        I visited Edinburgh for the first time this August, and I was looking for a private tour. This one was everything I was looking for. Brian was knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We spent half the day walking around and talking history, which was fantastic.

        I just had an absolutely spectacular six hours with Gwen. I gave her my vague preferences and a mention of my interest in the medical history of Edinburgh, and she turned that into a jam-packed day of new adventures and experiences. By my second hour in I got visibly excited every time Gwen said she had another "hidden gem" for me to see, because those finds were so consistently interesting and enriching. She is clearly someone who takes her role very seriously, and I couldn't have asked for a better companion for the day. 5 stars.

        In four hours, we saw more of Edinburgh than we ever thought possible and learned so much. He was also incredibly friendly and helpful. Probably Scotland’s best tour guide. Thank you, Richard!

        My wife Barbara and I just visited the delightful city of Edinburgh with City Unscripted, tour guide Gwen. This was our second experience with City Unscripted. Both experts were fantastic. In both cases the guides were highly knowledgeable of the city. They had obviously spent a significant time preparing for our visit. They asked questions on our interests in advance so were right on target with a detailed plan. It was well executed. Gwen was personable, professional, and charming in every respect. She stirred our interest in the destination to the point we’re already planning our next visit. 5 Stars? YES!!!
