What people are saying about Edinburgh

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

Excellent. Very informative, great comeraderie.

Truly enjoyed the day. Booked an eight hour walking tour focusing on the historical aspects of Scotland, starting out at the Edinburgh Castle, walking the Royal Mile and the Palace, with other highlights pointed out and discussed. Enjoyed a great lunch with our Guide, Doug, as well as a end of tour cocktail. Most enjoyable way of touring, flexible, personal and most of all, informative. Was like touring with a member of the family, who was very knowledgeable about Scotland, Edinburgh and all the activities we visited. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Well Done.

Private Customizable Edinburgh Tour With a Local Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/08/2019

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.

Edinburgh: Underground Vaults Tour Reviewed by THOMAS, 09/04/2019

Historically enlightening and so much fun!!!

Our guide Conner was absolutely amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed his company and were sad to end the day and have to say good-bye. The combination of his knowledge of facts/history and humour were delightful and added so much more to the experience then what we had expected for the day. I would recommend this tour and Conner as the host to everyone!
