What People Are Saying About Edinburgh
The quick trip down to Alnwick was great as we had lots of time to explore the castle grounds, gardens, and the tree house all on the same property. Exploring some of the living quarters of the castle was amazing to see how Dukes and Earls have lived throughout history. On top of the that you can see some spots that were used in movies like Harry Potter and Tv's Downtown Abbey.
We loved our tour with Mr. Usher! Fun and informative: he gave us a taste of the city, its beauty and its history. We loved it!
The walk through Edinburgh was very lively. As Mr. Usher was very knowledgeable we got to know a lot of E.'s history and stories lying behind. So we'd recommend the tour to other interested people, too. My wife and me were -beside our friends- the only guests that -sunny- morning. Having booked in advance was good and easy, so we had only to hand over the voucher.
Unfortunately I didn´t do the walk myself. I booked the tour for my parents who travelled through Scotland for a while. My correspondence with Stuart beforehand was very kind(?) so i had a good feeling. My parents confirmed that completely. They where very excited about the tour and Stuart, enjoyed it a lot and had a very good time.
We drove down to the castle from Edinburgh and had 3 hours in the castle. Paul, our guide, was right it was not enough time as there is so much to see. Missed out on the archery and the broomstick lessons but the castle rooms are magnificent. Only thing that would have made it better would be audio guides. Th drive back to Edinbugh was via the coast, which was really beautiful. Thanks Paul!
