    Jenn was fantastic!!! She clearly has a love and knowledge of Scottish history! This was Fringe month so getting to the castle was chaotic but she stopped several times to make sure we were all accounted for. In addition to being informative, she was funny. Beware, There is a lot of walking uphill and standing on this tour.

    Our tour guide, Richard, was fantastic: funny, friendly and a teller-of-tales and historical facts about the most celebrated, most besieged, and most fascinating castle in Scotland. You will come back entertained and informed. Don’t miss it (and ask for Richard).
    Nice addition to visiting the castle
    Julia_M, Aug 2022
    We really enjoyed hearing a little more about the history and some details about events that you wouldn't just read or hear in a general recorded tour or book.

    Cynthia_R, Jul 2022
    The guide was wonderful Very interesting and knowledgeable She pointed out things of interest and the not so interesting
    Great education about Edinburgh Castle
    Ari_N, Jul 2022
    We had an incredibly educational tour with Jule as our guide. I admittedly knew nothing about British/Scottish history and came away knowing a considerable amount through this tour. Learning about the sieges on the castle was fascinating. It was easy to find and follow the tour. We then were set up well to head out on our own to tour the rest of the castle buildings.
