“Great fun on Sandeman walking tour with Sabella”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

This was our first Sandemans walking tour and it will certainly not be our last. The tour was 2.5 hours long and not at all physically demanding. Sabella, our tour guide, was both informative and entertaining and was able to involve the group in describing some of the historical highlights of Scottish history. She took us to some of the 'off the track' sights that we would not have discovered on our own. All in all a wonderful overview and introduction to Edinbugh for my wife and I.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I had Naomi as my tour guide and she was just great! She was super knowledgeable, spoke loudly and clearly for everyone to hear, and most of all was funny and told great stories to keep everyone interested. Would highly recommend this tour!

“Stellar history tour from Nick!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Sandemans New Europe free city walking tours were recommended to me by a friend and now I can recommend them to everyone else. They're a great way to get a quick orientation of the city and pick up some funny and gruesome stories along the way. Our guide, Nick, did a stellar job today in the hot sun! He has a great sense of humour and delivery, and kept us moving along at the perfect pace. Thanks!

“Distracted & Disappointing”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

My sister and I took a tour with Kiel in April and unfortunately a soccer fight had begun across the street from Edinburgh Castle which totally distracted him. It was very disappointing because it was obvious he knew a lot of information and we really felt we got short changed especially when the day before when we took the free Edinburgh tour the guide was terrific.

Hi Fabulous2008,

I'm really sorry that your guide was so distracted by the fight, and that this resulted in a disappointing tour, particularly as you say, following a significantly better tour the day before. I would only ask given the strength of your previous tour, you would consider joining us again in the future to see for yourself that this was a rare one-off.

Kind Regards
Mark, Sandemans
