What people are saying about Edinburgh Old Town

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!

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.

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.

Excellent tour and a lot of history to go along with it.

Jen was a great tour guide and had a lot of extra history that she shared and made the tour so interesting and fun. I would highly recommend this tour and you must request Jen Unleaded as your guide. She's knowledgeable and fun.

Good and knowledgeable, maybe too long a tour

Hsrd to hear the guide, groups quite large, some locations quite obscure jk rowling links !-the company is cramming in the tourists in large parties, making it less personable to hear,ask questions or interact.
