    Great information & stories. Totally worthwhile. Took a little under 2 hours. Ends relatively near the castle.

    Department of Magic is a great place to go if you want to have a little fun and be part of the wizarding world. I was able to go with a few friends and do the escape room and try the potion drinks. A must see and if you get paired up with Katie hosting your escape room and definite bonus - she made sure my friends had a fun time and was helpful when getting stuck on puzzles.

    This tour set up our ENTIRE month in Edinburgh! Sara was a super fun, knowledgable, and inclusive tour guide. She gave us a better history tour of Edinburgh than most other actually history tours and left us with excellent recommendations for beer and food for the rest of our stay. Would 10/10 recommend for anyone visiting, whether you're a beer lover or not!

    We were guided by Sawney Beane, he was los vely and it was a nice experience!
    The spanish tour was not avaliable at the moment, but he was easy to understand even if english is not your finest skill.
    It was just a few of us touring so the experience was pretty personal and unique. Very recommended! (Curse broken!!!)

    This pub crawl is a MUST-DO when in Edinburgh. My friend and I had an awesome time and enjoyed all of the free shots and discounted drinks. One of the best nights out ever!

    Great fun - if you are even considering going, GO! What a cool spot to have a cocktail . . . or three! The drink menu has something for all tastes, each served with its’ own cleaver twist, even the ice cubes are varied and unique! Our waiter, Cameron, made our evening that much more fun - he expertly explained every drink that we asked about, chatted with us just the right amount, and really added to our overall experience at Panda & Sons. This has definitely been our favorite bar since we have been in Edinburgh - such fun!

    We found this place just exploring down the little cute alleyways it's not far at all from the Royal Mile you will definitely find it if you like to venture everywhere. You done a few steps and tour inside this small but cute and Cozy feel pub with plenty to please all. The beers we had were great the staff were very welcoming and friendly. If you want a traditional Scottish feel Pub then this is the place you have to visit.

    This is so good. I order a Haggis and my wife order a Scottish Salmon and for dessert we order a Whiski Cranachan. Everything was perfect! It is recommended to make a reservation.

    Great wee pub on a quiet street in the city centre. Really friendly staff who were knowledgeable about the large selection of whiskey on sale. Good choice of beer too. Spotlessly clean with tables cleaned as soon as customers left. We were staying in Edinburgh for 4 nights and called in every day.

    Stopped here for a quick and cheap lunch. Both had a toastie and chips. Nothing posh, nothing fancy but plain and honest food. It was tasty and we were served quickly.

    Descend the stairs to a secret doorway behind which is an underground cocktail bar. This quirky bar offers some tempting cocktails. We stayed for a couple of cocktails - if you like whisky then try Cheers, but if you prefer the totally tropical taste of Lilt then Mystic Downfall is the one for you. Great theme, great venue and great drinks.
