I have been to Edinburgh before, and this is the best tour yet! Raphael took me to places I had not seen before and taught me new things about Scottish history. I especially liked his stories about local authors. He also was so sweet with sending us a list afterwards for extra places to visit, eat and drink. He’s not your typical tour guide in that he makes the city come alive. Thank you for the fun day!

Rafael made the tour interesting, fun and accommodated to what we wanted as a family!
Rafael was absolutely great! I live in Edinburgh and my family came to visit and I was very pleased on everything he told us, even I learned a lot! Not only the tour was informative and interesting but he made it fun and tailored it to what we wanted as a family, he is very friendly and joyful.

Fun and informative walking tour of Edinburgh
I had a great time exploring Edinburgh with my private guide Rafael. Rafael was great in replying to my messages about meeting point and itinerary before the tour, and we had no troubles meeting on the day.
We walked around Edinburgh for over 3 hours, exploring the old town and all the important sights. Rafael was very personable and fun to chat to, and was able to tailor the experience to what I wanted to see. He was able to mix both historical information with entertaining stories, so it was never boring and gave me a good overview of the city.
Overall I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
