Was roped into a tour by the guide Angus but ended up going with Australian Dave or David. I'm bad at names. Anyway, this tour makes you question your decision of visiting Edinburgh. It's full of murdering psychopaths. The tour is great though. Both of...More

Had a fantastic time on this tour! Alasdair is an amazing story teller and super knowledgeable. A great way to learn about the quirky past of Edinburgh while covering a lot of ground.
