What people are saying about Edinburgh

Interesting experience, improved our knowledge of Edinburgh’s past

I was booked on an underground vaults tour yesterday at 12noon, thinking that I had booked an individual tour for 4 people at a cost of £40 which I thought would be good for the children, only to find that this was not the case. I have checked back on how I booked to see how we were confused. I booked through Getyourguide. Their website says “Special Offer Underground Vaults Tour for 4 People Language: English Total price £40 Enjoy the underground vaults tour at a special price, available for groups of 4.” It does not say that it will still be part of the usual tour so I took this to be a separate tour and thought that it was good value because my original enquiry was for 2 concessions and 2 children which came to £40. I understand from other agents in the Edinburgh tour guide industry that this is not the first time that there has been confusion so I would ask you to ensure that your pricing is unambiguous throughout the various agencies that you use.

We loved our small group tour! Our guide, Kevin, was the best!

The trip was broken up by several stops so we were never sitting for long periods of time. The Kelpies were impressive. I could have spent a little longer there. Loch Lomond was beautiful and our guide, Kevin, entertaining and knowledgeable. My grandson really enjoyed talking to him and asked lots of questions! We had a delicious lunch at The Forth Inn. Then on to Stirling Castle. Thank you for one of our most enjoyable days in Scotland.

Sam was outstanding - I'll do it again sometime with other visitors

As I have said above, the tour was superb. However, I hope you won't mind me querying your pricing policy. I have no idea how your costings are compiled, but there were seven people booked for the Tour (Tue 25/6), one person did not appear, so revenue was either £180 (if someone cancelled) or £210 for one person to provide a two hour presentation on the move. Is that a reasonable price?

It was extremely interesting and great fun

I would highly recommend this tour, our guide was so friendly, introduced herself to every small group of people asking where they were from and if they were having a lovely holiday, which I thought was a lovely touch. Stephanie was a great story teller and made the whole tour fun and fascinating. We did the 8.30pm tour which added a little more atmosphere to it.

Overall our Scotland tour was excellent.

The sites we visited, Loch Ness and Glenco, were well worth the trip. But we spent the majority of our time on he bus. The bus driver, Paul, was a great driver but I grew very weary of his talking and story telling of Scottish wars and massacres. It’s was somewhat of a downer. But the sites were beautiful and the bus was comfortable.
