Sam was our tour guide and was really knowledgeable. We arrived late, it was cold and it rained the entire time but she was really great. I mentioned that I was an Outlander fan and she showed us some of the filming locations which was an added bonus. This type of tour is a

I am so glad you enjoyed the Royal Mile Walking Tour with Josh. The focus of the Royal Mile Walking tour is Edinburgh's Old Town with a brief overview of Scottish History and in only two hours it is hard to fit it all in. Thank for taking the time to review the tour and I hope you enjoyed the rest of you time in Scotland.
