Was a great tour with Patrice or carol depending on the review. Very knowledgeable, and engaging. Lots of cool facts, and definitely worth doing if you have a spare couple of hours in the evening.

Couldn’t fault the tour guide at all. We went when when it was semi lockdown with covid and there was only three of us in the group. Social distancing had to take place which ruined it sometimes. Would have liked to have spent more time in the vaults looking at the exhibits on the wall.

We learned so much from Ewan our guide on this walking tour. He is incredibly knowledgeable and SO funny, too bad there were a lot of uptight people in our group...we tried to laugh harder to make up for them. Great job Ewan, thanks for the stories that we already shared with other people while in Edinburgh! Highly recommend!
