Robert was charming and full of information. He was especially attuned to our wishes and made sure we saw what we wished. A couple of shops we wished to visit were added to the excellent tour around and through edinbrough. He was a perfect ambassador for his city and we hope to visit and ask for him again.

Without a doubt the best tour we have ever taken with T by L (all of which have been excellent). I was concerned when we got into an old London cab but it was amazingly comfortable. Robert was an unending source of interesting stories about Edinburgh. He limits his tours somewhat but I would urge anyone going to Edinburgh to try to book him. I have never taken the time to rate a tour but he was well worth the slightly higher cost of a large expensive bus tour with dozens of people that cruise lines push.

Robert was true to his bio description. I loved that he has been a taxi driver for 31 years and a native of Edinburgh. Wow! What a superb combo! It was really fun and comfortable in his large old style black cab. When we stopped to see something people were taking pictures of the cab. I definitely recommend this tour. We had 4 people but 5 would have worked fine. That's the max on seats and belts. Thanks again Robert for a wonderful tour!

Our tour in Edinburgh was absolutely wonderful. We were in an old London cab (which was a bit crowded for four people but still charming). Bob McCulloch entertained us with wonderful stories about Edinburgh and certainly was able to tell us all the history of the town and area. We always love Tours by Locals, and this one lived up to our expectations.

Bob was fun and full of stories. He met us in his British taxi which was in keeping with the Edinburgh theme. We did not have anything we really wanted to see other than we had had an Edinburgh tour the previous day. He showed us little areas that tour buses could never navigate and along with that stories that were really interesting. He even took us to the oldest pub in Scotland as I told him I wanted a Guinness beer. It was an enjoyable day and he made it so.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello Judy thank you for your kind review Best Regards Bob

Robert (Bob) did a great job on our Edinburgh tour. He gave us a lot of local background and made our exploring very enjoyable. Also he was very accommodating to our needs. He took us to a rental car location and the picked us up after parking near the cruise ship terminal. I would strongly recommend Bob.

We had a fantastic day with Bob! He took us to the Castle and told us about it giving us stories of the inhabitants and towns people. We enjoyed learning about the Royal Mile from a humorous perspective. Bob was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails. He arranged a van/ driver to accommodate our party of 7 which was perfect for touring and our driver, Alex, drove us safely to our destinations. Bob's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful time

Wow, Robert was spectacular! He created a great itinerary based on his questions and our input for a perfect tour of Edinburgh. And he included the two most historic parts of the city (joke- you'll have to ask him to show you)! And he pushed the tour over his allotment so we could experience the Rosslyn Chapel slightly out of town which we were s happy we did!

A very nice gentleman with good knowledge of the area. If you use him plan out the the sites to visit in advance. We didn't and it probably made for less of a tour. That was not his fault, but ours.

Bob McCulloch is a wonderful guide who gave us a fantastic city tour during our first visit to Edinburgh. He is also a great gentleman who will stay in our hearts for years to come. Bob showed us the highlights of this fabulous city with a wonderful introduction of where all of the sights are, the history of the city and Scotland, and most importantly to us, the amazing history of golf in Leith and Edinburgh. A day with Bob was the perfect end to a wonderful cruise. We were delighted with our choice.
