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.

Easy to use and no waiting in line to access attractions.

Hop on, hop off buses were very convenient, came frequently and had friendly, helpful bus drivers. Really enjoyed the Royal Botanical Garden and the Britannica. We would probably not gotten to these sites were it not for the bus. It was convenient to not have to wait in line for tickets, vouchers all accepted easily. Also saved some money on other attractions when showing your voucher stub.

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.

Good adventure not only for real Harry Potter fans.

A very involved guide, you can see that it is his passion. He tells interestingly guided around various interesting places. Quiz difficult but interesting. A must for those who want to know the curiosities and facts from the world of the wizard from Hogwarts.

Informative and entertaining tour of Edinburgh Castle

My family went on a tour with Alasdaire from Little Fish on the 8th of June. It was a very well organised, educational and entertaining experience. We really enjoyed the activity.
