We had a delightful day in Edinburgh with Toby. We saw a great deal, by car and foot (more than we could have accomplished on any ship tour). Toby was a fount of knowledge about the city's architecture, culture, art and history and he brought us to many charming attractions we wouldn't have found on our own.
