What people are saying about Edinburgh Old Town

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!

Educational, entertaining, full of heart & humor—thoroughly enjoyable!

Stephanie was fabulous. We learned that LittleFish tours is a young company that was started by friends and they are like family. What they have going works! Stephanie was passionate about her subject and delivered information with dramatic flare and humor that kept us engaged from beginning to end. I would recommend this tour to anyone and if walking is a problem, they can meet you at the castle so you can conserve your energy for the castle.

Edinburgh Castle: Skip-the-Line Guided Tour Reviewed by Caroline, 10/01/2019

Loved this your it was Jumpy, spooky, funny and informative

Amazing tour led by an amazing tour guide, Dr Knox. The tour was very creepy and Dr Knox made us jump and laugh a lot. It was also so interesting giving you information on Edinburgh’s history. We were on a girls weekend away and a few of the girls were nervous about going on a ghost walk but for all of us it turned out to be the highlight of the trip! Highly recommend. Would deffo do it again!!!

Hannah was very entertaining with the odd ghostly experience to boot!!

Hair being tugged when no one was behind you, a last long breath in your ear, heard by 2 of us, a ghostly cat rubbing against your shins and ghostly fingers stroking your hand and your jawline. All happened to us on our trip down the vaults. Hannah our guide was brilliant, very entertaining and informative. Our favourite tour in beautiful Edinburgh.

Lauren and Karis were brilliant tour guides and great fun

Brilliant tour, Lauren and Karis were great fun and really played their parts well. Can’t be helped, but the sounds of Minnie the moocher and Nina Simone did kill the eerie vibe in the vaults. But overall I would recommend this tour.
