I did the 5 hour tour with Olga and loved it all. Despite the difficult weather. Olga reached out to us the day before as the weather forecasts were slightly dire. But as the prospects improved, we set out as scheduled. I am a retired city planner and enjoyed the background of the old and new Edinburgh. As the tour progressed I got to see the historic architecture and the more recent efforts to fit in with the context. I got to see back alleys and Closes and learned the history of efforts to save the old town from destruction. Things I would never have noticed without a trained eye as my guide. I enjoyed Olga's insights and appreciated her dialogue with the entire group. Lunch in a historic library was an added bonus. Even in the rain, I can't think of a better way to spend 5 hours in Edinburgh.
