Excellent tour. Sarah our guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, and very professional. Took time to answer questions and explain nuances of the “Castle”. Led tour at the right pace — didn’t feel rushed. (If you plan to take tour, get in Sarah’s group).

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
