Although I have been an Edinburgh resident for over thirty years and had even walked along much of the route, I found this tour (taken as an Edinburgh Fringe event) gave me a great new insight to the buildings, ruins and sights along the way.
Our guide, Olga, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and welcomed questions at every stage. The leaflet supplied, with photos of sights to spot, generated some healthy competition!
After this introduction I intend to do some more background reading about the characters we were introduced to and repeating the route with a better understanding of the history of this interesting part of the city.
And I look forward to trying their other tours too.
