Traveler Reviews

    We spent our last day in Scotland touring with Kevin. I had never hired a private guide before and so we did not know what to expect. Kevin was WONDERFUL! He allowed us to select the spots we wanted to visit for shopping and dropped us off and waited to pick us back up. He suggested some highlights in Edinburgh we were not aware of and rounded out our tour of the city with visits to these areas. The real highlight came when he learned I was an Outlander fan but had not actually visited any of the filming sights. He spent the rest of the day taking me to all of the sights in and around Edinburgh and some a little further out. He was funny, knowledgeable, and oh so professional.If I come back to Scotland or Ireland I will call Kevin to be a guide for all of my trip!

    We had has a wonderful tour with Taxi Tours. Kevin is passionate about Edinburgh and is keen to share this with his guests. He took us to all the key places plus lots of interesting sites that we had never heard of. We learnt loads of interesting facts that we would never have heard about if we had visited on our own, facts that really brought the city to life. Kevin really does all he can to make your visit perfect. Our flight into Edinburgh that should have arrived the previous evening had a nine hour delay and arrived only at 3 am in the morning. I called Kevin as soon as I heard to see whether we could start our tour a bit later the next day (he did all he could to shuffle things around for us). When we finally arrived at Edinburgh airport in the wee hours I was surprised to see taxis waiting for our flight. It turns out Kevin had called his taxi driving friends to let them know there would be a flight coming in. We never asked him to do this and only found out later. He really goes the extra mile for his clients and I recommend him fully.
