Our guide, Gordon, was personable, funny and interesting and knew an incredible amount about the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. He started by asking us exactly what we hoped to get out of the tour and adapted as required. We were full of questions and he always knew the answers as well as having many interesting or amusing anecdotes that made the tour more interesting than being told a stream of dates and facts. We had a tremendous time and couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thanks Gordon!

Vielen Dank an Brigitte! (ihren Nachnamen hab ich leider vergessen) Sie ist individuell auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen, hat uns einen tollen Überblick über die Stadt verschafft und war sehr bemüht uns alle Highlights zu zeigen! Ich empfehle die Tour sehr gerne weiter, es war super!

Wir wurden pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt. Die Route konnte nach unseren Wünschen oder den sich ergebenden Themen oder Ausführungen angepasst werden. So konnten wir auch eine Whiskyverkostung im einem Store einbauen und auch eine Menge von Schottlands Geschichte und Gegenwart erfahren sowie viele Tipps für die Erkundung von Edinburgh in unseren zwei folgenden Tagen bekommen. Leider hat unser Guide diese Tour auf Grund seines Studienabschlusses zum letzten Mal durchgeführt. Ich hoffe dass der Staffelstab gut weitergegeben wird.
