Lesley was our guide and she was superb-full of information but more importantly her warmth and welcome to Edinburgh was superb-I could have listened to that accent all day. I would highly recommend a tour on a visit to Edinburgh.

This was a most informative and interesting tour. I have lived in Edinburgh for many years but I learned so much in one and a half hours! The churchyard is steeped in history and even includes Greyfriars Bobby. Thanks to our tour guide Catoline
