I will explain the history and context of the capital of Scotland and point out some of the architectural gems of this ancient city dominated by the famous brooding Castle.

A Recent Review of this tour

My sister and I had a great time with Toby, who is extremely knowledgeable about the things we were interested in learning — mostly architecture and history of Edinburgh, but he humored is with some JK Rawlings info and ghost lore. He had a plan based on what we had expressed interest in seeing and we had lunch in a very old Pub. Great Day!
