Our tour with Martin was terrific. He met us at our hotel and then we walked up to the Castle to tour the castle. He pointed out items of interest on our way to the castle and helped us buy our tickets quickly. He explained all the buildings in the Castle and then let us explore on our own. He then took us along the Royal Mile and other spots explaining the history of various buildings. He gave us a quick tour of New Town and left us with some great recommendations for dinner. A lovely tour!
