“Paulina is great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

I have been on Sandemans tours all over Europe and they have all been great but the walking tour today in Edinburgh was the best one I have ever been on. Paulina has the perfect balance of history and comedy that every walking tour needs. Like the title says, Paulina was great and I can not recommend this tour enough.

“Nice Edinburgh tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

It's a really great thing to do. You see all the main sights and also here some stories to them, so you get a little background to everything you see and to the (beuatiful) city and scotland itself! And I really liked the idea of paying in the end whatever the tour was worth for you, so you won't get disappointed about what you get for your money, but you can decide for yourself. Had a really nice and funny guide (David).
Also did a Pub Crawl with them and had an amazing time there! And you could come again and again for the rest of the year without paying again. Met some nice people, really recommend both, the free tour and the pub crawl!

“Look for Jonny, best tour guide ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Digesting Scotland's history has never been that fun and interesting, thanks to Jonny's colorful and playful storytelling. I've been to a lot of walking tours, but he is definitely the best tour guide for me. He will make you love Edinburgh. I want to go back to try the dark side tour next time!
