An excellent and a must see place for anyone who is visiting Scotland.

I liked the one oclock artillery gun fire. It was a great treat to see how land was ruled and controlled by the rulers in the old days. Wars were fought for land, money and women. The dress codes and the weapons used during wars were astonishing. Justice and fairness were never the number one goal may it be in the past or in the present. Achievements were always measured with wealth that got acquired at the end of wars. It is also great to see how records were kept in those days and how those records were safe guarded against enemies. Hats off to those Who had the foresight and the determination to safe guard all those remaining wealth. Thank you once again. Rajah

Very informative tour and guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Would recommend this tour for people visiting Edinburgh to give them a feel of the city in the Early years of it's existence and how hard it was for the early settlers who came to find work in this city and through no fault of their own could fall on hard times and ultimately put their own Iives and family at risk by just being here and not finding work, harsh penalties were dealt out to those who took to crime, or simply were homeless.

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.

Spooky even during the day, but fun activity

We weren’t able to book the evening tour because it interfered with another walking tour we had scheduled that day, so we went during the day. It was still very scary! Once you’re in there, you lose the sense of time. We were spooked but we really enjoyed the experience

Excellent. Staff extremely helpful and friendly.

Worth every penny. Especially Royal Yacht Britannia and Hollyrood House. Bus very easy to catch. Automated tour guide very informative. Would highly recommend. We had the 48 hour pass and 3 attractions which was excellent value for money.
