Because of scheduling issues, we actually did this tour after 4 days in Edinburgh. Although it may have been better timed at the start of our visit, it still was excellent. Gareth was very knowledgeable and took us to places that we wouldn’t have otherwise seen, off the main strip of the Royal Mile. The Scotch whisky tasting was also not our first, but was a nice complement to others we had done. But it was confusing at times, since the scotch tasting included other people who had signed up directly at the store, and who were tasting different whiskys altogether. Perhaps because of this, Hector (our whisky expert) focused more on the history of Scotch whisky than the particular varieties we were tasting. That’s the one thing we would suggest be improved.

My son and I spent a glorious four hours with Gareth. His love of the city and its history was palpable and my 13-year old was captivated. He asked more questions than I did and Gareth was able to answer them all. From the new Parliament building and the base of the royal mile all the way to Edinburgh Castle, we felt like we gained a true insider's perspective of the city. DO make sure you add on the extra stop at the shop for tastings of local wares. I had NO IDEA there were so many amazing locally made cheeses, jellies, gins, etc. What a treat!

We consider ourselves lucky to have had Garreth lead us through Edinburgh for an afternoon. He not only has a great deal of knowledge about the city’s landmarks and history, but also tons of enthusiasm, a keen architectural eye and a good sense of humor. Our walk had a perfect ending with a gin and food tasting at a store specializing in locally produced goods.

We only had one day in Edinburgh and spent it at Edinburgh Castle and then with Gareth on a three hour walking tour with the food experience. We enjoyed it and feel that we got the most out of our time that we possibly could have. We highly recommend this tour!

Gareth does it again! A superbly informative, friendly and immensely enjoyable saunter through areas no other guide can provide. A must!
