Our tour guide Melanie, the canadian, was really fun! She was very passionate about it and told us some really cool stories with a humourus sense. It was very informative either way. I really like the tour, would definitely recommend!

Both guides (for the dark side tour and the free walking tour) were fun and nice. Keith and Maria gave us good tips about the city and told a lot of awesome stories about it. 10/10 totally worth it.

Despite the very cold weather, this tour was so much fun! And our guide (Australian David) was very good, he managed to intertwine true Edingburgh history and Harry Potter lore. It was interesting and funny from start to finish

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
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

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
