What you'll do

The Mountebank Comedy Walk is Edinburgh's only comedy walking tour and the only tour of Edinburgh led by a professional, local, stand-up comedian.

This is a walking tour that is 'hysterical' and 'historical' you will laugh a lot and you might just learn a little..!! On this walk around Edinburgh's Old Town I will tell you everything you need to know about Edinburgh, Scotland, and possibly a little you probably didn't want to know about me!

You'll learn some of my other favourite Scottish words, hear stories about great Scottish swashbuckling heroes from William Wallace to Susan Boyle, I'll tell you about our national drink (irn-bru) you'll find out about buckie, shortbread, jobbies, boabies, midgies, Burn's, unicorns, deep fried mars bars and of course the bloody weather!

Come ready to laugh your wee socks off and mind and bring your best banter :)


(PLEASE NOTE: this is a comedy tour aimed at adults with some adult themes and jokes. I’m Scottish so I’ll almost certainly swear too much as well..!! Suitable for ages 16+)

(PLEASE NOTE: I have a thick Scottish accent and use Scottish words, fluent English is necessary to enjoy the tour)

(PLEASE NOTE: no liability is accepted for those visitors who die laughing)
Other things to note
If the date is not available to book it may be because I have reached maximum group size on Airbnb there is usually room to accommodate more guests so please contact me and hopefully I can accommodate

Age restriction - must be aged 16+

I'm Daniel an Edinburgh based comedian and your guide for my Comedy Walk of Edinburgh (SUITABLE FOR AGES 16+). I am a professional stand up comedian and the majority of my material is inspired by Scottish history, Scottish people, Scottish language, Scottish culture, Scottish weather - all things Scottish basically! The tour aims to showcase Edinburgh's best historical characters and stories, you'll learn a little but more importantly you'll laugh a lot!

This is an adult tour there are adult themes and some bad language I have a thick Scottish accent an use Scottish words so if you do not have fluent English then this probably isn't the tour for you.

We did a few different tours during our trip in Edinburgh but this was by far the best! Very funny - had me laughing out loud a lot yet still informative! Daniel is a natural and would like to see him again on one of his stand up nights!

Daniel is hilarious and very knowledgeable. He knows very weird anecdotes from Scottish history, which makes the tour very interesting! This tour is the perfect blend of comedy and historic facts. Me and my friends had a great time. Highly recommend the tour, even if one has done the other history tours/walking tours in Edinburgh!

Daniel’s tour was a brilliant way to see Edinburgh from a different, much funnier, perspective. We really enjoyed that the tour felt like a personal gig, at a time when traditional gigs are very much not happening! More than that the tour had much more history than we were expecting in a place full of great stories and tales.

This is a perfect experience for anyone visiting Edinburgh. Part comedy, part history, part guided tour, all with silliness galore. Daniel makes a real effort to connect with everyone in the group and make everyone part of the experience. And, he’s a total cutie-pie in a kilt!
