This tour is a great way to kick start your time in Edinburgh. Roxanna is very knowledgeable and you will certainly love all the history she shares.
Enjoyed our tour with Michaela. She made the tour memorable. Highly recommend this tour and great job Michaela.
We had an outstanding half day tour with Michaela. We had never been to Edinburgh before and wanted the chance to take in some local history and see some sights off of the beaten path. We met Michaela after our tour of Edinburgh Castle. We were impressed with her knowledge of the city. She let us take the lead with anything that we wanted to see and do during the afternoon. She was able to show us the best places for souvenirs and the best places for whiskey tasting. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon with an excellent guide. Thanks so much!!
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
