  • "As a university history major and former history teacher, Daniel actually knows plenty, and he delivers it in a canny, stand-up comic fashion, so be prepared for ribald riffs and lots of outlandishness." See review
  • "Well worth doing this tour if you love a good laugh." See review

Very funny. Daniels stories about Edinburgh bring history to life. Really recommend this, horrible history crossed with stand up comedy.

A Tour With A Difference

I wasn't sure at first but warmed to Daniel's humour as the tour went on. It was good fun although I'm not sure the non-Scots understood some of it or could tell what was fact and what was humour! But he definitely knows his stuff. Well worth the money and recommended.

Funny way to get to know more about Edinburgh

This was an amazing tour! The tour guide Daniel was a witty, funny guy who knew a lot about Edinburgh's history. Everyone got joked about, which made it a personal, memorable experience and I can imagine that no tour is the same because of this. I wish I did this tour at the beginning of my vacation instead of the end because Daniel had some good tips on what's cool to see/do. Had a blast! Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Getting a pinch of Scots

Am from faraway place, geographically and culture-wise, and first time in Scotland. Very glad I did Daniel's Comedy Walk - although it cost me a lot sticking out my ears to understand Scottish English and surely regrettably missed some of Daniel's jokes, BUT it's one of the highlights of this Scotland trip - made the entire walking in rain natural and pleasant.

If you’re looking for a traditional fact based tour of Edinburgh old town don’t come on this. If you want a brilliant, engaging, make you smile for the rest of the day tour where facts are delivered in a way you will remember then come on this tour. I know which one I preferred. Daniel is so knowledgeable and really connects with the group and the interaction is great. He gets to know you as you go on the 2 hour walk. I smiled from start to finish with the odd guffaw thrown in for good measure. Highly recommend this tour.

Daniel is a wonderfully entertaining guide -very funny, as would be expected from a professional comedian- with some great historical knowledge of the old town. The tour is highly recommended ...if you have a group, a private tour by Daniel would be well worth the premium

Only a trained teacher could make the history of the Royal mile and mediaeval Edinburgh so interesting, dramatic and amusing. Thank you for creating such a unique and funny 1 and 1/2 hours Graham
