Our guide was very informative about the historic landscape and the remarkable architecture in this area. She was able to answer all our questions and she had a real passion for her subject. We had a great walk along the beautiful Water of Leith and even saw a kingfisher.

Our tour guide, Nick, was great. He was very knowledgable, easy to keep up with (I am a complete novice to architecture) but challenging to others, and made exploring the city a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you Nick!

Really excellent and informative private tour. Nick (a PhD Architecture student) and my architect father found lots to talk about in the planning and detailing of the New Town, but the tour was also fascinating for the rest of us. Even though I have lived in Edinburgh for years and spent ten years working for a cultural conservation charity based in the city I still learned and saw new things and really enjoyed Nick’s enthusiasm and extensive knowledge. Highly recommended by us all.
