Owner description: Looking for an entertaining way to find out about Edinburgh its history & traditions, then look no further. Yes a guide book can help you plan a tour of Edinburgh. They list the popular tourist attractions in Edinburgh but what they cannot do is give you the real stories and legends associated with places of interest and Edinburgh’s characters. This is where the Saints & Sinners tour guides come in, they bring Edinburgh Alive!! Our experienced tour guides are residents of Edinburgh this gives them unique inside knowledge, and they can also provide helpful tips, most importantly our tour guide can take you to great places in Edinburgh for that behind the scenes look that you would otherwise have missed out on. We can create customised itineraries to suit particular needs.

“Informative, informal and entertaining.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We were fortunate that Peter was a guide for only the two of us so there was never a problem with answering questions or understanding the discussion. Although we both have been to Edinburgh a number of times we went to places that we never knew existed. Peter's knowledge was far more detailed and deeper than the superficial knowledge of bus tour operators. Highly recommended.

“Knowledgeable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Our guide, Peter, was friendly and knowledgeable about Edinburgh. Having been at uni there, I knew a bit of the history, but he really knew his stuff and could answer any questions. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and you appreciate it even more after this tour. Recommend over a bus tour any day!

This was a great way to see the city and learn about the old and new towns. Brilliant guide with great local knowledge and a generational connection to Edinburgh. We loved it and would thoroughly recommend it to any visitor to this lovely city.

“Great start to our stay in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We came to this tour through the Fringe, proved to be a great way for us to orient ourselves in Edinburgh, both geographically and historically, we immensely enjoyed the walking and the stories as well as all of the tips on where to go.
