We decided to do this tour as a family on a Christmas break, and we’re lucky enough to get Stewart as our guide, he was very informative and interactive with the whole party. The tour is well worth it when in Edinburgh, highly recommended

This was such a fun activity to do! It exceeded my expectations, you get to try so many different chocolates from around the world and make your own with different ingredients! It was so much fun and would 100% do it again

Kieran was a great tour guide. He was a big Harry Potter fan himself so knew everything inside out. Would definitely recommend a trip with him while in Edinburgh. 10/10

Our guide was excellent! He was entertaining and very informative and I learned a lot about the history of the castle in Scotland in general

Monique was amazing! The tour was so interesting and she kept us engaged and gave so much cool information
