What an AMAZING & AWESOME tour of Edinburgh with the most wonderful guide (Sareena) We were a group of 2 and from the moment we set off, Sareena made us feel sooo welcome and comfortable. The weather was drizzly at times but that's Scottish weather for you. Sareena was very passionate and a carries a wealth of knowledge of the city. We would recommend this tour to whomever visits Edinburgh. 5*

The guide Serena was brilliant in explaining every detail in the tour. And thank her for going round at a steady pace so we could all keep up unlike some tours I've been on before it made a very enjoyable day out
