What people are saying about Edinburgh

A spectacularly spine chilling and informative walking tour.

This was an eye opener! Our tour guide was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. He had a red beard and pony tail. I should have remembered his name but it’s not my strongest character trait. We walked through cemeteries and learned about some of the very unsavory practices that went on years ago. We Also learned the origins of many sayings... such as ‘A stiff drink’ and the ‘The Graveyard Shift’. We then walked uphill to a magnificent view of the city and learned about the persecution of many ‘accused’ witches. I would not have faired well having both red hair and a large birthmark on my back. A very scary thought indeed. We then saw some unfinished architecture (which I preferred that way). Our tour guide was FANTASTIC! It was a throwback of yesteryear in the Old Town of Edinburgh. I highly recommend this tour..,, just wear your walking shoes!

Excellent. Very informative, great comeraderie.

Truly enjoyed the day. Booked an eight hour walking tour focusing on the historical aspects of Scotland, starting out at the Edinburgh Castle, walking the Royal Mile and the Palace, with other highlights pointed out and discussed. Enjoyed a great lunch with our Guide, Doug, as well as a end of tour cocktail. Most enjoyable way of touring, flexible, personal and most of all, informative. Was like touring with a member of the family, who was very knowledgeable about Scotland, Edinburgh and all the activities we visited. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Well Done.

Private Customizable Edinburgh Tour With a Local Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/08/2019

Historically enlightening and so much fun!!!

Our guide Conner was absolutely amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed his company and were sad to end the day and have to say good-bye. The combination of his knowledge of facts/history and humour were delightful and added so much more to the experience then what we had expected for the day. I would recommend this tour and Conner as the host to everyone!

If you enjoyed the HP books, you have to do this tour

Loved this walking tour. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and it was really interesting to see where J.K. Rowling drew her inspirations from characters, names, locations, and also where she was working on the books at the time. Highly recommend this tour to any partial or huge Harry Potter fans.

Informative but more communication required.

Loved the tour however would like to have been informed that payment required for entry to some castles and not included in the price. Also cash only for one castle, just good luck we had the cash on us. Otherwise great day out.
