I did the walking tour of South Queensferry and it was excellent.It is a beautiful town with a very long and interesting history.Mark was an energetic,informative and fun guide.The icing on the cake was being invited into the chuch at the end of the tour by the workmen.I was on the 11.30am tour and so when it finished went for a nice lunch then back to the Museum for a longer look around. It was a lovely day out. I will definitely do the tour again next year and will also look to do the Inchcolm tour when the tours start runnung again in 2020.

Thank you for coming on our Royal Tour. I am glad you enjoyed it and it was a wee bit of luck getting into the Church at the end. I hope to see you on an Inchcolm Abbey walking tour next season.

Absolutely brilliant day on the island. Highly recommend the tour, our guide was very informative, great sense of humour and his singing wasn’t half bad either. I was amazed at just how much history there was within the island. The seals and gnomes were an added honours. I would definitely come back and explore the island again. The boat trip to the island was lovely as well.

Today's "Royal Tour of Queensferry" is definitely to be recommended. The tour was almost two hours but it went very quickly as our tour guide Mark was brilliant. His vast knowledge was complemented by the right amount of humour. We have visited South Queensferry many times but learnt so much about the history and landmarks which we didn't previously know. We will remember all Mark's stories on our next visit and hopefully book the Inchcolm Island trip in the future.

Thank you for coming on our Royal tour of Queensferry. I am glad you enjoyed it. It just shows you can pass by a place lots of times and not know anything about it. I hope to see you on an Inchcolm Abbey tour some day.

Today we took a Walking Tour around Queensferry with Mark. The tour was really interesting and Mark knew so much, I was impressed that he did not need notes! We has happy for us to take photos and answered all of our questions. He was a really personable guide. The pace of the tour was good, not too fast and not too slow, it was definitely value for money! We look forward to taking another tour in the future.
