Dear Andy, What can we say about Scotland that is not superlative? We have seen most, not all, of Western Europe 25 times. We found the Scots to be affable, gentle, polite, unassuming, cultivated, funny, and witty. Their history is fascinating and their culture splendid. We spent 7 days in Edinburgh and 5 days on a radius about two hours away. We tried to see everything of cultural and historical value in Edinburgh, sometimes twice. I need not itemize this for you. Our hotel was in the New Town, which is itself a monument. On our days away we went to Culzean Castle, Stirling, the Trossachs, St. Andrews, the Fife Coast, including the bridges across the Firth of Forth, the Falkirk Wheel, Rosslyn Chapel, and the Border Abbeys. I need not describe these in detail either. In short, were you to ask us which of these 25 trips has been the best we would reply without hesitation it was this one. One reason is, in this trip we started with you as our guide and ended the trip with you as our friend. You made every effort to show us places we wished to visit where you had not been before, made us feel at home, and shared with us the history and culture of your captivating country. Again, we thank you. Margarita and Néstor

Margarita & Néstor I am truly humbled by your glowing review. Scotland is a beautiful country and I am glad that I was able to be part of showing you around. I lost count of the number of times that you said "It is just gorgeous." But you are right. And you were great company to be with as you asked lots of questions and the conversation never faltered. Thank you again for taking the time to write your review. Hopefully, we will meet again one day. Kind Regards Andy

Andy put together a wonderful customized 2-day tour for us, based on our interest in WW-II history and the wonderful castles to be found in Scotland. This was my first time in a cab tour, and hands-down it beats any bus tour I have taken in the past. It was great to have the flexibility to make minor detours on fly - for example, on the way to Scotland's "Secret Cold War Bunker", he spotted a castle on the hill that he was not familiar with, and asked if we might want to hike up and check it out - which of course we did, and so we got to see Balvaird castle in Perthshire. Andy is knowledgeable on all the sights and really explained a lot about each location. This was also my first time in Scotland, so that was very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Edinburgh Cab Tours to any of my friends.

Jay Thanks for taking the time to write your wonderful review. Both of you were great company to be with which makes all the difference on a private tour.

Andy showed us the city and was a great guide. He is knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. We felt like we got the insider’s view of Edinburg— the hidden gems, the history and great recommendations for food and pubs. By far the best tour we’ve ever had, and the most personable tour guide. Highly recommended.

I can't say enough good things about Andy and the tour he provided. I booked a custom full day tour to visit Dunnottar Castle for me, my mom and sister. Andy was easy to work with during the planning process, taking care of all of the details including lunch and other scenic stops along the way. On tour day, Andy arrived bright and early with a smiling face and an infectiously positive attitude (did I mention I'm not a morning person?!). We all thoroughly enjoyed Andy's company throughout the day. His knowledge of Scottish history is impressive and certainly helped to paint a more colorful picture of the historic sites we visited. After our castle tour, Andy joined us for lunch at the most charming seaside restaurant and challenged us to try some local staples (trying to revive our Scottish roots). We then ventured on to St. Andrews at Andy's suggestion. We stopped for coffee, shopped at the cutest little bookstore, and got pics at the Swinken Bridge (again Andy's suggestion, we know nothing about golf but boy oh boy, people thought we were pretty cool when we shared those pics!). We made one final stop on our way back to take in the scene at the Forth Bridges. A perfect way to end the day. Our tour with Andy was the highlight of our trip. We can't wait to go back and spend the day with him again. Highly, highly recommend!!

Hi Ali Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review. Despite not being a morning person, I thought that you did pretty well for an early start. I'm glad that we were able to take you back to the roots of your family history at Dunnottar Castle. We managed to add a lot to the day and I'm delighted that you enjoyed my suggestions. Thanks for being a great little group to be with. Kind Regards Andy
