Keiran was a charismatic and charming tour guide who took the individual needs oftour members into account! The tour was amazing value for money and weaved the classic tales of Edinburgh such as Burke and Hare with Keiran's own passions and interests, the many themes and locations meant that the tour was never boring!

Our guide Keiran was extremely knowledgeable on the subject tonight. we were the only guests on this tour in very typical wet nasty autumn evening. Kerian was charming and very personable. many laughs this evening and learned a few more things about Edinburgh dark history. A credit to the company and himself.
