The double decker busses go all over the city. It was a great way to see a lot of things within a short amount of time. We learned the drivers really want you to be off of the bus lines between the 5-6 time frame...More

My daughter did this tour on 27.12.2018. Thoroughly enjoyed it; it was informative and entertaining. David, our guide, was great - knowledgable, witty and quirky. We loved the way he involved various members of the group. One of the highlights of our stay In Edinburgh.

Lesley was our guide and she was superb-full of information but more importantly her warmth and welcome to Edinburgh was superb-I could have listened to that accent all day. I would highly recommend a tour on a visit to Edinburgh.

Our tour guide, Ciara, had wonderfully colorful stories about Greyfriars Kirkyard. She was an engaging storyteller and did not shrink from the macabre (but it was more fact-based than a ghost tour!). We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to see...More
