We are two families (one had never been to Scotland or Edinburgh before) and interested in history and culture. Therefore we decided on a tour of the Old Town and New Town of Edinburgh.

Gareth, our guide met us at Grassmarket and we went on a great three hour tour. He was very easy to understand, which was important since we are not native speakers, and gave us a lot of interesting information you will not usually get by reading a guidebook. He was also very friendly and adapted parts and details of the tour to our wishes, like skipping places we had already seen and giving us more details and information on topics that we were especially interested in.

We also very much enjoyed the fact that Gareth knows an amazing amount of details about past and present Edinburgh and was not derailed by any of the sometimes quite specific questions we asked.

Considering the Covid-19 situation at the time of our visit, we felt very save and Gareth easily avoided bringing us into crowded environments.

All in all it was a superb tour of Edinburgh with a real expert that we greatly enjoyed and can only recommend to all people interested in the history and background of this great historic city!

Gareth made the perfect private tour for us. We had a great afternoon learning and exploring about Edinburgh with Gareth. He pitches it all just at the right level and had our interest the whole way through. Could have carried on for hours! His stories had us gripped! Thank you so much ....

We took this walking tour with our little 2-year daughter. Really loved it. Gareth is really passionate and knowledgeable guy. Really good storytelling and good route across the old and new town

Our 2-hour walking tour of Edinburgh was thoroughly enjoyable and provided a great insight into the city and its past. I had been to Edinburgh before but learned much I didn’t know as Gareth took us to different sites that you may not normally see or question. Well worth it!
