Really enjoyed running through Edinburgh. Tour guide was fantastic, fun, and energetic and so knowledgeable!

Absolutely amazing run tour of Edinburgh! I will be booking again for sure when I return, hopefully sooner rather than later. Our route took us from Holyrood Palace through the Royal Terrace area, up Calton Hill at sunset, no less!, through New Town, by Princes Street Gardens, the Castle, through Old Town, and more. It was wonderful, and my guide, Raymond, was super friendly and knowledgeable about the city and its history. I had a wonderful experience and would recommend to anyone who enjoys running, history, and sightseeing all in one. Couldn't have asked for anything better!

We had a great guide. We enjoyed the historical stories and the exposure of the city. I used the knowledge of the route to run the remaining days of my visit there. I think anyone who enjoys some activity to sign up for this tour.

We ran about 6 miles at a leisurely pace but we learned so much about the history and our guide was highly educated on the topics.
I used the exposure of the route to run on the other days of my visit.

This was one of the best experiences of our trip. The pace of the run was comfortable and I think any level of fitness would enjoy it. We learned some truly interesting facts about the city and running by them made it special. I hope this tour remains in Edinburgh because we would love to do it again when we return. It was a great value for the price.
