Great overview of the city.
Oct 2021
Much enjoyed our recent tour with Rowan. Not only was he knowledgable about his city and it’s architecture he had a good sense of humour which is always a good sign.
Not only did he take us to the more obvious places a visitor would enjoy seeing but also took us to areas off the beaten track. We much enjoyed our visit to Dr Neil’s garden located in the village of Duddingston, a botanical delight with lovely views of the adjacent loch. Open to all with no entry fee it is a delight with the added advantage it is next to the lovely 12c Duddingston Kirk.
Thanks Rowan for a memorable trip.

Fun and informative tour!
We just came back from an amazing morning with Andy seeing and hearing about all the beautiful sights in Edinburgh. Being in the mini was a lot of fun and enabled us to get to areas we wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise. Andy is extremely knowledgeable, being born and raised here. Super friendly, can’t wait to come back and try his other tours !!

A great way to see Edinburgh!
Dec 2019
This was a wonderful tour around more "far reaching" sites than I wanted to walk. Rowan did a great job sharing history, architecture, and stories about his lovely city. I would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to find some of Edinburgh's more hidden areas that aren't on the regular city site seeing busses. It is wonderful that Rowan and his brother will personalize your tour for your needs. I will be using Mini Mack Tours again when I return to Edinburgh in 6 months to see more of this beautiful city.

We spent the last day of 2019 with the lads (brothers Andy & Rowan) of Mini Mack Tours beep beep beeping around Edinburgh. It was a brilliant day and exceptional way to see the sights, with local knowledge and far from feeling touristy. Thanks boys!

You couldn't ask for a more fun and informative way to be introduced to Edinburgh! These boys know their stuff and they will entertain you from beginning to end with their banter and tips on what to do and where to go in their beloved city. Although we only spent two hours with these Scots, we benefitted from their insight and advice for the duration of our stay. This is by far the best tour company we've encountered in the U.K. Thank you, boys! You made our stay so very enjoyable and memorable.

A perfect way to see the city.

Hi! This two hour tour was such a wonderful experience and I believe it is due to Rowan's love for his country. He was so kind too. It was great to see the city with someone who is a native. We definitely recommend and totally worth it.

A Mini Adventure!
Thanks to Andy for a great 2 hour tour of the city. This was a great way to see all the main sights and some of the lesser known ones, that we would never have found on our own. Being a personal tour gives you the freedom to spend more or less time at certain locations and is a lot more interactive compared to a group tour. We really got a feel of the city and even went away with some great recommendations of where to go during the rest of our visit.

Amazing family fun!
May 2019 • Family
On a 2 day road trip with my twin boys Benito and Valentino to celebrate their 10th birthday. Andy collected us and whizzed us around Edinburgh in style tailoring our 2 hour tour to suit the interests of the boys & mum, so there was a lovely blend of Harry Potter, history and culture! Andy is so knowledgeable and we felt like a great friend had collected us and treated us to their stories of Edinburgh and it's wonderful surroundings. A warm, welcoming and quite lovely experience. If you get the chance to meet the Mini Mack Team, don't hesitate - you'll have an amazing time!
A presto Andy!
