Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Interesting historical tour of the old town, with tales of old traditions and customs. Our guide was clothed in beautiful period outfit that she fashioned herself! Wonderful!

We did the ‘Crime & Punishment’ walk through the old town of Edinburgh. Our guide Charlotte (who originally is from S. Africa) was perfect. Her knowledge of the old town was excellent and her sense of humor and ability to make the walk interesting and enjoyable was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend her to others…

This tour was absolutely amazing! Our guide was very knowledgable about history and had a lot of fun and interesting stories to tell, she really took her time with us and answered every question we had!

We learned a lot about Edinburgh's history, saw interesting sights and visited Outlander filming locations.

I would highly recommend this tour (and honestly any tour by this guide, she was amazing!)

Dear Visitor Thank you so much for the kind words. I had a marvellous time taking you around bonnie Edinburgh. I can't think of anything better than spending an hour or more talking about Scottish History and meeting fellow Outlander fans. I hope you are enjoying the rest of your stay in Scotland and wishing you a safe journey. kind regards Charlotte Walk The Old Town
