The Old Town architecture tour was really good. Quite a lot of really interesting information and references about Edinburgh´s architecture. The guide was fantastic and we even had time to stop for a nice coffee. Really enjoyed it.
The tour was informative and well-timed with a guide who was both friendly and enthusiastic! I attended with my BSc Urban Planning students at UWE Bristol who really enjoyed the experience. Thank you
Augustine was our guide on this 2.5 to 3 hour tour. She was enthusiastic and gave a good overview of both Edinburgh history and architecture.
We were offered the option to stop for coffee and/or toilet stops along the way. Something that not all other tour company’s tours offer.
When we got to the meeting point we realised that there would just be the two of us on the tour. This can be a bit of a negative thing on some tours. Not so with Agustina who made the tour interesting with just the right level of information given, answering our questions along the way.
I would definitely recommend this tour or any of the other tours the company offers. When we visit Edinburgh again, we will definitely do the Dean Village tour.
We enjoyed our Architectural walk around this city. The history and layers of background that our guide Mohona shared was valuable and interesting. She included the older buildings up to the most recent Scottish Parliament building. A wonderful walk looking at history and stories from Edinburgh.
We live in Edinburgh so it was interesting to look under a different angle and learn new things about familiar places. We really enjoyed our time with the guide especially as it was only 3 of us on the tour. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss the interesting things.
We joined Olga & Christina for a walking tour of Edinburgh New Town. The tour introduced us to the town planning, design and architecture of the New Town. We were novices to Georgian architecture but this added to the enjoyment of the tour. Olga encouraged us to ask questions, express opinions, stimulate discussion and go off at any tangent. We visited places and spotted things which on our own we would have simply have missed. The tour was relaxed and easy going. Highly recommended.
