Grant was an awesome tour guide. Good stories at the Underground with just the right mix of history, humor and jumps. Fast paced walking between sites, but was able to keep up.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour lead by Grant. I was pleased to hear whistling and footsteps in the Niddry St vaults and experience the Covnentars' jail. Even though the tour overran we had a thoroughly good time.
