We had a wonderful day with Martin. He was informative, fun and a pleasure to spend the day with. I highly recommend taking a tour with Martin to learn about all the wonderful things there are to see in Edinburgh.

Martin was delightful and informative. We tend to ask many questions -- always trying to learn about the culture of the place we are visiting. Martin was patient and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our time with him and would recommend him to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

We had a walking tour of some of the highlights of Edinburgh with Martin and enjoyed the tour immensely. Martin is very informative and was able to blend our tour with items that were of interest to Canadians. He met us at the train station which suited us well and the tour departed from there. Martin looked very much the part as he was dressed in his kilt. Our route had to be modified due to a large parade for "Independence for Scotland" plus the rain that came in the early afternoon.

Martin is the best!!! He is knowledgeable, friendly and has good since of humor. He also anticipated our needs like food and using toilets. As soon as we arrived at the Old Course, he took a table with the best spot overlooking the golf course. Then, he drove us around to see St Andrews University, ruins on St. Andrews Castle and St Andrews Cathedral. He explained in details the history of these places. For lunch, he reserved a table for us, so we did not have to wait to be seated. Very organized.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marietta For your kind words. For me it was a joy to tour with your family. Even though Rex.forgot his golf shoes it was obvious that he loved his golf lesson. Haste ye Back Martin

We recently did a walking tour with Martin in Edinburgh and we had the best time! Martin is so personable, charismatic, and knowledgeable - I don't know how he manages to store all of that information in his head. He showed up on time, looking dashing in a kilt, and gave us a wonderful 5 hour tour through Old Town, New Town, and Edinburgh Castle, with a stop for lunch. We highly recommend Martin. The only thing we regret is forgetting to take a picture with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Llinca We had a great time together exploring Edinburgh, I do hope to meet again when you return to this city whenever that happens. Haste ye Back Martin

We went on the "Old & New Town Edinburgh + Harry Potter Private Tour" with Martin and had a great day. We found Martin to be extremely knowledgeable, very warm and personable, and very efficient in getting us around Edinburgh through lots of winding passageways that avoided the crowds. Martin is a great guide, and hours spent with him walking around Edinburgh are hours well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You David It was a joy for me to tour Edinburgh with you Louise and Ella. Haste ye Back. Martin

This was our second tour with Martin. He took us outside Edinburgh and it was nice to see the landscape of Scotland. He is full of information and we learned a great deal about the people, heritage and history. His driver was also a very nice person, courteous and punctual. Had a lovely day.

Martin is a very nice gentleman who knows Scotland and enjoys sharing his knowledge with you. My family was comfortable with him and covered a great amount of the city with him. We had a lovely lunch and his recommendations there were spot on as well. He even gave us a suggestion for dinner which was fabulous and soooo reasonable on top of that. We all very much enjoyed our two day tours with Martin.

Martin is a fabulous guide. He loves his city and made us fall in love with Edinburgh too. Having never been to Edinburgh he made sure we saw and learned about the important sites and highlights but he also customized our tour based on our interests which were medicine and art. Martin is engaging, extremely knowledgeable, witty and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together and highly recommend him as a guide especially if he wears his kilt!
