Under very wet and trying conditions, Cameron, our guide was exceptional in educating us on the architectural styles and treasures of Edinburgh. The tour was extremely informative and Cameron's affable personality and ability to add such interesting anecdotal tales made for a stimulating afternoon. We would highly recommend the tour.

I enjoyed getting to understand the elements of classical architecture of Edinburgh New Town. While really educational, Olga kept it very entertaining at same time. Really recommend it!

Really informative tour for anybody wanting to learn how Edinburgh New Town was planned and built. Olga points various planning and architectural details along the way. There is also an opportunity to visit Queens Street park that is otherwise accessible to residents only. It is moderately paced and the group was very small. There is an opportunity to ask questions along the way. It starts at Register House (very close to Waverley train station) and ends at the Charlotte square.

Olga's tour around the architecture of Edinburgh's New Town was great – as locals we still learnt a great deal about the architectural details and history of the area, and have continued to note details with interest since the tour which we have walked past unknowingly for years.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in architecture or in Edinburgh's history, or who just wants an enjoyable informative walk around the city!
