What people are saying about Edinburgh

Extremely informative and very interesting. Well worth the money

This tour was so interesting and given with such enthusiasm by the guide. I would recommend this to anybody visiting the castle the only problem was trying to retain the information given. My advise would be to do the tour early in the day to give you sufficient time to look around after it is complete. We did it at 13:30 and had to be away by 16:00 which meant we couldn't enjoy the museum etc. So will have to go back another time.

Absolutely fantastic experience I will never forget!

Our guide, Gregor, was just the best! He provided almost constant entertainment during the drives from stop to stop - from historical tid bits to relevant music to jokes - it was so much cooler and more exciting than I'd expected. I highly recommend this tour and if you get Gregor, you scored big! Each stop was incredible, the lochs of Scotland are breathtaking and inspiring. Staying the night in Inverness was wonderful - a nice smaller town and a welcomed change of pace from the hustle and bustle of London where we were the previous week. Plus Inverness is gorgeous. We stayed close to Ness Bank and the river at night and in the morning was so calm and peaceful. I will miss that place and can't wait to go back! And the food was amazing too! We ate at Johnny Foxes and the haggis stuffed chicken was one of the best things I'd eaten the entire vacation. Gregor also recited Robert Burns' Address to a Haggis on the way back to Edinburgh which was pretty cool!

Excellent tour brings some life and excitement to the experience

The guide (Australian David) was terrific, engaging and brought the tour to life. Lots of great information and amusing antidotes. Well worth the cost.

Charming tour that we highly recommend, especially Harry Potter fans!

We went on a larger tour the day before and much prefer this tour. Large van, great driver, Allan, learned history, saw historical sites, and kids loved Alnwick! They had broom flying lessons and more:).

Green, wet, educational - and worth every penny!

Alistair and Marty (our guide an d driver) gave myself and the other guests a truly memorable experience. Have you not ventured outside og Edinburgh, treat yourself to the Hairy Coo (hairy cow) tours. And perhaps you'll be lucky to be hosted by the above two.
