This walking tour - Highs and Hidden Lows - went above and beyond my expectations! Immediately after meeting Helen for the tour she asked my sister and I what our interests were, as well as parts of Edinburgh that we were least familiar with, which is not something I have ever gotten from a tour guide before. She pointed out unique details of the city that I definitely wouldn't have come across on my own, and she encouraged my sister and I to ask questions or to take breaks to take pictures at any point.
The highlight of this tour for me was our time at the Greyfriars Kirkyard. This was a location that had been on my list to see for a while, so I was extremely happy to have had the opportunity to go with Helen as our guide. One area of the Kirkyard that I wanted to see most was the mortsafe, which Helen hadn't actually seen herself! Nevertheless, we all were able to look around the Kirkyard until we found it, which, for me, made the trip so special. The fact that Helen was willing to diverge from her original tour plan to help me see something I was interested in made the tour wonderful, and is a great example of how Helen will go above and beyond to make your tour memorable.
Thank you, Helen, for having been willing to customize our tour to our interests, as well as giving excellent commentary the whole way! I definitely recommend Edinburgh Welcome Tours, and look forward to go on another tour with Helen on my next trip to Edinburgh!
