Flavian is fully invested in his mission to make us discover his adopted city. French by origin, he was seduced by Edinburgh and was able to share his proven knowledge with us. Thanks again. An extension as to the duration should be offered to visitors, 2 hours seems to be somewhat insufficient. I really recommend this "guide". Well done !!!

The tour guide was good. The Lokafy organization is bad.

The tour guide booked first unfortunately only informed us the night before the tour (less than 12 hours before) that he could not do the tour because he did not have any guides available for this time. The reason was that Lokafy forwarded my data to the guide far too quickly, even though he apparently asked Lokafy about this several times. I had already booked the tour in February and was annoyed that something like this should happen. Fortunately, Lokafy was able to organize another guide for the following day at short notice. However, this was only possible because we had extended our stay in Edinburgh by one day. This is the second tour with Lokafy, which was not satisfactory. I no longer have to book tours through Lokafy.
