Mary was our guide in this tour. We really enjoyed the histories about the other part of Edinburgh, which seems to be a quite superstitious city. The witches hunting, the diseases, the thefts of corpses. Very interesting tour to take the most of the late...More

Raj was our guide, the walk was a great mix of entertainment and informative. I learned a lot about Scottish history. Raj was a thoughtful and considerate host. Definitely recommend doing this tour in Edinburgh or anywhere it is offered.

We did the free walking tour with Eva and it was fantastic! She told great stories at each of the stops and kept up morale even though it was a gray, rainy day. Would highly recommend her tour to anyone!

We were excited to do this tour having only one night in Edinburgh but our family of four only lasted about 45 mins. The guide was nice but spent so much time telling us that the stories he was telling were probably not true anyway...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly

Hi Jasmine, Many thanks for your question! I'm afraid that the guides don't carry card machines, so if you do wish to leave them a tip, the best way to do so is in cash. If you need to know anything else, please don't... More
