Where To Find Us

Justin was our tour guide, he is very funny and looks great too. The tour just rattled along, he had a lot of stories, some funny and filthy but all interesting. He also had some recommendations for other things to do and places to see. Would highly recommend this tour and if we go back to Edinburgh one day, we'd go again.

We did the walking tour on an afternoon and loved every second. Justin was our tour guide and he was fantastic. We went around a number of key sites in Edinburgh, discussing them, the history of the city and some of the most notable names from Scottish past. The tour was very interesting and we got a lot out of it, discussing the tour and what we learnt for hours afterwards. A must do! Would encourage visitors to make this their first activity and you find out about where is the worth the money and good to see, and where maybe isn't so needed.

I stumbled across the sign, next tour was in 10 minutes, glad I stuck around for it! Justin was very informative and knowledgeable...and hilarious. It's a great introduction to Edinburgh, wish I had known about it when I first arrived and not on my last day, came across some places I would have loved to have visited or looked into further, next time
