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.

I joined the Old Town tour of Edinburgh with Augustina. Even though I have been to Edinburgh several times and know a bit about the architecture and urban planning there, I saw the city in a new light through the excellent commentary and images Augustina shared. She is an expert in old and new architecture. It was well worth it; I would highly recommend going on a Cobble Tales tours to anyone interested in the city.

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.
