This was a fantastic tour for my family. We booked a 5-hr private tour with Gareth and all of us including my 3 children ranging in ages from 20-11 years were simply enthralled by Gareth’s enthusiastic and animated commentary of the history and stories that make up Edinburgh’s wonderful past. Another bonus for us was Monty (Gareth’s adorable French Bulldog) walking with us on the tour. He was such a sweet, well-behaved and obliging walking companion that day...we were all melted by his charm. Gareth is simply wonderful, very patient, accomodating and more than helpful.

This was our second tour with Gareth and we will be back for more. "Expert" is an understatement! Gareth knows the hidden treasures of the city and no matter how experienced a traveller you are, he will show you places you'd never find.

Gareth provided a well-organized & interesting small-group tour of some of Edinburgh's less touristy areas. He provided lots of historical tidbits & commentary supported with historical photos. He met us promptly at our hotel, customized our walk to suit our interests, took into consideration our walking/stair climbing abilities & provided us with assistance to navigate to our next destination at the conclusion of the tour. Gareth was friendly & personable & clearly loves showing off his favorite parts of this beautiful city. Highly recommend!

When they say this tour goes ahead in all weather conditions, they mean it! We did the tour in full blizzard conditions, but still very interesting and great value. Stays away from the usual tourist areas and gives a great overview of the history of the city
