Our tour guide Margaret was absolutely amazing! The Tour was deeply informative and made our visit to Edinburgh come alive with its rich history and secret gems. If you are travelling to Edinburgh, a Mercat historical walking tour is a MUST.

Excellent start to my week in Edinburgh - although the weather was rainy and cold, the tour guide made this trip fun and informative. We saw a lot of interesting sights in the tour and learned a lot that I would not have been able to learn on my own. The Castle was a highlight of the tour - don't miss! Her commentary was great, and added a nice perspective to the tour. I was able to go back the next day and revisit some of the sights again with a better understanding of the history. Highly recommend!
Sue was a great and enthousiastic guide. I totally enjoyed the tour and can only recommend it.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We learned so much about Edinburgh and we were so glad we took this tour . Getting admittance to the Castle was a great perk to taking this tour as well as having our guide be able to give us information not only in town but also in the castle. I would highly recommend this.
Really enjoyed the tour and stories. Lots of walking. Enjoyed seeing the castle. Would do again.
