The guide was very knowledgeable and gave the information in an interesting and enjoyable way. Other tours focus more on a performance but this guide just concentrated on explaining the historical events

What an experience! Gripping & interesting from start to finish. Maggie our guide was sensational. So knowledgeable, fantastic content and her personality made it all come to life. Already planning to rebook with other family members it was that good!!! 10/10 for us!!! If you're 'sensitive' at picking up on energies then you're in for a treat in the vaults.

Before I slate it may I just say that I did this exact tour 10 weeks ago with my daughter and tour guide Darren and I rated it 5 stars. This time was with my wife and we got a different tour guide and it was terrible. I just can't find anything good to say. She seriously needs some knowledge and presentation training. Hour and a half of misery! Very amateurish.

Wow! We was enthralled by the knowledge, enthusiasm and attention to detail by our guide Tuesday. Everyone who visits Edinburgh should book this as a must see. Pulling no punches, Tuesday enriched myself and 2 sisters with her vast knowledge of the true history of Scotland at the time of McKenzie and the poverty suffered in the vaults. Being English I never knew much about how Edinburgh evolved and the structure of the land and the suffering of many poor people. It left a thirst for more and I've since ordered history books on what Tuesday highlighted. She was amazing! Thank you Tuesday, it was my sister's 60th Birthday present to visit your amazing city and you really managed to bring history alive for us on the 10th August.
