We had a great tour with Gillian. She was very personable and knowledgeable. Gillian told us many humourus while educational history tales. I would definitely recommend this tour for visitors to Edinburgh.

David was well versed on the city's buildings, history and culture we couldn't have had a more excellent guide. The pace was good, the tour covered highlights of the Royal Mile, Greyfriar's kirkyard and ended at Grassmarket. The tour more than met our expectations.

Our guide, will, was excellent. He also called to check on our whereabouts right before the tour and we were having a hard time parking. He waited for us and was highly informative and funny. We had debated just doing the tour ourselves with guide book, but all agreed it was way better with good guide.

Rose, the young woman who gave us the history, walking tour was amazing. You need to give her a raise. Her knowledge was perfect, she was personable and we all voted to take her along with us thru Ireland. Thank you

Our tour guide, Emma was an angel!!! She waited in the cold rain for 45 minute for us to show up for the tour. Then she preceded to give us an in-depth and very fun tour despite the late hour and miserable weather. The service we received was exceptional!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

We recently experienced the 2.5 hour walking tour on March 4th with Will. It was a wonderful way to learn an overall idea of the town and he gave us so many ideas of places to go and restaurants to try. We enjoyed learning and seeing all of the interesting facts about the city of Edinburgh. We particularly enjoyed the tour of the graveyard and how many interesting characters were in the cemetery. I highly recommend this as a way to get an overall introduction to the wonderful city of Edinburgh.
