What people are saying about Edinburgh

Interesting experience, improved our knowledge of Edinburgh’s past

I was booked on an underground vaults tour yesterday at 12noon, thinking that I had booked an individual tour for 4 people at a cost of £40 which I thought would be good for the children, only to find that this was not the case. I have checked back on how I booked to see how we were confused. I booked through Getyourguide. Their website says “Special Offer Underground Vaults Tour for 4 People Language: English Total price £40 Enjoy the underground vaults tour at a special price, available for groups of 4.” It does not say that it will still be part of the usual tour so I took this to be a separate tour and thought that it was good value because my original enquiry was for 2 concessions and 2 children which came to £40. I understand from other agents in the Edinburgh tour guide industry that this is not the first time that there has been confusion so I would ask you to ensure that your pricing is unambiguous throughout the various agencies that you use.

The best historical tour experience of any castle I have seen.

My tour guide was exceptional! He was very engaging and made sure our money was well spent. It only cost us £10 more to get the tour guide than a self-guided tour of a castle and it was the best £10 I have ever spent! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Edinburgh’s must-see castle and have a better understanding of its historical context. The stories told regarding everything in the castle were very entertaining, interesting, and mind-boggling. You must know the history of the castle to get the full experience and understand its architecture. Definitely worth it!

Great tour, even for mild Harry Potter fans!

My kids (11 and 14) are big Harry Potter fans. My husband and I, not so much. But we still found this tour very interesting and worthwhile. They weave in a bit of history and identify all the landmarks that inspired JK Rolling. We did this tour on our first day in the city and it gave us the lay of the land for the rest of our trip and the walk helped us muster through the jet lag. Our kids loved it and I have to admit it was very interesting to see how she developed the series from this inspirational city. Our tour guide did a great job. Highly recommended.

Great stories, fine whisky's, uncomfortable seeting. Still recommended

Our host John was waiting at the designated area long before announced time. He proved to be a great host, with really good storytelling skills, he is witty and humorous and has a clear knowledge of Scotch too. The venue was nice in itself, although the tiny/low benches with fixed low tables were not comfortable for anyone with long legs. I really loved the stories of ancient Edi and I had a great time listening to John telling them.

The tour was good. The walk to the castle wasn't.

Our guide, Jen, was great. Informative, funny, and seemed to be enjoying her work. I was less than happy with starting the walk to the castle so far away and at a pace that my wife and I had trouble keeping up with. According to the description of the tour, the walk was supposed to offer an opportunity for the guide to present background on the castle and the tour but it just turned out to be a speed walk to the castle.
