My sister and I had a great time with Toby, who is extremely knowledgeable about the things we were interested in learning — mostly architecture and history of Edinburgh, but he humored is with some JK Rawlings info and ghost lore. He had a plan based on what we had expressed interest in seeing and we had lunch in a very old Pub. Great Day!
