Our experience with The Edinburgh Expert was wonderful from start to finish! Gareth requested information from us at booking about what we wanted to know, see and do while in Edinburgh. He sent us details about events that were occurring during our stay and there were informational tourist materials waiting for us at our flat when we arrived in town. We spent several hours with Gareth ( and his mighty French Bulldog Monty!) on a private walking tour through Edinburgh. We covered a lot of ground, both geographically and historically. Gareth catered our tour based on our requests and he did not disappoint. Even through the rain, we visited places that we would have never found on our own and learned ways around Edinburgh that we used for the remainder of our stay. Would highly recommend Gareth to anyone wanting to see Edinburgh like a local!

Gareth took us on a morning walking tour of Edinburgh and it was terrific. It lasted approximately an hour and forty-five minutes and was the perfect introduction to the beautiful city as Gareth interestingly explained the history of key sites and landmarks in the Old and New Towns. His knowledge of Edinburgh was fantastic and it was a great way to start my day.

We had a great time with Gareth showing us Edinburgh. The tour started on the grassmarket and took us through the old and new town, up to Calton Hill. A great introduction to the city with loads of tips and info on where to go next!

Gareth is the perfect guide, very knowledgeable with fun facts about the city. I would definitely contact him again if I come back to Edinburgh.

This visit was very adapted to our family. Actually, Gareth the tour guide is a very smiling and welcoming person with a welsh-english accent that is easy to understand for French like us ! Gareth was very patient and had been waiting for us to translate the explanation to our children who are 9 and 12 years old and who have just started to learn English at school.
It lasted 1hour 1/2 so perfect for an introduction to this marvelous city.
