Great quick tour of Edinburgh castle! Ben was very good and entertained our group with great historical facts and funny anecdotes.My only note: if you're not fully fluent (i.e. proficient) in English, then book a tour with a guide speaking your language. Ben speaks quite fast with a lovely Scottish accent so if you're not used to that, you may feel at loss.
