Had a great tour with our guide Sabela. This was one of our best tours during our visit, explaining a lot of scottish history mixed with some really funny stories.

I've taken Sandeman's New Europe tours in five cities now, and Australian David's tour of Edinburgh has to be my favourite thus far. The tour is a combination of fact and fun, and David's mannerisms are great. He speaks well, clearly, and is absolutely comprehensible,...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

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
