The guide cancelled one...
Sunaina_K

The guide cancelled one hour before the tour- and it’s very understandable that emergencies happen but the mode of cancellation was an email. Given the extreme last minute nature one would expect a phone call but nope- I waited around for the guide for 5 min and then decided to call the tour company but the phone was busy and that’s when I saw the email sitting in my inbox from just an hour ago. Needless to say will never be utilizing this company.

Svend is the best!

This is a wonderful private tour that really gives a great overview of Edinburgh. Svend-Erik was a perfect guide who told many interesting stories, kept the conversation flowing effortlessly, and intermittently gave us options on choices for where we would like to go during the 3 hours. Our family enjoyed this tour very much and we highly recommend it for an overview of this beautiful city.

Laura gave us a superb tour of Edinburgh, giving us snippets of information and leading us through common and less inhabited parts of the city. She was easy to get on with and gave us insights only available in a small group and by a local person.

Laura was a great guide and she gave us a good introduction to Edinburgh. Our group included 2 seniors, and we appreciated the flexibility to their pace. Our guide showed us both the major attractions of the city plus, of course, the hidden gems. Thanks, Laura!
