A Recent Review of this tour

Martin is a fabulous guide. His knowledge of Edinburgh is unbelievable. We had his services on Mothers day. He had arranged a tea tutorial at a tea shop. It was perfect. He also reserved a table for us at a lovely restaurant where we could try Haggis and sample Scotch. One of our party had mobility issues but he didn't miss a thing. When we were on a walking tour with Martin his driver Alistair took our friend on a tour around the city that he thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you both for a wonderful day.
