My friend who has been to Edinburgh a few times and I booked this tour as a last minute addition to our weekend in Edinburgh, purchasing through the app was easy enough however trying to locate the starting point was very difficult. We asked several locals, google map's and eventually took a taxi and sadly not even the taxi could find it. We went into a bar close by to ask for more directions and came upon a very helpful man who knew the tour guide and proceeded to call them advising we were on our way down. He took us to the corner of the next street where our tour was supposedly waiting but again no sign. After this we sadly gave up. I'm sure the tour itself would have been brilliant if you were lucky enough to find the starting place.
