Bar Crawl was the most fun experience! We loved meeting people from all over the world and share fascinating stories. We visited some bars and pubs that we most likely wouldn't have found on our own but we absolutely loved the vibe in every single one of them. We would definitely recommend this activity for someone who travels along as it certainly allows you to meet and connect with other travelers.

This is a great way to meet people and see the best night spots in Edinburgh. We thought we were too old but everyone made us really welcome, joked about not needing id and we had a great time

Paul and Hazel were excellent. Lots of great info about Scottish literature and they took us to a few nice pubs around Edinburgh. Would highly recommend

As a solo traveler, this was a fun way to experience the night life of this city and meet new people along the way.

Great night out, met some lovely people and enjoyed a good selection of bars.
