  • Tour guide was well informed, but the 2hr duration felt too long for the amount of content.

  • We didntlike it at all. It was a waste of time and money.

  • We did this tour on our first day in Edinburgh and it was a great way to get acclimated to the lay-out of the city. We were introduced to places that we would have had a hard time finding on our own and it was an enjoyable experience!

  • Only disappointment was not being taken to the Elephant House Cafe, tour guide talked about it but never took us there. we found the place on our own.
