Really fun free tour of Edinburgh with James, who struck the right balance between being informative and entertaining. Lots of interesting anecdotes about the city and locations that we otherwise wouldn't have known about. Thank you!

Edinburgh free tour was a bit less than I expected. The guide was knowledgeable, but I found that the "jokes" we're a bit too much. Yes it's a free tour, but a tour with more info would have been better. We did take the Castle...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its

place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
