Geweldige wandeling over de donkere kerkhoven van Edinburgh en Carlton Hill uitgevoerd door een gedreven gids Greg. Gepassioneerde verhalen over de donkere eeuwen. Super ervaring

Good for if you haven't been to Edinburgh right before but nothing new if you have and pretty slow.

Het wandelen betekende, dat je de straat ongeveer heen en weer terug liep. De gids was dynamisch en vertelde enthousiast. Dat maakte het wel beter, maar ik zal deze trip niet aanbevelen.

Toller Guide Charles, sein Englisch ist gut zu verstehen, man erfährt sehr viel über die Stadt. Die Tour ist sehr ausführlich. Empfehle das Schloss im Anschluss zu buchen, (nochmal 45min) günstigerer Eintritt (16Pf) und weitere Infos übers Schloss.

Gezeigt wurden eher die unbekannten Sehenswürdigkeiten in Edinburgh. Wer also erwartet, durch die Highlights geführt zu werden, sollte diese Tour nicht buchen. Durch diese eher „geheimen“ Plätze geführt zu werden, ist aber durchaus reizvoll. Der Guide war mit viel Herzblut dabei und erzählte sehr interessant. Leider hat uns der Guide auf dem Weg zum Castle verloren, da er sehr schnell voran schritt. Wir haben uns das Castle dann am nächsten Tag allein angeschaut. Da das die letzte Station der Führung war, stellte das aber kein Problem für uns dar.

Our tour was amazing! Our guide was fantastic and personable. We happened to be in Edinburgh during a huge pageant which blocked off big parts of the Royal Mile. Our guide was awesome and guided us all through without losing anyone. Edinburgh has officially become one of my favourite European cities! If you are ever in the city, this tour is an absolute must!

Extremely informative
We really enjoyed the journey that Rachel took us on. Edinburgh has quite a bit to offer, would recommend this in conjunction with a Hop on Hop off tour. Places along the route to use the facilities would have been informative too.

Selve turen var ok, det var til tider lidt svært at følge med en guide, der var skots og snakkede meget hurtigt.

We enjoyed our walking tour of Edinburgh. The Fringe Festival was on which made Edinburgh’s Royal Mile chaotic but the guide managed the situation well taking us down interesting back streets and closes. He was very knowledgeable. If your mobility isn’t good this isn’t the tour for you, lots of steps and hills. The pace was good though our guide catered for older people. Edinburgh is such a charismatic city well worth visiting!!

Improponibile
La guida, una certa Noemi o Naomi, parlava talmente velocemente che nessuno la capiva. Ogni tanto faceva una battuta spiritosa (forse) ma nessuno rideva perché nessuno( 20 persone circa) capiva niente.
