      Latest reviews from our guests

        Doug did a great job taking us around the city and was very thoughtful and courteous as we navigated the streets of Edinburgh. He was very knowledge and gave us a little bit of everything - history, food recommendations, Harry Potter titbits, bookstores, and more. My mom and I really enjoyed this tour and feel fortunate to have started our trip with this experience.

        Gwen crafted a personalized tour that was absolutely perfect for my grandson and myself. Her extensive knowledge of Edinburgh history, culture, art, and literature, as well as her personal love for the city, enhance the total experience. She held the attention of a 13-year-old boy on his first visit I could not have asked for a better morning.

        Gwen did a great job of showing me lots of places in old town I would have missed on my own and was solicitous of my welfare with the many steps, cobbles and crosswalks without lights. I had a wonderful time. It was a great introduction to Edinburgh, and she made some suggestions of places for me to see tomorrow.

        My mother is a very active octogenarian who wanted to tackle the Royal Mile and Gwen was so attentive and receptive to her needs and limits. We really enjoyed her customized tour with personal entertaining anecdotes about the places on and just off the beaten path. Getting to visit with a local made our trip so much better. Thank you Gwen.
