Looking for an entertaining way to find out about Edinburgh its history & traditions, then look no further. Yes a guide book can help you plan a tour of Edinburgh. They list the popular tourist attractions in Edinburgh but what they cannot do is give you the real stories and legends associated with places of interest and Edinburgh’s characters. This is where the Saints & Sinners tour guides come in, they bring Edinburgh Alive!! Our experienced tour guides are residents of Edinburgh this gives them unique inside knowledge, and they can also provide helpful tips, most importantly our tour guide can take you to great places in Edinburgh for that behind the scenes look that you would otherwise have missed out on. We can create customised itineraries to suit particular needs.

An excellent tour from guide Peter, a charming Scottish bloke. A very thorough tour of the history of the city: cultural, scientific, literary, and artistic. Well worth the time and money. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in learning about the city (who wouldn't be??!)....More

We had a great tour. Peter's knowledge of his city, its history and legends is extraordinary. He's great at avoiding the crowds and seeking out interesting sites and stories off the beaten track. A lovely man and a very worthwhile tour.

Having been to Edinburgh many times before, expectations were for a few tidbits and lots of fodder. Quite the contrary, Peter delivered huge amounts of new insight that put a wonderful light on Edinburgh and impressed a full time skeptic traveler like myself. Bravo! Well...More

Great tour, very professional, interesting, informative and entertaining throughout. Highly recommended for those who know there's more to life than Harry Potter.

I went on a group tour led by Peter. It was very enjoyable and informative. We stared in the Old Town and ended in The New Town. Even though I had been to Edinburgh before, I learned a lot from Peter's stories.
