Gareth led our group as part of a whisky tasting tour, in conjunction with Jeffrey Street Whisky & Tobacco. Gareth's involvement was in the walking tour that preceded the whisky tasting

The walking tour concentrated on the areas that fell outside the old city walls of Edinburgh's old town. The walk itself had very little to do with whisky, although Gareth did talk about the city's extensive beer brewing history. Despite seeming to have no correlation to the whisky theme, the walking tour was very good.

Gareth shared his knowledge of the history of the city in a friendly, humorous manner. The tour was informative and enjoyable.

Once we returned to the whisky shop, we were handed over to someone else. That aspect of the tour is reviewed on the Jeffrey St. Whisky & Tobacco page.

We found Gareth on the internet, he respondes promptly, and arranged a very nice and informative tour of Edinburgh.
We learned a lot about the history, the traditions, the geology of this beautiful city.
We were guided also by Monty, Gareth's dog, a funny yet sweet tour guide.
Thanks Gareth!

Gareth has good knowledge of his subjects but more importantly has a fun way of sharing it as he shows you the city. Our group of ten explored the city with him and over the ninety minutes learnt about people, places and the buildings. Highly recommended.

With so many options, it can be daunting task to choose a tour of Edinburgh. Luckily, you won't need to worry about that with Gareth. He was extremely friendly, punctual, and always willing to answer questions or add extra insight when asked. My only regret is that I didn't manage to find time to take his tour of New Town! I will definitely look him up the next time I'm in Edinburgh.

Lovely tour professionally and friendly run. The guide on my tour was Gareth and it started with a friendly chat as we waited for others to arrive. This tour concentrated on the old part of the city, and showed lots of things you'd miss by yourself and even highlights the worth of what you'd think was a ramshackle old shed. It was nice going round lanes and places I hadn't visited in the previous 3 days and learning about places I'd overlooked in that same time. I had tickets booked to a comedy so the professionalism completing the route in the time advertised was appreciated. After a friendly chat with Gareth I was on my way. A very friendly informative and fun tour I'd recommend to anyone.
