes to the court building, down some of the closes, good information on history of the area.
I thought this was an interesting tour, showing little alleys and buildings that I would otherwise not know were there. The guide was very informative and answered all our questions.
Very informative guide and interesting information given. The tour goes at a comfortable pace for all the up hill walking involved. It covers only a portion of the Royal Mile.
We went on this tour during our first day in Edinburgh and it was such a great introduction to the Royal Mile. Our tour guide was really great and informative. He took us into the old Parliament building, which was definitely a highlight. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Brilliant!!! Great value, and our guide was most informative. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you.
