What people are saying about Edinburgh

Amazing walking tour with enthusiastic guide

Since we were but with 4 in total, Simon - our tour guide - had oceans of time to stop and explain every bit of mystery and history surrounding the Royal Mile. We wandered around town, strolling into hidden closes and discovering curious nooks, at a relaxed pace. The guide was able to provide us with plenty information and facts about the Mile and the city of Edinburgh itself, that you immediately feel like you'd lived there yourself for some time. Pity that he had to leave us at the Palace (since no guides are allowed inside), but even there he set us on our way with the audio-guides. In all a great experience, and would definitely recommend this organisation (and this tour)!

Tour guide was great! Attractions better suited for the fully-abled.

Niel was wonderful. I found Alnwick very cheesy and hype-centered; I wish I'd done the gardens instead of the castle. As a mildly disabled person, I found parts of this tour too lengthy to complete within the time given, and I did not attempt the lengthy walks to/around the castles either on the Holy Island or the last castle of the day. I took my photos from a distance. Alnwick also involved a large amount of walking.

Stunning countryside and magnificent castle

We drove down to the castle from Edinburgh and had 3 hours in the castle. Paul, our guide, was right it was not enough time as there is so much to see. Missed out on the archery and the broomstick lessons but the castle rooms are magnificent. Only thing that would have made it better would be audio guides. Th drive back to Edinbugh was via the coast, which was really beautiful. Thanks Paul!

A living castle and a tidal island all in a days time.

The quick trip down to Alnwick was great as we had lots of time to explore the castle grounds, gardens, and the tree house all on the same property. Exploring some of the living quarters of the castle was amazing to see how Dukes and Earls have lived throughout history. On top of the that you can see some spots that were used in movies like Harry Potter and Tv's Downtown Abbey.

Charming tour that we highly recommend, especially Harry Potter fans!

We went on a larger tour the day before and much prefer this tour. Large van, great driver, Allan, learned history, saw historical sites, and kids loved Alnwick! They had broom flying lessons and more:).
