What people are saying about Edinburgh

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!

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.

Great Tour - very interesting - friendly Guide

The Tour was very interesting and well organised, our Guide Muriel knew the theme and was very friendly, the Quiz was fun with good chosen questions, i only was sorry that you could Not choose the house you wanted but took a Card, what was also fine. Muriel also gave us some more tips for stores to visit etc. so the Tour was entirely really great.

If you enjoyed the HP books, you have to do this tour

Loved this walking tour. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and it was really interesting to see where J.K. Rowling drew her inspirations from characters, names, locations, and also where she was working on the books at the time. Highly recommend this tour to any partial or huge Harry Potter fans.

Entertaining and interesting tour with Eddie

Met on time, reasonably small group, Eddie demonstrated good levels of knowledge about Harry Potter and Edinburgh in general. Eddie involved all group members as much as they wanted to be involved, and made this a very enjoyable experience at a good price. Highly recommended.
