What a good laugh this was, Daniel was hilarious, so funny and the stories of Edinburgh brought to life with his own style of humour. Brilliant fun and such a great idea to make a tour fun!! Definitely recommend.

Daniel is a great host and made the walk around evening time Edinburgh fun and informative. He knows his stuff and is the kind of guy you'd like to have a pint with!

Hands down, Daniel was fantastic. Our family of 5 went on this tour in December, in the cold and dark (although to Daniel it was a warm and balmy night). We didn't quite know what to expect. All I hoped was that my teenagers would...More

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
