What people are saying about Edinburgh

Full of interest, well organised and great for families.

We went here with our sons aged 16, 13, 11, and everyone really enjoyed this tour under the streets of Edinburgh. The guide was fun and enthusiastic and painted a vivid picture of life in ancient Edinburgh, warts and all! For me the highlight was the actual Mary King’s Close itself which was well enough preserved to be able to imagine it as one of Edinburgh’s main streets with bustling market and busy homes and businesses. The tour lasted about an hour and wasn’t cheap, but the guide was great and there was lots to see and learn so I would certainly recommend this tour to others.

Was very good value for money and a great trip.

Really enjoyed our trip. As well as seeing the three great bridges from a different perspective we got to see Puffins and Seals as an extra treat. Had the option, for an extra fee, to disembark halfway to go on the island and afterwards regretted not doing that but was a great experience anyways. Would recommend this trip with interesting commentary all the way.

Step back in time and be shocked by this glimpse into history.

One of the highlights of 5 days in Edinburgh. Stepping into Mary King’s world was interesting and educational. Until this tour, I used to think how amazing it would be to go back in time and see what life was like. This tour cures that desire through vivid descriptions of what you would really be stepping into if you lived in Edinburgh 300-400 years ago.

An enlightening sail on the Firth of Forth

I took friends on this mini cruise on The Firth of Forth. Not knowing what to expect we were blown away by the scenery and the weather was so kind to us all that it added to our overall enjoyment. The commentary was extremely helpful and seeing the marine life was icing on the cake. A great trip at a very affordable ticket price.

Very interesting, especially for those who enjoy history

It gave a real view of how and where people lived. Thankfully we were spared the smells and sounds though! It really gave you an insight into what life was like and what people endured.
