A Recent Review of this tour

Toby picked us up promptly and we started our tour of Rosslyn Chapel, Craigmillar Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Rebus and Harry Potter sites, Old Town and New Town. Toby was engaging, knowledgeable and personable. We had to change some of our plans because the Queen was in residence and some areas were closed but he still managed to keep our tour flowing smoothly.
