An enjoyable morning

Stewart, our guide was charming & had a great knowledge of the history of Edinburgh. Due to Covid rules he wasn’t allowed to accompany us into the castle so we didn’t have him for a large proportion of the morning which was a shame.

Dear Carolyn Thank you for your nice Review. It was indeed a shame that I could not get a ticket, try as we might, to accompany you all into the Castle because of the Covid Rules. I was v pleased that all your grandchildren appeared to really enjoy the Tour. Best wishes Stuart U

We had a wonderful tour with Mr. Usher! He was so informative. We saw so much of the city and learned so much. He went above and beyond when he saw I had a list of places to see. He actually took us by car to see the last few things on my list...pretty special! I’d highly recommend this walking tour. Loved every minute!!!

The tour was informative and the guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back. Viator is not an efficient means of communication, however. Sol don’t assume the service will receive notice of a schedule change timely via email.

The pace and breath of the tour could be improved. I didn't feel we saw or learned much more than a few anecdotes for a four hour walking tour.

We enjoyed our tour of Edinburgh under the capable guidance of Mr. Usher. He knows the city and its proprietors well. He has a wonderful grasp of history and its significance for current events. He is eminently likable. He took us places and told us things that we would have missed otherwise. Spend your first day in the city in his company and the remainder of your time will increase in enjoyability.
