I have taken many walking tours all over Europe and Gareth is one of the best guides. We booked a full day tour of Edinburgh and he took us to all the highlights but also the lesser known, but equally good sights that the printed guidebooks just don't include. He's extremely knowledgeable, personable, and funny, making it a wonderful day. I can't recommend his tours enough.

I booked Gareth for a private tour down the Water of Leith walkway through New Town and Stockbridge. Gareth is extremely charming and has all sorts of interesting historical and trivial facts about places along the way you would either miss or not know about. I cannot say enough nice things about my experience and would highly recommend him for any tour of Edinburgh.

I hired Gareth for a private tour as part of my book research. He was able to tailor his tour perfectly. Even although I'm an Edinburgh resident I learned things I didn't know and we visited sites I'd never seen. I can't recommend him enough.

We took a 3-hour private tour and all enjoyed it immensely. Gareth is extremely knowledgeable about all things Edinburgh (and Scotland more broadly), and shares his knowledge with a light touch and plenty of humour. This is a great way to see some of the lesser-known nooks and crannies of the city and to hear some fascinating stories about its history.

Very manageable group size (7). We did the Old Town/New Town as well as the Royal mile tour. I highly recommend Gareth's tours.
