We booked a walking tour with Gareth a long way in advance, as we were keen to be able to start our visit with a tour.
What can we say!? Gareth certainly knows his stuff, and was so helpful with any and every question we had in the (long!) lead up to our visit!
We covered quite a lot of ground in the Old Town, although it didn't seem like it. Seeing places we would never have found on our own - and learning so so much about Edinburgh and its history.
Gareth asked throughout what we would like to get from this tour, and didn't disappoint!
We would most definitely recommend you book your tour without delay - don't miss out on this opportunity!

This was a wonderful way to start the day in Edinburgh, and is a great thing to do early in your trip as it serves to frame the experience. The walk isn't too strenuous but you cover a lot of ground and get a look at a side of the old city that is unique. Our guide was great, had a lot of interesting anecdotes, and steered clear of providing the usual potted tour of the old city. Definitely worth doing!

On a typically windy Edinburgh morning Gareth took us away from the Festival bustle for an enjoyable and informative tour. The small group helped a lot as it was easy to keep together and to hear what was said. Booked the tour through the EdFringe website.

Gareth was a fantastic tour guide, including not only the history and facts of the locations we passed but also just enough commentary to give us a true sense of place. He made conversation between strangers easy, and focused his information on things we'd be interested in, once he learned a bit about us. Cannot recommend highly enough!!
