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)!

The best way to start your visit at a spesific destination!

We bought a 48-hour Hop-on-hop-off Bus-pass and took full advantage of all the routes (red, green & blue). After doing the Red-route first, you can decide what you want to do/see and when. This is so easy! Information via audio-phone and/or live commentary, is excellent and we learnt so much! This Pass even included entrance-tickets to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace as well as the Royal Yacht Brittania in Leith Harbour, just wonderfull! Don't hesitate, just do it!

A great way to learn the history and experience the sights of Edinbur.

Very informative tours of all the sights of Edinburgh. My third trip using this service and it has improved so much. An excellent service for anyone with walking difficulties as the hilly terrain could be taxing. Enjoyed it immensely but would have liked more than 24 hours to see the sights. We were stuck in traffic due to the Royal Garden Party so missed seeing the gallery. We would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to other visitors.

Easy to use and no waiting in line to access attractions.

Hop on, hop off buses were very convenient, came frequently and had friendly, helpful bus drivers. Really enjoyed the Royal Botanical Garden and the Britannica. We would probably not gotten to these sites were it not for the bus. It was convenient to not have to wait in line for tickets, vouchers all accepted easily. Also saved some money on other attractions when showing your voucher stub.

It was extremely interesting and great fun

I would highly recommend this tour, our guide was so friendly, introduced herself to every small group of people asking where they were from and if they were having a lovely holiday, which I thought was a lovely touch. Stephanie was a great story teller and made the whole tour fun and fascinating. We did the 8.30pm tour which added a little more atmosphere to it.
