When I moved to Edinburgh I started to visit all the attractions to get to know the city I was going to live in and The Real Mary King's Close was probably one of the best!
It is a fun and quick tour of the real old city of Edinburgh, our guide, Alice delivered a fun tour with all the information we needed and answered questions from different people! She was really prepared and was able to engage all participants in different ways (there were children and adults in my group and she paid attention to all of us to make sure we were happy with the tour) If you want to spend an hour walking around REAL old houses and streets then go for it!!
I knew there was a reason why this tour is often sold out (I had to wait a few days to manage a booking), it is just really good!
Overall I would give it a 10/10! The tour guides are fun and available for any problem/question that might arise! The place is super interesting (if you are into history that is) and the information you gain from the tour, you would not gain from any other tour in town (trust me I tried almost all of them) simply because no other tour lets you inside old houses and give you the opportunity to experience life as it was!More
