Booking with Viator for the Mercat tour was a great idea. My wife and I enjoyed the educational tour that took us through the Royal Mile and into the castle. I appreciated the options to have the Viator pass for my iPhone. It was a little tricky calling Mercat Tours to confirm our appointment, but that worked out also. The staff at Mercat tours were friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful tour guide.

I loved Edinburgh and plan to go back. It was terrible weather when we toured but we made the most of it. The town is quite condensed, packed with people and lots of things to do. I would recommend a few days because it is so crowded that it makes sightseeing take longer than normal. Our guide was great and shared a lot of the Scottish history that I had not heard.
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.
Our tour guide Wendy was a wealth of knowledge and we really loved our walking tour so much information and history along the Royal Mile and then the Castle Edinburgh Castle is spectacular, would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was a lovely young lady who kept us entertained as well as informed. She provided much insight into Edinburgh's history, tales, and locations. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour which ended in Edinburgh Castle.
Awesome tour with Kim. Her wit and knowledge was exceptional.

Hannah was knowledgeable and made this tour interesting and fun.
great fun and energetic tour guide who kept the tour very interesting and fun. This tour company has quality guides and are very organized..
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.
This was fun and informative. Our guide was great, as I've found most of the tour guides in Edinburgh to be. She was a great story teller and made the experience a great time. I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to get acquainted with Edinburgh.
Great little tour. Helps you understand the Royal Mile a little better. Edinburgh Castle is spectacular. Could have spent a whole day just exploring that. I have forgotten our tour guides name but she was sweet woman and was very informative and friendly.
Guide was great. Edinburgh is one of the greatest cities in the world.

Totally amazing and very interesting too. I recommend going on this tour.
amazing tour, so full of information, Our guide Margaret, was really what made it so enjoyable, very knowledgable and tied all the stories together throughout the tour, strongly rec'md it, in fact a few of our other families we met up with in Glasgow, took train to do the tour for the day. A must do for any first time travellers to Edinburgh or history lovers.

It was brilliant. Very interesting, wonderfully informative, and the castle was fascinating.
Our Guide Charles was amazing! He told us so much about the history of Edinburgh and took us to some very nice courts and closes. Together we went into Edinburgh Castle and there he told us something about the castle and recommended in which order we could explore the remaining castle on our own.
I highly recommend this as a first tour when you arrive...it is a great overview of the city. Loved it.
Gillian was an absolute delight! The tour was interesting, informative and filled with smiles and local color. Thank you so very much for a delightful experience!
