Our tour guide was named Ryan and he did a fantastic job! He went above and beyond sharing the stories behind the history of the castle and the city of Edinburgh. Amazing time learning the history then you were set free to continue looking around the castle for as long as you wished.

Ben was a great tour guide! He was funny and informative, we learned a lot of cool things and had a great time. Would recommend!

It was a great experience. Richard, our guide, was very knowledgable and fun. We had a good time despite the rain.

Fantastic and engaging tour with our guide Steph. Both factual and informative and entertaining

Great castle tour, with a terrific guide who knew her stuff!
