Go, learn, laugh.

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

Absolutely fabulous way to start my 50th birthday celebrations. Daniel has a real flair for bringing the group together and imparting information about Edinburgh and Scotland with his wit, charm and comedic skills. Hilarious guy. Found places we hadn’t been to before too.

This is a must do activity when visiting Edinburgh. Daniel is one of the funniest blokes I have ever met and to be both interesting and funny for 2 hours solid in the pouring rain takes some doing. The booking and meeting point arrangements were very easy and it was true value for money. This is whey more than a guided walk and I thoroughly recommend this to anybody.

Outrageously offensive and hilarious personal comments combined with a highly honed and specialised knowledge of the nooks and crannies of Edinburgh. Loved it!

This was so much fun. Daniel took time to find out about everyone in the group and immediately the banter began. 😂 never stopped laughing the full 2 hours but still managed to find out the history and stories all be it with his own funny twist. If you need a pick me up with sightseeing thrown in this is definitely the tour for you.

Funniest 2 hour walk ever.

Daniel is pretty unique as tour guides go. He was already waiting with another couple when we shower up 20 min prior to scheduled kick off time. His wit at getting to know his wee group was amazing. A good ploy for maximising tips 😉. We followed Daniel around old Edinburgh like a wee flock of sheep, gathering close at each stop to hear him recant the history of each particular stage in his own comical, sometimes absurd, way. I'm not sure that party members whose first language wasn't English git the full benefits if Daniels rich vocabulary. I've visited Edinburgh countless times and learned a lot from the tour as well as having the best laugh in a long time. Hats off to Daniel, his colourful language and entertaining storytelling.
