Very knowledgable guide who was flexible - necessary as we had to divert due to the Festival crowds.
The tour guide was marvelous on this tour although if you're expecting a "ghostly" experience this isn't r right tour. It's more of a history lesson. But still great and enjoyable.
This was a reallly enjoyable experience and I definitely recommend it. The guide, Lea, was obviously very knowledgable about the history of Edinburgh and she was very good at telling us the stories of what went on in the vaults as well as making us laugh. She did a great job at keeping us all together too through the busy streets so we didnt worry about getting lost in the throng. Definitely wear good shoes as it is a lot more uneven in places than I thought and expect to get dripped on. Highly recommended! A must see and do!
Excellent tour, especially if you're in to history like I am. Our guide was very knowledgeable and witty.
Very interesting and the tour guide was very entertaining and informative.
Roger is an excellent tour guide,without him it would have been a short and boring walk. His storytelling skill sells the whole walk.
A family of four with 10 and 8 year olds, we all loved the tour. Roger, our guide pitched it perfect for us and kept us all interested throughout with the creation and history of the vaults. The duration was exactly right at 75 mins - our youngest was just starting to lose concentration at that point, which is probably a record, excluding computer games! Definitely recommend it for anybody who enjoys their history.
Great tour, very interesting facts of the history of the vaults and fantastic guide. Would definitely recommend!
Brilliant tour, we all really enjoyed it (all 9 of us). Excellent value for money.
A very insightful view of the historic vaults and I highly recommend. I was uncertain if I should take the ghost tour in the same area, but both were very good. The nice thing about this vault tour is you could see in greater detail the actual area (as in night it is quite dark).The history is an important part as well.
We really enjoyed this tour, especially my nine year old. We learned so much about old Edinburgh and the guide was wonderful. This is an easy walking tour, low stress, and very informative. We have a whole new appreciation of Edinburgh that we never would have if we hadn't done this walking tour.
Really knowlegable tour guide who made the tour come to life!
The guide was highly knowledgeable, open to questions and very inspiring. I am very glad I booked this!!!
Interesting tour and gave a good history as to how Edinburgh came to be how it is today and how the city was formed.
It was fantastic! Our tour guide Lizzie was friendly and very informative with entertaining stories of the goings-on under the city. Everything was dimly lit for a spooky atmosphere, but not enough to make people feel unsafe. The stories really brought the eerie old tunnels to life. The guide's torch went out, so she couldn't point out details on the walls, but we were still able to carry on just fine.
Was a very informative tour and the guide (Linda) had lots of historic knowledge of Edinburgh.
Great tour! Alex the guide was interesting and amusing at the same time. Well worth a visit.
