    Managed to fit a lot into two hours as these guys were very enthusiastic and not afraid of a lot of walking! Saw the castle esplanade, Greyfriars Kirkyard, Edinburgh University, Calton Hill and the Scottish Parliament along with a few Harry Potter locations along the way. Got some nicely insightful questions and had some good chats about Edinburgh's festivals, the relative ages of various cities and the Scottish Enlightenment.

    Very enjoyable couple of hours going around Calton Hill, the Royal Mile and Greyfriars Kirkyard. Lots of interesting chats about the Scottish Enlightenment, Edinburgh’s history of crime and punishment and the city’s Harry Potter connections.

    This was such a thorough tour, and definitely worth it! It was awesome to walk around and see the historical structures and to hear all the stories behind it all. Alana was so great and didnt skip a beat. She was very kind and informative! Every question I had, she had an answer to. I learned so much more than if I were to have toured the city on my own. Great tour! Totally recommend!
