Perfectly tailored to our expectations...

Our guide, Gordon, was personable, funny and interesting and knew an incredible amount about the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. He started by asking us exactly what we hoped to get out of the tour and adapted as required. We were full of questions and he always knew the answers as well as having many interesting or amusing anecdotes that made the tour more interesting than being told a stream of dates and facts. We had a tremendous time and couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thanks Gordon!

Edingburgh in 3 hours - it couldn't be better - great

We were picked up from the hotel on time. The route could be adapted according to our wishes or the resulting topics or designs. We were also able to install a whiskey tasting in a store and learn a lot about Scotland's past and present as well as a lot of tips for exploring Edinburgh in our next two days. Unfortunately, our guide did this tour for the last time due to his graduation. I hope that the baton will be passed on well.

Very good!

Many thanks to Brigitte! (Unfortunately I forgot her last name) She responded individually to our wishes, gave us a great overview of the city and was very keen to show us all the highlights! I highly recommend the tour, it was great!
