I have been on Sandemans tours all over Europe and they have all been great but the walking tour today in Edinburgh was the best one I have ever been on. Paulina has the perfect balance of history and comedy that every walking tour needs. Like the title says, Paulina was great and I can not recommend this tour enough.

I've visited a lot of cities and I've met some guides but the experience I had in Edinburgh was one of the best! Enthusiasm, precision, knowledge, a song of ice and fire.. I recommend this free tour to everybody!

It's a really great thing to do. You see all the main sights and also here some stories to them, so you get a little background to everything you see and to the (beuatiful) city and scotland itself! And I really liked the idea of paying in the end whatever the tour was worth for you, so you won't get... More

Digesting Scotland's history has never been that fun and interesting, thanks to Jonny's colorful and playful storytelling. I've been to a lot of walking tours, but he is definitely the best tour guide for me. He will make you love Edinburgh. I want to go back to try the dark side tour next time!

Was enthralled by an excellent historic insight into the City of Edinburgh! From spitting into the heart of the city to the origins of Harry Potter, the tour encompassed many amusing facts and stories; such as the rise of Maggie from a recent hanging or the snatchings and selling of the recently deceased!!! Cheers Jonny! Great Tour!!!!

Paula gave us an excellent insight into the history, architecture and traditions of Edinburgh. Paula had a well rehearsed tour that proved to be amusing and very interesting despite the changeable weather throughout. I give 5 stars because this was an excellent 2.5 hour tour but if I had to be constructively critical I think a couple of things could... More

Jonny was a fantastic tour guide and was full of interesting information presented in an interesting way. The only thing that would be nice is smaller tour groups seeing more of the main attractions.
