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.

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.

A fun afternoon enjoying all sorts of illusions

Many thanks to Jamie for his excellent show at the Camera Obscura. My daughter and I enjoyed seeing and experiencing all the activities. Great value as our entrance fee allowed us to visit multiply times during the day.

Excellent guided tour. Very entertaining.

Fantastic glimpse into undercity life. Guide very knowledgeable and fun. Very entertaining would book tour again. Restaurant at end, let it down....lots of staff but know one wanting to serve. Stood there for ages.

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.
