    Stop: 60 minutes
    You will be guided through the grounds of Edinburgh Castle. It is worth to note that we can not take you inside any of the Caste Buildings (no tour operator can) but we will give you the rich history of the Castle, it's place in Scottish history and many of it's more unusual tales so that after the tour you will be able to explore the Castle with a much deeper understanding than a casual visitor.

I was sceptical of having a guided tour and thought it would be a dreary experience. I was WRONG.
Rich, our guide, was informative, entertaining and provided so much information within 90-100 minutes.
When you include the castle entrance fee within the total cost, it is very good value for money

Had a fabulous tour this morning given by Richard who was wonderfully insightful. His knowledge on the cattle was incredible and I left having learnt far more than I thought I could. His upbeat delivery of the history made the time fly and I would highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh

We undertook this tour of Edinburgh Castle with Little Fish Tour Company with the very entertaining Alan as our guide. Alan was very thoughtful of everyone’s needs, especially when a couple in our group lost their tickets! Alan was very quick to rectify the situation so as not to impact on the rest of the group. Alan was also extremely interesting and shared his knowledge throughout the whole tour. We enjoyed the tour so much that we would highly recommend Little Fish Tours if you are intending to visit Edinburgh. Excellent value!

My favorite part of the tour was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and had a great attitude when talking about historic events that had occurred.
The whole group felt at ease and interested when he was explaining events that had taken place. It is unfortunate I cannot remember his name but it was the 13:30 tour on Thursday 22nd of July.

Our tour guide John knew everything about this castle, Edinburgh, and Scotland. His stories were very entertaining, distracting us from the bitter cold day, and his suggestions of what to make sure to see were spot on! He also has a great sense of humor and used it in his anecdotes. I would highly recommend this tour, as the context given helps you better understand the castle's history and importance to the city.

Steph was a very humorous and theatrical guide who was very knowledgeable of The Castle/Edinburgh and it's history. She was loud enough for our group of 10 seniors.
We loved her overall. Wear your most comfortable walking shoes as we walked 13,000 steps on concrete of cobblestones.
We had paid for "skip the line" but got only her castle tour. Had her tour not been so good, we would have felt upset that we paid but we didn't "skip any lines".
The line for the Crown Jewels moves very quickly, so no worries.
Highly recommend it. They just need to change type of your name.

The Edinburgh Castle Tour is a must see while in Edinburgh. The price is relatively low for all you can see and do. We spent 2 hours here not fully taking in everything it had to offer. There is so much in the castle that we just didn’t feel like reading everything! We didn’t upgrade to a self-guided tour, and this was probably a mistake. We even noticed that drinks in the gift shop were cheaper than the going rate at all the local coffee shops. I would suggest wearing comfortable shoes as the ground is always changing in height and material. Also, we booked for 9:30 and it looks like that was the first available time slot. The crowds got larger as the time went on.

Our guide Richard was fantastic. He bought the history of the castle to life with his passion and knowledge. He engaged all the members of the group and related his stories to all the different nationalities. Absolutely fantastic trip and just long enough with time to explore the castle independently after.

My daughter (22) and I took the walking tour of Edinburgh Castle with Little Fish Tours and Steph was our guide. The meeting point was easy to find, the pace of the tour was perfect and the information was fascinating. Steph was an amazing guide with a loud voice (so everyone could hear her), a great sense of humor, fantastic accents (her native Scottish is charming and her British was actor worthy) and a brilliant talent for storytelling. We both really enjoyed everything about this tour and the price was a bargain for the whole experience. Would definitely do it again and will highly recommend to friends and family.
