    As a woman traveling alone with very little time in the area and even less time to plan, I chose MiniMack tours and I’m so glad I did!

    Rowan was charming and polite and instantly put me at ease. His knowledge of the area coupled with his often humorous commentary made the hours fly by. I wish I had more time to do a longer tour with the company!

    I’d definitely recommend the company for anyone looking for a unique tour of the area. Especially if you want to see everything and only have a small amount of time!

    Earlier in 2019, I had a great experience in Edinburgh with this company so I booked the half-day tour to take with my wife. It was a wonderful experience that ended with lunch at a restaurant we wanted to visit anyway. Rowan was a great guide/driver and we saw many parts of the city outside of the tourist hot spots. While the tour is more expensive than many of the big bus options available, it was worth it and we came away with a better appreciation of the city.

    Andy our tour guide gave us an introduction to Edinburgh, we thoroughly enjoyed his stories and all his knowledge. I had my First Scottish Beer at the Rose Leaf in Leith. Andy also gave me a Wee Dram out of a Scottish cup called a Quaich, Andy actually cost me money as my wife insisted on buying one for our home in South Africa. I can recommend Andy for anyone who wants a personalized tour of Edinburgh. PS: Andy, How was your wife's birthday? Did she enjoy the restaurant that you took her to celebrate at?

    Car was a Mini - tour was not. Very personal, relaxed tour of the city. No hurry if you want to linger at a certain stop. Very knowledgeable, friendly guide. Roseleaf pub great for lunch.

    Loved this tour. It was a nice mix of seeing sights, stopping to walk around great locations and an absolutely top rate lunch at a pub. Our driver, Rowan, was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I couldn’t recommend this more!

    This tour should rate among the top 10 things to do in Ediburgh. Yes, the castle is an awesome place. Yes, the Royal Mile is great. St. Giles is a must-see. But spending a half day with Andrew ought not to be missed. We saw places we wouldn't have known to visit. We only had three days to see Edinburgh before returning to London for our anniversary trip. Touring with Mini Mack Tours was perhaps our best choice of the trip.

    Top tier excursion. These two brothers Rowan and Andy operate Mini Mack w/their Mini's. Absolutely most enjoyable excursion we took while on our British Isles cruise. Andy was like our being with a family member. Great educational commentary on Edinburgh as we drove/stopped. Took us places obviously that a bus certainly would never go! Quaint, out of the way places and surely quicker...and FUN! Flexible/asked if we had any definitive want-to-see stops and topped off by a lunch at a local Pub which was soooo good/great experience. We're not tiny people but the tiny car was terrific! Must do when in Edinburgh!

    Our driver Rowan was GREAT! Full of interesting information and history, he is funny, polite, able to adapt to what ever you are interested in seeing. Got a great feel for the city, and lunch at the end in a cool local pub was great. I would absolutely recommend him and this tour to anyone! His car Red Rocket is the cutest mini ever and very comfortable to ride in, even for me in the back seat. Great for driving around the streets of Edinburgh.

    The Mini Mack tour is the very best way to acclimate and acquaint yourself with Edinburgh, especially if you have a limited time in the city. This tour was superb.

    Our local and knowledgable guide, Andy picked us at our hotel and then zipped us around to some major attractions that are a must see, he also introduced us to a hidden jewel of an herbal garden in a lovely park just steps from an old 14th century pub, the Sheep Heid Inn, where the Queen had popped into on a recent trip.

    If we were on foot for the day we would never have been able to access as many wonderful sights or know the local lore. Andy was very affable and easily answered our questions and was open to our interests.

    We finished our tour with lovely a bite to eat in a local pub with a varied menu.

    We would highly recommend this tour, owned and operated by locals, conveying anicdotes only a local can convey, whilst tooling around in a peppy Mini Cooper! Thank you Andy!

    Excellent tour! Andy and Rowen were great and we had a very unique experience in Edinburgh. It is the best way to be introduced to the city and also to experience some non-tourist sites and gardens. The place where they took us for lunch was also very good.
