This was such a thorough tour, and definitely worth it! It was awesome to walk around and see the historical structures and to hear all the stories behind it all. Alana was so great and didnt skip a beat. She was very kind and informative! Every question I had, she had an answer to. I learned so much more than if I were to have toured the city on my own. Great tour! Totally recommend!

a taste of Edinburgh

We reserved a few hours private tour, for me it's my husband. Ugne, the girl who guided us through the city, showed us corners in which we would not have arrived on our own, very kind and courteous in welcoming our requests, in responding deregulation to our curiosities about the capital of Scotland. The guided tour was the first activity done in our short stay in Edinburgh and it was very last for us to have some ideas to understand other views of the city visited in the following days. Thanks to the staff for the organization, upstream, and to Ugne who was very professional.
