  • Outstanding, truly outstanding tour. Our guide, Kevin met us at the end of the pier and then proceeded to whisk us around town and country side ticking off things we wanted to see and avoiding time traps along the way. At the end of the day my party was exhausted but very happy.

    We managed to approach Edinburgh Castle from the side, climb some steps and reach the top of the Royal Mile without any standing in line. Likewise, we soaked in the view from Arthurs Seat while driving by traffic snarl after traffic snarl. All those delays avoided translate to more things seen.

    Did I mention this was an amazing tour? I highly recommend Kevin for any group that will fit in his cab. I suppose that means 4 people, but 5 or maybe even 6 might fit, though youd have to be very friendly.
