We really enjoyed our walk which provided a very good introduction to the history, buildings and people of Edinburgh. He paced the walk to suit us, as we are slower than in our younger days.
Gareth is professional, knowledgeable, articulate and amusing, but also has the rare skill to divulge information in manageable chunks, so that one can absorb the pieces of a complex story.
A marvellous experience

What a wonderful way to see Edinburgh first hand. Garreth was great. He met us at our hotel and we walked for 4 hours all over the city explaining the old and new city and all the sites. My husband has been go Edinburgh before but this tour really explains the city and shows you so much more. Garreth is very experienced and knowledgeable! I would definitely recommend it!

We spent a beautiful Sunday morning with Gareth in the New and Old Towns of Edinburgh. He is extremely knowledgeable and insightful about the art, architecture, literature, politics, and history of Edinburgh. Our four hour tour seemed to fly by and we appreciated the breaks for pictures and taking in the views. We had hoped that Monty the Frenchie could have joined us but he was away for weekend.
Gareth pointed us towards a great lunch at Howies after our tour. We can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this tour! Highly recommended.

My wife and I booked a four hour walking tour (just the two of us) with Gareth the day of our arrival in Edinburgh. Could not have asked for a more informative insight into the Old Town, New Town and surrounding areas. We learned more in the four hours with Gareth than we could have gathered on our own during our entire stay. He is very easy going and obviously enjoys relating the history of his city to the many visitors he encounters. During our stay in Edinburgh we did several other group tours outside the city and without a doubt the most informative and cost effective was Gareth's walking tour. We highly recommend the opportunity to spend some time upon arrival with Gareth to gain the basis of information for a great time spent.in Edinburgh. Great City and a Great time had.
