London Dungeon

On Sunday I was invited by Love Popups London to check out the London Dungeon tour. Last time I attended the London Dungeon is about 11 years ago, so I was curious to see if anything had changed with this popular tourist attraction. We arrived a little before our noon time slot and got to…

Glencoe, Loch Ness And Highlands Day-Tour

I’ve never done touristy day tours before, so I was a bit unsure of what to expect when I embarked on Timerbush Tours‘ 12.5hr Highlands tour. The tour promised to be one of the longest and most comprehensive day tours out there, so I was a bit weary at first. We were greeted by our guide…

Edinburgh – Underground Ghost Tour

One of the tours I did with Merkat Tours during my trip to Edinburgh was the Ghostly Underground tour. This one starts in the centre of the Royal Mile, with our energetic guide walking us through closes while telling us haunting stories about the history of the Old Town, before taking us to the old vaults under…

Edinburgh Castle

As part of one of the amazing Merkat Tours walking tours, we got to skip the line at Edinburgh Castle and were treated to a short tour. After that, I grabbed an audio guide (absolutely worth the money!) and struck out on my own. The castle sits strategically on top of a hill, so the views from the battlements…

I booked my time slot a few weeks ahead and showed up about 15 minutes before the alloted time. There are toilet facilities and a café and souvenir shop available at…

Canterbury Tales

Tours run quite often and include a free audio guide thingy, which is super helpful in hearing the actual stories being told. Our group was led into the first room, which is the inside of…

Canterbury River Tours

I took a trip to Canterbury with a small group of friends recently and we decided to do quite a bit of the tourist program. One of the obvious stops is a river boat tour! Such a cheesy cliché, had to be done! We picked a random time slot and were led down a few…
