    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!

It was a great experience getting to know from Stuart about the great City Edinburgh, it's culture, Architecture.

Best guide, even if he is his 80's, good historical background and very enjoyable person

A very interesting tour led by Stuart Usher, who is quite a character.
