I've visited Edinburgh twice. The first time I thought the city was beautiful but full of hidden passages. The second time I resolved to take a walking tour to explore those passages. This tour was a good survey of all the elements of Scottish architecture and the significant buildings explaining the story and history of the city. It was a lot of walking, but it is a walking tour just be aware. I felt like I learned on this tour and understood the layout of the city better. Do this earlier in your trip and it will help you get around for the rest of your stay.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable showing us buildings and courtyards with their histories that we would probably not otherwise have noticed.

A great moment visiting and discovering the secrets of the architecture of one of my favourite cities in my favourite country. Very clear, very entertaining, it's a door opening to more and more discoveries and curiosities. Bravo
